ORGANIC ONE Nature Photography by Jo Ann Tomaselli
Olympus OMD EM1 with 75mm F/1.8

The bottom roots of a fig tree create wave patterns as they root to the earth and rise above the ground.

The characteristic “melting” appearance of this tree is due to its habit of dropping aerial roots from its branches.

Upon reaching the ground, thicken into supplementary trunks which help to support the weight of its crown.

Haiti’s Day of the Dead Art

Heart of Art Blog

Haiti’s Day of the Dead combines Christianity with Voodoo Practices to pray for the spirits of the dead. A black cross is sometimes hung up to symbolize the spirit of death, “Baron Samedi”. Voodoo is still practiced today with hundreds who follow this tradition. many people ask for their wishes to be granted on this day and pray for a better life, hoping the spirits of their loved ones will lend them a hand in accomplishing their goals.

Haiti's Day of the Dead by Laura Barbosa - display

As an artist, I find the Day of the dead a very interesting cultural gathering of important significance that connects life and death and because this tradition is celebrated throughout the world in so many different cultures, the inspiration to create is an endless endeavor and one I find to be fantastical!

This artwork was created on a small canvas measuring 8″ × 10″ and is painted in Acrylics on Gallery Wrapped…

Down in a Hole

El Bueno, El Feo y El Malo

Down in a Hole 1024 III

(1/30, F4.5, ISO400, 20mm)

  In the Spanish Pyrenees there are a lot of villages that were abandoned to make way for reservoirs that would fill up the valleys with water. Between 1926 and 1929 the ´Embalse de Joaquin Costa´or Lake Barasona near Graus was constructed and therefor the village of Cancér had to be abandoned.

Nowadays Cancér, being surrounded by the lake, is very difficult to reach and some of it is underneath the water surface most of the time. What remains above water is overgrown by vegetation and destroyed through time, but still contains some old houses and even a 12th century Roman church.

This photo was taken there from within a well hidden old wine cellar that a local friend showed me.

Watching The Storm From The Farm BWSC

Striking Photography by Bo

Watching The Storm From The Farm BWSC

There is not a better place to watch a thunderstorm with lightning striking and putting on a show then from the open space of a farm.  A very active spring storm striking above this cool barn out in the agriculture plains north east of Longmont Colorado.   One of my most favorite places to watch and shoot a storm.  This is a black and white with selective coloring version.  One of my favorites to do.  Hope you like.   Settings ISO 400 – f8 – 30 Sec – 28mm.  Buy custom prints online click HERE.
