Occasionally winter snows at the higher elevations
of the Santa Catalina Mountains reach down to the 
lower front range creating a dramatic scene as the
sun becomes a spotlight through breaks in the storm
clouds, showcasing the many contrasting acts
on nature’s 
ever-changing stage.

My Take — Outdoor Sculptures At The J.Paul Getty Museum   1 comment

This sculpture by Robert Adams at the J. Paul Getty Museum is in some of several garden areas, this one overlooking Los Angeles. As I often do with some of my images, I used Photoshop to do my take on the image taken around Thanksgiving, 2011. — kenne

“My Take” — image by kenne

The J. Paul Getty Museum has graced its beautiful campus with a diverse collection of outdoor sculpture art. This image contains two such works. The one in the foreground is Robert Adams’ “Two.” In the background to the left of Two is Mark di Suvero’s “Gandydancer’s Dream.”  Each is beautifully placed in the garden’s area of the Getty Museum, providing a view of parts of Los Angeles. Each sculpture represents a dramatic work of art, yet each left me wondering about its symbolism. My image is an attempt to express my take on the art and its location.

My Tree Of Life   Leave a comment

Sunset On The Trails & Sabino CanyonMy Tree of Life — Image by kenne

Such a beautiful tree — 
So representative of life. 
Yet, we often see beauty only
in the foliage and blossoms
nature provides in life’s stages. 

Why?

Beauty is everywhere –
There is beauty in death, 
marking the stage so important 
in the cycles of life.

This tree (image of) is amazing, 
a sculpture in the face of the sun,
containing the shapes we use
to design our places in this world.

The image tells the truth
without endless detail
of what it would take
to have been created.

What image do you present 
in the face of the sun?
Does it add?
Does it subtract?

Be honest!

Like each tree image
the story we tell
of the image we present
is always different.

When Given A Gift, The Only Appropriate Response Is Gratefulness   Leave a comment

For several hours yesterday, “Kenne’s Wi-Fi” was down thanks to our Internet provider, Comcast. There were problems with the Xfinity modem that I connect to “Kenne’s Airport Time Capsule which provides the wifi in our home and stores my digital world. The outage reminded me of how grateful I am of all the X’s and O’s that allow me to share our world — Life is a gift. I have posted several entries on “gifting” over the years. This is one that I frequently return to that includes a TED Talk by Louie Schwartzberg gratitude and some of his beautiful time-lapse photography illustrating the stunning beauty of nature. — kenne

When given a gift, the only appropriate response is gratefulness. Life is a gift.  Each day is filled with blessings — just by our presence we are able to express our gratitude.

I’m grateful I can spend time in nature capturing its many beautiful moments. Still, for many it is easy to miss the beauty of nature. Many do not have the opportunity to spend time out in nature. However, through the time-lapse photography of Louie Schwartzberg’s we can experience the stunning beauty of nature. (See Moving Art by Louie Schwartzberg)

Louie Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades providing breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials.

The following video is a TEDx San Fransisco presentation, which includes his short film on Gratitude and Happiness, reminding us of…

The Pelican
By Ogden Nash

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican.

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican.
