Musings on m
y life as a busy opera singer, voice teacher, photographer and mom - not necessarily in that order! I consider myself immensely fortunate to have carved out a way of doing all of these things which mean so much to me - it may sometimes get a little crazy, but it's always worth it. Welcome to the madhouse!

Umm... WOW!!

Taken on Thanksgiving day, a chance capture when I spotted the frozen leaves while outside clipping herbs for the turkey. This piece of ice fell off its perch and shattered into smithereens seconds after the shutter was snapped.

I am, to say the least, delighted by the outcome!

That's an awesome photo! How cold was it to have laid sheets of ice on your window?

Actually, it wasn't on the window. We have a plastic cover over the table on the deck behind the house, and some water had pooled on that and then frozen - with the fallen leaves - into a small sheet. I propped it up on the deck rail, took this first shot, stopped for a moment to check it before taking the rest I had in mind (I wanted to hold it up and shoot THROUGH it among other things) and... SMASH. It was gone. But at least it served me well before it fell over! lol
