Tuesday’s thoughts …

” This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse. Then come close to Nature. Then, as if no one had ever tried before, try to say what you see and feel and love and lose… “

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

Happy Birthday Shelly!

Earlier this week was my good friend’s birthday and we had two celebrations. This one was with her family and I felt honored to be there to capture some special moments.
She is a lovely person and has been there with me all along my second round of chemo and through my stem cell transplant till now. I can’t imagine my life without her in it. Happy Birthday Shelly!

Seeing in Black and White..

It’s been raining here over the last few days which has kind of put me into a black and white kind of mood. It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve been able to edit photos due to being sick from chemo and in that time I realized I haven’t done much B&W. While I haven’t been able to edit I have been able to peruse other photographers images, mainly B&W and boy how I love them and miss doing them.. they create a different sentiment then color and can turn images towards a new direction not seen before. Yesterday I was finally able to edit for a bit and had done so in B&W. I’m thinking I need to do this more.. hope you enjoy these various scenes as much as I do..
