    evening on the ground

    I am developing some terrible habits. Not only do I find it difficult to fall asleep late at night sometimes, I make it worse by going out and shooting photos in the dark. And then I process them. Must. Sleep. More.

    I'm (hopefully) channeling a very little bit of +Alan Shapiro's portraiture magic here. The primates were co-operative. Maybe they knew what I was thinking and wanted to help.

    his dark materials

    What a bittersweet day it's been! It's been so good to see all the photos tagged with #FleurdeLee and the corresponding outpouring of love for +Lee Daniels. Thank you all so much for joining us in celebrating her life and her light!

    I remember when I posted this series of calla lily photos. Lee was gracious enough to stop by and leave me some of her thoughts on a couple of them, and the one thing that stuck out from the interactions we had then was her saying that I will remember this... Well, we'll remember you, Lee. With sadness today, but with fondness always.


    It's #FloralFriday , and we're #rememberingLeeDaniels . From +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me, with love.

    in loving memory of ....

    Yesterday, we learned that G+ lost one of its brightest lights. She was an incredible individual who was an inspiration to many of us here. Tomorrow, #FloralFriday will be honouring +Lee Daniels with a special Fleur-de-Lee (her words -- she did love flowers) theme. Please post your favourite florals in tribute -- we'd love to see lots and lots of flowers for her.

    #FloralFriday is curated by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson and me.

    there are too many tears

    There are three four things ...

    First: happy birthday to +Louisa Catharine Forsyth!
    Second: I am leaving on a week's vacation with my family as of tomorrow evening which means that for the next seven or eight days ...
    Third: I will be mostly absent for the next couple of Fridays. I am still going to enjoy perusing your  #FloralFriday  photos, so be sure to +mention me when you name-check the other fantastic theme curators ... +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, and +Kiki Nelson.
    Fourth: I'll also be missing  #TulipSaturday , but feel free to +mention me in the same breath as the other wonderful theme curator, +Marilyn Benham. (Also, I know that +Measie Elizabeth loves tulips, so you might consider sharing your work with her as well).

    Don't break too much shit while I'm gone, kids.

    things we lost in the fire

    I typically get to work well before 7 am. It's quiet then, and I can get a lot of uninterrupted work done. It's surreal and a bit annoying to see folks roll in hours after I do -- especially if (and this is rare, I admit!) they're the ones heading toward the door in the early afternoon, hours before it's time for me to go.
    What has this to do with flowers? Or this photo? Nothing. Why?

    Look! This year's family portrait (my wife's idea)!

    We kind of have a history of doing some offbeat portraiture. My mother-in-law is getting to the point where she'd just for once like to see our goddamned faces in a family portrait. Not gonna happen.

    between birdsong and crash of surf

    HEY NEW YORK PEOPLE: +Alan Shapiro +Vivienne Gucwa +Dave Ortiz +DeShaun Craddock +Armand Salmon -- I'm looking at y'all. So there's this parade in Brooklyn at the beginning of the summer, and there's a chance -- nothing is yet firmly planned -- that my family might be hanging out somewhere in the vicinity of Coney Island right around the weekend of June 21st. Help me out here ... I need to know some stuff. Where are the good places to stay in NYC for a few nights? If we have to stay outside the city (is it best to stay outside the city, or do we want to be within the boundaries?), what's the best way to get around? And maybe there's a chance that a photowalk could happen? Anyone near NYC around?

    Hook a brother up.

    Hi! I've been sort of absent over the past couple of days, but it's for a pretty good reason! Santa was good to me this past Christmas, and brought me a new laptop to play with. I've take a couple of days to get everything set up the way I like it, but now that that's done, it's time to play again!

    Hey. You. No, no ... not you ... you. Are you ... hungry?

    I was a little bit more focused this evening while shooting photos for +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt and managed to not eat the the entire goddamned bag of cookies at one go. Was there temptation? Sure. But there was also discipline. Eight cookies isn't really that many, after all.

    Where does the time go? It's #LastCall .

    I'll bet that people are pretty tired of seeing me pimp this particular image, and for that I apologize. But. It's going to be my submission for this year's version of the Plus One Collection. You can find all the details pertaining to this project on +Ivan Makarov's stream [http://goo.gl/AgHcA].

