Photographically, I suppose I am motivated by by the promise of something new or unexpected, or bold or glorious,

And give due respect for snagging stickers on a blackberry bush that I have been oh-so-carefully been ducking-under and going-around since Spring.

CLICK for the very "best" of my work on my photo website.

I like the header shot series - "The changing of the watch".

Damn .... love that blackberry bush shot ... I've said it before, and here it is once again .... it seems to have an Asian influence.

LOVE today's banner shot too.

Always fun to come here and see your take on things. You sure captured those prickly thorns. Ouch!

Thanks SINBAD'S DAD for the name suggestion on the bird photo. Actually it seemed rather rude for one to just take over the territory by pushing the other one off, but I guess that's just the way it works.

I always appreciate your comments, HILDA. You do splendid water shots, so I know what you like.

And thanks as usual to my old buddy and confidant, JAN BELL. Quite an accomplishment to get a compliment out of you. But yeah, I like that berry bush photo with the stickers too. I think I'll make it my Xmas card this year.

And Hi PHOTOWANNABE SUE -- Yep, can't tell you how many times this year those vines have reached out and grabbed at me. Today I brushed a finger against a Stinging-Nettle -- wow, are those things ever nasty! Oh I hope not but you probably know how Nettles are -- still bugging me now, 9 hours later. I'll probably survive, though...
