Daydreaming beneath a snow white trellis, listening to the whisper of flowers sharing secrets, I smile and think about everything in my life that I am most in love with.

  1. Wow, this is a beautiful shot ~ and the perfect words as well “whisper of flowers sharing secrets, I smile and think about everything in my life that I am most in love with” … being able to do this as you do, definitely a wonderful life you live πŸ™‚


    • Thank you~ with all its ups and downs– I am very thankful for the smiles, faces and voices of all the people in my life who bring me so much joy …. “flowers sharing secrets…” something they do well I think.


    • Thank you so much Emilio πŸ™‚ …awww thx! Yes this is new for me. I’m so very bored with me — ugh.

      So I’ve been experimenting with different angles, processing … I’ve also been challenging myself and my perceptions of strength, beauty, grace AND abandon– all in an attempt to translate a deeper atmospheric presence in both the subject and image — I’ve also been doing a little freelensing… experimenting with light — which, when I can manage to do it half way decently- I really like. ❀

      • I think it’s time for me to take a cue from you. We were out this weekend and I couldn’t find anything exciting as it all started to look the same. I have to expand my technique, my subjects, my processing. Just so no one expects the same from me all the time! Thanks, West!


      • I’d love to see what you come up with!! …Changing things up a little has helped me not to get blog-weary — although it is something I enjoy very much, it’s a little like running– every once in a while, you’ve got to change your tunes (at least that’s true for me!)

        and ps– your images and processing are light years ahead of mine~ so it’s not likely anyone would tire of your work just as it is πŸ™‚


      • No one but me. I do feel like I found a processing routine that achieves great results for what I’m looking to post. But at the same time, I’m doing it almost by rote. I could make a preset and use it on all my images and that’s not really what I want to do. At least, I don’t think I want to do it. I may change my mind again and conclude it’s great to have a recognizable style. Who knows?


      • I definitely think you have an distinct signature style that always fits your images perfectly. πŸ™‚

        Something I’ve tried to do is change some of my perceptions — take rust for example– the process of turning metals back to their unrefined, natural state… I love rust- and lately when I see it, instead of looking at it and seeing decay- I see a process of life instead- a return to nature in a way. This probably sounds very weird lol- and I don’t mean for it too– but just a small difference in the way I look at something- has opened new doors to me creatively… and given me some much needed inspiration. πŸ™‚ …I hope that made sense~

      • Weird? Not at all. I love your description of rust actually being a process of life. And I complain about always choosing the same types of subjects for my photos but I went out yesterday and that’s all I took again. It seems that’s all I see, though it’s not all that’s actually there. I just have to change my perceptions, too!


      • πŸ™‚ I realized after I wrote it that it might have sounded a little strange – but I’m glad you didn’t think so~ I have the same attraction to old, abandoned things… not so good at cars and such — I like houses MUCH better πŸ˜€

  2. Wow, youve inspired me again West. This is sooooo beautiful.
    Was reading your ‘chat’ with Emilio… A new direction is always great. Love your ideas and what you are doing πŸ˜ƒ


  3. Absolute perfection. What a delightful, enchanting image. Just gorgeous. What colour, what lighting…and such dazzling words to enhance the beautiful, dreamy moment. Ebullient cheers,

    Autumn Jade


    • How did I miss your comment!!? Thank you so much! Ive been experimenting with the light ~

      So far I find him a little perplexing … sometimes bright and carefree and others dark and moody but in the end, I guess thats why we love him so much! Thanks again Autumn J β™‘
