I am a collector.  

Pottery, ceramic chickens, magazines...and lately, things I find when I walk the dogs.  

Like what?  

Well, acorns.  And these lovely pineconey things that look like flowers.  Nuts from my back yard that the resident squirrel eats round the clock. I filled up a glass vase with those for some free fall decor.

 And, after some high wind on Friday, mistletoe.

Have you looked at a acorn?  Go get two or three from different trees.  They come in all shapes and sizes...and the acorns themselves have different patterns on them.  And the caps.  All that lovely texture on the outside, and more pattern on the inside.

Here's some mistletoe.  I loveLOVElove the color.  The texture, too.

Go walk your dog and see what you find.

Graphic Saturday

Yesterday I got this graphic image in my head of my house and the neighbor's house as I was bringing home dog 1.  (I've started walking them separately because then I get more exercise and they each behave better on a leash but more importantly we have some one on one time) Then when I came home with dog 2, I went and got my camera.

After a while, I noticed there were some graphic things to see inside too.

That is all.

Carry on.

For Creatives...from Ira Glass

He's talking about stories, but this seems true about any creative endeavor...for me, it's photography.

Part of becoming a good photographer is developing an eye.  One of the ways to do that is look at other's art - including other photographer's art.  Most of what I like to look at is from the 30s-40s-50s BUT there is a current photographer I love: Rodney Smith.  I read recently he only watches movies made before 1947.

I think his work has a magical quality - and some whimsy.
