  • August 2017 Arts & Crafts

    We're in the peak of 'urban farming' (aka, landscape design/build) season. So I got nothin'! And here it is the 4th already! C'mon, Arlen, Patrick, Kim, Skip, Gary, Randy, Coleman's wife, Dorylf, and all you other Westfly creative types (as fly fishers, aren't we all), that includes you Uncle Fuzzy. Show us what you got, please. I need some inspiration!

              If poetry is okey dokey I have this...

              Music

              We capture music with machines
              Glorious complicated machines
              Like a best seller in it’s 12th edition
              But we want to here the sweet sound
              Whatever form in any edition
              If we could just capture it in a jar
              Like an echo, wraith , fairy or ghost
              Might that not be the epitome
              Of what we want most
              Latent echoes of performance
              Not mechanized, nor copied but pure
              A room full of jars just waiting
              To be opened and heard
              In our time of leisure
              I live in words
              written and hopefully heard
              I scratch things down” In an analog way
              Only to reinterpret into the digital fray
              What is lost in the transition?
              Perhaps an emphasis
              On all consuming ambition
              I don’t know nor understand
              A piece of fine paper scribed in pen
              It conveys what we intend
              We bridge this realm of communication
              with impulsive utterances,
              quick inventions, never experienced
              Personally with eye contact, No
              How do we discern honesty without contact
              This remote realm we engage
              We live in , deceives us all
              Words are not all there is
              There are places between the lines
              That people fill with innuendo
              Not conveyed with intent
              So if we think and feel
              And convey with selective thought
              Can we not efficiently say
              What is our true intent?
              The world of communication
              Has evolved without astute intervention
              Poetry is dying and so is art
              Perhaps what I am implying
              Is to make an aesthetic restart
              Boot up what you truly know
              And convey it with your inner glow
              And then and only then
              Will we truly understand
              Each other

                  Alright Bill. We have been getting out but my daughter stole my DSLR so I don't have much to offer. Here are some from my phone.

                  I will start with some flowers from the Corvallis farmer's market a few weeks back.

                  My daughter actually took this out the window with my phone as I was driving out of Crater Lake last week - cropped and doctored a little.

                  Finally a trip to Proxy Falls. Bright sunlight so I had to crop out a bunch of the image. Such a cool place.

                    Here's hoping your daughter is putting the camera to great use, Patrick.

                    Really am enjoying the Proxy Falls shot. So many wonderful things going on in that photo! Especially the stones in the foreground. Feels like I'm there! And personally, so glad the water is not overly blurred. Which seems to be so popular with moving water shots these days.

                      I never know if I'm posting as a response to the thread, or comment to someone's post -- not a fan of the format, but figured I'd post a couple of eclipse photos to make amends for adding my presence to the temporary disruption of quiet and solitude around Baker City yesterday.

                        I had noticed the small dot of light just to the upper left of the moon/sun and dismissed it as a reflection of light on the camera lens. After someone pointed out this website, I think it might be the planet Regulus?

                          In the sky, Regulus would have appeared to the left and below the sun. However depending on what you shot it through, some telescopes will flip the image top to bottom, etc. Regulus is a star, rather than planet, and is located about 72 light years away. It's actually four stars circling one another, in a rather effed up system that causes the main star (which is a few times larger than our sun) to be misshaped and spinning so fast that it is barely able to hold itself together.
