Enigmatic Path, Shadows and light intertwine, Past and present merge. —JanetHaiku #5 Which Way Photo Challenge: January 31 I found several old road trip photographs while (still) sifting through my archives. I believe this one was taken in Utah. My boyfriend (at the time) wasn’t one to make pit stops, so my head was hanging […]
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Related to Music I thought it would be fun to take part in another photo challenge, and ‘anything related to music’ sounded like a great theme for an old Memphis road trip photo. I’ll get back to writing soon. I needed a little breather! Peace & Love…—Janet
In contrast to the black and white image of Cadillac Ranch that I did awhile back, I wanted to do something with color, but something unique. It reminds me of the moon for some reason. Cars on the moon… wouldn’t that be weird!
Don’t define your world in black and white, because there is so much hiding among the grays.
Creativity is making marvelous out of the discarded.
There are happy blues, sad blues, lonesome blues, red-hot blues, mad blues, and loving blues. Blues is a testimony to the fullness of life. Corey Harris
I thought I would re-do an image I posted many moons ago. This is also from the 2011 road trip, and was taken in Surfside Beach, Texas. We saw many awesome sunsets in this place! The last time I showed this I used the deep, vibrant colors that I so frequently use, so I wanted […]
A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. -John Barrymore I found this quote not long after I wrote my bit about TIME. It sure makes sense! It doesn’t exactly fit with the featured image here, but considering I’m still dreaming of cooler places, the dream theme kind of works for now. […]
I haven’t given up on my new series, but I really wanted to do something today to chill out. I finished the second of my three weekly graphic design quizzes, and those tests really stress me out! This is Bricktown, Oklahoma City again. A little darker and more dramatic than the last photograph I shared […]
If your train of thought is going nowhere, switch tracks. This is the next image in my series featuring dual effects with windows, doors, reflections or views. I’m happy with how this turned out. I shot the image some years ago while on the Georgetown Loop Railroad, one of Colorado’s first visitor attractions. I like […]
In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you. -Leo Tolstoy
Don’t trade in your authenticity for approval. The photography book that I’ve been browsing through is really inspiring me. I’ve said before that I prefer black and whites, and that was actually the only thing I would hang on the walls of my old place, but I rarely finish and/or post one here. So… I […]
Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Helen Keller This is actually a shop in Jerome, Arizona—an old 1800’s mining town that I visited. It was a wild place back in the day, but it’s now a tourist attraction; full of coffee shops, restaurants, and cool art galleries. This particular building was used as a brothel […]
Life is like a road trip. We may appreciate the smooth stretches, but the bumps in the road are what truly make the journey memorable.
I have a plethora of things to write about lately. My mind has been spinning in all kinds of wonderful directions! But, I’m not going to write today. This image was taken when I was on my way to Denver (I was the passenger, so no danger there). I didn’t notice the sign until I got home. […]
It was about 3 am the other night when I shut down my computer. I could have stayed up later if my tired, crazy bloodshot eyes hadn’t caused my blurred vision. That evening, I had spent the hours tinkering with photos, browsing blogs, and perusing some tips and tricks offered by talented photographers out there. […]
I took this photograph on the way to Tennessee; at Cadillac Ranch. I found the place on google when I was searching for things to do on the long ride across the country. It’s worth seeing—if you happen to be passing through Texas and haven’t been there before. What’s funny is that I really wanted to […]
