Photography by Tonia Winer

My passion in photography is expressed in many ways. The most important thing to me is that I take pictures because I love to, not because I have to. They may not be perfect, but they are mine.

I’ve just completed my first macrame purse!  I’ve made macrame jewelry before, however, after a while, for as many beautiful pieces that can be made, it bored me.  So, now I’m going to try to focus on making purses.  This one is a small sample, and honestly could have been a little longer in comparison to the size of the handle.
To make the purse I used 5” bamboo D handles
6MM Braided Elegance Macrame Cord
Knots: larks knots to connect the cord to the handles and then square knots

My Doctor Who tumbler.  I recreated this using a tumbler I purchased from Teavana.com.  I unscrewed the bottom, took out the paper design, and inserted my own.  I’m really tempted to on purchasing more tumbler to have a complete set of all my favorite pictures!

During our camping trip we saw a lot of inch worms.  We saw all sizes, and they were very insistent on joining of family vacation.  The were all over our table, in our tent, and even made it into our car for the ride home.

My son found this caterpillar on the top of Coble Mountain.  Unfortunately, we still don’t know what type it is.

Once you leave the rooftop garden there is a bridge that crosses to the other side of the building, and this is one of the views.

The design for the building was very interesting.  Though, I do wonder how they get those windows clean.
