Kreativ Blogger Award

Savannah Park, October 2007 - Sony Cybershot

It's award time. Sharon has once again bestowed upon me an awesome blog award. She's cool like that.

The rules are:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them

So here goes!

1. Thank you, Sharon! You are such an awesome friend, inspiration and your encouragement has meant more to me than I can say.

2. See above.

3. Mana Moon Studios. Go there now and check out all the pretty. Go on. I'll wait.

4. 7 Things, eh? Okay: (1) I love art. I could spend all day in almost any museum you could think of. (2) I have a secret crush on Gabriel Byrne. Can't explain it. (3) I have an enormous CD collection, from back in the days before music downloads. (4) I will watch my favorite scenes from a movie over and over again. Thank goodness for DVD scene skipping. (5) Some of these movies are embarrassing (like Electra or Transformers). (6) I don't like sausage. My father considers this a most unforgivable character flaw. (7) I own over fifteen computer keyboards. I am obsessed with the clicky sounds of the keys.

5. Nominations:
- Mana Moon Studios - cause she's just that great.
- Penelope Illustrations - incredible artist and new mom
- Amalah - because she cracks me up every time
- Ink on My Fingers - gorgeous polaroids, amazing writer
- design is mine - beautiful inspiration
- simply breakfast - her photos are gorgeous, and it inspires me to make creative breakfasts

6. See above.

7. Will do!

Inspiration Avenue: Travel

Train Tracks, October 2005 - Sony Cybershot

A thousand things occur to me when someone says the word travel, but the first one is always trains. I love trains and all things train-related. It's genetic; I get it from my father. It's not technically new material, as I took it on a trip to Chattanooga four years ago, but I processed it today. You think that counts?

Something That Resonates

Secret Spot, November 2008 - Nikon D40 with 55mm lens

"And the answer that you're seeking
For the questions that you found
Drives you further to confusion
As you lose your sense of ground

So don't forget to breathe
Don't forget to breathe
Your whole life is here
No eleventh hour reprieve
So don't forget to breathe."

If Not For The Power Lines

Highway Sunset, September 30, 2009 - Sony Cybershot

In the interest of full disclosure, I did tweak this shot a bit. But I probably didn't need to tell you that, since it looks like a post-nuclear sunset. Complete with Burger King in the left corner.
