Quiet Buddha

Buddha, soft and quiet...meditate on the peacefulness. As if he is saying, "Come and be still with me."

More Fall

Beautiful Autumn weather continues. I cannot remember a longer or hotter summer than this one. I cannot remember a Fall that was more elegant and quiet and so long lastingly full of bright changing of leaves.

I ready myself for the deep quiet of winter...but not quite yet!

Photos Restored








These are all images I restored from scanned photos of my family. Mom, Dad, my Grandpa & Grandma Crowe (on my mothers side) and her sister Zita. What a great name!! Some of the images were easy and fun to work with...others I just simply did the best I could. I love them all!

How Do They Know?

I love morning glories. I see them on my drive to work; blues, pinks, purples. They make me feel happy when I see them. So, it was a wonderful surprise this morning to see what I thought was a wild vine in a clay pot on my front porch singing the vision of three beautiful glory blossoms with the most intense color of blue/purple and the light was just extraordinary. I captured a few images and then when I arrived home later in the day, the blossoms were closed up for the evening. Oh, such smart creatures....taking rest until tomorrow!

Beautiful Autumn Day

It was a beautiful autumn day. The sky was startlingly blue. The sunflowers were screaming yellow and the bees were hovering for a sweet taste. I LOVE this time of year!

International Peace Day

Did you know today is International Peace Day? It was established in 1981 by the United Nations. You can go here  http://www.upf.org/united-nations/peace-day
and learn more about the man who started it. Why don't you take just a moment, right now, take some nice deep breaths and sit in the stillness and peace that belongs to each and every one of us.

Buddha

Images of the Buddha are always striking to me and the Applied Image command in Photoshop is a lovely way to play with two given images. The first image is the two images "applied" and then below are the two images I used to create this affect. Here is the link for directions on how to use this Photoshop command.
