15-06-27 Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse

“The Muse visits during the process of creation, not before. Don’t wait for her. Start alone.”

Roger Ebert

Too many variants on a theme to even get started. Muse. A random chance selection (thank you John Cage).

15-03-09 Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange Again

The challenge this week is orange. Now, of course, back when life was not as crazy as it is now, orange stood for the second highest terrorist alert warning color.  Ah, those were the days, eh?

But…

“Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose”

Gene Raskin

My first orange go is here.

But today I thought I would go with something a bit more traditional…

“Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze”

Sheldon Harnick

15-02-07 Weekly Travel Theme Photo Challenge (Outside The Lines)

“Visual ideas combined with technology combined with personal interpretation equals photography. Each must hold its own; if it doesn’t, the thing collapses.”

Arnold Newman

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Scale. Ailsa’s Travel Theme is Details.

I was out today playing with making double exposures in camera…when I looked at the images after I got home, I realized that they are chock full of details at scale. So I figured why not.
