Standing in the Purpose

I found this fascinating sculpture, with camera in tow, a few years back. I like making names for my ‘discoveries’, hoping my newly created titles don’t clash too much with the ones given by the discovery’s actual creators. I, unfortunately don’t have this one’s real name! This bronze(?) creation of hulking giants shifting, pulling, twisting…

The Trumpeter of Dreams

More CAA show awesomeness! Alas, I do not know either the name of the artist responsible for this fantastic work, or the name he or she has originally bestowed upon said creation… Therefore, I have taken to calling him ‘The Trumpeter’ for all the obvious reasons. One look into his eyes though, and I got…

The Beautiful Artwork of Carol Holtzman Fregoso

Easily, I recall seeing this piece of artwork at a ceramics show earlier this year. I didn’t have to think about it too much, whether or not I liked it. The power and beauty emanating from it all but forced me to stop and consider it from all angles. Yes, I liked it then and…

I’m Trying Not to Smile!

It was fascinating to watch, this young lady trying so hard to maintain some semblance of composure as her photographer took shot after shot of her framed by a canopy of cherry blossoms. She appeared to be directing the guy with the camera pointed at her, asking him to let her do ‘just one more’.…

Anime Warrioress!

Another from the recent Cherry Blossom Parade! I almost didn’t ask this young lady for a picture. I figured the long parade route probably had taken it all out of her. I did though, ask her for a photo, and she was extremely kind in posing for this shot. As you can tell, it’s been…

Down in the Sea of Me

I say it all the time, I never tire of visiting the sea. There is no better medicine for curing what ails me than a trip to the water. And when the seas look like they do in this picture, when I get to hear the cacophonous sounds created by massive waves pounding into the…

It’s The End of Mankind, But I Hope Not!

So, I got asked by my buddy Noh the other day why I reblogged the ‘Mankind’s Tombstone’ post. He thought it felt really dire(his word) and apocalyptic. I had to explain to him that while, yes, it does feel like both of those things, dire and apocalyptic, I also felt and still feel hopeful because…

Anime Character Quartet

During the parade, I literally turned to say something to a friend sitting next to me and these four awesome creations kind of just happened!  Thankfully, I didn’t forget to raise the Nikon! K.L. © 2014

The Flute Player

…Another picture from my recent visit to The Cherry Blossom Festival. It is also another example of how much I like to observe first, and shoot the photo only when I feel I understand what I am looking at! This flute player was beautiful,enchanting and elegant  in that she moved with such sureness, precision, and…

I Observe You

I observe you, and by observing, see a little deeper into me. I see into me, and in seeing, find you waiting patiently, to take my hand, leading the way to freedom, across the jagged path of my unruly consciousness. I trust what you see in me, for what you see are all the things…
