5 Things

(bad phone camera shot - remember to take the good camera with you)


1. This is not a great shot but that's sort of my point. The trees are GORGEOUS now. There are about 5-7 days a year when they are like this. SO, step away from the computer, grab your camera (so you don't have to resort to using your phone camera on the fly like I did) and get out there and enjoy the COLOR.

2. Improv Everywhere is so much fun. Watch the Grocery Store Musical all the way to the end, I love the guy who says, "What just happened. They did a musical - they turned life into a musical!"

3. Connie over at Dirty Footprints Studio is doing a week of art journal love. I especially liked "Dreaming of Modigliani" but you'll want to check them all out. You can feel her joy leap out at you from across the computer screen!

4. Chema Madoz's surrealistic photography is beautiful, brilliant and thought provoking - see several of his works here at haha.nu.

5. I'm reading Thinkertoys: A Handbook of Creative Thinking Techniques by Michael Michalko. It's a "business" creative book and that's usually not my thing but I'm finding so many really useful and interesting techniques that can apply to almost any situation.

Great 5 things!!! I fell totally in love with Connie's video on Modigliani...shared it on my blog yesterday and others fell in love with it too. Some even learned about Modigliani, but I think more than that, they absorbed Connie's infectious spirit and her beautiful art.

And hear hear...any camera will do when there is something beautiful to capture...the "blaze" is gone from the trees around here but I was snapping yesterday on a dull, somewhat rainy day and came home to fall in love with what I snapped...I just loved the way the colours came out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Those dull overcast days can be great for photography.
