I’ve had an unusually hard time finding interesting things to photograph, so I’m sticking with my plan to try new and different ways to edit and display them. In case it’s not clear, this is a tree framed on a scroll. (it’s hard to know how it’ll look on various devices!) I’m also going to spend more… Read More
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. Henry David Thoreau I suppose this image and quote could be misleading. I’m not a golfer, nor do I dream of ever being one! These… Read More
“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” Abraham Lincoln This is one of the clearest shots I’ve ever gotten of a bird that’s in the distance. Now if only he hadn’t hid behind that branch!
This little bird was adorable! I can’t get a decent, solid shot of those tiny ones from where I’m situated… so I did some color work and decided to frame it with cardboard. Just something different. To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. Joseph Chilton Pearce
Surround yourself with people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart, and nourish your soul.
DOES THIS BRANCH MAKE ME LOOK BIG??? So far this is the biggest to come around. It really IS a leafless, leaning and tired looking tree, so it was amusing to see this big bird hanging out near the top of it. According to google this is a band tailed pigeon. It’s much prettier than the pigeon’s I’ve seen in the… Read More
Kind of weird and random… I took some photos of light reflecting off of a golf course lake. How I ended up with this I’ll never know! Just thought it was kind of cool. Peace & Love!
What a beautiful day it’s been! This (dead looking) tree is directly in front of my sister’s balcony and seems to attract all kinds of birds. I photographed about seven or eight different types as they came by to visit. Just thought I would start with this one. What a great feeling to spend time somewhere new.… Read More
It is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy! I think I’ve finally hit the last of the archived images I had saved. I’m sure glad I’m leaving tomorrow! Perfect timing. I may drive my sister crazy with the camera, but lucky for me she’s a very patient soul.… Read More
This morning I heard rustling and chirping in the garden and saw a little white bird hopping from flower to flower. I must have a thing for wings because as soon I saw the wing on this shot I knew that I had to make it work. The bird was very tiny and I was… Read More
Separating topics is not easy. Not on the blog, anyway. I did some tinkering and there is no logical way to do it. I think that going to regular A.A. meetings (and looking to be of service) was the real STEP that I needed to take, and I’m doing that. At least I’m gaining clarity! Anyway, it’s… Read More
Sometimes I look in the mirror and say… “where did my personality go?!?” Well… maybe I don’t look in the mirror and say it, but I DO wonder what’s up with me lately. And I don’t mean it in a horrible, sad, woe is me way either. It’s just that I get to the point (now and… Read More
“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings. Ann Landers
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?
Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain. Lily Tomlin
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it’s turn. Hal Borland A dear friend of mine gave us this tree when my dad passed away, and we planted it in a memorial garden in the backyard. Needless to say, watching all of these little heart shaped leaves spring forth every year is extra special. Have… Read More
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Teresa The weight and power of words has been a constant theme with me lately. Just a few words can have a HUGE impact. They can build up, or they can tear down. And the positive or negative energy they emit can… Read More
