Photographs with inspiration

From quiet moments come beautiful ideas. Today’s photographs are the fruit of ideas that came in quiet times.

Last  summer, I started to reprint  favorite photographs of my cousins and  added for fun, captions. I had such a great time creating and sharing them!  My family enjoyed this style and I did also. That was the beginning of of  text printing on my photos. I also wanted to use text on my public photos for a deeper meaning. I like to find inspiration in quotes.

These photographs show you how one can marry photos with the written word. You can print text on photos with any photo editing software or website. Mine came from Picasa.



The butterfly on the lawn chair…


A bee  in our garden. The bee is enjoying the prosperity found in the pollen and (I am sure) is rejoycing..


An excellent thought about Photography.

Taken from the garden at home, looking up at the clouds. I pointed up and let the leaves frame the clouds.

Taken in Notre Dame cathedral, Paris last year.

Think of a good prayer, thought or image and pass it on to someone today.

Wishing you a wonderful week and see you in October on this blog.

  1. Wow.
    Seriously. I don’t know what to say BESIDES ‘Wow’. They’re amazing–and the thoughts attached to them……perfect for the piece.
    They’re really wonderful. I adore the butterfly simply cuz I’m a fan. And that bee one, perfect! Absolutely perfect!
    I’d struggle picking a photo AND settling on a quote. And I’m just not that good at fooling around with photos. LOL

    1. Hi Mel,
      Thank you my dear. Your “Wow” is flattering. These are all for the showing and no need to pick or rate.
      I could literally spend hours combing “Brainy quote” or “Think exist” and then a uiet photo will be going “Psst” to me.
      ANYONE CAN play with editing. I had an aversion to doing this 3 or 4 years ago and now? It is COOOL!!

    1. Hi Zhu,
      Thank you for your appreciation. I find this totally ripe to many possibilities, some of which I may not even realize.
      I love both documentary and still photos. Docs make me appreciate the fleeting moments as they are actually happening and stills make me appreciate a fraction of a moment, frozen forever.
      Bises :).

  2. We have something similar 🙂 I do this too, only difference is I don’t print them. I guess I should. Loved all of the photos above Barb but what struck the most was the black and white photo of the lily pond, such a beauty added with a great quote.

    1. Hi Jocelyn,
      So nice to see you. I am touched that you enjoyed these. I could sit a long time and do others.
      Aren’t these types of photo great? I will try and make new ones now and then. Make even try a minimalist approach ( one word).

      Take care :).

    1. Hi Mitzie,
      Thank you so much. I have found another passionate aspect of Photography; using text artistically!
      It is fun and anyone can do this.

      Chères to you!

    1. Hi Sartnada,
      Thank you very.much. I really enjoy doing this type of editing. If I can make some smiles or stir up some inspiration, I am honored.

      Be well :).
