Day 138 – Does anyone else remember Saturday night slide shows? The hum of the circular carrier and the smell of heat from the lamp, the occasional backwards or upside down slide, and of course, the endless viewing of unknown places and faces from your parents’ past.
Day 137 – “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Rockford Teachers Strike 2012
Day 136 – The school district and the teachers’ union could not reach a tentative agreement last night. Classes are cancelled today although more negotiation meetings are scheduled for this afternoon. I wonder what lessons will be learned from this experience?
*Full credit for this photo must be given to my talented son who took the picture because I was driving. Thanks kiddo!
Day 135 – I dream of distant shores where the world is new and nothing is so familiar as to be taken for granted.
Day 134 – I thought the underside of this lovely tulip looked like a monster face with a long nose, so I decided to have some fun with it. The title “Onda Blomma” is Swedish for “Evil Flower”.
Day 133 – I knew a woman who loved daffodils. She painted them on sheets of shale with delicate calligraphy.
Day 132 – Another day spent in the garden and then in the photo studio. These beautiful pink tulips are really vibrant but I had fun adjusting the colors and texture of the photograph. I can’t wait for the irises to bloom this summer.
Day 131 – The garden is bursting with beautiful colors. I had a hard time picking out my favorite today. I chose the little grape hyacinth since blue is my favorite color.
Day 130 – Nun’s Orchids using a few filters and color adjustments.
Day 129 – I posted this print today on my Fine Art America site. I titled it, “Flowers for Thee”. Sometimes I have trouble finding just the right title for a photograph. What title would you give this piece?
