emerging… in composure HA!

I spent this past month of August 2015, participating in a challenge on Instagram.

Surfing the pix and posts of other Instagram-ers… I came upon the #30daysofcomposition challenge presented by

Emma Davies Photography:::Photography for Bloggers website:  http://www.PhotographyForBlogs.com (check out her site for an upcoming September course)

I took this as an opportunity to get together a slice of my photography….and what I found was similar to what I found when I recently reorganized my resume…. I have a little something here and now I want to delve deeper into my emergence through composure…literally and metaphorically. Engaging with my photographs through a daily prompt of all the various elements and rules of composition such as leading lines, rule of thirds, framing, triangles, etc, i began to get a bit of a handle on my style and vision. Having more of a feel and appreciation in this regard has added confidence and a better-fitting direction to my Art.

With that, i give thanks to Emma Davies for her initiative with this challenge AND my glorious son for his ever-clear attention to detail and his stellar sense of beauty AND his computer genius.

Also, you can see these same photos and more at my Instagram

And without further ado, i share with you 30 of my photographs.

there is no quenching

the thirst

of never having

 

i’m huge  i’m invisible

i’m laughing  i’m crying

inside….and out

 

dealing in truth

no more passive aggression

skidding into

home plate

 

dirt on my face

scraped up elbow

beautiful badges

of un-blindered sight

 

ebbing back & forth

in needless attack

outnumbered in society’s

droning on of victimhood

on the inside

 

shows up

on the 

outside

disgracing the pact

 

going back

coming

forward,

stuck.

 

conscious 

decisions

to delete this

permanent hell

 

feeling fear

deeper

than ever

relief in sight

 

make friends

with it

gonna be around

for a while

her laugh

her laugh

that laugh

waves of sighs

moves mountains

 

crisp air

elevates angels

down & dirty

digging deep

 

dripping in glee

shaking into the light

glittered &  tasty

rushing to the center

 

skinny dipping

in a 

puddle of

joy

magical and

brilliant

cutting and

carving

 

into the

future

into the

now

 

reconstituted

feeling

all fresh

and fancy

 

wires

uncrossed

undone

neatly bundled

 

necessary

kindness

hearts glowy

and expanded

 

loveliness

smells new

sweet like

baby feet

she

IMG_0015

she laughs

with me,

she must go

never to return

 

she congratulates me

so happy

only when you give up

an empty well to fill

 

she can’t wait to hear

envious with curiosity,

show me the road

she is anxious for hers

 

she yells at me

sternly- don’t wait

life’s too short

not to know
