Empty Promises

I’ve been thinking (for a while now) about doing recovery images; pictures that portray the feelings of freedom and joy that come with getting—and living—sober. I think my mind was in too many different places, or I didn’t plan it out well, because this one could actually go either way. Is she trying to climb […]

Let’s Dance!

Today is my first day off and I’m still trying to get into the groove of the changes. All of my classes over the summer were online, so my face-to-face socializing was minimal. Now I’m surrounded by young people in their late teens and early 20’s, and every class has group activities. Talk about culture […]

Pieces of Peace

Well, like it or not this was a blast to create. My summer school final is next week, and then I’ll be out taking more photographs. In the meantime, I wanted to add something to my series- even though I don’t have any good reflections, doorways or windows. So… I improvised. Anyway, as the title […]

Dream BIG

First of all… I will start by sharing the humorous part of my experimentation today. I showed my mom this piece that I created and she asked me “What’s that supposed to represent?” Ha! “Well… ummm… it represents what I learned how to do today on Illustrator! Too funny. I am over the top excited about […]

Painting the Sky

The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night. Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance I’ve been dog sitting since Friday and hope to share some interesting images later in the week. I brought my camera… but forgot the USB cable! That’s OK. It forced me to […]

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 […]

Have a Heart

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 […]
