If I was to have another life…

Sometimes I think if I was to have another life I would try to become the Georgia O’Keeffe of photography.   This is what wikipedia says about O’Keeffe:

She made large-format paintings of enlarged blossoms, presenting them close up as if seen through a magnifying lens…

Yep.  I would want to do that.  For days I’ve been taking different pictures of the last of the valentines roses on my island. 


I am fascinated by the shapes and colors and textures of flowers, fascinated by the symmetry and the individuality of them all.


I don’t have a great photographer’s eye, so I am always wondering if I can use my camera to translate the beauty I see into a picture that shows that beauty. 



One of the doctor’s offices that I went to last fall had artwork all over it that was just spectacular to me.  I only had my phone with me but I still took some pictures of the canvases just so I could remember how terrific they were.  They were big squares, probably about 2 feet by 2 feet.  Aren’t these amazing!



  1. Beautiful pics! But you know what Georgia O'Keefe is really supposed to have painted right? ;-)
