Old Barn

 

I loved photographing this beautiful barn.  I didn’t dare go inside – fear of rats, nails, and sudden collapse.

Funhouse Self-Portrait

Me in a nutshell.  A little quirky, a little bohemian, a little tripped out.  And always a photographer.

I am a traveling doctor and I have a new job for a few months, in Fargo, North Dakota.  Brr.  Everyone is really nice here, and the facilities are awesome.  In the center of the hospital is an atrium that goes all the way up to the top floor, which is where I work.  The first time I leaned over to look, I got dizzy.  My next thought:  I gotta get a picture of that!  Then I thought:  I will probably drop my phone over the edge!  It took me two days to work up the nerve to take the pic, clutching the phone with both shaking hands, visions of the phone falling six stories and smashing into a patient at the bottom.  Good thing the phone had vision stabilization.

Nothing much warmer than a hothouse full of orchids.  One of my husband’s memories from his dad:  he inherited an orchid and that started our collection.  This bloom arrived in time for my daughter’s ninth birthday.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone But Not Forgotten

Dawn Brancheau

Dawn Brancheau and the Whale

I took this picture during a family visit to Sea World.  Not long after our trip, I learned that Dawn was killed by the Orca Tilikum, who had attacked and drowned at least one other person.  I also learned that her family begged that the whale be spared because that is what their daughter would have wanted.  The joy on her face is so haunting; she was doing the one thing in the world that she truly loved.  Yet later, one of those whales would seize her by her ponytail and drag her around under the water until she drowned.  I can scarcely think of a more terrifying way to die.  I am amazed at the grace that her family showed; the whale was spared and now lives in a private area of the park.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

I caught my daughter playing a statue while we were in Sydney Australia.  I realized that a reverse photo where my daughter’s backlit shape cut into the colorful outdoor background would be a neat shot to try.
