I have blog post up at Bellebooks/Bell Bridge Books blog -called: “The Stories are Made Real by the Telling” – I hope you’ll stop by to read and while there check out the other wonderful posts by BB authors! And thank you all for your supportive emails, comments, updates, messages on the release of the final in the trilogy Family Graces. I so appreciate you all — more than you may ever know!
Today is the day I go with my photographer/chef friend to buy my “Good Camera” – like a kid before Christmas, I could barely sleep thinking about it -teeheehee.
I love visiting Oregon. And not just because my precious granddaughter lives there, and my son and daughter in law. But because it is beautiful and interesting with mountains, water features, nature, beer (laugh – Asheville, NC beat out Portland, OR in beer city contest!), just as does my Western North Carolina.
Photos have their stories, too, don’t they?
So, once again, I leave you with a few photos casually taken, as I say goodbye to my Sony Cybershot – oh, my camera and I were best buddies! If it weren’t for the malfunctioning blobs and streaks, I’d keep it and use it every so often–perhaps I will anyway.
I’ll be returning to Oregon this summer to see “Lil Boop.” If you’ve never been, then you must . . .
I’m so excited because soon a local photographer (Christy Bishop) is going shopping with me to help me purchase my “Good Camera” — the camera for which I have been wanting for years. With nice lenses and–oh, I don’t know what wonders it will have – haw! *jumping around all yippity-doo-dah-day!*
I will miss my point and shoot Sony Cybershot–it’s taken some really nice shots and has served me well over the years. But, it has its limitations and I’ve outgrown it. And, it no longer takes quality photos. There is something wonky inside the workings that leaves dots and amoeba-like blobs and shadows. So almost every photo I take is ruined. But I couldn’t just delete all of the photos I am prompted to snap, so these messed up photos have me fiddle-dee-deeing with them in Picasso to hide the blobs, and the results feel nice to my chaotic pea-headed brain.
So, for my first “Friday Photo(s)” (Linky Love is on hiatus while I try out some other things), I’ve pasted in : A writer and her dawgs and a little pea-headed messing around, and a couple-a flowers from my cove walk.
Now, y’allses go have a wonderful weekend, and if you have photos and/or art on your blog/website, link to it–Rose & Thorn Journal is always on the search for art/photography. We are eclectic so it doesn’t have to be “traditional” – you can peruse our Art Gallery to see what’s there–some interesting, intriguing, beautiful work. Just be aware that I do not pick the art, so I’d only be referring your site to our Art Director, who, if interested, would contact the artist. For more information, go to R&T Art Galley and read up.
And the weird thing is, sometimes a photo doesn’t show those blobs/shadows at all, or they are so hidden I can’t see them, as in this shot . . . I’m baffled!
See y’all Monday – ! Have a great weekend.
