66/365: Dog in a Bag

This little doggie was in the seat next to me in the airplane when I went to Massachusetts. Her owner paid for her passage. I had never seen a doggie riding in a bag. It was counted as Luggage.

58/365: Sun Appears

I have been in the house two weeks, only out twice. Now the sun is coming out and will melt this snow away. Probably will not see any again until next year.

56/365 Cows Dwarfed by the Mountain

Sometimes I am just overwhelmed by the scale of things as I pass by. The hills are steep and rise sharply out of the meadows. The cows look very small against the mountainside

52/365: Brown Blue Gray

[singlepic id=124 w= h= float=none]
I have had such fun this week exploring tones. These images of the country side are almost black and white even without doing anything to them. I was always taught early on my first photographer teacher was all about capturing the shot and the full frame.

[singlepic id=122 w= h= float=none]

It has been quite a week, we have been snowed in all week.
I think the tones in this echo the storm as it leaves for 24 hours…. soon to return

48/365: Color without Color

[singlepic id=121 w= h= float=none]

We have a lot of snow for Tennessee. I am enjoying taking pictures of it while it lasts. It is fun that the theme this week is tones because it is one of my favorite subjects anyway. It is giving more impetus to my daily shots.

46/365: First Snow: Before Dawn

Uploading these now, a week later, I had no idea the snow that was in store. I thought this was a lot! The color of this is exactly as it was this early morning. It is often very very blue. The sun rises over the mountains to the right out of the picture, hence the pink reflection on the shed.

38/365: Under the Ground

Along the banks, there are many places where I can see the roots as they are underground. I love getting a chance at these little glimpses. Even though there is air to these roots, the plants still grow.

34/365: Love

It is clear to me that at the beginning of February I was busy! This is the only photo I took on February 3. It is a bracelet my Daughter Emily gave me. It is a symbol of a Mothers love, and it says Mom on it. I took this picture to show her how it looked.

31/365: Spring..?.

It always amazes me to see these on the last day of January. These brave daffodil shoots always come out at the end of January. It will be another six weeks or so before we see blossoms. Today it is snowing and I will photograph them when I go by them.

Who knew mud could freeze in a vertical configuration. I think it had to do with the way the water trickled down the hill. I looked at my feet when it began crunching

26/365: Student Experiments: Dominant and Subordinate

So today was the first day of 3d Design Class. These students have never made anything three dimensional; all their art experience is drawing and painting. I tasked them with bringing in things from home and/or using what they found in the classroom and experimenting with what it was like to make three dimensional drawings; to attach materials together to make something that might stand up or take up space.. They were to have either Line, Plane, or Volume be dominant

Our dear dear friends gave us these beautiful jars of vegetables from their garden, each with a beautifully tied Bow, for our Anniversary Present.
It deserved a photo.

19/365: Finished!

I had to commemorate this day. I began this piece in Summer of 2012 just before my father passed away. It was to be for him. It has taken me three years to finish. It has been a block in my work and now that it is finished I am able to move on. I am very pleased with the outcome.

18/365: Sky: the One Shot…

My brother’s wise advice is that the one photo you take might be the only one….this was out through the wind shield, and the first sunny day in a week. Now you all can ride down the Tennessee Highway with me.
