Hope peaks out like a sun behind a total eclipse.
Paint the sky with my dreams, let my thoughts manifest my desires.
Reflect on my emotions.
Excitement and anticipation come as I think of the possibilities.
With reflection come the snaking fear of doubt.
The snake curls around my roots,
Threatening to suffocate me.
Look ahead, take in the surrounds.
Sway right, sway left.
Feel the loosening of the snake.
Softly, shake off the fear.
A bright glow of golden rays blooms in my trunk.
Move my gaze past the darkness to the bright horizon.
A vibrating sensation moves through my branches.
My branches may take a beating but my roots, my core
will stay strong.
Whatever comes my way,
I am the tree of life.
Looking at the surreal sky, surrendering to the powerfulness of nature’s show above me.
A cold afternoon, the winter barn stands tall. Against the roaring winds, and skeletal trees, it quietly stands strong against all odds.
Surrounded by a gently breeze, singing seagulls soaring high above the sea.
Watery bubbles floating and dancing around.
Without your guidance, I would be lost. Show me the way, so I do not stumble anymore, I am certain with your love, no matter how high and roughed the terrain will be; your guidance will help me though it all.
Nature’s paint brush criss-crossing in the sky. Breathtaking and romantic on a cold winter’s dusky night. My heart aches for the glowing sky. I surrender to it’s beauty.
iphone photography has totally changed everyone’s ability to take photos. It has given all of us a change to be that artistic genius whom we all know is inside of us! As a photographer, when I am looking upon a scene in my view finder, my mind is racing with all the possibility that when I take that shot, it will evoke all the drama, passion, artistic dreams that I had for that photo. Uncertainty hours later, when I am sitting in front of the computer, down loading my photos, I think, ” Wow, now that picture is just not as powerful or creative as I had hoped . ” Well, thank god for Photoshop to help create that artist photo that I wanted. Nevertheless, when I am in a rush or my back bothers me, and I don’t want to lug around my camera equipment; the iphone comes in handle, and it gives me wonderful results. I use much different photography apps to create the perfect vision that I was daydreaming about when taking the photo. My mom always taught me to share so I am sharing what I use, and I hope that you will share with me and the rest of us that use iPhone photography!
