Photo Challenge: Muse

Thought I’d best get a post up – to carry on with the once monthly schedule that I seem to be on right now. Afraid I’m having trouble getting words on the page, but that hasn’t stopped me from taking photos. I am always drawn to the beauty of nature, and even the limited selection in my own garden keeps me busy. Here are some shots taken during the month of June.

Edge of the Forest

Edge of the Forest” is a juried textile exhibition featuring work by 53 Canadian members of the Surface Design Association. Several of my friends have work in the show, and my entry was accepted as well. The exhibition opened in Ontario, where it will show in three venues before it moves on to Newfoundland, Alberta and British Columbia. Very exciting stuff! The show opened in March at the Richmond Hill Center for the Peforming Arts. Here are a couple of photos from the show taken by my good friend, Pam, who was able to attend, and a shot of my work.

Blur! I lost my focus.

Usually when I take photos that are blurry, I tend to delete them once I see them on my computer screen. Sometimes I just can’t do it. Last year I had the pleasure of seeing Santana and Rod Stewart in concert. It was a spectacular performance, and I tried to capture a little of the magic. The music was terrific, but I was equally impressed by the staging, sets and lighting. As a quilter, I was quite beside myself when the quilt-like images started appearing in lights. They were changing rapidly and I only wish I’d had a camera capable of capturing their every detail. Instead I have blurry photos to remind me of the evening. I’m pleased to show them to you as part of the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.yellow, orange and red lights blue/green light pattern Rod Stewart Santana pink and red light pattern yellow and red lights

weekly photo challenge: ephemeral

I thought I should jump back into the photo challenge, since I’ve neglected my blog again. Can I help it if there aren’t enough hours in the day? I think nature offers the most striking examples of ephemeral. I wanted to include a fantastic sunset, but they tend to disappear before I can get my camera organized!clouds clouds icicles icicles
