Back from my tour of west Michigan beaches and I must say I had a wonderful time hiking and swimming in Lake Michigan. Fresh from spending every waking hour immersed in the out-of-doors– today I would like to share with you some splendid photos by Natasha AKA *etoile* on Flickr. The light is soft and the colors are vivid. Her photos have an almost surreal feeling. I am totally inspired to pick up my old hobby of photography again. I learned photography back when I started college, using my grandfather’s Nikon SLR. Developing and processing my own film and prints in a dark room was an experience I’ll never forget. I’ve wanted a digital SLR for awhile now– I’ll have to start saving up! Check out Natasha’s Etsy Shop to purchase photos for your wall!
