SALES CELEBRATION, DAY THREE! This lovely springtime image of the Cades Cove Methodist Church sold this last week-end as a special order. The customer wanted "It is well with my soul..." added to the image, and I think it turned out beautifully. Taken in the height of dogwood season, this is actually our second sale for this particular image and is a good example of how the special order process personalizes one of our photos to perfectly suit the needs of the customer. ...

For all of you who voted for "Blackberry Bear" in the Tennessee Wildlife Federation's annual photography contest, I was just notified today that I did receive an honorable mention for this year's wildlife calendar. Although I was disappointed at first, when I checked last year's numbers, it looks like Blackberry was actually one of 30 or so that was chosen out of a total of over 3400 entries. They chose 12 winners for the calendar, one for each month of the year and one for the cover, and 18 honorable mentions in addition to one people's choice winner. This was the third year I entered, and the first time any of my photos was recognized. I'll take it! 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Suddenly our life has moved to the fast lane, and there's just not enough time in the day to get everything done! Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. But there are moments when that overwhelmed feeling creeps in, and the stress levels rise. Those are the times that I go to my favorite passage of scripture...the one that is on all of our printed material and signs. I rely on this promise of new mercies as my tired body gets up each morning with excitement and anticipation of a brand new day. Thank God for his everlasting word and his abundant blessings! ...

Okay, Photo Journey People, we could use your help! It's time to begin choosing the images that will be on display when we open our second location in west Knoxville in the next two weeks. We really would appreciate some feedback from you. What are some of your favorite images that you think would be best to create a good first impression for those first customers that walk through the door? You've seen a lot of our work and are bound to have some favorites...at least we're hoping you do! Travel? Smoky Mountains? Wildlife? Scenic landscapes? Barns? Flowers? Birds? Waiting to hear from many of you as we make our final selections. ... See MoreSee Less
My favorite is the Smokey Mountain... Birds.... really any of them are fantastic! You will do great! Thanks

My favorite shot from yesterday's Bald River Falls excursion. The falls were the prettiest I've ever seen them and so much bigger than the last time I was there.

If you're a snow and winter fan, you're going to love "Sleepy Colorado Saturday Morning!" Just ordered in a large (34 X 50) canvas, this image was taken last January in Leadville, Colorado and is the most viewed photograph on my website, with almost 1000 views. It's going to look great in one of Doug's custom frames and is ideal for above a fireplace or sofa. Available in one of our Photo Journey locations soon, but if you aren't local and would like this one sent to your home, we're happy to do that as well. ... See MoreSee Less

We want to be sure we have plenty of artwork to appeal to both men and ladies as we enter the holiday gift season! I'm thinking this one might be a wonderful choice for those dads and husbands on your list this year. Wouldn't it be great to wrap up something unique and totally unexpected for one of the men in your life? It's going to look great in a rustic cedar frame, handcrafted by Doug! ... See MoreSee Less

Took a day away from the computer yesterday, and it was so great to be able to feel and see the first signs of fall. Found myself at Roaring Forks Motor Nature Trail by sunrise, which was lovely. It was fun to explore the trail a little more fully than I had in the past and take time to stop and get some shots along the way. From there I headed to Cades Cove, which was incredibly crowded, so I didn't stay very long. It was surprising to me to see how many touches of color there were in the Cove already. In my totally unprofessional opinion, I'm thinking we may be in for an earlier than usual fall season! ... See MoreSee Less

Response to the photos featured for our note card collections has been wonderful, but what if YOU DON'T NEED OR USE NOTE CARDS? Keep in mind that any of our photos posted on this site can be purchased as a fine art print or canvas.

There is no extra charge for special orders and WE SHIP! Contact Marcy's Photo Journey today to get the process started. ... See MoreSee Less
Roads well travelled. Beautiful
I love a good foggy morning! Today's feature photo of the Tipton Place in Cades Cove, taken a while back, is a great example of the coziness of such a day. I must admit there's a twinge of sadness when I look at this one because that nice little crooked fence no longer exists. Over the summer, it fell down and has been removed. The fence was one of my favorite things about the Tipton Place, and it's a shame that it's gone. Change can come hard sometimes, but it's a necessary part of our lives. We sure have seen enough of change over the recent months, haven't we? I find myself really looking forward to the last quarter of 2020 with great anticipation. Hope you're already well into a good week, and that each day is better than the last! Happy Tuesday. ... See MoreSee Less
It's definitely a relief to be able to say that the note cards are now done! The project kept growing as we went along, and we ended up with seven different collections, all represented by today's photos. Response has been great, and we're mailing out our second out of state box today to South Carolina. We'd love to send some your way! Each box sells for $27.50 and includes 20 cards and envelopes, with an additional $5.00 for mailing. Click on each picture to see the collection it represents. If you order more than one box, you will receive a 10% reduction of your total and an extra card in each box. ... See MoreSee Less

