Sometimes Life is Crooked

I could have straightened this photo. But I like it crooked because it tells an unintentional story.  We had spent part of the afternoon with a wonderfully talented photographer on the North Shore of Oahu.  We had planned to have her do a 25th Anniversary shoot with us.

As soon as our meeting was over, Tim and I headed south to Papa'iloa Beach, where some of the LOST television show's beach scenes were shot.

We arrived slightly before sunset.  There was only a very narrow alley leading to the beach and from where we parked, you couldn't see the beach at all.  We jumped out of the car and raced down that alley.  When we spilled out onto the beach, it was an amazing view.  LOST.  We could envision the crashed plane on the beach.  We recalled the dazed, confused expressions on the characters' faces as they came to terms with their reality.

Do not Squander Time

My mother had a stroke - a debilitating, forever life-altering stroke.  Left without the ability to swallow, speak, completely unresponsive on one side of her body, she is now living her worst nightmare.

On the Move

Monday, September 27, 2010:

We received a call that my father-in-law can no longer stay in the independent living facility he moved into just one year ago.   His dementia has progressed and is affecting his mobility so that he is no longer safe without additional assistance.

In the Mood

Once upon a time, in a photography class at Northwestern College in Naperville, IL, we were asked what we liked to photograph.  Going around the room, each student was to share their name along with our particular photographic interest.  "Landscapes.......people......animals........nature......." Then it was my turn.

I took a deep breath and said, "Feeling.  I want to be able to capture the feeling of the moment."  There was a long pause and our professor said, "That's the most elusive quality of all to capture....."
