Sunbeams and Laughter

Orange Flower

Keep your face with sunshine lit,
Laugh a little bit.
All the shadows off will flit,
If you have the grit and wit,
Just to laugh a little bit.

An excerpt from Laugh a Little, by Edmund Vance Cooke

I’ve been working on another recycle/upcycle of an old image for the past few days (which can be found HERE if you’re interested). I decided tonight that it’s finished and ready to go. I love the new colors… they remind me of sunshine.

One of the reasons I love posting my images is so I have a record of how I’ve progressed—as I learn different styles and new techniques. Every now and then I look back at the very beginning and I find all kinds of doozies that I can’t help but DELETE. I wonder what the heck I was thinking when I look at some of my old stuff.

Other times, I look back and I see all kinds of potential. It’s like each photograph I’ve ever taken is it’s own (semi) blank canvas, begging me to come on out and play… to come and make it beautiful.

That’s about all for now.
Peace & Love!
