Wanda's Guardian Angel

Broken record: I can't recall whether I've posted this before.  I think perhaps I posted it on FB.  In either case, this photo captures a little figurine in front of our piano teacher's porch.  (The statue is less than a foot tall, I'd guess.)  The little angel's face is so serene and soulful, I can't help but be drawn to it.   And, yes, I did position the leaf in the background.

Shadow Angels

At the Chiaha Festival last fall, one of the booths featured little homemade angels.  I noticed that they were casting a shadow on the booth tent, so I ran back to my own booth and got out my camera.  But by the time I returned the angel of the light had shifted and angels were less prominently and clearly silhouetted.  A shame.  This is taken from outside the tent.

North Carolina Stingy Creature

A yellowjacket? A bee? What is it?

North Carolina autumn

For the first couple of years of this blog--perhaps longer--I was committed to the ethic that no photo can be in any way doctored.  And then for reasons that escape me now I become committed to the ethic that it's not  art unless I do doctor it.  Both views?  Silly.  In any event, this photo is untouched.  A beautiful warm day in late fall North Carolina.

Toothpicks and jack-o-lantern.

Flushed away

Yep.  Another in my series of commode pics.    That afternoon light hits the water perfectly.  It's not my fault porcelain  light and water is so beautiful.   (I don't think I've posted this before.  If I have, let me know.)


I'm having a tough time remembering how I captured these shots.  My best guess:  my kids have a strange glow bulb that turns colors and has a strobe effect as well.  I believe I put it under an ordinary drinking glass and took photos as it changed colors.  Here I made a composite from the four shots.

Don't mean nuthin'.  Just pretty colors.

What you gots here is spiders.
