I visited New Mexico for a few days in May. The only thing I asked was to get some time to photograph White Sands at those times when the light is “magic”. It happens twice a day – sunrise and sunset. My scheduled day came and, boy oh boy, was I excited. However, driving to the park, the skies became more and more threatening. That was okay by me. I could try my hand at photographing the lightning. It was the whole making lemonade out of lemons thing for me. I was driven to take photos and practice getting the images I wanted and a little bit of rain was not going to stop me. In fact, the sky would be fabulous, I reasoned. It will only make the sunset colors better and the sky more interesting.Read More
I saw this on a blog in which a photographer was being interviewed. This was her answer to the question: “What is your favorite quote?”
I made this photo in New Mexico a few years ago. It always makes me chuckle a bit. Someone has a keen sense of humor and somehow, in my mind, seems to kind of fit the quote I selected for today. Happy Wednesday!
I’ve been looking through some of my work to submit for a Call for Entry that I may or may not have time to complete since the deadline is quickly approaching. As I was flipping through photographs, I paused at this one. Is it a good picture? Absolutely not. But today, I saw it with new eyes. It reminded me of how seeds of anger, bitterness, resentment, pride, greed, …(you name it), finds fertile ground in our heart and grows uncontrolled until we prune the growth. So,today, I like this picture a lot, because it reminded me to do a little pruning.
