{Weekly Photo Challenge: Face}

I’ll admit, this is a bit of Throw Back Thursday post.  Not something I usually partake in, but it fits this week’s Photo Challenge theme.

Photographers capture lots of faces – it comes with the trade.

As one who does not specialize in or even dabble with the art of portrait photography, most of the faces I have captured over the years are made of stone.

Like this one.  Isn’t she lovely?  IMG_3245

Her downcast stare speaks of a mournful longing, hushed and poignant at the same time.

She captivates my curiosity and imagination…

Still Life

Day 47 of 365:

{Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art}

This week, find inspiration in a piece of art. Then, imitate it.

Van Gogh!  Van Gogh, Van Gogh, Van Gogh.  When ever I see a vase filled with fresh flowers, I think of Vincent and his repertoire of beautifully, brightly, painted flowers in vases.

So when I spied this fresh floral arrangement (received by my Mother for Valentines Days this past weekend) I thought to myself:

“well hey – a still life subject”…


Because really, all bouquets are works of art, aren’t they?



Some of Vincent Van Gogh’s Still Life flower paintings, just because I like looking at them:

Sunday: Vintages{2}

Second only to our collection of cameras is our library of both old and new books.  The Hubby and I have acquired quite a few vintage publications, handed down from parents and grandparents…even great grandparents.  With their yellowed pages and that faint musty smell brought on by age – I love the characteristics of an old hard cover as much as I love the written words they contain.

Nothing sets off a crowded bookshelf like a few antique volumes here than there.
