― Luther Burbank


Happy +FloralFriday Blossoms.  Play along with +Eustace James +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman and me and tag your #floralfriday  posts.  I've started a full time job, so I'm kind of a floral saturday commenter now, but I can't wait to see what our cyber garden looks like this week.  It's a Spring Thing!

Happy Friday!  Happy Weekend!  Happy Gardens, everywhere!

a little #monochromemonday   #monochromephotography  before I go to sleep because the new job has me waking up too damn early to post in the morning.

Have a beautiful week, Blossoms.

“You have as much laughter as you have faith.” 
― Martin Luther

PS for those of you following along at home, I took a job as the director of a tiny little annex school of littles and the Mr. took a supply chain job for a big company that will help him learn a lot.  Both of us were employed exactly 33 days after landing in Portland.  Now, we're looking for a home and our girl's will be with us soon.

So, in other words, we took a giant leap of faith and we stuck the landing.  ♥  I'm full of gratitude and awe.  And, I love being home in Portland again.

“Love.

Because of you, in gardens of blossoming
Flowers I ache from the perfumes of spring.
I have forgotten your face, I no longer
Remember your hands; how did your lips
Feel on mine?

Because of you, I love the white statues
Drowsing in the parks, the white statues that
Have neither voice nor sight.

I have forgotten your voice, your happy voice;
I have forgotten your eyes.

Like a flower to its perfume, I am bound to
My vague memory of you. I live with pain
That is like a wound; if you touch me, you will
Make to me an irreperable harm.

Your caresses enfold me, like climbing
Vines on melancholy walls.

I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to
Glimpse you in every window.

Because of you, the heady perfumes of
Summer pain me; because of you, I again
Seek out the signs that precipitate desires:
Shooting stars, falling objects.” 
― Pablo Neruda

Analog girl in a digital world.
Introduction
 I am a photographer because it is in my blood and bones to want to make this art.  I photograph anything that captures my fancy.  Most of my work on here ends up being pieces and components to my Fine Art prints.  I shoot digitally and print in the 19th century Alternative Processes.  I like that crazy mix of old and new.  It just does it for me.
