Baltimore Tunes

These photos were taken in 2009 at a friend’s live gig in Baltimore. He had no idea a few close friends would be in the front row at his show!

This was my previous camera – a little red digital one that travelled around the world with me. And my last camera before investing in a fancy shmancy DSLR. Not too shabby.

Darling Harbour

Taken in 2014 for a FotoRiesel photography competition in Sydney.

Photo itself pictures the Sydney skyline and Darling Harbour – the Wildlife Museum and Madame Tussaud’s. Background is viewed through the cross-hatches of a footbridge.

Furious

In some regards, America infuriates me. More than that, western style media has a lot of explaining to do.

When even the slim, healthy, strong women lack the confidence they deserve to feel, I move to detest our media. Even those who found their own drum to walk to – even these men and women are part of the equation.

A friend and I were out swimsuit shopping Friday afternoon and found ourselves both contemplative and furious with the state of self-esteem of the youngest generation.

I look at my nieces and nephew with hope and love that they know they can choose their emotions and opinions. They can decide whose company to place themselves in. They can read and listen and learn and love the world if they so choose. As an aunt, I plan to do all I can to show them these things. And to make sure they never doubt the love I have for them and the beauty they exude.

We owe this to our children.

Photoshop

My first serious foray into Photoshop and Lightroom after years with Mac’s photo editing software. Take a peak at the first grouping if you so choose.
Quite pleased with where I am.  🙂

Art Shopping

The gold piece, with the hand transforming into a tree–I’m seriously considering buying it for our home.

The photo is mine. The art pictured is that of a group of talented individuals in Sydney, in a group exhibition.

The question (and a piece of my hesitation) is how to frame or hang a triangular piece, especially one whose bottom is a point.

Thoughts?
