Peony bud with ant

Peony bud with ant

Friends, my computer was packed up ahead of the movers picking up all our stuff on Tuesday, June 20th bound for Fairfield, Iowa. We left Asheville, North Carolina, driving, on Thursday, June 22nd. So, this was my last chance to post an image on Flickr until after the dust from the move settled. (This is from my computer archives … I’d had no chance to make any new photos in the midst of preparing to move.) I hope that I’ll be able to circle back around to photography, and to posting regularly on Flickr, once I’ve recovered from the move. I also look forward to being able to relax into viewing and responding to your photos. Due to health issues, I’ve been away for too long, but … I’ll be back! 🙂

First In A Long Time

First In A Long Time

Over the past year I’ve struggled to summon the ambition & inspiration to actually work on photos. So this past weekend I finally decided to dust of the old computer, recalibrate the monitor, and transfer the photos that were sitting on my camera. I was surprised to find this shot of a butterfly perched just outside of my kitchen window. I have to admit that it felt nice to dive in and bring out the best of the shot. I don’t know if this will trigger a flurry of flickr activity but I liked this one enough to want to post it.

A couple…

A couple...

The summer holydays are in its middle and I’ve got a plenty of uneddited photos from vaccation waiting inside my computer and the dust is slowly and softly falling over them. It’s a lazy and busy time and I can’t find enough free moments to edit those photos. At least I had a while today so I prepared this lovely couple of dragon-flies. First of all, I noticed them when I was walking with my cam around a garden. They were in a position so they looked like a heart. I took several shots, but the best one was this and as you may see, they had changed their position a little and they don’t look like a heart anymore… Pitty, it could have been a nice metaphore for love.
