Kate Caught In The Tide (1 of 1) blogFacebook Image

A few postings back, I posted the above photo, which I took off Facebook, of daughter Kate alone the Del Mar, California shore. I did a little Photoshop work on the photo, but wasn’t pleased — still I posted it because I like the captured image of Kate.

Later, I ask Kate if she could send me the original, which she did — much better, containing more pixels than the one I got off Facebook. I know Kate uses filters on many photos she shares on Facebook and she may have in this case — I didn’t ask.

It’s so easy to capture the moment, but often the user is thinking about sharing the moment rather than taking a quality photograph to share. Once a quality photo is captured, which Kate’s friend did, then you can use filters and third-party camera apps to share quality images you have captured.

At the end of the day, it is important to remember that whatever camera you may use to capture the moment, the best camera is always the one you have with you. So, think taking good photographs and not snapshots.

Deciphering Visible And Hidden Meanings.   1 comment

Thanksgiving 2012 OceansideBride & Bridesmaids On Oceanside Pier — Image by kenne

Some may call me a photographer,
having an eye for the moment
always looking for the duende.

Catching the edge of life
creating a visual narrative
of what was, what is and will be.

Every moment I capture
starts a journey from
what I found to what found me.

Many layers blending together
shaping a visual attitude
as of my mind’s eye —

Poetry without words,
an expression of existence
in life’s fleeting moments.

Looking for photos within a photo
Catching what others see
Through their camera’s eye.

Having a camera is not
a photographer to be
without being drunk with life —

A passion to do something
without knowing what or why,
making the invisible, visible.

Forming a communication circuit
laminating a soulful spirit
linking an image with viewer —

As with Klee’s quirky angels
where we try deciphering
visible and hidden meanings.

Something New, Something Old — Having Survived Floods, Drought and Fire   1 comment

We are alone with thoughts, but those thoughts include others who have become part of our being as we meet new traveling companions each day. Here I’m moved to thought as David shares his knowledge of a sacred land at the river edge of Tanuri Ridge. Now I remember his words, many of them, but I add my own words, telling of what I heard, also showing what I did with what  I heard. For you see, I have learned that my camera is an instrument that has taught me how to see without a camera.
