I Am Having Issues ...

Hello my dear friends,

it seems that I am having issues ... to be exact photography issues.
(Oh, I hate stupid little things like this that bother me so much!)

I have been busy and have new creations to share but for whatever reason, I am not able to take any photos that I am happy with to share with all of you. I must have taken maybe 200/300 photos these last 4 days and deleted them all again. Either it was too bright or too dark or I just couldn't get a clear and sharp enough picture or I just didn't like the look of them. Maybe I am just being way too picky, I don't really know. One thing I know, is that I am a little frustrated.

The crazy thing is, that if I take photographs from far away and outside they turn out amazing!
See the little chipmunk on our deck ... I took this picture from over 30 feet away and it turned out very nicely, so why can't I take a decent photo of something I have made?!

Talking about the little critter on my deck ... this little chipmunk had decided to become a "house guest" for a several days. It had somehow gotten into into our basement and made it it's home. I haven now caught the little critter and I am happy to tell you that I have successfully re-homed the it to the park down the road, near a creek that flows there first thing this morning. Now that is something to be quite happy about!

As they say, tomorrow is another day and hopefully I will have a post with some of my newest creations to share with all of you, so if you have a few spare moments, why not stop by and see what I have been up too.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today, here at Todolwen. It is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind. 

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I can identify with photo frustrations. I was trying to take pictures of my latest project today and no matter what I did the edges look wonky in all the photos - I know they're straight but I can't get the camera to believe it. Finally gave up and went with what I had.

  2. A little of your heart is in every project and to capture that on photos is so challenging but you do a very good job of it. I always love to see what you've created next! Hopefully the next try goes better.

  3. I can relate to your photo frustrations. I packed my good camera away by mistake so all my pics now on the new house changes are from my cell. Your little house guest is cute but I am sure he loves his new digs near the water and park. Have a great summer day.

  4. Maybe you should put your creation out on the deck where the chipmunk was. Just a thought ... LOL

  5. I understand you challenges. Seems I have been running into that a lot lately. I just joke and blame it on solar flares since it is stupid hot right now! I'm sure you will figure it out. Your pictures are always wonderful.
    Your little fur friend is too cute. I hipe he is enjoying his new living space!
