Sometimes moments present themselves, you just have to take back control of yourself to have a chance to savor them forever. ~Me

“A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.” ~ Ansel Adams
The below photo really isn't as sinister as it looks, but...  I just happened a chance to snap it while waiting on Chinese Food.  I used an Instagram filter on the photo, but I could not tell you what that filter was. 

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.” ~Dorothea Lange
The power went out at work one day this year. We could not work because the computers were zapped, the phones were about to shut down, and the emergency lights were about to go out. It takes over 30 minutes of running on battery for everything to finally shut down. We were bored and I snapped a few photos with my iPad mini.

“The Earth is Art, The Photographer is only a Witness ”
~ Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Earth from Above
On the drive home from a fancy Arbonne makeup party (we did little pedicures and facials) in Oak Ridge Tennessee earlier this summer, I caught this sunset. I had to pull over - and click, click, click. As far as I remember, there is no filter on this. Just took it with iPad mini.

The photo-machine culprit and some of my favorite things...  What do you see?

Critters on Parade; Part deux

So many furry babies, so little time.

I thought I would break the photos into a few blog posts. I would hate to blind folks with such wonderous views.... Yea, I said that...................................

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ~ Ansel Adams
Sake (as in Saké the Japanese Rice Wine), was old when he came to us via a pretty bad animal hoarder situation quite a few years ago. He often gazed at us so intently.

“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.” ~Robert Frank
Okay, actually Saké stared at us all the time. Such cute little ginger-eared sweetness...

“Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” ~ Alfred Stieglitz
Blu is always piled up in the bed with me, demanding attention. Neurotic little blue baby (of about 13 years old)...

“It is through living that we discover ourselves, at the same time as we discover the world around us.” ~Henri Cartier-Bresson, Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century
Kat is a fat little chunky girl who is all over me when I visit her parental unit. Every once in awhile I manage a photo of her...