    I chose this particular photo mostly because I had fun making it. It was a technical challenge, and in the end it actually came out better than the way I had originally envisioned it. And this: I was able to learn quite a bit in the making of the picture, and that was the best part of all.

    you don't see me at all

    Is it really the end of the week again? #FloralFriday comes around quickly! So much the better ... I get to enjoy lots of spectacular photography that much faster!

    I fear that I have not been keeping up with one of my favourite themes recently ... it's time to get back into the swing of this thing.  It's +Tamara Pruessner's +FloralFriday today!

    so in love

    Look at me, late to the #TulipSaturday party!  Why not join in every Saturday -- share a little something from your archives or shoot something new!  Tag +Measie Elizabeth, +Marilyn Benham, and me -- we love the tulips!

    with your halo slipping down

    So it's back to my front yard, now that I'm no longer buried in my youngest's room renovation. We always have flowers. So someday I'll become an expert at shooting them.

    it's not hard to be alone, even in a crowd

    I have to say ... between #FloralFriday and #TulipSaturday , my notifications blow up over the course of the weekend. That's a good thing. Thanks for playing with +Marilyn Benham and me today.

    how can you say that it was all just a dream?

    Flowers are calming. I had six extra hours on my work day this evening. All told, I spent about eighteen hours out of the house today, and I can't tell you how much that sucks.  But the flowers help.

    did you ever learn to live?

    Thursday is here (somewhere in the world, it's Thursday), and that means that #FloralFriday can't be very far behind. And it's time to get out into the garden, or into the arboretum, or the greenhouse ... or even the grocery store. I wanna see some floral loooove.

    bee yourself ... or alternately, none of your beeswax

    Yes, yes, yes. #FloralFriday is here! The summer is beginning to give way to cooler temperatures north of the equator -- but let's see if we can keep the profusion of flowers trailing through all our streams, shall we?

    The +FloralFriday theme was created by +Tamara Pruessner and is co-curated by +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me.

    all our souls

    It's been quite a busy #FloralFriday , and I wish I had been able to devote more time to the lovely photos that have been posted today. Instead, I've been busy ... I'm at present in the States visiting family for a few days, and that's taken up a lot of my time.  That said, there have been plenty of amazing photos posted already from what I've been able to see during my occasional phone check-ins, so thanks to everyone for helping to make this theme both beautiful and successful!

    Well. I certainly intended to get a much earlier start at this, but ... here I am, later than I intended to be. Welcome to #FloralFriday ! Please continue to post your fantastic photos, and make sure to mention your curators -- +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me so that we can enjoy them!

    Happy anniversary to us!

    After fourteen years, I still get a fluttery feeling when I think about us together. That day was the beginning of the best part of my life.

    nothing ever ends

    I wish that today had been the kind of day that would have allowed me to be more comment-y instead of just plus-y. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful floral discoveries with the #FloralFriday team of +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson and me. It's always one of my favourite days.

    everything you want is something you couldn't have

    I'm sad to see that there are fewer and fewer flowers out there as the year goes on. I'm glad to see that so many of you are still able to share their vibrance and loveliness with our +FloralFriday team, even this late in the year!
    Keep sharing your work with +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me!  :-)

    It's settled. My favourite flowers are gerbera daisies. I can never keep them alive, though! So I have to keep buying them ...

    Good morning, #FloralFriday friends. Today will be a sick day for me ... I'm home from work trying to recover from some kind of disgusting, snotty illness, so I won't be around very much today. That said, please continue to share your images with +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me. You can also tag +FloralFriday, but please don't tag your curators in the photo.

    Have fun, everyone, and please keep your images coming!

    It's time for me to sleep and to dream ... to dream of seeing lots of #FloralFriday photos in my stream tomorrow, that is! Please share your work with +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me. And feel free to tag the +FloralFriday page in your photos (but don't tag the curators!).

    we people

    It almost seems as though the coming of spring is going to be heralded by lots of daffodils. And as it happens, I have just recently put a pot of these in my kitchen! Happy #FloralFriday , folks.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely work with +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson and me!

    A bed of roses is an overrated and impractical place to try to get a night's sleep.  The smell eventually becomes overwhelming, and the thorns can be ... troublesome.

    (In other news, I really should be more proactive about my sleep schedule.)

    you never go back

    I was shooting some lilies tonight -- tomorrow's #FloralFriday , you know. Do you know which of them I liked? Every single one. And you know which of your #FloralFriday photos I'll like, don't you? :-D

    Help +Tamara Pruessner, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and me celebrate the end of the work week!
