So many people hurry by them, afraid of what will happen if they linger. Some petition and harass and chant: “Tear it down!” They look but they don’t see. Perhaps, like old signs that have seen better days, rundown buildings give off a sense of history, of lives – and businesses – that have lived and [...]
The calm of fresh fallen, undisturbed snow on a field as it glows orange or pink with the rising, morning sun. The beauty of branches still heavy with that fresh snow before the wind and the sun scare it away. Long shadows of those trees cast on pure white. Ghostly footprints – all that remains [...]
I met my new love while visiting Dallas last year. It was a grey, dreary day. The rain poured down all around us. I looked up through my long hair, clumped together in wet, dripping locks… and that’s when I saw my new love. The sign of the unoccupied Alamo Plaza Hotel Courts. That’s when [...]
Flowers… I always tried to steer clear of photographing flowers. They’re just so small and boring and, like, everyone photographs flowers! I need to be unique! That’s what I always thought, anyway. Then, one day, that all changed. I can’t remember why it was, that fateful day, that I went out to photograph a flower [...]
What place brings thoughts of fear, sadness, monsters and all around creepiness? An old graveyard, perhaps? For me… for me, gravestones and cemeteries bring different thoughts and feelings: wonder and interest… and questions – who were these people who’s names were etched, long ago, into moss-covered stone? How did they die? What were their lives [...]
It’s strange… I’m not a huge fan of abstract paintings, but of all the different types of photography I’ve done, creating abstract pictures is probably my favourite. I love looking at a scene or subject and trying to figure out how I can transform it into something else. Can I zoom in; remove the subject [...]
When I introduced my Flickr page, I said that I would highlight one set or tag a month. For my first month, I decided to spotlight what is currently my favourite thing to shoot – architecture. You will, of course, find photos of buildings – even close-up, detail shots – in my photos going back [...]
As you know, I’m a photographer (or so I tell myself when I’m feeling all ‘I rock’-ish). If you’re really observant and you’re been reading my blog for a while (I’m fairly certain none of you would fall into this category, as most of you weren’t around back then!) I had a blog site dedicated [...]
…So little time. This post is inspired by Mama Kat’s blog prompts. The prompt I chose was to write a list of 30 things I wanted to do over the summer. My “list” will start today and hopefully be finished by September. Not all of these are ‘creative’ but I still thought I’d post here [...]
