Violin Girl: Field Day

There once was a girl who played the violin. One day she went to the field late in the afternoon, with her violin, for a little bit of country fiddlin' thing.

Sometimes, even serious musicians behave a little badly.

"Bow or Arrow?"

"The Backhand."

With that, let's welcome spring and bring back the sun!!

The Best Camera

I continue to be amazed at how good these tiny smart phone cameras are, given how tiny they are. Are they going to replace my big cameras? Of course not. However, when the Kodak moment presented itself, the "Oh, I wish I had a camera with me!" was quickly followed by "Duh, I do have a camera with me." Jarvis has this trade-marked, I think, "The best camera is the one that's with you." Couldn't agree more. (all images taken with iPhone 3Gs or 4).

It Excites Me So

I believe it was Edward Weston who said, "Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual."

Perhaps a magical sunset. Or a foggy morning where objects are reduced to simple shape and form. Those "Oh, I wish I had my camera with me!" moments.

One day at breakfast I noticed the African Violets blooming quite nicely. I had to grab my camera to make a few frames. Ahh... such simple pleasures.
