Beautiful Things Photo Walks by Kristin Wallace

Secret Place
About a year ago I started a fun photo project. I walk around my neighborhood or anyplace I happen to be and take pictures with my iPhone. I look for little things that anyone else might miss. It could be a scatter of fallen leaves or the roots of a tree. Unusual things, different angles, super close-ups. I am usually drawn to bright colors and patterns. I post my favorites on Pinterest, with cute titles.

I showed my pictures to a friend who is a professional photographer and he seemed impressed. Said I had a good eye, which I appreciate since honestly I have no idea what I’m doing, other than finding things make me stop and look closer.

Thought I would share a few here.

  1. Kristin, what a fun project! So many times I see something or walk past something that catches my eye and don't even think to snap a quick picture. It would actually be a great thing to do for my Instagram. The one fun project I've been wanting to get started on for so long is restoring/renovating an old doll house I picked up at an antique shop. It's a big wooden one with 6 rooms and it needs new carpeting, wallpaper and furniture. It's something I've wanted to do for years and after I finally found the house I've yet to find the time to start it. Maybe in between book projects but I'm not giving up. Great post!

  2. Love it! Thank you for sharing some of your photos, Kristin.

  3. I love to take photos when I walk, too. I never know what I might run across.

  4. Love the picture of a secret place. I am too slow with the camera or cell phone to take a lot of pics

  5. Fun pictures! I love to take pictures when I am out and about. Luckily, nowadays phone cameras take good pictures.
