6 qUiRkY Questions with Ainsley Kellar, Featured Artist October 2012

Linda Lees Linda Lees 1340 posts

This month I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know a little more about the delightful Ainsley Kellar who is our featured artist for the month of October 2012.

Most of the work in Ainsley’s gallery is straight from camera photography, with just the occasional shift to b&w. I also love her talent for naming her gorgeous works, she comes up with some romantic and beautiful titles.

Taken from Ainsley’s profile- “I am passionate about capturing what is real and spontaneous, I thrive on lassoing natural light and enjoy a wide variety of genres. I simply adore photography.”

So please sit back with your favorite cuppa and take a moment to get to know our FABULOUS featured artist Ainsley Kellar a little better through the LONG or SHORT of our 6 quirky questions. :)

6 Quick qUiRkY Questions

1. Drinking – Long Island Tea – or Short Black Coffee ??
’What is your real fav drink ’ ……………
I adore a short black coffee (especially an espresso in Italy) but I’m not opposed to the occasional Long Island Iced Tea!
’What is your real fav drink ’ I love smooth cocoa-mint tea, iced or hot.

2. Taking Long walks on the beach or a Short brisk walk in the park ??
’ Whats you fav exercise’ ………………
I live for taking long walks on the beach!
’ Whats you fav exercise’ I recently discovered weight training which is empowering but yoga will always be the perfect mind/body exercise for me.

3. Long lengthy phone conversations or Short Quick text to keep in touch ??
‘Do you spend a lot of time chatting on the phone’
Long, lengthy phone conversations are super; especially to keep in touch with beloved out-of-state friends.
‘Do you spend a lot of time chatting on the phone’ – Not a lot of my time is spent on the phone, but a good conversation can really lift the spirits and put things in perspective.

4. A Long lengthy candle light dinner or a short preparation TV dinner ??
Do you get to spend much time in the kitchen ??
On occasion, a sumptuous, lengthy candle light dinner is delightful but my life is more geared toward short preparation meals with my Ava. Not so much the TV dinner variety, but definitely something easy and healthy.
Do you get to spend much time in the kitchen? – Not really. I’ve never been much of a gourmet, but I do an excellent impression of Julia Child!

5. Using a Long distant zoom lens or a Short distant wide angle or macro lens ??
‘What is you fav lens’
I use both a short distant portrait lens/angle as well as a macro lens.
I think my macro lens is my favorite, having discovered through it a hidden world within our everyday world where the hairs on a bumblebee’s head can be counted or a miniscule seed pod from a dandelion takes on a magical, effervescent glow, covered in shimmering dewdrops…
(See “There is Magic in the Miniscule” below. LL)

6. Do you prefer wearing Long Johns or Short boxer or girly briefs ??
Just for fun ( LOL) hehe !!!
Honestly, I prefer comfort in my underwear… Boring, cotton, granny-panty comfort! :)

Please tell us about FABULOUS you in 25 words or less?
My daughter Ava is my everything. I am a hopeless romantic, a homebody, I adore all animals, love rainy days and being a loyal friend.


Never Let Go Of Your Dreams….

My Strawberry Blonde Baby…
by Ainsley Kellar Creations
The Palm Tree And The Coconut
I was once a lonely palm tree
Alone as I could be
Til one day there appeared below
A coconut on me…
By day we’d sway
And watch the world
Beside an azure sea
By night we’d cuddle close, us two
In sleepy harmony…
When hurricanes came hurtling through
And tossed all others down
I stood strong and kept her safe,
Secure above the ground…
And when my little coconut
Ripens and breaks free
She will always find my love
Beneath this proud palm tree…

Too Old For Pigtails, Too Young To Let Them Go…

The Way She Sees Me
by Ainsley Kellar Creations
HIS LOVE FOR HER WAS TIMELESS
If I slip through time
Will you follow me still
Would you grow old with me
Hold my hand as we mill
Around in a field
Of daisies in June
Our worn out old bodies
Slow dancing in tune
To our song that began
When we were so young
I can still hear it now
“You were always the one…”
The Palm Tree And The Coconut
I was once a lonely palm tree
Alone as I could be
Til one day there appeared below
A coconut on me…
By day we’d sway
And watch the world
Beside an azure sea
By night we’d cuddle close, us two
In sleepy harmony…
When hurricanes came hurtling through
And tossed all others down
I stood strong and kept her safe,
Secure above the ground…
And when my little coconut
Ripens and breaks free
She will always find my love
Beneath this proud palm tree…

Oceans Apart

Ava By The Window
by Ainsley Kellar Creations

My Crayon Life
Sifting through
The many hues
That’ve colored in my lines
I recollect
As each connect
A palette that defines…
The who I am in crimson red
When injustice flames my head
Or shy am I when colored by
A hint of yellow thread
The blues of youth that I swam through
Have turned to sparkling pinks
With middle age comes mellow shades
A big relief, I think.
But most of all I give great thanks
For the vibrant, vast array
For I prefer a rainbow world
To black and white or grey.
