James Day14,283You're invited to participate in a new G+ #art event called Google First Friday ~  #GoogleFirstFriday .  As with most new things Google First Friday will have humble beginnings. Given time though it will grow to be a great event for artists and art enthusiasts alike, to share the newest works being added to the art world each day. This is an event by and for artists. There's no need to starve or struggle if we all come together in support of each other. Hopefully over time that's what this event will become, a place not only to share your work but to connect with other creatives and to find patrons who love your art.  If you have questions, please check out the monthly art event #TwitterFirstFriday  which I've been curating since early 2014 https://twitter.com/hashtag/TwitterFirstFriday?src=hash. Over the past year it's turned into a sizable art event on Twitter. Please set your calendar for Friday June 5th which will be the first of many  #GoogleFirstFriday  art events to come! Thank you for reading and sharing, James DayGOOGLE FIRST FRIDAY2015-07-03 22:00:00204

Alan Shapiro3,906,568I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries.

This quote from Walter Isaacson in his biography of Steve Jobs has relevance today:
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things - that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it.”

So...quieting my mind and practicing zen with the tulips.

Do you see a candle? Or a hug?
A designer shawl? Or a dancer on point?
More importantly, do the words help or hinder? Do they push you further or ground you?

Finer Feathered Friends: The Red Knobbed Hornbill

Did this a very long time ago for the Ritz Carlton's 42nd floor Sky Lounge. The final has 127 layers and weighed in at 1.97Gb. It's fascinating to look back in time with a hyper-critical eye and note all the things I should redo. (Sigh) I guess our digital age is perfect for/makes it easier than ever to evolve one's craft. (But in doing so, do we diminish the art?)

Spent a weekend staring death in the face. 
Feel run over (like a possum...oh, possum) and left in the middle of the road.
Remembered soup is comfort food. And I sure do love this ladle.
Gah.
I suppose this is where my daily creative exercise becomes more like art therapy.

Coming together to bow our heads, support each other and say goodbye. 

When things are put in the ground, beautiful things are supposed to come up. Not feeling it today.

There is so much delight to be had (and shared) in the moments between The Moments.

Even better when the moments between The Moments become THE MOMENT.

Today I am taking a breath and just savoring the moment. And looking forward to making many, many more.

A new Echeveria for a new year. 
Happy 2016.
May all the things you choose to cultivate bloom as beautifully and bring you as much joy.
