Art Roundup, week of May 28th

Last week brought the last photograph from my trip to Niagara and Gettysburg. It’s my fervent hope that I brought you a step closer to the beauty of both locations. Fortunately, life is full of amazing experiences. Not that long ago, I took a stroll around Kingstowne Lake. Despite taking a lot of pictures, when I sat down to go through them, there were just a handful that I felt were worthy of sharing with the world. If you see any images here that aren’t available on Natural Desygns or SM Desygns reach out to me through the Etsy store and I’ll add the image to the correct store. In the meantime, click any of the images to head over to DeviantArt to get a better look.

Hidden Fence

At the edge of the campsite, I discovered its boundary, a wooden fence racing through the bordering forest. Unfortunately, for this stretch, one end of a beam fell from its post and rested against the ground. Each time I pull this image up, the simplicity of the ground fills me to the brim, giving me a moment’s peace.

After arriving at a failed photography class, I was eager to capture a slice of nature’s beauty. A shot conversation later, I ended up at Kingstone Lake. As I strolled along the water, a collection of stones that resembled a cobblestone road plunging into the water’s depths.

Lakeside Stones

The simplest of shifts can create wildly different results. After catching a snapshot of a winding road, I took a few more steps and recorded a bumpy road flanked by a pair of bare trees by the water.

There is something magical about watching ducks swim across a body of water. While anyone can float, it takes a certain amount of effort that ducks don’t have to waste. As they slice across the surface, waves ripple out behind them like an arrow piercing a mound of jello. So, when I found a pair of them swimming at Kingstowne Lake, I added them to my digital library, wishing for a telephoto lens for better shots.
