Safer at Home

Staying home isn't a big deal for me, not much different from my normal. Of course I miss line dance classes, volunteering at the library, lunch with friends, and family gatherings. But I'm keeping myself occupied during this "safer at home" time. This morning, my "walk" and outing was to my atrium ...

... to capture raindrops. These photos aren't bad, SOOTC (straight out of the camera) -- my new little Canon PowerShot Elph190IS. I haven't played in PhotoShop for a while ... maybe I'll do that today (or tomorrow, or the day after 😊. I hope whoever reads this is staying home and safe!

I used to go to Ojai to see Krishnamurti speak. Under the oak trees, he quietly spoke about life and death. Happy memories of those times. I think of him often as I walk among the trees in the early morning, when it is quiet except for birds and squirrels.

Fragments #1

My newest journal for memory keeping is titled "Fragments". In it, I try to capture moments, thoughts, snippets of my life. I think I will post some of the photos here that I'm including in the book, and perhaps some that aren't being printed. So here is the first:

I love going to the beach after school starts and the crowds are gone. Last week I went down around 8am. There were walkers and surfers and me with my camera. There is something about lifeguard stations that have closed for the season that appeals to me. While they have been "abandoned", it is temporary.

Field of Flowers

I'm taking classes through Skillshare with Linda Matthews. Today's class is called Field of Flowers.

It involves using a lot of textures to create visual interest, combining photos, adding a vignette, and a border. This is the class project ... next I will use my photos/images.
