The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place, from the sky, from the eartch, from a scrape of paper, from a spider’s web.” – Pablo Picasso

My spider inspired me to start a new feature – Creepy Friday! This will feature bugs and reptiles and other crawling and perhaps even flying things on my morning post. But probably not my beautiful dragonflies or butterflies.

And don’t forget Bird Monday and Wildflower Wednesday,

Hanging Out – Little Big Econ wilderness – November 2014

“I have often photographed when I am not in tune with nature but the photographs look as if I had been. So I conclude that something in nature says, ‘Come and take my photograph’. So I do regardless of how I feel.” – Minor White

Minor White was zen before there was zen. If that makes sense to anyone. He embodied the principles of zen in his photography, before they were popular in our society. That’s what I got while reading the essays in Eye Mind Spirit – The Enduring Legacy of Minor White edited by Nathan Lyons, a book that was published with an exhibit by the same name at the Howard Greenberg Gallery commemorating what would have been Minor Whites’ 100 birthday.
