AUTUMN GLORY

"Autumn Glory" was just fudged (a little bit) out of an old version of, yes, an even older pic. I love this color. I have fond memories of the trees in upper New York State (I'm from New York City and have only been living in CA 10 years) in full fall glory. When I was a kid my father would pack us (mother and two kids) into the car and take us on the most fabulous long fall drive to view the leaves. I have many other memories of looking out the train window (the tracks run alongside the Hudson River a great deal of the way north) as an adult traveling on my own, and ooohing and aaahing at the autumn trees. Yes, there are also reds and yellows and nearly deep maroon colors on fall trees. But the deep orange in this photo is the one that plucks at my heartstrings ... at some specific memory I've never quite recalled, only deeply feel.

RECIPROCITY

"Reciprocity" (10-13-10 10015v4a) was just ever so slightly fussed with (tiny bit of cropping and color work) from a very old version of an even older photo. I've always liked it and may have posted it here "back in the day." In any case, it's due for a sharing. It lifts my rather odd and tumultuous mood a wee bit just to look at it. (I've come up with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my right hand/wrist/arm, and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome -- similar malady -- in my left hand and forearm. Spent all morning reading up on the metaphysical and emotional underpinnings of these conditions. And, boy howdee, did that reading pin me! BTW, I'd already done masses of research on the physical conditions and their treatments, etc., yesterday. Today's reading, however, gave me more a sense of how all I've been going through for over a year now fits together. And gives me fits, if you'll pardon that bad pun.)

TAKING A STAND

"Taking A Stand" (2-15-17 005v9) was just lightly fussed from the several month old original pic. It's very close to the original (for a change :-D). A bit of cropping, some color work (for contrast mostly), and darkening the color in one very small spot to bring it out a little bit more. I've posted other, older versions of this same pic here months back. All "realistic," but very artsy in coloring and texture, some looking like night shots. However, I've always really liked the original and today for the first time I decided it was pretty much fine, as is. Despite that somewhat top heaviness due to the shadowy leaves on the tree. My feeling today: that the brightness of the sun streaked grass beneath balances that out. Well, maybe not. Nu? I like it anyway. BTW, it's ROSH HASHANAH (year 5778) in the Jewish tradition. May this new year bring health, happiness, peace, and prosperity to all.

IN THE CROSSHAIRS

"In the Crosshairs" (9-17-17 030v14a) was just fussed from a very new pic. In fact, from the one posted here yesterday. I find this twisty tree trunk pic and what can kinda, sorta be seen through it's vaguely circular shape, such fun to fool around with. I highly recommend viewing this pic in a larger version (just click on the image). It's a mix of sharp detail and a little bit of blurring. BTW, when I came to this title, I had quite a wry chuckle. I've been feeling "in the crosshairs" of someone/thing for a while now. Not necessarily a pleasant feeling, but what can one do about it? Hey, how's this for a thought: edit photos and write poetry and go for long walks.

STRUGGLING THROUGH

Have no idea whether this one ("Struggling Through" 9-17-17 030v2) works at all. I can only say I like it, probably because I've been feeling as twisty as those tree trunks ... just trying to make it through despite the storms and the pruning. Yeah, I know, life's hard. But I'm tired and old and in all sorts of physical and emotional pain. So, if someone doesn't wanna hear me bitch, well, don't read this blog. BTW, my critical eye is still (all too) active; therefore I do see a couple of issues with this pic. And I ain't gonna try any more than I already have to "fix" 'em. The pic is what it is.
