As the mom of twins born early who both spent a lot of time in the NICU, I can relate all too well. 24 weeks is very very early, and a severely premature infant will continue to have weak lung function for years after birth as the lungs work to heal. To have contracted RSV and have to be placed on ECMO is life threatening. And beyond scary. Please, if you can't donate, please share.

(Just to give you an idea of the medical expense of having a child in the NICU, when my babies were born their births cost $163,000 and $180,000. Just for the birth of each child, NOT including daily expenses accrued from an extended NICU stay. We were extremely blessed to have insurance that covered those costs, but not all parents are so fortunate. I do not know what the cost of having a child on ECMO is, but being that it's a very intense and 24/7 treatment until it's no longer needed, I would assume the cost is astronomical. And it's not the only treatment this little guy will need.)
 
Hi everyone, This is my friends nephew. He was born at 24 weeks and suffers from breathing, heart, developmental, digestive, and vision problems. He recently came down with a version of RSV that has put him in the hospital with the most critical medical case in Utah and several surrounding states. It has been very scary, Yet he is still fighting to live! Please donate or share this to help him continue his fight and assist with medical expenses and therapies because his insurance only goes so far and he NEEDS it! Thank you for your help and prayers! #irastrong‬
Let me introduce you to my strong nephew Ira. Ira was born at 24 weeks at 1lb. 10 oz being born this prematurely brings with it a number of different challenges some of which are: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) (requires Ira to be on oxygen 24/7), pulmonary hypertension, developmental challeng...

+Angelika Perry apparently he had cancer. What is really eerie is that he died of the same thing, at the same age and within the same week as David Bowie. :(

Tutulemma: Solar Eclipse Analemma 
If you went outside at exactly the same time every day and took a picture that included the Sun, how would the Sun's position change? With great planning and effort, such a series of images can be taken. The figure-8 path the Sun follows over the course of a year is called an analemma. 

Analemmas created from different latitudes would appear at least slightly different, as well as analemmas created at a different time each day. With even greater planning and effort, the series can include a total eclipse of the Sun as one of the images.

Pictured is such a total solar eclipse analemma or Tutulemma - a term coined by the photographers based on the Turkish word for eclipse. The bellow composite image sequence was recorded from Turkey starting in 2005. The base image for the sequence is from the total phase of a solar eclipse as viewed from Side, Turkey on 2006 March 29. Venus was also visible during totality, toward the lower right.

Just a reminder, I will be closing my Etsy shop at the end of the day on January 15th and won't reopen until September. So if you've been on the fence about ordering something, be sure to hop in before it's too late!

I will continue to post on my fb page (https://m.facebook.com/Heathers-Homespun-152398851474379/?ref=bookmarks) about my new HIGHLIGHT of the MONTH, and new projects I'm working on to stock in September.

Wishing you all a very blessed 2016! <3

A Clearing Storm by Starlight

Every storm has to end eventually, of course. But sometimes the timing seems less than ideal. I thought that on Sunday, when it kept snowing in Yosemite Valley all afternoon, and for several hours past sunset. But when the snow finally stopped I was able to photograph the clearing storm by starlight. This photograph shows Three Brothers, the Merced River, and Yosemite Point, all illuminated by the stars, with some help from the distant light of Yosemite Village.

I've posted another photograph from Sunday night on my blog, along with the full story of that beautiful night:

LOVE  this!!! <3
 
We've all heard of Ansel Adams. His iconic images adorn walls all across the world. But, did you know that he helped create a national park? And that he was slated to be a pianist and pursued it passionately as a career? And that he was criticized by many for "photographing rocks while the world was falling apar


His response to critics of his work was that "the understanding of the ... world of nature will aid in holding the world of man together." Now just imagine for one second that he had listened to his critics and let them direct his path in life? Hard to imagine this world without the work of Ansel Adams. The lesson: Don't listen to your critics. Instead, let them move you closer to your work.

Just a little reminder....

I will be closing my Etsy shop for the season starting end of day January 15th and won't reopen until September. Spring and summer are the slowest time of year for me, so a temporary closure will give me more time to concentrate on getting more items completed for Autumn and Winter stock.

Although I will be technically closed, I will be reachable through my shop "contact" page, so if you have a question please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm happy to answer any questions you may have despite the closure. :)

I hope you all had a beautiful Holiday season, however you chose to celebrate it, and wish you many blessings in 2016!

It's our first Grid episode of the new year and RC and I are talking about "New Years Resolutions for Making Better Images in 2016." If you're looking for something to jumpstart your photographic year, we're on at 4pm live this afternoon, and we're taking your questions, and suggestions. http://kelbytv.com/thegrid (can you please share this?). Many thanks and see you at 4.

Surprise, surprise!

We went in today for a surgery consult to have Jack's tube removed and surgically closed and our wonderful surgeon (who also removed Jack's spleen back in May) opted to remove it on the spot! He also let me be the one to pull it, which was WONDERFUL closure! Doing the Happy Dance on Cloud Nine today!

We are officially TUBE-FREE!!!!!!!!
