Liberate Your Art
Photographer, Reader, Writer, Thinker, Dreamer
I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them.

I spent some time today playing with watercolor pencils in order to create some textures. I colored a few pieces of paper, scribbled a few scratches, and then blended the colors with water. Once they were dry, I scanned … Continue reading

It is almost time for a new travel theme, but here is my contribution to last Friday’s Travel Theme, hosted by Where’s My Backpack. The theme is sweet and this is probably the sweetest things that I’ve tasted in the … Continue reading
