Nuance. . .April Moon Day 6

I'm playing along with Kat over at I Saw You Dancing 
and her April Moon reflective writing challenge.
I can't promise I will write everyday 
but I do promise to post at the very least a photo, 
 art, or some thing each day during the next 2 weeks.

Today's one word prompt is NUANCE.


Nuance - a subtle difference in...

I immediately thought of a series of photos
 I took last year at Grand Central Station, NYC.

I stood at the top of the stairs and 
captured moments in time
via double exposure.
The movement, the light,
the hustle, the stillness,
the nuance of the moment
in a single photo.

I could have taken a single exposure,
or even a series of single exposures,
but it wouldn't have had the same emotion.
It wouldn't have captured the nuance.


Focus. . .April Moon Day 5

I'm playing along with Kat over at I Saw You Dancing 
and her April Moon reflective writing challenge.
I can't promise I will write everyday 
but I do promise to post at the very least a photo, 
 art, or some thing each day during the next 2 weeks.

Today's one word prompt is FOCUS.


As a photographer, focus, for me, 
is how I see the world around me.

In life and through my camera lens 
I am often focusing on one thing
and missing everything else around me.
This isn't a bad thing.
It is about catching the moments
and capturing that exact instance.

A good picture focuses on that moment
and can transform the viewer 
to that exact place and time.

Home. . .April Moon Day 3

I'm playing along with Kat over at I Saw You Dancing 
and her April Moon reflective writing challenge.
I can't promise I will write everyday 
but I do promise to post at the very least a photo, 
 art, or some thing each day during the next 2 weeks.

Today's one word prompt is HOME.


The word home transforms me back
to where I grew up
and a part of me becomes 8 again.

A small town in the Midwest.

A home of values,
community service, 
love,
hard work,
church on Sundays,
family card playing on Saturday night,
dinner at the kitchen table together,
bicycle riding around town,
the footbridge,
beautiful front yard gardens,
next to an old pick-up truck,
my Mom creating art,
my Dad's hands fixing everything,
my little brother tagging along,
laughter,
straight talk,
and a community that is a one big family.


Love begins at home, 
and it is not how much we do...
but how much love we put in that action.

Juicy. . .April Moon Day 2

I'm playing along with Kat over at I Saw You Dancing 
and her April Moon reflective writing challenge.
I can't promise I will write everyday 
but I do promise to post at the very least a photo, 
 art, or some thing each day during the next 2 weeks.

Today's one word prompt is JUICY.


The photo above was taken during the first few days 
after we arrived in California.
I grew up in the Midwest.
I didn't see my first ocean beach until I was in college.
So, to put my toes in the ocean,
see dolphins swim past the beach,
surf,
collect heart shaped rocks and sea glass 
is all so juicy.

I mean, OMG, I am enjoying
every juicy minute of it.
