Marcy's Photo Journey

Things are starting to happen here at Marcy’s Photo Journey as we head to the UPS office today to ship a matted 16x20 image and continue to build our inventory. Pictured below, our model Madelyn has one of our “mini-landscapes”. This format features panoramic images in a finished size of 11x14 inches. We have one like this hanging as an accent piece in our own home.
The mini-landscapes are all double matted, finished with a decorative V-groove, and packaged in clear show-bags. This particular image is on canvas paper and has a blue outer mat and a gray inner mat. You can have “It is Well With My Soul” or any of our other mini-landscapes for $32.00. We will be creating galleries of images available in each size. Many are ready to go, already printed and matted, but if you place an order you have a customization option. This means you can choose your paper (canvas, luster, pearl or metallic). In addition, you may add a custom scripture or favorite saying as seen in the example for an additional $5.00.

Our model Madelyn is holding the 8x10 version (finished size) of a fan favorite entitled “Frosty Bugle Breath,” taken in the National Park at Oconaluftee, North Carolina. Our Frosty won third place in a wildlife contest featuring 597 images, so we're quite proud of him! The golden early light and the steam that rose from the bugling elk gave us an image that we felt fortunate to capture.

We have a variety of images in 8x10 format of various subjects but focused mainly on wildlife of the Smokies...bears, songbirds, coyotes, elk, deer, owls, eagles, raccoons, etc. They are all double matted, finished with a decorative V-groove, and sealed in clear show-bags. This particular image is on metallic paper and has a cappuccino color outer mat and a heritage tan inner mat.

You can have Frosty Bugle Breath for $18.00 If you would like more information on other sizes and subjects please message us.

Since there has been so little activity on our page lately, you may have thought we lost interest in our little photography business, but that is far from the case.

As you may know, Marcy and I have over 1,800 images hosted online with a site called Fine Art America. We upload the images and provide descriptions, then Fine Art America does everything else from shopping cart checkout to printing matting, framing and shipping. We receive a commission for use of the image.

Fine Art America does have great products with a money-back guarantee and we recommend that you take a look and compare them to what you would have to pay for a framed image.

But for most of us, it is no small investment to get a matted and framed print. So last month we began researching how we might bring you a high-quality product for less. For sales, we decided to target art fairs and festivals where people could see our product directly. We realize selling art online is difficult, especially considering shipping.

After much research and testing, we have settled on offering six image sizes, with beautiful v-grooved, double mats with using metallic, canvas, luster and other quality papers paired to match the type of image. We will not do framing, but all of our images fit standard size frames.

Over the course of the last month, we have produced over 100 images like the 18x24 you see below featuring our model, Madelyn.

We have created these finished sizes:
• 8x10 (A good place to feature our birds and wildlife)
• 10x13 (Wildlife closeups)
• 11x14 (mini-landscapes in metallic and art canvas )
• 16x20 (Featured landscape prints)
• 18x24 (Large landscape prints)

Contact us for more information and continue to follow us for offers, featured images, news and descriptions.

From Doug -
I wish to declare another of Marcy's superpowers! - She has a real eye for color and decorating. Our host site makes it easy to see how an image looks with mat and frame choices and I just spent some time practicing. There are tens of thousands of combinations to mat and frame a print, including choice of paper finishes and sheens. I realized that I am way out of my league; I can't get the combinations right. If you feel the same, don't hesitate to contact Marcy through this page for consultation. She would be glad to help!

I've always loved this church, St. Mark's Anglican, located in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, and I've taken many, many pictures of it over the years. As a featured Thanksgiving 2018 image, I've chosen to pair it with Psalms 100:4, a familiar verse of scripture that reminds us to give thanks and praise to God for his blessings in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving!

Heads up for those who may be interested. OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS WE WILL BE OFFERING SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISCOUNTS ON ALL OF OUR PHOTO PRODUCTS. Some things will be discounted at 50%, and include many gift options that are offered at all price levels from stocking stuffers to quality art work for your home. Please check our Facebook business page regularly in order to take advantage of these opportunities. Also free shipping will be available at certain times between now and Christmas.

