Photography Through Old Age

Question: How can we continue photography through old age? 
   Years ago I started doing still life because walking was becoming difficult. Next came the sunrises and sunsets (taken from our front porch) while my father struggled with Alzheimer's. Life is short. Push to do what you can do. 
   Artists are driven. There is no turning back. Stopping is not an option. Keep going. Keep doing. Keep growing and sharing. Share beauty when you find it. Share the joy and the sorrow. Tell the truth. Say what you have to say. Show what is true, where you are. Do it. Do whatever your "it" is.

* * * * * * * *
Helpful Hints: Use a tripod and a remote, if needed. Get a rolling camera bag. Use a phone camera, or a point and shoot, when your gear gets too heavy. Sit and shoot. Shoot from your car. Pay attention. See what is right in front of you. Images are everywhere.

Black and White

I love experimenting with my iPhone.  Yesterday I decided to enter the world of black and white using a variety of apps.  This is a test.

Sunrise Today (IOS--iPhone)

This morning I was up before sunrise and felt compelled to go out and see the sun peek over the mountains and rooftops. For me, taking pics first thing in the morning sets the tone of the day.

Catching Up

Oh my, I have fallen behind with my posting here...Yikes!  Time to do a catch up. we go:

Working with Procreate on my iPad, I was able to create a small painting and add handwritten notes.

Next, I shared on Facebook this watercolor that was painted in 7 minutes during what was to have been a 45-minute demonstration (back in the 70s while giving a watercolor workshop).  Demonstrations would usually take 45 minutes.  Seven minutes was a huge surprise for me.

 Sunflowers in a crock.  Taken with iPhone and edited using iPad.  By the way, sunflowers are heavy.

Bowl of cherries painted using apps on iPad from iPhone image.  I really like how this turned out.

iPhone image edited on Ipad with a look of moonlight.
