All Terrain

©SC4 copyAll terrain. There’s tire marks on this sculpture. Wide tire marks. Like, you know, from a mountain bike. I’d love to see what they’re doing off of this. And it used to be BMX.

These were colored fibers, pulsing tendons. Animated hue strands, ambiance alive and shimmering. Some shifted saturation, like tiny teardrop quartets signaling a chameleon of effects. So much going and yet incredibly silent. I crossed grateful admiration and let it play. It seemed easy enough. Unblemished evening coupled with true pleasures. Something solid about it all, even with those ragged trees protesting with equally grotesque limbs, demanding to be clothed in chlorophyll once again. I felt simplicity and gratitude, all of this combined against a ghostly pale (Emo) horizon. This too without java accompanying my bones.

365 Days of Flash Photography, With Day Number 80… Nippiness

Here is Day Number 80…

Adjusted80 Been out on a few late evening walks. Mostly downtown, since Salem is the happening place. Weather wise, it’s been nice. Yeah, it’s beginning, the whole September nippiness. I guess that’s actually a word. Not quite fall, but you can feel it starting to happen. It’s the same thing every year, however with us Oregonians it’s kind of a big deal, because we all love fall and we all hate to see summer go. If you’re from So Cal, then you have no idea what I’m even talking about.


Friday the 13th: Spirits, Among Us


A lady on Coast to Coast AM, “Sage does not get rid of ghosts. All it takes is one incidence for a skeptic to change their mind. Remote viewing has helped me, these places are loaded with spirits and beings and creatures.” So, if you see strange lights, or foggy rooms, weird shadows, hear noises that sound like voices…there’s a good chance it’s a spirit being or entity from another world. Hand over your skeptic card, and accept your pre-qualified Spiritual Companion card, because entities are everywhere you want to be.

Here Is Day Number 11, with…

Wading Light 

Adjusted11Pretty simple shot. Long exposure. However, I wanted the tile at the bottom of the pool to pop, come alive. I achieved this by using my flash. You can see the difference by checking out the photo below, which was taken without an off camera flash.
