Photo of the Day

Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Love:  PotD:  May 13, 2010

May 13, 2010: Two dried roses in front of a Moulin Rouge movie poster in my bedroom. Photoshopped for brightness, but the contrast and color is natural. Blurriness courtesy of constant sneezing.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” ~ Aaron Siskind.

Inspired by the 05-02-2010: 15:00 Lens project, I am going to start taking a photo of the day. I would prefer to be able to take photos at the exact same time every day, but no such luck I’m afraid, with an inconsistent work schedule.  So a photo of the day it will be.  It’ll fill in where my header photo is and I’ll see if I can’t make it do some mad-skills caption thing that won’t interfere with my block-quotes on the quotation of the day.

This post is kind of a test to see if my skills are mad enough.

    What a moment!! I love how you captured the light that is coming probably from some window on the right side mixing it with the passivity of the scene, plus the colours, it all turns into sensitivity and sensuality!! Loved it!!

something to think about

"You know, I don't know if you'll understand this or not, but sometimes, even when I'm feeling very low, I'll see some little thing that will somehow renew my faith. Something like that leaf, for instance - clinging to its tree despite wind and storm. You know, that makes me think that courage and tenacity are about the greatest values a man can have. Suddenly my old confidence is back and I know things aren't half as bad as I make them out to be. Suddenly I know that with the strength of his convictions a man can move mountains, and I can proceed with full confidence in the basic goodness of my fellow man. I know that now. I know it." ~ End of Act I in the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
