Time is a strange thing...
I realized yesterday that I'm just now half way through the recovery period of my recent foot surgery. In that area, time seems to be moving so slowly, and six more weeks seems like an eternity. But, on the other hand, seventeen years can pass by like the blink of an eye. Our beautiful, brilliant, kind, gracious, and incredibly sweet granddaughter, Hallie, celebrated her 17th birthday yesterday. It's certainly not lost on us that as this year passes and we move on to 2020, we'll see her graduate from high school and move on to college. We're wanting to savor every moment because we realize that a new chapter is just around the corner. So, I just had to take a moment today to share with you how proud Doug and I are of our first grandchild. She has always been a great joy, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for our lovely Hallie! ... See MoreSee Less

On this Small Business Saturday, we would be very appreciative if our followers would do something for us that’s VERY easy! It only takes a few seconds, and would help our small business as we prepare to open our doors very soon!!
Facebook has a new feature to spread the word about our business and it only takes a few seconds to do!
We would love it if you could go to our Facebook business page - Marcy's Photo Journey
Scroll across the top, go to ‘COMMUNITY’
Click 'INVITE FRIENDS'
Wait 10-15 seconds for the invitations to send. It’s as simple as that!
Supporting small businesses doesn’t require spending money. It’s as simple as sharing, liking and promoting us!
Happy Holidays & thank you all for your support!

Well, the secret is out...I love photographing beauty, no matter where or what type it is! For some reason. Doug does not share my enthusiasm for taking pictures of cathedrals and similar architectural images. He usually wanders on while I "do my thing" kind of like I do when he takes close ups of weeds and insects. So between the two of us, we pretty much have it all covered! Anyway, I LOVED St. Mark's basilica in Venice, and I have a ton of photos. The artistry and detail inside and out was captivating. Today's feature is from the exterior and depicts the varied marble columns, ornate design and detail, and beautiful vivid tile mosaic above one of the four main entrance doors. ... See MoreSee Less
What about the uneven floors tiles, warped thru years? The outside plaza has been flooded so many times. I am amazed how it has lasted the intense moist environment. Did I read there has been more recent restoration? Thanks 4 a fun reflection...love Venice. Been there many times..1st time in summer 1967, many stories.
Doug and I are exhausted after two sweltering days at the Townsend Heritage Days event. There were many, many positives to take away from our second show, but the record heat and humidity took a lot out of us! Exhibitors who had done this show in the past told us that the crowd was way down this year, probably due to the extreme heat. Although we didn't quite reach the goal we had set for ourselves, we actually sold quite a bit and made some great contacts as well as gaining some invaluable experience. Two separate surprise visits from friends blessed us tremendously. Gayle Walston Hiddleson and Lea Broussard came all the way from Cleveland to support our efforts, and Barbara Ann Shields and husband Bailey showed up just as we were starting to pack up and helped us do the hard work of getting everything loaded. Both instances made us feel so loved. ... See MoreSee Less
Just a reminder that Marcy's Photo Journey will have a booth at the Townsend Heritage Days Festival next Friday and Saturday, September 27-28. I'm posting some examples of our work, all taken locally, but we'll have additional images including travel, seascapes, lighthouses, and home decor. Special orders are always an option if you don't see exactly what you're looking for.
We'd love to have you stop by and see us as it always helps to see a familiar face come through. The booth will be open from 10:00 until 6:00 on both days, rain or shine.
Thank you for sharing! ... See MoreSee Less
It's been a happy Tuesday so far. I just returned from the post office where I mailed a custom order of two double matted prints. When this customer first contacted me, she had no idea that I can do custom orders, so I thought I'd take a few moments to share some information about that option.
If you go to marcysphotography.com site, you are accessing a third party vendor that uses my raw images to create extra large prints, canvases, metal prints, and various gift items. The site is easy to navigate and you are able to take the image from the gallery and try several mats and/or frames and see exactly how the finished product will look. They provide excellent service, prompt shipping, and a money back guarantee. It's a good company. I know because I ordered some of my own work from them just to be sure of the quality.
However, if you are interested in matted prints that are not huge, we offer five standard sizes out of our home studio. Custom orders are welcome, and I can add text to any image, if that is something that you'd like to consider. Personalized gifts are a nice option to think about as the holidays draw near. The customer whose order I just mailed wanted to choose photos for two of her family members and add their favorite scripture to the image. They turned out great!
Please contact me if you have any questions concerning Marcy's Photo Journey. I'm not the best marketing person and sometimes I'm afraid I don't make things as clear as they need to be. ... See MoreSee Less
