Another image taken with the Hipstamatic Basel combination. I really, really like this pak a lot, which means you may be seeing it a lot this month.

Something a bit different today-a still life processed through the usual culprits and then using the Jixi Pix app, Kyoobik Photo. I realized afterwards that this is similar to a still life that I put together last year. I guess I like clementines and fir-

Today is my mother’s birthday. I miss her. Though she was not much for poetry, I think she would have liked this sentiment–it is how she tried to live her life.

The clip below the image is a deleted scene from the original 1940 film Fantasia. It has special meaning as the melody, “Clair de Lune” composed by Claude Debussy, was among my mother’s most favorite pieces. She was among other things, an accomplished pianist and of all the music she played, it was the Romantic and the Impressionist composers she returned too again and again. I can remember as a small child falling asleep under the blonde wood Baby Grand that belonged to her mother as she played–and this piece was played often. (She later traded that piano in for a spinet of all things, one of the great regrets of her life.) It was only fitting then, that the strains of Debussy escorted her at her funeral. The segment too would have appealed to my mother for her tremendous love of nature and its wonders.
Love you Mom.

An overcast and cold rainy day today-this was just what I needed, courtesy of a local business and Wallace Stevens-

It is the time of year when the amaryllis bulbs are planted and we wait for the magical blooms to appear. Hubble is my helper today.
I also got a chance to try out the new Hipstamatic combo: Basel film paired with the Muller lens. I really like it and look forward to working with it more.

I had an opportunity to attend a local open studio event hosted every year by artist, photographer, and author, Catherine Anderson. Her studio space is nothing short of amazing–everywhere you turn there is something to spark creativity and spirituality. While her studio is filled with all manner of things, her backyard is another story. Here along with carefully placed benches, bird feeders, and statuary, there is a labyrinth. I was able to take a couple of pictures in between other visitors who either walked it or who decided to just took in the morning sights and sounds. I would love to have something like this in my back yard, but shudder to think of the “Hubble Highway”cutting through it.
