Two views

We spend a lot of time defending our point of view as being the only right way. But here in these pictures of the same stump, both viewpoints and composition seem "right".
Same stump, different angle.

Realizing that there is more than one right way of seeing things helps. I can turn my work around and decide what viewpoint I want to show the world and know that although there are several options, the one I chose is just as right as the one I did not choose.

The decision lies in choosing the one viewpoint most people would never think of. Therein lies the key to innovation and unique creative thought. Starting here, with these two stumps, if I went back and shot several more of the same subject, I would eventually transcend the object to a new and different viewpoint to share.

This is the concept behind doing a series. It may be my time to explore this avenue in my work. I have known about this, but never felt compelled to explore it. Now just may be that time.

Cleaning up my act

Rainbow marriage, rights for all
Yikes, my blog has undergone change! Yes, I'm not happy, but life is change right? It's spring and I'm undergoing a lot of change, so why not my blog too?
This is the result of the background of my blog disappearing. What happened to it? IDK Recent blog updates created havoc.
I could get used to this cleaner look though. It's not bad.
My work may even show up better! I hope so.
Gotta go to work now.
Enjoy your day.

A month later!

Dinner out with quilting friends
"My daughter is graduating from High School this year."
I hear myself saying this a lot these days. What does it mean? Well, I could call it an excuse for my neglectful behavior on things I should be keeping up with.
But I also think it is the mantra I use to convince myself that I will be okay through this transition.

 I find the comfort of hanging around with quilting friends a good remedy.
