Weekend link list

Here again, I have gathered a list of links to articles and posts I found interesting this past week plus a couple of things I've been up to. In addition, I've been working on getting the word out about my website Diane Tibbetts Photography where you can view my portfolio and purchase prints.


Cat lovers know cats do this without being provoked. Still not totally sure how I feel about these. I'm thinking the photographer only gets one opportunity to capture these images with each cat, hopefully. 

"...when you improve in one area of your life, you grow in all areas - you are the system."  Just one of the things that will happen when you decide to live your dreams.

Your story is more than your talent. Thank you, Jeremy Cowart!

I try to make a new recipe at least once a week. This past week it was Pot Sticker Stir-Fry from 'Ready or Not' by Nom Nom Paleo. It's good and I'm thinking I need to make it again this week. 

I'm currently reading 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' by Maya Angelou.

I participated in the Black and White Photo Challenge this past week. It was fun and now I need a new challenge. I'll take suggestions. View all seven days on my Facebook page.

Happy Sunday and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Articles and shiny objects

I got all excited about doing a link list post. You know, share some articles, and stuff that I've found on the internet.  Been thinking about doing something like this for awhile and thought I had twenty or so links to share saved in my reading list. Well, I have a gagillion links saved but I'm only feeling these today.

Here you go; a glimpse into a few things I find interesting and a few ‘shiny objects’ that catch my eye...

YES! Says this journal junkie.

Thinking I want to try a black and white one of these. Just wondering how it will work out for me.

OMG!  Loved these back in the day and I've been wanting another pair forever.

Beautiful Fall photos to get us all inspired and out shooting.

Say "Money"

Chase Jarvis with Brene Brown "...divisive times are good breeding grounds for good art..."

And, of course, I can't forget about my website. I am SO excited to have it up and running now.

Hope you have a great day!

It's alive!


 I’m excited to announce my official photography website.

Look what I created! (Sorry, movie quotes pop into my head far too often.)

Making this website has been (and still is) quite an interesting learning curve for me. By interesting, I mean challenging and fun. Yes, fun. That is what this is all about. Right? Right. I still have a LOT to learn here so please bear with me as I make changes, grow my business, and improve my photography.

Just keep learning, just keep learning.

Thrilled, nervous, scared, and antsy, are just some of the feelings I’m having right now and I am just now announcing this on Facebook and Instagram too. I’m going to need more feeling words for all these emotions.

I could keep on waiting until I get it all perfect but, as we all know, nothing is perfect. Except for my Grandchildren, they are perfect. So, yes, it’s time to get my beautifully imperfect images out there and keep moving forward.

Check it out, take a look around and let me know what you think by commenting on the images or clicking on the contact link at the top right of any page. Got questions, or suggestions? You can send me an email.  

Thank you in advance for visiting my site!
