Chandler Day 204: This Valley Isn’t Any Fun

DSC04086Some days are just filled with ups and downs. ¬†Arguments and bad feelings and then talking and back to normal. Rain and storms and then clarity. Life is full of ups and downs. Highs and lows. Actions and reactions. While the lows suck and they can be miserable I think they are important. I’d go so far as to say they are necessary. We need them to learn. I know I have learned the most about myself when I am at my lowest. I learned today the damage that can be done from shutting down and not letting anyone in on how you feel.

Brandy Day183: Art

image

Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities; visual arts, performing arts, decorative arts, applied arts, fine arts & creative arts. Art may be characterized in terms of expression, communication of emotion or other qualities. Express yourself. Do your thing. Photography is my thing. My art. I love seeing the world abstractly.
I didn’t catch the gentleman’s name as I didn’t want to interrupt his groove, but he was well into his ‘art’. I sat and watched his intensity for a bit after I captured this photo.
Thank you to all of you who share your art and express yourselves.

Brandy Day174: Thunderstorms & Tears

Though I generally love storms it seems today’s has added emotion. My heart and emotions themselves have felt like a summer storm. Nothing I won’t be able to work through, but certainly nothing I want to be experiencing right now.
I was able to get this shot doing what I do best, driving & shooting.  Some pretty gnarly clouds over the tracks in Pendleton IN.
