Renaissance Revisited

Light is so very important and the lighting I love is that of Renaissance paintings.  Yesterday, I had the time to explore that form of lighting again.  Oh, it was like going home.

White Ornamental Cabbage?

Have never seen a white ornamental cabbage before.  While we were out looking for the "perfect" orchid, we found this one in front of a local flower shop.  This is an iphone shot that was saved on my external hard drive and worked on a little bit in Photoshop.  Modern technology continues to amaze me.


Learned yesterday that Google is doing away with our blog followers feature.   If this is true, this is so sad.  I am going save some of your blog sites in my Favorites so I can visit them every now and then.   Is time for me to clean out my Favorites, now I have a reason!  Hope Google doesn't eliminate blogspot.  Please come back and visit here from time to time.  As long as Google allows, the door will be open and the coffee pot is always on.

Hope y'all have a great day!

Shades of White

Yesterday, the blush of color on this orchid caught my attention, so I brought it home and experimented with settings.   I love the variety of hues found in white.

In An Instant

When we meet,
Everything changes.
We create unwittingly
Moment to moment
And all is made new.

Wind Storm

I love smart phones! Our Internet and Cable (television) are out, yet I can sit on my couch and blog. The wind last night was amazing. For sure ninety miles per hour is a reasonable estimate. I hate high winds. They scare me speechless.

Anyway, we are safe and warm--hooray for warm. We have electricity and heat. Electricity means we have coffee!

Since there will be few distractions today, I may shoot a still life (or two). No way am I shooting outside in temps around 18 degrees. Brrrrrrr!

Wishing you all a safe, warm and cozy Sunday sipping hot coffee, or cocoa--topped with a mountain of whipped cream!

Solitude, Silence and Meditation

There are times when I crave silence and solitude--a time of meditation and contemplation.  Spending time with beauty fills me with peace.

Looking for Junk Today and a Lovely Sunset

Today I would like to go rummaging around a couple of junk shops--never know what will be found.  :-)  Will also look for another orchid.  There are some beautiful ones out for sale now in preparation for spring and Valentine's Day.  The one indoor plant I am good with is the orchid. 

Caught this end-of-the-day show a couple of evenings ago.  One really has to move to catch the sun before it sets.  Once the light begins to diminish, it disappears quickly.
