such quantities of wind

on the floor of a spacious room

summer room–

and still not quite enough


kite day
kite day

get your camera out and join in the fun …  Vivid


The Year of my Life

My happiness

                I find

In filling my emptiness.

My emptiness

                I create

In seeking happiness.

Visit The Daily Post to view this week’s challenge: Split-Second Story…become “a documentary photographer and attempt to capture a candid moment of a person, place, or thing. Put your National Geographic hat on and tell a story by documenting a moment in time through a single image. Capture the thrill of a skate park, or the calmness of a café patio. Let your imagination inspire and guide you.”

One of the best ways to understand how the over-all space of creative expression reflects its parts is to imagine yourself inside the space of the artwork…select a place within the composition where you would like to locate yourself for a few minutes of contemplation. …imagine…passing through different areas of the artwork…feel…energetic patterns.
