Light Trails

Sometimes you have to close your eyes to see.

A Wise Man

I’m starting to see patterns. I can write for a while, but when things shut down… they REALLY shut down. Images, on the other hand, are all I can think about right now.

Some ornamental cabbage made up the base of my featured image. It’s been blended, twisted and stroked, and… voila! I can only imagine what will happen when I get my hands on an onion. ūüėČ

It’s goodnight for me now. Sweet dreams everyone!

Thursday Tidbit

Unless you learn to face your own shadows, you will continue to see them in others, because the world outside you is only a reflection of the world inside you.

I’m still in the midst of some kind of¬†photo block. Personally, I think it’s just a little burn-out. The story of my life is overdoing things… so it makes sense that maybe it’s just time for a little timeout. I started reading, which is a VERY good thing.

Anyway, this bird was in the backyard this morning, so I just gave him (or her) some color, and a mock reflection- just for the sake of having something to do, and to get in some practice.

Blessings!! Have a beautiful day. ♥♥♥

Awkward Growth

‚ÄúThe tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.‚ÄĚ ¬†-Sandra Kring

I’m not quite sure why I’ve been leaning towards pink and purple lately. I think it’s because I’ve been feeling hurt and angry, and I wanted to calm myself.

I think my images express my thoughts and moods even more than I realized. Maybe backwards though, because they¬†tend to project what I want to feel, rather than what I do¬†feel. I can live with that. ūüėČ

Anyway, I shot this on my last visit to the old zoo. What’s interesting about the¬†tree is¬†that it’s growing somewhat sideways (and no… I didn’t tilt the camera).¬†So…¬†it works as a pretty good featured image for my¬†weekend thoughts… about¬†Growth.

I’ve already mentioned that I had some¬†weird experiences last¬†week. What’s funny is that I really was sent into a mini tail-spin for a day (or two)… BUT, I’m kind of excited now because I discovered¬†that¬†it was really¬†just an opportunity for growth.

Pushing through the awkwardness, you could say.

I’ll do some follow-up posts this week, about some of the things I’m learning, and hearing- which means YES, I’ve been listening.

Blessings!!

 

Morning Glory Surprise

in-the-garden-2
This¬†colorful flowering vine belongs to our¬†neighbor, yet it sneaks into our¬†yard, back behind a shed where no one dares to go. I had to crawl through a creepy web to get a good view, but it was worth it—and I was looking for adventure. Too much coffee perhaps. Anyway,¬†I spruced it up and darkened the background to show off the colors—and then I did a Black & White for Rebecca.
