Time Outs

Taking a time out pays off.  You will return to shooting with a rested eye and your shooting will be fresh and new.

Suggestion:  When you find yourself grasping at straws, take a break.

A Page A Day

Writer's do it.  Photographers do it. Artists can do it too!
A Page A Day!

Time Out

A time out is when we take time to refill and replenish our creative stash.   These moments of quiet reflection are crucial for artists.  I have mentioned this necessity in the past and am bringing it up again because it is important.  With information and images going out into the world rapidly (lickety-split), there has to be some time set aside to refill an almost empty cup.  

Suggestion:  Every now and then give yourself a break.  Meditate.  Take a mini vacation.  And, remember to get in touch with real life.

Looking Forward

Question:  "What do I want to do now?"

I am looking forward to writing, reading, thinking and relaxing.

Trying to "keep up" on social media pages can, at times, be too much for me.  Lately, I have felt the pressure to perform.  I do not take pictures so folks will "oooooohhh and aaaaaahhh."  I shoot images because I love capturing light illuminating people, places and things.

I am old school.  I like clean images--sharp and fine.  I like  photographs that touch the viewer and speak through mood--images that evoke an emotional response. The bottom line is: a good image has to have contrast, some conflict or tension and tell a story.

New "stories" and revived memories will be posted soon.

Catch Up

I have fallen behind with my postings here again...darn!  One reason is the lack of time.  I post on Facebook and then have to post here and possibly on Flickr.

Here are a few of my recently created images:


Taken to be used later as a replacement sky in a future landscape.  Love the clouds!

 I am so excited about using the iPhone.  I cannot stop.  I am addicted!
