Beauty Has a Forked Tongue

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
–Robert Brault

This is another one of James’ Phalaenopsis orchids that’s blooming right now. This one was a gift from canine celebrity Hairy Putter‘s dads, on the occasion of their move from Utah to California. They had to leave it behind due to California’s prohibition against bringing plants across the state line. I hope you like the photo.

Coffee and a Peach

Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead
of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative
work instead of business, passion instead
of foolery, finds no home in this trivial
world of ours.

Kodak Retina IIa

For the next week, my daily photo posts will be featuring a series of shots done by painting the subjects with light. I did these using long exposures, a small LED flashlight as the only light source, a tripod, some black plexiglass, a bit of imagination and the fun of trial and error.

Today’s shot features the Kodak Retina IIa. Produced from 1951 – 1954, this one belonged to my great aunt and I am looking forward to taking it out for a street shoot in the next couple of days.
