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.

a wave rolls

over me

the change

in you

 

splashed over

and over

evolving

and maturing

 

my eyesight

is renewed

with the

progress you make.

 

hearts lighten

years roll away

youth and pure energy

consciousness leads the way.

 

 

 

following Angels

a path

i follow

led by you

wrapped in a glow

 

of white mist

and golden glow

it’s all i

can do

 

safely led

to circles,

of you

and others like you

 

vibrating

in time,

correcting any

and all inaccuracies

howling my name

blog

never before

have i heard

this calling

ringing in my ears

 

like a howling

you call my name

i hear it

off in the distance

 

haunted by

knowings of you

i dare not ever

go astray

 

a tractor beam

holds me

in place,

forever your love

 

all lit up

in prison

i sit

writing poetry

of you

 

no matter

where i go,

i am spoken to

bout the rays of the sun

 

moonlit days,

fiery nights,

glory be to god

look at what’s to be

 

excited hysteria,

a global folly,

flashlight at

the ready
