… entering my mind and viewing the process by which I create the composites … what do I look for and how do I meld everything into a seamless work of art … spooky thought to be sure, but it is Halloween tomorrow or really it is right now … agreed it is a somewhat scary place I live in … it is called the moment, the only time I have and the only time I am guaranteed. It is where I set the stage for all that is to follow in what will soon enough be the moment.
Sorry I did not get a missive and photo out last night; have been working nonstop on the presentation which will be on Saturday at the Mary D. Fisher Theater in West Sedona … time is 1:30P to 3PM and you can check out the topic and buy your tickets online at: http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/441295/ac5a0bfc98/1480000867/438aaf72e3/ . About a third of the time will be allocated to the Abstract and Still photography and the rest on the Imagined … me unleashed and cut loose. It will be a fun afternoon and hope you will join Andrea and I as we participate in the final presentation of the Photography and Philosophy series. Hope to see you there.
We had a fun gathering of the ISO 100 group tonight, fourteen showed up for terrific hamburgers and fixings and some incredible photography. I don’t care who takes it, I love to see good work and our group is comprised of some of the finest photographers anywhere and some of the most creative … fun!
The image tonight is a composite I put together this evening and will be used to transition from the Abstract to the Imagined on Saturday. A petrified log I saw on a walk and it shared some of the beauty that the eons have presented it with … some of them became visible to entice me back into it … I remained here.
Into the weekend … enjoy your days and I’ll be back Monday morning.
Smile and share your joy
Give me to glady go
My way and say
No word of mine own woe;
But let me smile each day
