lane langmade17,194Dear +Style It Shoot it Challengers. You are cordially invited to attend our annual End -of - Year party this Friday January 17th  (and Saturday 2014).  If you ever – even if only once – participated in one of the Challenges last year then we invite you to joins us as we look back at our wonderful year full of creativity, hard work, styling, artistic challenges as well as achievements and of course our inspiration and wonderful masterpieces that were produced out of these challenges.  This party and gallery exhibit is to celebrate YOU and thank you -- the dear and wonderful #StyleIt   community members and challengers! Some have been involved since the VERY beginning challenge. Others we picked up later on through the year… but all of you stuck it out and didn’t quit. Many of you stayed and continued through various admin changes and hiccups. And without YOU we could have never built this community. Without you, we could never have run these challenges! Without all of you -- who helped, played, supported and cheered each other on -- we might not have our masterpieces we created.  In 2013 we had 10 challenges for 10 shots:  • Jan -- The Apocalypse & Create your Own Background • Feb --  Fantasy & Natural Light • Mar – Spring Thing & Portraits • April – What’s Black & White and __  All Over &  Costuming • May – Water Water Everywhere & Reflective Photography • June – Super Heroes Vs. Villains & Special Effects • Sept – Lighting our Lit & Artificial Lighting • Oct – Haunted & Low Key and Long E • Nov – Eat Me! & Make your Own Recipe • Dec – Winter Dreams & Shallow DOF We all struggled at times and felt defeated, and at other times we saw ourselves produce some of the best work we ever have and felt like we had conquered the world! Most importantly we GREW. We grew creatively as well as technically with every step we took, and we each made some valuable connections and friends in the process! Many of us picked up a new skill or learned a new aspect of their camera they never would have without playing these challenges. We are better photographers for it!  So join us and help celebrate our year by posting to this event album 1-3 of your BEST SHOTS or challenge masterpieces from throughout the year (2013)!  ( I know it will be HARD to choose. Also why not share out your 2013 Style It Album to your own stream in conjunction) We know you have em. Each and every one of you invited today, produced at least one work of art that you should be so proud of. Please share it with us and help us take a look back! Let’s see our milestones and our achievements lets celebrate photography, ART.. and gather inspiration to produce our future Style It masterpieces of tomorrow in 2014! One can only wonder what fantastic fun the moderators have in store for this year! ;) Here’s to an awesome 2013 and to a wonderful 2014 coming up!  Thank you, Lane & Kim #Style It ModsThe Best of STYLE IT 2013 End - of - the - Year Celebration2014-01-17 18:00:0051

transaction

I went out this morning looking for one thing, but found something else instead -- a field of summer grass just at the moment the sun was coming up from behind the mountains. The light hitting the grass as it swayed...soft violet and amber evaporating into the wind. There seemed to be a kind of rhythm...a tenderness in this transaction. It comforted me.

dorigen's lament

I remember reading in Chaucer
of Dorigen,
a woman who waits two years
for her husband to return from battle.
 
in this tale, she walks by the sea,
doing nothing
but dreaming of
the one
she’s separated from.
 
mostly I remember
that as she weeps and wails
while the tide and ships roll in,
she begins to fill the sea itself.
 
yes, I have not forgotten
that in the end
we are not poets
 
we are without words
and our humanity
 
just animals
 
first wailing
—then drowning—

wild turkey

I ran across this wild turkey obviously out in the…wilderness. And there was just something so elegant about this turkey and the way it was moving. How the light was bouncing off the grass surrounding it, creating this green hue that was so soft and warm it seemed to be evaporating into the air. In the lush abandonment of its own freedom, for a moment, even this turkey was graceful.

It just got me thinking about how we’re all graceful—all beautiful in soft, quiet moments during the day when no one sees. No one sees. And isn’t it amazing that our world is brimming with beauty and that each of us in some way is contributing to it.

Today I’m thankful that there is such a thing as “wild” turkeys, who get to live through Thanksgiving and enjoy freedom.

It's not every day you find red, white and blue together out in nature...so here's my #fourthofjuly shot--a macro of a red tulip staring into the sun.

Hope you you have a great day :)

conspiracy of night

after the sun sank
he stood
terribly silent
and                     alone

peering
through the bluegrass
in search of the discarded moon.

for only her untouched light
comforted him

in the great conspiracy
of night
that had become
his life.

soul mates

If you’ve ever seen two jellyfish “swimming” together, you know that for them movement isn’t about rhythm. Their dance isn’t about keeping time; it’s about going with the flow. They have no need for choreography because they create time through their syncopated movement. They move together, fluidly opening and closing -- filling each others spaces in a beautiful liquid embrace. Jellyfish make being two feel like being one so effortlessly, so easily that they can’t help but belong together.

So here are two “soul mates” today, performing a dance that is always out of rhythm, but in time.

spring green

There’s a certain kind of green that happens only as spring begins to take hold—I call it “Spring Green.” It’s that kind of thing where the grass is so “full” from drinking rain that it turns almost yellow. It’s positively bursting with energy and life. 

