This month we will be looking for Gold. Gold is the colour of wealth, of power, of gods. Gold-leaf applied to paintings, gold crowns and coins. But look also for golds in the natural world, a fish, a sunset or sunrise, flowers and autumn leaves or sunlight on water. Or capture the light in the ‘golden hour’.
One of my favorite Holy Card pictures that depict Christ hidden in the Blessed Sacrament where the Mass of all times is offered.
Hello there, welcome to another Monday morning post from The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the prompt; From the inside.
What an interesting challenge, finding an image that represented FROM THE INSIDE. Looking through my years of archiving my images I did located this one I created a few years ago. It was created with alcohol ink, an art media.
Can color change? Color is beautiful as Life is beautiful and valuable to all!
Images below reflect the best way to GET AWAY!
Getting away through Lens-Artists. Advice from an elderly, an old woman, me!
We can’t stop the world and jump off! Even if we could, where would we land Our place is here; it’s not quicksand! Life is beautiful; happiness is at hand. Seek your peace of soul, a gift given! Relax and pray the only get away!
When I noticed this theme of reflection, I remembered a picture I took when I was experiencing HDR photography. As you know, HDR stands for High Dynamic Range imaging.
The story of this photo is: A long, long time ago, my now deceased husband, his grandfather made this mirror with his own hands, so it is truly a one of a kind. I have since passed it along to the next generation.
When it hung in my home, I noticed how the reflection was of steps going upstairs. I took the initiative to place some shoes on the steps; dabbling with the bit of knowledge of HDR imaging, I started to experiment. Results as shown below.
#treesquare challenge is still running till the end of the month. I remembered this photo I took and enhanced a few years back, thought I would share it here on my blog.
Joyce Kilmer’s poem “Only God can make a tree.”
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
If anyone seeing this ever is in Spokane, please don’t miss a trip to visit Mount St. Michael, a historic and beautiful treat for all.
For a hundred years, Mount St. Michaelhas stood on a bluff overlooking the city. One day while walking around the park-like area, I noticed this ancient tree that seemed to be showing off a graceful twist. I could not help but capture its image forever with my camera; with the help of my photo editor, I added a bit of glamour with color and a graceful dancer to couple with the oversized tree growing there.
