A Discovery!
Nature continuously astounds me! Just a while ago Brian said he saw a wasp carrying a piece of grass to a chair under our pergola. He watched as the wasp seem to disappear under one of the chairs. When he turned the chair over he saw a hole plugged with grass. We've had wasp problems this year but this one seemed unusual so I googled information about it.
It turns out that these wasps are solitary and docile. They will lay a few eggs in an small tube or space. The spaces are partitioned and food is left there for the grubs.
The series of pictures below show the wasp trying to figure out where her nest is (because the chair had been moved). We put the chair back the way it was and I got to watch her find the nest and continue her work on it.
We will leave the nest alone since this variety of wasp is beneficial to the yard.

Well, we've certainly have had a lot of troublesome wasps all summer long +Willie Scott. The fact that it was flying around with a blade of grass made me curious since the troublemakers don't do that. The either make paper nests or they find spaces in our house or deck.

A great tutorial for making your own Photoshop Styles!
Make you own from scratch or modify the ones already in Photoshop!

This is a great tool for giving personality to fonts and art.

Another Mentorship is on the way!!
How Do You See? 2nd time around!

Over the last 4 or so years I have been a member of several of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers programs both as a mentee and also as a helper/cheerleader. These programs are one of the reasons I’ve grown so much as a photographer and also met so many amazing people who I call friends.

It’s my turn to Pay It Forward! I will be leading my very own mentorship program based around one of the questions I have been asked the most over my photographic life; “How did you see that?”

Intrigued?

The sign ups will begin Friday, August 12th around 7:00am CST and end Tuesday, August 17th at 9:00pm CST right here on my profile and will explain a little more about what the program will be about!

This is the 2nd time I'm offering this!

Sydney Harbour from my hotel window
(best seen large)

Second in a new series of photoart. I'm using old jpgs from my travels and scanned bit of objects and papers I've saved.

My personal challenge here is to make three or so photoart works that are similar to each other. Since I rarely make anything similar to anything I've done, I wanted to see what it was like just to try it.
In this series I'll be featuring views from my hotel (or plane or boat or whatever).
I am giving each a type of scrapbook page look.

Computer Problem Fixed!
I'm having a strange problem connecting online. I can get to G+ but not facebook. I can google something like "cats" and get the normal hits. I cannot access my mail or seem to be able to use my bookmarks -- it's acting like it's just timing out.
Any recommendations on how to attempt to diagnose and fix this?

#joinindaily  The theme created by +Johnny Wills and currently sub-hosted by +Marsha Leigh.
Today's theme is Tiny with the caveat that it can be an image that makes something seem small despite the real life size. So here is a bunch of Tiny +Brian Lihani s!

I'd love to have this street art in my yard +Jim Migliore! I'd move it around to get different views. Oh man! I was just thinking that I might be able artistically reproduce this! It just hit me!

St. Thomas Harbor Virgin Island as seen from above
(best viewed large)

Third in a series of digital scrapbook pages with the theme of travel.
In order to grow, we must continually challenge ourselves.
My challenge here was to make a series -- something that I've never done. I wanted to use only my own digital elements: old jpgs, scanned souvenirs, and papers (created, or purchased and then greatly altered). Each photo I've used is from a high vantage point. I also add a personal observation for each piece; an emotion that describes my first thought when seeing the view.

New York City from my hotel window
(best seen large)

I'm starting a new artistic series of photoart using old jpgs from my travels. I incorporated photos (and bits I scanned in one of my husband's old scrapbooks). This was my first in the series.

My personal challenge here is to make three or so photoart works that are similar to each other. In this series I'll be featuring views from my hotel (or plane or boat or whatever window).
I am giving each a type of scrapbook page look.

Story
Tagline
I'm here to listen, to talk, to be inspired by you. I love digital art and digital photography.
Introduction
I'm here because I enjoy seeing new points of view and learning about  most anything. I am interested in how people express themselves through words, art, and photography
I love a little bit of everything - perhaps too eclectic for my own good.

No one who knows me would call me shy but I am an introvert. For every hour around people I seem to need three hours to recharge. 
I think this is because I don't take people lightly. I find myself trying very hard to see, really see where a person is coming from. What I've discovered though, is how difficult I've made it for myself to really share myself. That's one of the reasons I signed onto G+ ... a place where I hope that after decades of really seeing other people, that some will see me in return. 


Bragging rights
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain.

I live for Artistic Expression... yours or mine, the creative force is the center of everything.