Just made the final cut this morning on our "Morning Mercies" collection of note cards. It was hard to choose only 20, but here are just a few of the images that will soon be printed, cut, boxed, labeled, and on their way to Grit & Grace on Saturday! There is a nice variety, something for everyone, but I hope that as you look at these, you'll be reminded of Marcy Photo Journey's favorite verse of scripture in Lamentations 3: 23. "His mercies are new every morning.!" The sunrise hour is always the most special hour of the day for me...rain or shine, cold or warm... because it rarely goes by without the thought of the mercies and faithfulness of God in my life. Response has been great so far to this collection. They come in boxes of 20 cards/envelopes and sell for $27.50. If you purchase more than one box, a 10% discount is applied to your total at check out. As always, we're happy to mail these for an additional $5.00. ... See MoreSee Less
Theses are beautiful!!!!
Just mailed out our first box of "Beautiful Churches Around the World" to a high school friend in Michigan! The collection has now grown to churches from 14 countries: France, Italy, England, Switzerland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Canada, South Africa, and the United States. Maybe it's because each one brings back such great memories, but this is definitely my favorite collection. Coming to Grit & Grace on Saturday, a box of 20 note cards with envelopes is $27.50. Mailing is an additional $5.00. ... See MoreSee Less
Just when I think I have a favorite line of note cards, we roll out the next series and I change my mind. Today is for all of you songbird lovers! There are forty birds just waiting to be loaded in boxes. A customer asked yesterday if the boxes of cards could be personalized because she wanted only owls and foxes in her box of wildlife cards. So the answer is YES! Feel free to choose your favorite birds or animals or sunrises or churches, and we'll make up a box just for you. Boxes contain 20 cards and envelopes and sell for $27.50 per box, with an additional $5.00 for mailing. To order, please leave a comment below or message me. We're mailing out our first order on Monday! ... See MoreSee Less
I have a lot of perfectionist tendencies which at times can be burdensome. Then there are other times when it can be a very good thing. I just finished boxing up our first round of note cards, and it made me so happy to see that in this case, my perfectionism was an asset. I LOVE THEM! Yesterday I was so tired of this project after countless hours over the last two weeks, and I wondered why in the world I even considered making handcrafted note cards. And when we say handcrafted, we mean handcrafted...from taking the initial picture to tying the final ribbon on the box, every step is done by hand. We don't just submit our files to a printer and have them printed. We process, print, cut, sort, box, label, and package! Believe me, If pictures of wildlife can look elegant, these do! 🙂 I told Doug that if they don't sell, we'll have enough note cards to last us the rest of our lives, and then our kids and grand kids will have enough for their lifetime as well! So the wildlife series is finished and ready to sell. We'd love to mail you a box or two. Twenty cards and envelopes to a box for $27.50. Please either comment or message me about discounts for multiple boxes, payment, and shipping details. This is a gift that any wildlife lover will be thrilled to receive. ... See MoreSee Less

Cades Cove is a bit overgrown now, and I don't stray far from the road or well worn paths because I'm afraid I might run into a snake. The fall mowing season and prescribed burns will start soon, and the yearly growth cycle begins again. Late summer does have it's own kind of beauty, though. I really love the purple ironweed that stands tall above everything else this time of year, and it's just one more sign that Fall is just around the corner!

Just in time for gift season! Marcy's Photo Journey is happy to announce our five collections of boxed note cards that are now ready to order! We'll be featuring one each day over the next few days, so that you'll be able to have a good feel for what they're like. Inspired by a favorite scripture (Lamentations 3:21-23), our signature series is entitled "New Mornings, New Merices," featuring early morning photos of some of our favorite places. The cards are printed on fine art linen paper and present beautifully. Each box contains 20 cards and envelopes and sells for $27.50. If you want more than one box, the price drops to $25.00. We're happy to mail them to you (or someone on your gift list) for postage cost, which varies according to location. If you were happy with the quality of our calendars, you're going to love the note cards! If interested, please message me to order. ... See MoreSee Less

As I've worked on our boxed note cards over the last few days, I've noticed that bluebirds seem to be the bird I most love to photograph. It's difficult to choose precisely which birds to be included in the set of cards because I love them all!

