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.

down the path

one never knows.

exceedingly

curious

 

delirious

from the heat

thirst

never quite quenched

 

durable

and yet

so overly

sensitive

 

following

the scent

totally new

and unknown

 

loving the new

rabbit hole

usually

two show at a time

 

and then

deep rest,

and the 

new day dawns

 

hills to

slide down

new books

to devour

 

dumping out

my toolbox

rifling through

tricks of the trade

 

what inventive 

tale will be told

always enticing

never satisfied

 

dreams flowing

forward

have i met

you before?

 

a revolving door

kicks out

the next

contestant

 

i have an

app for that

    hey look,

now you’re blue

 

 

 

 

a new TILT

rousing your love

sounds below the low

loosening the knot

of who i’ve been

 

zero in on a vibration

i’ve been here before

and yet, it’s a whole

new perspective

 

driving away the rain

holding back the wind

breath free and roaring

frozen in the storm

 

narrowly escaping

silence of the stillness

a path enblazened ahead

warmed by the journey

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
