Yesterday is ashes; tomorrow wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. —Old Eskimo proverb—
Give it all a rest Cast your cares out to the sea Find your inner peace
When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed them. I’ve been watching the show Abstract on Netflix, and just finished the segment on the photographer Platon. All I can say is “WOW.” His work is so incredible. It really reignited my passion for photography. Since I was already in do-over mode, I went back to a street photograph that I posted in 2016. It was the first time, and one of the rare times, that I attempted “candid street photography.” Since the photograph was so unplanned and raw, I wanted to go back to it and focus on the man’s face, add some paint strokes to soften it, and make the portrait seem more up-close & personal. It doesn’t exactly shout Happy Saturday, but “Happy Saturday” nonetheless! Peace & Love— Janet

Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music. Ronald Reagan Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! I took this photograph from the Santa Monica Pier. Sometimes something (or someone) just captures your attention, and this was one of those moments. I saw this musician from the boardwalk and took a long distance shot.

Stepping outside of my comfort zone today, I took a shot at a stranger. I officially tiptoed into the realm of street photography. It was exciting!