Earlier in the week I was reminded of this verse from Psalms that I hadn't thought about in a long time. It brings wonderful comfort to me in this time of frequently feeling overwhelmed with everything that's going on around us. The photograph was taken a couple years ago when I took a long day, daylight to dusk, and went to the Smokies by myself. It was late November, and most of my day was spent along the Middle Prong of the Little River in the Tremont area of the park. I remember climbing up and down banks with my tripod with some difficulty after my recent hip surgery and thinking that Doug would not be happy if he could see what I was doing! ... See MoreSee Less

As I sit here in my living room full of canvases waiting to be taken to Grit & Grace (12 that I can see from my chair and a few additional ones in the kitchen, not in my line of sight right now), I'm wondering if we may have gotten carried away a bit with our enthusiasm for the new season! Doug framed eleven yesterday, and that was after doing a full day's work at his "day job!" Once we get these in the gallery and clean up our house, I told Doug we're due for a nice rest. Today's feature is a classic fall photo of the Cades Cove Methodist Church as viewed from Rich Mountain Road, and it's headed to Grit & Grace in a few hours. I love this one so much that I plan to order another one to hang above my fireplace! It looks perfect in Doug's handmade white frame. ... See MoreSee Less
Taken in western North Carolina at the peak of fall colors, today's feature is one of eleven canvases that we're taking to the gallery in Grit & Grace Market tomorrow.

Found this sweet little bluebird as I was going through some old pictures yesterday and was reminded of a couple of passages in the Bible that mention birds. I especially love Matthew 6:26: "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?" Immediately after that, Psalm 104:33 popped into my thoughts: "I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live." Hoping all of you have a song on your heart today. But just in case you don't, you may want to watch and listen to one of my favorites www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqRME_Ho6rI. I guarantee it will lift your spirits. It seems like FOREVER since our choir sang "The Goodness of God" in a Sunday morning church service, but His goodness is still running after us. Praise God! ... See MoreSee Less
Love that song!! Started my day off right hearing your choir's voices singing this so beautifully!!
Finally breathing just a little easier about my latest project. When I announced that I was going to do a 2021 calendar, I was a little naive about just what the project entailed. I only knew that I wanted a first class product in a good size and based my pricing on what other similar ones were selling for online. However, I was painfully aware that $25.00 for a calendar is a lot of money and didn't want anyone to feel that they were not worth the money. As I started researching printing options, many companies were investigated before finally discovering only one that offered the large 12 X 18 size I wanted. Of course, they were going to cost me a little more than I had hoped, but I didn't want to cut any corners and produce something that I couldn't be proud of. And then there was the task of selecting the pictures for each month! Variety was important...some landscape, some close ups, some a little on the artsy side...something for everyone! I pondered over each month, but finally made the hard decisions. Once it was on order, the real worrying began. What if it didn't live up to everyone's expectations? Here I had 75 orders, and may very well have many unhappy customers. Well, they just arrived, and I am so thrilled with the result! Good quality paper, beautiful color, and perfect size for a nice wall calendar. As soon as I receive payment through PayPal or check, I'll get them in the mail. It's $25.00 plus $5.00 postage, if you want it mailed. Otherwise, just contact me to make arrangements for pick up. On Wednesday, we will be putting about 25 calendars in our gallery at Grit & Grace, where they will sell for $27.50. Now I wish I had ordered more... ... See MoreSee Less

Just ordered the long awaited calendars! This project was a lot of fun, but more work than I had anticipated. All you get to see is the cover, but I think you'll like it.

Although I did order a few extra ones, I won't be doing another order until this time next year. If you'd like one, let me know, and I'll add your name to the list. They should be here within a week and will also be available in our gallery at Grit & Grace Market! ... See MoreSee Less

We arrived in Chincoteague Island, Viriginia on Sunday after a long 650 mile drive on one of the hottest days of the year, checked in to our hotel, hopped back in the car to explore the island a bit before dark, and finally came to our room around dusk. As we went out on the balcony to check out the view, this is what we saw. Too tired to set up tripods, dig out equipment, and get a first class photo, we opted instead to grab a camera and take a few shots, all the while figuring that this sunset was typical of what we would be treated every night this week. We were so wrong! Four nights later, and we still haven't had anything close to this one... ... See MoreSee Less

I guess because I love horses so much, I thought that the wild horse images would be good sellers, but I was totally wrong as we still haven't sold our first image taken that day. But they are incredibly fun to photograph... ... See MoreSee Less

So much suffering. Disturbing news on every hand. Stressed and troubled. We not only need to pray, but also TRUST. Thank goodness, we know that God is our hope and our strength. So comforted that His mercies are still new every morning! ... See MoreSee Less
Beautiful words and beautiful photo.

When I'm at a loss for a photo of the day, sometimes I just go back to this day a few years back in my picture library and choose an image from that day.

We climbed over the horse gate on Sparks Lane and walked back to the large tree in this picture, spread our blanket, and had a memorable picnic together. As I look back just four years ago, it seems that life was so much more carefree and happy then. I find myself yearning for such days... ... See MoreSee Less
Great blue herons are fun to watch and fun to photograph. Sometimes they almost look like water ballerinas, and I've laughed out loud more than once when I've spent time in their presence, so I hope at least one of these makes you smile! Happy Tuesday. ... See MoreSee Less
