Some nice shots of what is to become art in the future…

I have some photos of things that inspired me over the course of the past week…or2…or 3… I can only hope that what I see in my head translates well through my hands and fingers! Anyway, I’d like to share these photos with you. I’m still not mentally ready to begin the last canvas for Mask series #8 but I’m getting there. There’s just too much going on right now and I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to work as quickly or be as focused as I feel I’ll need to be. I’m probably thinking too much…but I really do want to be able to work without too many deadlines and activities fluttering around in my head. As soon as we are done with the play, I plan to start the work and we’ll see what we will see!

This is a close-up photo of my headphones. There's a whole story behind these. I'm not really a 'blingy' sort of gal but this is dark bling...with spikes. Yeah, that's more like me. This is a close-up photo of my headphones. There’s a whole…

Day 258 of my 365 Project

This evening, the director of the play we are involved with wanted pictures. She is going to do an article for the local paper about how the community theater is a family affair. My whole family, five of us, are involved in the play. Three of the actors in the play has/had family members involved with the play. After the picture, my in-laws and family went to get a bite to eat in town. We noticed the clouds were building quite nicely so I grabbed a few shots in town. After eating, I checked the radar and the storms had dissipated. No storm spotting this evening. Maybe tomorrow since there isn’t a performance. I can only hope.

Day 257 of my 365 Project

This afternoon, my wife, my “adopted” son, and myself were sitting outside enjoying the exceptional weather we have down here in southern Louisiana. I grabbed my 75-300mm lens and sat in my chair to get shots. One of the firepits we use is full of water. I looked down at it and saw this frog. I missed the first chance to get pictures. I kept watching and it finally popped it’s head up again. I got a few shots before it swam away again. It was a very cool to see it.

This afternoon, we had some really nice storms come through. My wife and I went out to see what was heading our way. This shot was taken when the storm got fairly close to us. It’s two shots merged together. There was lots of lightning but I wasn’t able to catch any. Maybe next time.

I caught this storm cell to the south of me yesterday afternoon before heading to opening night of the play my whole family is involved with. We didn’t get home until really late so I wasn’t able to post my picture. There is a decent chance of thunderstorms today, so I might get some shots before heading to the theater for the play. I sure hope so.

Day 253 of my 365 Project

Today, we had scattered showers in the area. I was looking outside to see if any had popped up around us and I noticed a couple of them. I grabbed a few shots and this was the best one I saw. The weather is suppose to get cooler soon. I can’t wait. The humidity and temperatures have been terrible.

Tonight is our last dress rehearsal for the play my whole family is involved with. Tomorrow night is opening night. We are ready to get this going and finished.

Some really good tunes this morning/afternoon/evening (depending on where you are in the world)…

I’m dragging. Seriously dragging. Emotionally and, most of all, physically. I need more sleep. I suppose I’ll get that when this production is done. The play is coming along nicely. We have one more dress rehearsal tonight and opening night is tomorrow! Come check out the Eunice Players Theater’s Production of “The Diary of Anne Frank” if you’re in the area. Oh…and bring your box of tissues! I’m definitely bringing mine. On with the tunes!

Day 252 of my 365 Project

I looked outside the window and noticed the sun wasn’t shining. I wasn’t sure what was going on so I grabbed my camera and went outside. The sun was behind a cloud shooting out sunrays. I grabbed a few shots. I love it when the sun is behind a cloud. It can be so breathtaking as it illuminates the cloud and sunrays are coming out the sides.
