thanks to a friend of mine, i realized i havent added one of my all time favorite shots i have shot to date
i shot this in oct of 2006 after a serious but freaky wind storm, packing winds up to 106mph in the great smoky mountains
we were very lucky to have any colors around after that wind storm
this was shot using a kodak easyshare 6490, way before my guardian angel of photography marianne venegoni (photoeyes) put that canon XT into my hands,
that kodak and i, had to come to an agreement before it ended up learning how to swim or fly, or smashed up against a wall!!
i finally got that camera off the auto settings and learnt the manual settings, i played around with it, experimented and experimented, learning what i could and couldnt do with it (it sucks for shooting wildlife!) but..on this particular day, guess it and i..just..got along
i still look at this shot after i printed it, and go..wow..damn I took that !! lol
hope everyone enjoys, if anyone is interested in a something larger then a card..please contact me
its completely humbling when you have someone contact you and tell you , your work inspired them to be creative. this is the very first time in my life ive had someone approach me asking if they could give me their writing.
id like to thank loramae for this beautiful poem.
Rushing Past The Colors…
Laid on the floor of the world at our feet,
The beauties all of Heaven can afford…
Cast from the hand of the Great Almighty,
Creator of all things loved and adored…
Colors and hues unmistakable in beauty,
Gently caressing the days of our life…
Teasing and pleasing scents of perfection,
Waft through the air in most perfect delight…
Time in minutes and seconds build days…
such blessings live before the naked eye.
But for a moment stop and be so sure…
Your not rushing past the colors of life.
I tried to copyright this poem to Loramae
the copyright sign wouldnt work!
If anyone is interested in a card with this sentiment on it, please let me know, I have a friend who is a master with stuff like this and i can ask her to create the template for me.
Loramae..thank you from the bottom of my heart, and i am so glad this work inspired that beautiful writing.
