while in line at the grocery check-out a couple weeks ago, i saw this pretty bunch of tulips on sale for a couple bux, so i got 'em, and before they totally died, had to break out the lensBABY and make some frames.....
making my way back to my car after shooting golf, and i was struck by how the roots of the very old stately trees had come up out of the ground and woven themselves over the base of the trunk, and the texture of the lichen growing...just liked the feel of it...and it suddenly reminded me of when i was six, and my first grade teacher (whom i loved - Mrs. Beavers) held her own little workshop over the summer break - she took us to the museum, introduced us to her neighbor and his big boa constrictor pet that he told us all about and let us touch, and one day we went to the park, where she told us that the green stuff growing on the trees was called "lichen" and we got to make our own little glass bottle dioramas (or whatever those things are called) of 'foresty stuff" - strange how the mind works - one day you learn what lichen is, and over 30 some years later, suddenly your mind goes right back there....a good memory

the art of feature hunting - get in car, point said vehicle in some direction, drive around in big squares until you find somebody doing something....found this one one day, and the one below it the next
So, to end on one of my favorite notes, the bus ride was kind - not only did i shoot the assignment and get some contenders for the photo page, i found a still life - just love all these faces! everyone is looking off in their own direction, and miraculously none of them are looking at me!
