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 […]
Oftentimes I tell the people I meet about my transformation; how much I’ve changed since entering recovery and coming to believe. The way I usually describe it is that all of these changes are internal… they can’t be seen. Well, aside from the fact that you won’t “see” me drinking anymore. Sometimes I refer to […]
Eventually, over time, we all become our own doppelgangers, you know, these completely different people who just happen to look like us. Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother This image & quote seemed so appropriate today. After mentioning how much I’ve changed over the past 2 1/2 years—living sober—I’ve been beating myself up today. […]
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 […]
After working on my last image The View, I got an idea for a new series I want to try. And I’m going to try and stick to my guns this time! I’m going to focus on images that have views or reflections within the photograph, similar to when I set out to do that […]
Sometimes you just have to bite your upper lip and put sunglasses on. Bob Dylan
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!
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different? When I originally posted this image I credited C.S. Lewis for the above quote. Personally, I just LOVE the quote. It’s all over the internet, by the way. Yesterday (March 21st 2017) I stumbled on two old and […]
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 […]
“Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” -Winston Churchill
Yes, my glass is always half full (non-alcoholic beverages, of course). And, as my sponsor says… it is also refillable. 🙂 I’m experimenting with glass over images and this is my first test run. The trees were shot at the old zoo today, and in reading a tutorial last night I was led to Image*After, which […]
IF YOU LOSE YOURSELF in your work, you find who you are. If you express the best you have in you in your work, it is more than just the best you have in you that you are expressing. Frederick Buechner, Whistling in the Dark I thought it was rather coincidental (not) that my quote of […]
As you may be able to tell… today the sky is beautiful!
After thinking about my life this morning, I had a random, but important thought. About fear. You know—I realized that when I procrastinate about moving towards my dreams, I don’t ever really ask myself the question: What if I fail? Pondering Well, maybe—when I have to take a test or something—but I mean when it comes to […]
Laughter sparkles like a splash of water in sunlight.
Oh endless anticipation I dream of what’s to come I miss entire symphonies while beating my own drum The road beyond entices me I’m focused miles ahead Forever running to get there trampling flowers under tread I dreamed the world was perfect Expectations never cease The thing that I am lacking is a sense of inner peace. I […]
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.
