{Weekly Photo Challenge: Details}

Oh, I love this topic.  Totally my game.  🙂

Whether through words or photos, my life, my work, is submerged in the constant quest for details.  What I dig up, or discover, can be beautiful, ugly and sometimes completely amazing.  If I like them or not, and usually, I do, when a detail reveals itself to me, I am always thankful. Read More

What is up with hope?

Day 125 of 365:

{One Word Writing Prompt: Hope}


It’s a tricky word.

I do not like using it.  Not always.

The word Hope sets intention somewhere between the area aspiration and commitment rests.

Hope is, in my opinion, too passive.  Why merely hope for something?

I can’t think of anything to say about hope that makes it concrete.  I like black and white….hope seems grey to me.

Hope should probably make me feel optimistic, shouldn’t it?

Okay – that’s enough.  This is starting to feel negative.

Here’s an unrelated, pretty little picture of sparkly, dewy grass and early morning sunshine….

Abstracts (flowers and ice)

Day 117 of 365:

{Weekly Photo Challenge: Abstract}

It was hard for me to choose, so here are four:

Up Close
Clematis Heart
Window Ice

My love of abstract art often shows up in my photography.  I like to see how far into my subjects I can crawl with my lens.  Often the resulting image seems to be made up of bits and pieces, obscured details and mysterious edges.