The photo I took this morning that I include here isn’t remarkable except that I think for the first time I was able to “capture” this special moment when Spring Green has transformed an otherwise unremarkable landscape into something marvelous—indeed, something magical. One of my favorite poets, e.e. cummings, would say it’s a time when the world is “mud-luscious” and “puddle-wonderful.”

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and happy weekend :)

#RememberingLeeDaniels

tears for Lee

I just learned that a good friend, Lee Daniels, a social luminary and photographer, passed away from a long battle with cancer.

Sometimes something is so powerful you just can’t talk about it. There are no words that could fully encapsulate what a loss this is not just for her friends and family but for all those whom her photography touched. No words to describe her amazing spirit, especially in the face of such great adversity.

I can only let my body and my photography express my grief today.

[Lee loved to photograph flowers. This one is for her]

Many of you are aware that today is +Luxe Langmade 's birthday. Since her favorite color is blue, I thought I might send her this dandelion and raindrop to help her make all her birthday wishes come true.

Luxe close your eyes and wish for your dreams to come true. Everything is possible but only if you know that it is.

winter's tale

[Submitted to #Christmastown  curated by +lane langmade  and myself.]

If you listen very carefully to the gusty wind, you can hear a story:

"It is a winter's tale
That the snow blind twilight ferries over the lakes
And floating fields from the farm in the cup of the vales,
Gliding windless through the hand folded flakes,
The pale breath of cattle at the stealthy sail,

And the stars falling cold,
And the smell of hay in the snow, and the far owl
Warning among the folds, and the frozen hold
Flocked with the sheep white smoke of the farm house cowl
In the river wended vales where the tale was told."

[excerpted from Dylan Thomas's poem "The Winter's Tale"]

echolocation


they say bats are blind,
but they “see” by sending out
high pitched echoes
to determine which insects
are edible

in the darkness of night, they fly,
screeching
to consume what
nourishes them

if I could see as well by day
as a bat does at night,
I would not find myself now
in the dark
drinking your poison

don't miss dreamforce 13

I haven’t been on as much lately. The reason is that work has been crazy preparing for Dreamforce 13, which begins on Monday, Nov. 18.
 
#DF13 is the second largest tech event and lasts for 4 days with parties running all night long. My work is a sponsor of the largest party which should have over 14 thousand people there. Green Day is playing at the Gala party. I’ll be handling the social media with a team of 5 people running over 8 different social channels.
 
Will you be at #DF13 ? If so, drop me a line. Perhaps we can get a cup of coffee?
 
Here’s a little video my co-worker Ben and I put together for #DF13 :). We haven’t promoted it yet, but thought it was fun. (He’s actually starring in the video.)

forgetfulness

You must ask yourself:
where is it snowing?

White of forgetfulness,
of desecration-

It is snowing on earth, the cold wind says...

I was in Paris in April last year. It had just stopped raining and the sun was starting to set. This is what happened.

"metamorphosis"


in your absence she felt the entirety
of the universe.
an emptiness that sprawled through
the sinews of time.

this was after all a sweet grief.

a grief like a great gash in the sky
hemorrhaging ruby and amethyst as the sun
begins to set

full of things that claimed her and took her out
in seas

where she knew nothing
except the horizon
and the sheer wonder
of her torment.

One of those photos I took a ways back and never posted...Not sure what I was doing with this except that the back of the dragonfly looked like encrusted jewels and the dragonfly itself like bizarre, metallic alien jewelry. I went with that idea and this is the result...

Apocalyptica Nothing else matters

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

dorigen's lament

I remember reading in Chaucer
of Dorigen,
a woman who waits two years
for her husband to return from battle.
 
in this tale, she walks by the sea,
doing nothing
but dreaming of
the one
she’s separated from.
 
mostly I remember
that as she weeps and wails
while the tide and ships roll in,
she begins to fill the sea itself.
 
yes, I have not forgotten
that in the end
we are not poets
 
we are without words
and our humanity
 
just animals
 
first wailing
—then drowning—

dorigen's lament

I remember reading in Chaucer

a woman who waits two years
for her husband to return from battle.
 
in this tale, she walks by the sea,
doing nothing
but dreaming of
the one
she’s separated from.
 
mostly I remember
that as she weeps and wails
while the tide and ships roll in,
she begins to fill the sea itself.
 
yes, I have not forgotten
that in the end
we are not poets
 
we are without words
and our humanity
 
just animals

songs of innocence

This is for days like today when I’m trying to remember my innocence. Trying to remember only a short time ago when I believed that people are good and trusted they will do the right thing. A time when I was still dreaming in color...

transaction

I went out this morning looking for one thing, but found something else instead -- a field of summer grass just at the moment the sun was coming up from behind the mountains. The light hitting the grass as it swayed...soft violet and amber evaporating into the wind. There seemed to be a kind of rhythm...a tenderness in this transaction. It comforted me.

A little photo with a little piece of poetry for +William Mazdra  on his birthday :)

"And in the aperture, the remnants of
a heavenly question, lightly brushed….[with]
consciousness"
