There is not enough time in a day, a month or a year
to appreciate everything around us. 

This post was inspired by the Daily Post.

Fun Times

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge:
“Today Was a Good Day.”

We are always happy to visit Traverse City, Michigan. Traveling by boat is the only way in my opinion, because the water and the scenery in Grand Traverse Bay is gorgeous.
It takes us almost three hours to travel from Lake Charlevoix to Clinch Marina where we were docked. In this mini “mesh” photo gallery is a pic of a sail boat, and my husband on our power boat. Also, at Clinch Park, I quickly grabbed my camera to capture the cutie patootie toddler, who at first, seemed to be walking all alone. I love taking pictures, and there are lots of opportunities to capture beautiful sunrises and sunsets too.

Look forward to posting more soon.

Inspiration Therapy

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

Inspiration to create can come from where I feel balance. Balance in a color scheme I’m working on, or even in that feeling of accomplishment. Completing a challenging day at work, then returning home to receive a big hug from my husband where he meets me at the doorway, every day. And of course, the colors of the light, softly painted into an amazing summer sunset at the Northport Marina.

What inspires you?
Thanks for reading! YOU are awesome! Bye for now,
~~Tresa

Anchor Your Happiness

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”

Anchor

Sunrise at the Marina at Northport, MI — Photo by Tresa Meyer Clark

A customer of mine told me that anchors have a lot of meaning to her and that she was having some health issues. When I asked her to explain, she said, “an anchor is a symbol of strength and stability.” She inspired me to make more anchor jewelry and I wrote this.

Anchor your happiness, anchor your love.
Anchor your faith, hope and healing, from the stars up above.
From the heavens to the sea, anchor happiness,
Anchor your dreams.

Treasured Moments

Photography Class – Day Three

Today, let’s focus on the water and your relationship to water. We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.

hard work then boating fun

This is one of my treasured photos of my husband and my Dad. A moment in time captured as they were yukking it up. They had just finished a technical project on the boat and it was time to relax and enjoy the evening with family and friends.

I captured this image with my amazing IPhone 5S.

Thank you for reading and liking, yes liking please!

I captured a lot of moments on my IPhone this past summer on the Great Lakes with my family. It was a bit hazy that afternoon in August. I uploaded this stunning wooden boat picture to my Instagram page and used a filter to enhance the colors.

So adorable.
He just needs a wooden boat for the next photo shoot.
Most dog lovers have at least two dogs on board.
This guy was alone and wanted attention.
