“Adopting Mayfair was as Natural as Taking a Breath” ~~ Lisa Kaser

“Cotton Candy” by Rachel Ballard. All rights reserved.
Recently, I had a chance to ask the lovely Rachel a few questions about her upcoming photo e course “Bloom.” Â I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for new ways to become a better photographer and Rachel’s new course has me really intrigued. The thought of actually being able to use the “manual” setting on my camera makes me giddy. And let’s face it, any time I can do something in my pajamas, well. . . sign me up!
But I’m also a bit nervous about taking a course in photography. What if I’m not good enough? What if it’s all math and I don’t do math! What if. . . So, I put my questions to Rachel and she was gracious enough answer. You’ll find she’s warm and funny, just what you want from an instructor. Read on, my friends. . . you won’t regret it!
(I know several of my Evidently readers will interested in reading about this course! So, I thought I’d give you all a head’s up. The full interview can be found on Mireio!)

Welcome to Summer! It’s about time, right? I’ve been waiting for lovely balmy weather and it’s finally arrived here on the north coast of Oregon. It’s still grey out there, but it’s deceptive. Warm rains and gentle breezes have replaced the gale force winds of winter and I couldn’t be happier.
This week’s The Best of Etsy is in a slightly different format. I’m experimenting and we’ll see if it sticks. I thought with this new season it might be fun to make the list a bit more visual. So I’ve included a gallery with the links in addition to the top poster photo. If you’re looking for the usual banter that goes with each pick, you can still tune in to my twitter stream where I’m witty in 140.Â
