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!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Janis, your challenge has been very wonderful to follow. Seeing what one can see through the lens of the camera when you choose to see differently is enlightening. Very interesting pictures.


  2. I can just imaging how you felt about being there in the quiet when it’s usually full of life and people. Love all that you saw and the things you chose to see that might otherwise be overlooked. The light and reflections is stunning. Hope you soaked it all up 🙂
