The word for today is curves and I love the way this lily naturally curves and bends. This was part of a clump of lilies I spotted on Ocracoke once. I applied some subtle layering with PSE and adjusted the lighting. Enjoy!

I seem to have a thing for cameras. I can remember that when I was about eight I thought I would be a great salesperson and started selling flower seed packets. The only reason I did this was to be able to sell enough to get a Kodak camera. Thanks to my mother and grandmother buying most (all) of the seeds I did get the camera. I wasn't very good but I was prolific. I still have pictures today that I took that hold wonderful memories of people and places. So...thanks Mom and Mema!

So I jumped on the bandwagon and am making a real effort to publish a photo a day. The folks at shuttersisters.com are sponsoring Elevate the Everyday with one word prompts for the month of August.
Day 1 - Morning Rituals
Day 1 - Morning Rituals
Pretty much describes the beginning of everyday for me.
Day 2 - Your favorite space
I love any beach anywhere, but Ocracoke Island may be one of my top five. Here is where I fell in love with my husband and where one can fall in love with the memories of an era from long ago. Ferries are the only way to reach the island outside of private planes. Once there we mostly get around on foot or bicycle. Life slows to a gentle pace.

I thought it could not have been more appropriate that today's color is red in our Beyond Layers class. These may be the coolest men ever. I snapped this while attending our city's Fourth Friday Arts event downtown this evening. There were maybe a hundred guys teetering around in heels of all kinds. All of this was to promote the event A Walk in her Shoes....men against sexual violence against women. You go guys!

Winter comes and I seem to go into the woodwork. Anyway just wanted to encourage any that might be interested to check out Susan Tuttle's workshop on Toy Camera Digital Workshop. I have taken a class with her before and she is such a generous teacher! Here is one piece I have been working on lately. I think the composition needs tweaking but I like the direction in which it is going.