After being on the road from 6:00 am until 9:45 pm yesterday, we were tired this morning and had no plans whatsoever to get out and shoot today. But then Doug happened to look outside and report that there was heavy fog and frost, a good combination for some pics of the last few days of Autumn color. All of these were taken within 3-4 miles of our house as the fog burned off, and the light was just about perfect! ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful shots! The Mallard was my favorite "catch"!

These were all beautiful

You are talented and using that talent to bless me with every picture. Thank you

Wow! You capture beautiful seconds and make them last forever. Thank you for doing that for us. That is the very thing I always wish for when something beautiful captures my attention.

You are so talented. These are amazing.

Beautiful

Love these!

Doug and I are in Florida this week while he attends a conference for work. I've been spending quite a bit of time out exploring and have twice visited the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Here in Florida, the birds are big and white! I've discovered that it's not that easy to photograph a pure white bird in the midday sun, but I've enjoyed watching them. What a change to go from Tennessee fall to such a completely different setting...Doug and I are in Florida this week while he attends a conference for work.

We had hopes of getting nice fall sunrise images for our photo sales galleries so we braved the high winds and downed branches on US 441 to the overlook past Newfound Gap. -- And they did close the road soon after we can through. Out of the 250 or so shots we have between us, there is probably nothing that might showcase well. With a storm front approaching from the west we did have a spectacular view in person. Stay tuned, hope springs eternal ... ... See MoreSee Less

For the past 10 years or so, we have enjoyed a fall weekend trip to the Smokies. We delayed our trip this year by a week hoping we might have better color and we were rewarded. Nevertheless, we had to reckon with high-wind road closures and rain. That was all good, the rain made for some interesting scenes, and we will be posting images here soon. The ones below were taken in the Cataloochee Valley. ... See MoreSee Less

Psalm 50:2 "Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined."

We are still combing through our archives to choose the best pictures for our galleries. I noticed that the batch this evening showed a count of over 77,000 shots and there are several other batches. We have long said that someday we would figure how to showcase our photography, and that time has arrived. The image below may not be the best technically by any stretch, but it is one of my all-time favorites. The beauty of Zion National Park during the Monsoon Season was incredible, and the colors were just this vivid. The Lord was very near to us that day. -- Posted by Doug

Years ago when we first visited Zion National Park there were flash-flood warnings out. That was a little scary since we were unfamiliar w/the area.

The Heavens and Earth testify of His glory. Absolutely gorgeous

Progress report...
We've now been online for one week and many have asked how it's going so far. We are still very busy adding images every day, and the days are flying by. I was able to get out and shoot two days this past week...MY FAVORITE DAYS! Subtle touches of Fall are starting show up, and I want to savor every day and minute of my favorite season. We only ended up with 106 page likes for the week, a long way from the 2,000 we need to boost us to the next level. Not as many visitors to the site as we had hoped, either, but we will not be discouraged! Going to keep pressing forward and give it some time. Thanks to everyone who has liked or followed the page. Really hoping to double the number of likes (at least) during this upcoming week.

Marcy's Photo Journey

Today was a shooting day. Sometimes I know exactly where I'm headed. Other times I just set out, take it as it comes, and don't know where I'll go. Today was the latter. Started out to get some shots of the elk on the other side of the park. After that I thought I'd look for Fall and go to the higher elevations, always the first places to have signs of color. From Cherokee, I got on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but after several miles I was tempted by a little gravel road that promised to take me to Big Witch Gap. Very rough, very steep, very curvy...started wondering if I was actually lost and might end up on the news tonight as missing. Just as I was becoming a little frantic and thinking Doug was not going to be happy if he had to send out a search party, I came to "Mile High Campground." The sign said I was at an elevation of almost 6,000 feet. Never did see Big Witch Gap, but I was able to find my way back after asking one of the campers for directions. I rate this as a good day even though I didn't get any great pictures and I didn't find any color. It was an adventure, for sure. The first shot was taken just after Newfound Gap in North Carolina. The second is at Mile High Campground, which I later found out was close to Maggie Valley.
