Yesterday and today I worked on this…

A new small patio just
outside our front door.
Anything to keep 16 paws
from bringing more dirt into
the house.

When I looked at this photograph I kept seeing
pattern, and began to think about all the pattern
around me everywhere, like here…

Ripples on the water,
and here…

The top of the rustic fence, and here…

The holes in the back
of the outdoor chair, and here…

The shingles on the house.

Texture and pattern everywhere, and since I
am too tired from moving rock all day, I played
with pattern in photoshop here…

diffuse glow

some sketch effects

and some pointilization
thrown in. Now if it were orange, oh,
like this bamboo…

And this steel sunflower…

I would be so happy.

Boy’s birthday today, 24 whole years
celebrating on Sunday for a big brunch.

Happy Friday all.

    Hi Corrine! Your photos are lovely. Isn't it great how our artist mind just keeps seeing the elements of art in the world around us, in the simplest of things. Happy birthday to your boy – enjoy your time with him!!
    cheers and hugs!

    I work together with a friend on a photo collaboration and we have decided for the next weeks to take pictures like your Pictures. I would be happy if I found such great motives like you have taken a photo of them here – congrads!!!

    Orange bamboo – I would love some of them in my garden or my living room wall!
