Abstract Nature: Moss, Cypress and Sky

“It is another nature which speaks to the camera rather than to the eye.”
    — Walter Benjamin, Little History of Photography (1929)

Having a bit of fun going overboard with the various editing tools in OnOne Software’s new Perfect Photo Suite 8, again… Usually after a few days, I’ll get this sort of thing out of my system.

Camera Curious Cleo

Cleo was 10 years-old when she arrived at the shelter 2 years ago. She lived there for a little more than 3 months before being rescued. A complete sweetheart, one can only presume she got overlooked because of her age, for it certainly couldn’t be an issue of personality. She is friendly, curious, affectionate and quick to try to give humans a bath with her sandpaper tongue. I don’t know if she thinks we’re all dirty or if she just likes the way we taste. Her beautiful tortoise-shell coloring combines with a very distinctive voice and an insatiably curious disposition. She seems to enjoy having a forever home now. Her housekeeper and kitchen staff certainly loves her.

Butterfly Sunshine – Revisited and Reworked

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may recall a post from July called Butterfly Sunshine (you can see it here). It’s a photo I already liked, but felt I could take in a somewhat different direction and still have an appealing image. So here it is, revisited and reworked. Which version do you prefer? Please leave your comments below.

Getting My Ducks in a Row

Christmas is just 2 weeks away, and  I’ve felt guilty because I haven’t started  and don’t want to start shopping.  Although I’m getting nowhere fast on that front, I did finally get some paperwork taken care of that had stacked up on my desk. I hung the “Bah humbug!” sign my dear sister gave me on the front door, simultaneously beginning and completing my holiday decorating chores. I fertilized the orchids this morning;  their appearance reminded me yesterday that I’ve neglected to do it since James passed away in September. I started feeding his beloved “Forest Kitties” – a feral cat colony residing a mile or so from the house that he ensured had clean food and water daily over those too-few months the cancer was in remission; and portrait bookings have picked up, at least for the time being. And I’m trying to get out more to take pictures for fun – for myself; something I had neglected in lieu of the need to regroup and reorganize in solitude, prayer and contemplation. That need is still very much present, but I’m attempting to interject a bit of balance from external influences, at times with great difficulty. I need more balance to get through Christmas and New Year’s. I need it to get through today.

Martha

It was a nice morning in north Georgia. Martha sat on her front porch with a fresh cup of coffee. She talked about the home across the road that had recently and somewhat suspiciously burned down. The sunlight was illuminating her face quite nicely… >>Click<<
