Re: Series Inspired by Ernst - The Garlic Patch

Ha! It was weird digging it up like that. But I've dug up other oddities, like the dishes I posted last year, an antique pharmaceutical compounding bowl, a knife, the front plate off a blacksmith forge built in the 1800s, and a tiny green toilet the size for a toddler, with all its plumbing attachme...

Re: Breakfast At The Creek

It's a trifle too dark I think, but the scene was dark. My woods are very dense, since I've never thinned them, and they are thoroughly canopied so its pretty dark in there even at mid-day on a sunny day.

Re: Series Inspired by Ernst - The Garlic Patch

For Everything There Is A Season Including garlic. It has now finished its bloom and toppled. The leaves are yellow and wilted. So from what I am reading it is time to harvest.

Breakfast At The Creek

Caught this dragonfly munching on some greenery above the creek bed, which is almost dry now. It sometimes fills 20 acres, but sometimes is calm enough to be a dragonfly cafe.

IPad edit, so feel free to suggest improvements but “real” edits will wait till I’m home...

Re: Bow

Beautiful (model and image). I love the casual feel of the shot, and the genuine joy in her expression. The clarify in the eyes is pretty grand. And the bow detail is definitely worth naming the photo for it. But my favorite part is the mouth, an almost giggle, with those adorable baby teeth still i...

Re: 'Light Keeper' (composite)

This is a simple composite I put together a couple of months ago. It was in my archives forgotten about until I accidentally came across it once again. The lighthouse, taken in 2007, is Asylum Point Lighthouse located in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. The sailor was taken in 2015 at Fisherman's Wharf...
