An Acting Sculpture

I attended an acting retreat this weekend. We did active sculptures using eachother as the medium. I grabbed my camera for the final sculpture... the word was RISK. One actor sculpted the other three actors into place... very cool, huh?

New Orleans - A Quick Trip

A FEW of the photographs I took while in and around New Orleans a couple of days ago. I cannot describe in words the devistation that still remains in New Orleans, I had to see it for myself - and I did. Life will never be the same there... and maybe that is a good thing... the neighborhoods reminded me of Tijuana, Mexico.

The lower nineth ward of course is the worst. Where houses used to be there are fields of clover... LOTS of clover.

I am completely STRUCK by this photograph that I took during a recent prison visit. Can you tell this is a prison inmate? His body language shows me many emotions and thoughts. I can't stop looking at it. I hope this man has found the gift(s) of this experience and has learned from the experience(s) he has been presented. There's an opportunity for growth in everything.

Thoughts? Anybody? Bueller?

Who is that?

I hadn't seen Tim for seven weeks... He always grows a beard while we are apart, this was the longest one I had ever seen. I'm not too terribly fond of a beard on my husband, and when he comes home from the road, he likes to play with it before he shaves it off. He came downstairs to show me what he had done with it, and I snapped this shot.

I think what I did with it is pretty cool... he's the man in black (and white).

About FREAKIN' Time!

I have had BLOGGER BLOCK lately... nothing to talk about, nothing to post - even in the photography arena... until TODAY! The weather was gorgeous, and I actually got to spend some time with my husband... Yahoo! We went to a CRAFT fair, bought a couple of small original pieces of affordable art ($25 bucks worth)... and then unexpectedly got off the freeway downtown Nashville, and began to "tool around" a little looking for interesting things to photograph. My husband was kicking himself for leaving his camera at home... I on the other hand... like American Express card holder... I never leave home without a CAMERA!

So here are a couple of things we found... a cool old neon business sign that will someday disappear... my husband on an OLD dock where homeless probably sleep; cause there were some items there that indicated as such... a Nashville mural that I had seen on TV, but could never find... a couple of WHITE Graffiti artists who wanted to remain anonymous, and a VERY old farm house and barn that has 700 acres attached to it that is up for sale, AND where I shot my multiple award winning cow's shot... not a bad days photography if you ask me.
