Lordie it’s been a while, too long of while, since I have put my fingers on the keys. Since I have touched my camera. Since I have let my thoughts flow through word and image. It has been too long. And as a result, perhaps, I am lost in a myriad of thoughts. Ahhh where to begin? Love. Life. Compassion. Unity. Solitude. Peace. Chaos. Tranquility. Change. Constancy. So I begin my blogging anew with just one thought – fortitude. The strength and beauty of just one among many seemingly the same.
I invite you to swing over to my friend Christine’s blog, Quasi Agitato, to read my guest post entitled #Heaven in which I get to chat a bit about my #love of #Instagram and my favorite #s … Be sure to read some of her posts; absolutely brilliant!
By the way – I haven’t posted on here in a while. Sorry! That damn thing called “work” is getting in the way of so much fun stuff! Stay tuned though, I’ve got some edits I’m working on and lots of thoughts I’m ready to share.
Yesterday was a gorgeous day. Paul and I spent the entire day outside, walking the boardwalk (and me hoping for some good people watching!), going to the park, having ice cream, and checking out one of our favorite marinas. Seems the parking lot serves as their dry dock during off season. Odd. Can’t wait for the weather to warm up and get out on the water…
On my way out of the Hotel Rodney in downtown Lewes, Delaware the other day, I walked by these flowers planted along the base of the mirror in the hall. They were so pretty. And I liked the continuous reflection of the flowers in the mirror. Post processing was tough only because there were so many enhancements I liked, finally I decided on this…
I just love this cow – well he’s not a cow he’s a bull. And he lives at a local market. He is sweet and gentle. I think he could use more space to roam but he gets plenty of visitors, giving him lots of head scratching and is well cared for. Each day I drive by this market and a couple of local dairy and livestock farms. I think of this sweet guy and all those gentle creatures. So I have given up on eating beef (or lamb for that matter!). I am not a “vegetarian” but I just can’t get this face out of my head.
On occasion I’m stuck inside: weather, kids, working at home, boredom, comfort, solice, peace, chores … whatever. Just a few shots as of late from times when I’ve been stuck inside.
PS – that bike is waiting to come off the wall until the weather is sure to be nicer more consistently. I am not a cold and/or rainy weather rider!
My mother has become quite the walker. She and that dog walk a lot. They’re a pair those two. They’ve been good for each other. Sophie the shelter dog, needing a home and someone to love her; my Mom, the rescuer, needing someone else to care for… the work.
So each day they walk and walk. And on that journey they pass this tree. Mom mentioned it to me often, asking me to take pictures. I wasn’t too sure what to expect: something pretty? Something gnarly (not really Mom’s style). But knowing she’s got a sense of things, I thought it worth a glance. And to be quite honest – I’d take pictures of a pile of poop if that’s what my Mom wanted. There’s really nothing I would not do for her.
I see a face caught in a moment of expression. What do you see in Mom’s Tree?
Why yes people - am alive and well. More than well but SUPERBLY busy. I have a new job, working as the “Product Evangelist” for a great little company called DecalGirl. Basically I’m doing PR and writing and Twittering and all that good stuff. I have been going full force and putting all my energy into my new role. And I am very happy professionally speaking. With all that in mind – I haven’t had much photog time GASSSSSP! Yes I know. I am sorely disappointed in myself. Perhaps this will tide you over – here is my new logo. My thanks to David Macomber Jr. (a photographer himself) for taking my thoughts and translating them PERFECTLY into this very art nouveau-ish image. Just what this doctor ordered! (I’m not a doctor by the way – close but not close enough! HA!). Peace all. I’ve missed this and hope you have too!
