Surf's Up...
_Huntington Beach, California USA

Just as this determined surfer was heading out, a seagull graced the frame, adding another dimension to the design triangle. A little luck at best. Captured at F9, 1/1800 mounted on a tripod, ISO 1400 with an 80-200 zoom lens at 200mm. Time of day was sunset which provided the warm golden light.

Aretha Franklin - I Say a Little Prayer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtBbyglq37E

Photographs often serve as memories. This image was captured shortly after my mother's last breath when the hospice workers placed her hands in this pose. She was a woman of great faith, courageous, loving, generous and very kind. This may be the strongest symbolic image I've ever had the privilege to capture.

Monarch

Hugo's "flower to butterfly" by Eugene Field

Sweet, bide with me and let my love
Be an enduring tether;
Oh, wanton not from spot to spot,
But let us dwell together.

You've come each morn to sip the sweets
With which you found me dripping,
Yet never knew it was not dew
But tears that you were sipping.

You gambol over honey meads
Where siren bees are humming;
But mine the fate to watch and wait
For my beloved's coming.

The sunshine that delights you now
Shall fade to darkness gloomy;
You should not fear if, biding here,
You nestled closer to me.

So rest you, love, and be my love,
That my enraptured blooming
May fill your sight with tender light,
Your wings with sweet perfuming.

Are you making photographs or taking snapshots?
Either choice is ok. I have been studying photography for 33 years and am continually trying to learn and improve my work. I found this a great read, challenging and a refreshing post from +B and H my trusted source for photo equipment. These are not my images in the article.

Final Farewell
Nine Lives
#Caturday

Chloe
1995-9/2/2016
Age 21

Military Taps
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn_iz8z2AGw

We picked up Chloe as a kitten when my daughter was 4, she had nine lives, each one more beautiful than the last. She was a mellow, loyal, honest, gentle and a very loving animal. The collage is a collection of photos over the years, from a kitten held by my daughter captured with a 120 Hasselblad film camera (upper left), a Minolta point & shoot film camera (lower right), spanning an early digital Nikon Coolpix 3200, to a Canon Powershot G10 and Nikon D810. She was the most cooperative model I ever worked with and her rates were very reasonable.

Prints of Chloe are available on Fine Art America

Taken on one knee down low just before the sunset, shooting direct into sun, underexposed matrix meter -3 EV under mid tone with a105mm micro lens at f29, handheld 320s, manual focus, fill flash iTTL on lens axis -3EV. Color of light or white balance set to 10K for added warmth. Process raw in PS Elements, with a simple crop, decrease highlights, increase mid tones up the scale & plus slight saturation. +5 mosquito repellent.

Hang On
Monarch

The first monarch of the year graced my garden and posed just long enough to display her full beauty.

""How long does a monarch live?

The total time frame for one butterfly's life cycle (one generation) is about 6-8 weeks . . . egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly. It grows inside the egg for about 4 days. It then munches milkweed and grows as a monarch caterpillar (larvae) for about 2 more weeks. The caterpillar's life inside the chrysalis (pupa) lasts about 10 days and its wonderful life as an adult butterfly lasts from 2 - 6 weeks""

Homeless

The last time a global survey was attempted – by the United Nations in 2005 – an estimated 100 million people were homeless worldwide. As many as 1.6 billion people lacked adequate housing (Habitat, 2015).

Lower Fox Creek School
Flint Hills Kansas, USA

The Lower Fox Creek School house sits on the Tall grass Prairie of Kansas. Classes began here in 1884 and continued until 1930. Constructed of limestone, the basic one room structure was home to the children of the prairie, where they learned the basics, reading, writing, arithmetic and geography.
