Crazy Love
Yah, I know you know that feeling.
(I'm diggin' that raised foot there ... ;oD ... I know that feeling, too! Of course, it was a dude, not a duck ... ;o7) If you need the mood music; here you go: https://youtu.be/oeE7BOLB8Jc ... <giggle>

White-faced whistling ducks (Dendrocygna viduata) ... but they were unable to whistle for this photograph ... ;o7

It is the loving embrace without the hands, very loving, gentle, tender-hearted. Swans, cats, horses and many different animals embrace exactly the same - and people too!)) It's the sweet embrace!)))

"O" Christmas Tree 🎄
Shot in Manual with my old Minolta 50mm that my Dad gave to me (back around A.D. 1 .... ;o7). I love the bokeh this lens gives!
#ItsAllAboutTheBokeh  ... and this week (and probably next ... ;o7), it's all about Christmassy bokeh! (according to +Leo Deegan ... :o)))


#FridaysAreBokehlicious  :o) … ˚ºoOoº˚

I admit, I am a #BOKEHOLIC !! I can't stop staring at the stuff ... :o)

Playing with filters for some pretty fun bokeh. This one is a B+W WZ2 Weichzeichner ... it looks like this → https://goo.gl/tSR72v. I can't really say it well, but I love playing with it! ... :oD

The Three

You are three. The person you are. The person they think you are. The person you think you are. Of the three, the last one is the only one that has the potential to hold you back the most. (rgw)

Believing is Seeing

"The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see." ... http://www.nysun.com/editorials/yes-virginia/68502/

Believe in yourself; believe in those around you. The most strong and tenacious people in the world know that trust comes first, not after.
Merry Christmas, everyone!

I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

In the past, I’ve never been much compelled to be very public. However, with the numbers in one private online community I belong to reducing like bills in a shore-leave-sailor’s pocket, a social network is possibly coming to a close for me -- so I am finding the need for an outlet of another kind. Or, maybe I’ve had a minor stroke and don’t know it.

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.


Let me begin with this: 

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires. 

Start!
