23.01.15 - Shadows and Lines  Another collage from my guided photo walk on Thursday evening. Just a week left of my seventh year on the Dailies. Having the usual internal debate as to whether to continue into an 8th year or not. It can be a chore and I feel bad that I don't get to comment as much as I used to, but it is also a good discipline to keep up. Trying to make a living from my photography has also grown increasingly tough over the last year. Fewer and fewer people are willing to pay for photos. Individuals think they can do their own, and many have more expensive cameras than the pros, just not a clue how to use them. Businesses and media outlets get more images for free as amateurs are happy to donate them and get their moment of fame from a published photo. The photographers that make money tend to be those willing to market themselves in a quirky way, smoke and mirrors, image over content, no pun intended, and I've never been into marketing or branding. There are still a lot of creative people and projects out there, just no funding. So how long does the struggle continue, watch this space.....
January 9/15  Looking for spring.  It's very cold here in Alberta and I so wish spring would come.
If only I were red and yellow  This feather was in the hotel where we had class in San Miguel.  I textured it, cropped a bit and then got the colors I like in Topaz.

Saturday, January 24, 2015  "BRANCHED"   “God finds a low branch for the bird that cannot fly.” ~ Turkish Proverb  INQUIRY at 10:20 AM - I am wondering if the Daily Photos page is frozen/stuck? My photo has been in the #2 spot since I posted it and there are other photos with more comments.. I also noticed that several others photos have not moved.  As we were leaving Fountain Park, I noticed this low-lying branch of clustered leaves and how their color contrasted well against that beautiful "Valley of the Sun" blue sky. It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect! My hubby and I noticed that the sky appeared much darker in this photo than in the previous ones taken in the same general locale......and no, I didn't change the settings. I think it was explained (and may apply here, I'm assuming) by Elizabeth (aka arctangent) in her comment regarding my daily photo on Thursday, September 25, 2014.  Thanks for taking the time to view, comment, and/or "thumbs up" my photos.   Have a great weekend!  Fountain Park 12925 N.

January 24 2015 View from the St Louis Arch Since I stopped posting last August I thought I would return with a few shots from then until now.  That way you can see what we've been up to during my six month absence.  And I can showcase stuff that I would have posted if I'd been active.  Thanks for the warm welcome.  I wasn't actually planning to start posting again but your kind words changed my mind.

Strawberry Bliss  Jan 23 I posted this to the Good Camera group on FB earlier this week so I thought I would share with my fellow smuggers! I was making a snack that turned into a photo op!
1/23/2015. Winter Thaw. Yesterday in the park was such a beautiful sunny day in the upper 50's; very unusual for January. The ice was thin and crackly and the sunlight created that nugget effect, and the original was a silvery winter cold, so I warmed it up with gold compliments of PS. Thank you for your views/comments!! Karen
November 2...  Last hip of the year. We have picked several bags of them and turned them into 20 jars of marmalade.  We also often  had dog soup on the table. The Latin name is Rosa Rogusa and only birds eat the raw fruit. They have beautiful red or white flowers during the summer. An example can be seen in a previous posted picture : http://refslund.smugmug.com/Landscapes-and-people-1/Refslunds-Images/11497382_SMW9DB#1062797355_H53DH
