Candidate #7– Giverny Kiss

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This one was taken in Giverny outside of Vernon France. This place is so romantic, it is hard not to get cuddly. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Plethora of Lilies

Last winter almost killed our “butterfly bushes” and we lost some lilies and other perennials but the Day Lilies seem to have liked it. This is the most buds we have ever had on this day Lilly plant in ten years.

Candidate #6–Passionate Kiss

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This one was taken in Paris. This was the image I was capturing when young man in Candidate #5 saw me and stuck his face in my camera and laughing shouted Bienvenue a Paris!

Candidate #5–Bienvenue a Paris

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

Pocono Lily

Lilies are the crown jewels of our garden. When they bloom Summer is in full gear. Lilies remind me of warm weather, swimming pools, lakes and walks in the park. I think they might be my favorite except for tulips, daffodils…oh never mind, I don’t really have a favorite. They are just beautiful flowers.

Bud Bug

This is our first day Lilly of the season. I like this close up the best even though it is not cropped quite right. I like it because of the little bug feasting on one of the flower’s stamens. You can see the weight of the bug actually causing the stamen to bend. I expect the weight which has to be less than a tenth of an ounce which proves once again that all things are relative..

Approved for Publication

DreamMap has been approved for publication by Amazon and I have ordered proof copies for my reader panel. I hope to have it available and for sale by September 1st. It will be available in paperback and a Kindle edition through Amazon. By the time it is available it will have taken two years and four revisions. It is by far the longest creative project I have ever been involved in. I have to thank Hinda Burke, my soulmate and editor for helping with this novel and translating it in to actual english rather than the weird stuff I write down.
