Do You See What I See?

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." ~ Edward Abbey
I guess next to writing words.. or telling tales.. My next favorite thing.. just before playing with dolls and feeding chickens.. would be making pictures.. Sometimes I make a picture and then go back and look at it and wonder why it doesn't look like I thought it might.. I have crawled under bridges and pulled myself up into scratchy trees.. I have poked my head between cracks in a pen and got bit by ants and crawled on by spiders.. all to show others what I thought I saw.. sometimes.. to wonder afterwards what exactly was it that I thought I saw..
I will Make pictures of anything that catches my eye...
Odds and ends.. spotted this week..
~ One by one they are just stuff..
but put them all together and they become a Collection!
People.. ~ " This IS My day Job!"
Places... ~ Five paces to the sand..
Normal everyday items...~ ~ I wonder where I put that bag?..
Critters.. I love making photo's of critters... ~ "Look close at me.. Do I look OK to you?.. I feel a little CROOKED today!"
But No other joy can compare to when I can get more than one thing in a photo.. A person.. place and a critter.. How grand is that?..
~ "Hey look! there are SHADOW birds on the sand! Maybe they'll eat these Cheetos.."
Sometimes I can talk Dave into a photo ride.. he barely slows down as we pass the
greatest people and places... me hanging out the window pointing the camera at folks as we fly by.. he is always afraid that we will get shot.. I like sneaking up on a photo sometimes.. I like abandoned buildings and flowers growing in an old boot.. I like the guys on the corner with their boxers shining and the girl asleep on her front porch swing... He will continue to warn me and I will continue to try and find something new and interesting.. and hopefully you will continue to see then all here eventually.. I am out there somewhere with camera in hand.. so if you see me pointing it at you.. please don't shoot.. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

  3. These are great! Thanks so much for joining in Shadow Shot Sunday. I'm sorry I'm visiting so late. Your comment was left on an old SSS post of mine so I almost missed seeing it. Also, that could be the reason you didn't see the Mr Linky gadget. It only appears on the most current SSS post each week.


Thanks for visiting me today!
