I hadn't been paying attention. This morning found me dragging myself around. It wasn't just my body, but all sorts of stuff swirling in my mind. Not thinking stuff...feeling stuff. At the same time, none of it was really accessible to "figure out". Then I saw last night was full... Continue reading

It's a quintessentially perfect spring day. Sunny, warm but not hot, nice breeze. Perfect for getting some weeding done in the garden. Continue reading

It's 'RoidWeek day two. I've got a whole lotta stuff in my brain this morning. The big (for me) Poland trip is less than a month away...yikes! Continue reading

The first day of 'RoidWeek 2024 for spring has dawned cold and rainy. Quite a difference to just a few days ago! Of course, I'm not ready for it to be consistently in the upper 80's just yet. So we're staying cozy inside this Sunday. Continue reading

Finally cleaned up the screened porch. It's that time of year! Continue reading

I want to make more of these. When I start back into a practice I've not done in a while, it takes some time for the sensitivity to return. The more I print, the more I come to understand just what I want to print and how to go about... Continue reading

This time of year, pretty much every morning starts with a saunter through the garden. I look to see how everything fared over night, what new might be blooming, and think about what needs to be done for the day. There's also a lot of just standing, staring, BEing in... Continue reading

And here I thought there was going to be sun again! The other day I took advantage of the sunshine and made more cyanotype flags. Since I'd also sensitized paper, my plan was to make some new wet cyanotypes. But alas, the skies have put the kibosh on that. Still,... Continue reading

What a glorious morning! The storm last night washed off the pollen and the plants this morning are sparkling. I never get tired of documenting this wonder... tipjar Continue reading

A couple friends and I headed out to Forrest Green Farm yesterday. It was a nice little drive...especially since I didn't have to drive! Instead I focused my camera out the car window. The situation once we got there really wasn't conducive to shooting much, so I didn't bring images... Continue reading

It's been so hard to get myself up as early as I'd like. At night when I'm going to bed I have great intentions, then for one reason or another that earlier rising time just doesn't happen. But...this morning it did. Those early hours with the sun just up, soft... Continue reading

The heavy pollen from the trees has been with us for over a week already. Still, the leaves hadn't quite pushed themselves out yet. After last night's storm, the sun shown bright this morning and I was a little taken aback by how green everything had become. It seemed like... Continue reading

One of my favorite things, especially in the growing season, is wandering around the yard in the morning. The bird song and botanical discoveries really set a good tone for the day. Today in the garden, a few new blooms are showing themselves. Choke cherry, may apple, aquilegia, lily of... Continue reading

Today I celebrate 10 years of being connected to this home, Baba Yaga's house. How quickly it has all passed. And while the reasons that I moved here weren't the happiest, I'm profoundly fortunate to have landed here. This home and this land has given me the opportunity to heal... Continue reading

After I coated a few pieces of paper yesterday (for my failed eclipse cyanotypes), there was still little bit of sensitizer left. I remembered the very old postcard paper that had been sensitized ages ago, that had languished at the bottom of a drawer. I decided to pull that out... Continue reading

I had this bright idea to make cyanotypes by punching holes in a box and sticking in a piece of sensitized paper. Ummm...just got a bunch of moving dots (with 12 minutes exposure...well, duh!). I also tried with a colander and a grater, but they were too close to the... Continue reading

With camera in pocket, I walked with Avery down to the river yesterday afternoon. The James was running on the high side, so there were quite a few kayakers out. Today I had planned to make a "how to" video for YouTube about shooting multi exposures and faux panos on... Continue reading

Let me preface what I'm going to write about, by saying that I've been thinking of getting a small sized pocket digital camera for a while. I want to stop relying on my phone all the time for out and about photos, because it tends to really get me out... Continue reading

I've been thinking about that Police song this morning. There are just so many things circulating in my brain right now. Not just "what the heck is wrong with the world?" sort of thoughts. But, "how do I make my own personal way through life as I age...how do I... Continue reading

The sun only peeped out a bit around 3:30pm. That being the case, it seemed like a good day stay inside and re-make one of my old YouTube videos. I've had a YouTube Channel since around 2007 (I think). For the first year or so I never posted any videos.... Continue reading

Sure, why not! These were made at the VMFA last month...Zero69 with Kentmere400 film developed in Ilfosol3. I'm diggin' the film again. Well, I always do but can go long stretches not working with it. It would be much better if it hadn't gotten so expensive. That just means I... Continue reading

Pinhole day is just one month away! What better time to get back into the genre. Truly, though, was I ever "out" of it? As I get myself back into being excited about processing film (sad to say, not one of my fave parts of the process), I look forward... Continue reading

The garden has gotten another good soaking. There were a few thunderstorms yesterday during the afternoon and evening. This morning is still overcast, cool and breezy. But the moisture on the ground and plants only make spring emergences sweeter. Continue reading
