It does have a very intimate feel to it, Charles! And a softness that works well with both your subject (flower) and your topic of contemplation :)) Beautiful work! :)) +Charles Lupica​

+Charles Lupica and +Jean Michel Missri would like to announce their Paris Long Exposure Photography workshop featuring Paris La Defense, the Eiffel Tower and other iconic Paris monuments.  Join Charles and Jean Michel as they explore the city of light. The workshop includes classroom sessions where Jean-Michel and Charles will teach you how to capture the magnificent architecture of Paris and then warp it into surreal scenes.  We will demonstrate many techniques for creating these images and will use participant images so that we can help you envision what might be.  We will visit many iconic Paris locations, shoot some street photography and capture the night a long the Seine River.

best regards

Paris abstract: reflections on Peace.  


I have used this technique for many years to add reflections to animals and flowers. My friend and fellow Master of Photography in the Arcancum, +Jean Michel Missri , has been showing some of his abstract architectural images of La Defense.

“Humble and Kind”
[words by Lori McKenna, for her children]

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie.
I know you got mountains to climb, but
Always stay humble and kind

When the dreams you're dreaming come to you,
When the work you put in is realized.
Let yourself feel the pride, but
Always stay humble and kind.

Don't expect a free ride from no one.
Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why:
Bitterness keeps you from flying.
Always stay humble and kind.

Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love.
“I love you” ain't no pick up line, so
Always stay humble and kind.

Don't take for granted the love this life gives you.
When you get where you're going, turn right back around.
And help the next one in line;
Always stay humble and kind

[Tim McGraw version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awzNHuGqoMc]

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because at some point in your life you will have been all of these.” ~ George Washington Carver
