Scrolling Up

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 time on ONE image.  I’m always pointing out what I could have done differently… so from now on I’m doing things slower, and hope to make those changes first– then post. I’m aiming for improvement now, rather than speed. (which is a real feat for this speed demon!) In other news… and speaking of being slow… I’ve been in no rush to update my other blog because I’m really thinking things through. Being young in both recovery and my walk with God, I’m finding more and more that I still have ample work to do. Nourishing my soul and allowing my roots to grow deeper, for starters. My relationship with God MUST come first, before anything. So I’m spending more time with …

Vivid Dreams

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 were photos that I took over the past few days. Both were shot from a distance; the golfer at the edge of the lake, and the background is actually the top of a palm tree that was blowing in the wind yesterday. And midway through writing this post I decided to add one more element to the golfer… A personalized golf ball!

The Lookout

“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!

Outside The Box

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

Living Large

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 freeway underpass. 🙂 Anyway, all is well! We have business to take care of today, but tomorrow we’re hoping to visit a botanical garden nearby. Super excited about that!! That’s about all for now. Happy Monday!! ♥♥♥

My Crazy Space

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!

Knock On Wood

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. I’m already feeling refreshed. Love it! I’m sure tomorrow will be just as good…but to be safe… I’ll KNOCK ON WOOD! (CORNY I know, but I had to say it anyway)
