seeing and believing

We had a lovely afternoon at Tekapo recently – even Griff enjoyed the pilgrimage to the statue of the tribute to the humble but brilliant sheep dog. Burkes Pass was a picture on the way back to our shack – just an hour and ten minutes away.

Photo and Coffee

I have just finished reading “The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Book for Digital Photographers” from Scott Kelby.

I know, Lightroom 5 was JUST released and, of course, the “The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers” is already in pre-order, in the best Scott Kelby tradition! But that doesn’t change this book and the next one tends to be an expansion with the new features.

About the author, most of you probably know Scott Kelby. Photographer and author, I naturally felt into his material when I came back to photography, not long ago.

Writers Reflect

Photo by Liz gray

Writing is a curved process.  At least it is for me.  It’s never linear.  I start on a topic here.  And another one there.  And then I go back and add and subtract some words from the first piece.   Then I start writing about a third and fourth topic.   Then life interrupts me about 1,729 different ways and I don’t do any writing.  Then I play with my photography.  Then life calls again.

Will it all come together someday?  Will that novel in my head ever make it to print?

I hope so.

Writers today have to immerse themselves in every kind of technology you can think of just to get your name “out there”.  You try and promote your writing on Facebook, and/or Twitter, and/or a zillion other blog sites.  You have to submit and face rejection and often absolute nothingness.  You have to learn how to…

Moments you are not in my mind

I tell the sun

And all the beauty of this place

To be there for you

They are yours forever

While I am gone
