Reverence for Life
Life should attain depth. And reverence for life should be the only religion. Then man can be healed. -Osho
This Greenhill Vineyard fine art photograph shows the majestic view from Greenhill Vineyard in Middleburg, VA with the yellow autumn leaves in the hillsides surrounding the vineyard. October is a great time to visit Middleburg. My husband and I go for the Windy Hill Fashion Show and stay at the Salamandar Resort. More pics to come from that weekend.
This is the first in a series of photographs from Mt. Vernon, Maryland. I love the architecture in Mt. Vernon, the attention to detail, the craftsmanship from centuries ago. This image of a railing is a perfect example. Three hearts, beautifully crafted, grace the entry to a stately home.
There’s new moon magic today. The new moon in Libra arrived at 2:13 am ET today. In honor of this, I’m sharing these Super Moon photos captured during the last of three Super Moons in 2014.
The new moon is a time for new beginnings and setting intentions. My friend Tomar Levine began an experiment in January 2014 setting intentions aligned with each new moon’s specific energetic influences. She created a FB group that is free to join, and she sends a newsletter before each new moon with guidelines for setting intentions aligned with that moon’s zodiac sign. Here’s an excerpt on the new moon in Libra:
Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. So love relationships are central to this sign, but really all partnerships and teamwork. Valuing beauty, creating harmony around you and inner and outer balance are all themes.
This is a good time to look for areas of chaos or disorder in your life that you can heal and harmonize. And when you do this (as the Akashic Masters say below) you will be helping to heal the world too.
You can see the full post here, with guidelines for how to write intentions during this new moon. This page includes a link to join the free FB group to share your new intentions if you’d like to do that.
Perception is one of a series of black and white photographs of the pier at Havre de Grace, MD, on the Susquehanna River that feeds into the Chesapeake Bay.
The title was inspired by this quote from Anais Nin:
“It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.” -Anais Nin
If you live near the water, you cease to see the beauty of the pier. It becomes a means to an end… the path to board a boat or to sit on a bench to enjoy the view. Yet from an artist’s perspective, there is beauty in the simplicity and lines of the pier, in the perspective of the walk toward the horizon. There is beauty in the free-standing posts jutting out of the water and the juxtaposition of the hard wood with the waves of the water. That’s what photography does… it ‘shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.’

Bless It Anyway. The title was inspired by this quote:
“If what you are experiencing is not what you want, bless it anyway.
“But do not dwell there. Shift your focus to ask for whatever good you want – greater happiness, joy-filled relationships, abundant income, satisfying work. Then say, “Thank you God” and release your prayers to the Universe to be fulfilled. Whenever you think of it, bless your life, say thank you for what you have and want, then let Divine Will take over.” – Archangel Michael

I rarely do black and white photography, mostly because I love color so much. But when I started working with this photo, I became mesmerized by the lines of the pier posts and the three benches. Using black and white, I could make the water and sky nearly disappear, so it looks like the pier and the benches are floating in the middle of nowhere. Hence the name Eternity. That’s what I love about sitting on the end of a pier, looking out at the horizon, especially when all is quiet around me. Feeling the vastness of the universe and my connection to it, and the shifting perspective that always gives me about whatever is troubling me in the world. From the vastness of eternity, my worldly struggles are mere still frames in the movie that is my life.
