In a way, this one is my favorite because I didn’t think they would even notice me from across the street when suddenly one of the girls started waving to me.  It turns out as I was watching them, they started watching me – a good twist on the seeing differently idea!

Seeing Differently Challenge 2016-Last 5

Alone in the church with no lights on felt a bit like a guilty little kid trespassing as usual. But I never let that stop me before. This time I could take the pictures I wanted to.  I’m usually photographing grandkids and nephews being baptized or making First Communion and weddings.  Not this time.  This time it was a very intimate setting.

Thanks to Robyn G for hosting this challenge on her Captivate Me blog! I did learn a lot from participating, generated a bunch of new shots and as a result came up with some good ideas for a new series!

Is It A Finish?

Is It A Finish?

Below are the numerous manifestations of my latest work , more or less, as it developed. I made it in sections that I will somehow tie  together to finish.

Below is the what I think is my final choice. What do you think?

The text is a Rachel Carson quote: “If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow.”

As I worked on it the events at Standing Rock to attempt to stop the Dakota Pipeline construction was unfolding. It still is.  I’m naming this piece “I Stand With You.”

I’m pretty sure this is the final selection.

Once again. linking up with Nina Marie Sayre.


I just tried to place a pic in my comments section but see it’s not capable, at least azt this point.  SO I’m playing around with adding some text, as Anni Hunt has suggested.  What do you think? The running text at the top is hand written but these may be the same or may be transferred on if I decide to go with it.
