“Only in men’s imagination does every truth find an effective and undeniable existence.
Imagination, not invention, is the supreme master of art as of life” Joseph Conrad
When shooting the same coastal landscape every day, as I do in my Sunrise Sunset Image Art Series, it can be a challenge to create something visually new. At times like these, I let my imagination wander far and wide, using many tools to create an artistic rendering of a familiar scene.

“Pisces – The Fish
February 19 – March 20
Also unassuming, the Pisces zodiac signs and meanings deal with acquiring vast amounts of knowledge, but you would never know it. They keep an extremely low profile compared to others in the zodiac. They are honest, unselfish, trustworthy and often have quiet dispositions. They can be overcautious and sometimes gullible. These qualities can cause the Pisces to be taken advantage of, which is unfortunate as this sign is beautifully gentle, and generous. In the end, however, the Pisces is often the victor of ill circumstance because of his/her intense determination. They become passionately devoted to a cause – particularly if they are championing for friends or family. ” http://www.whats-your-sign.com/zodiac-signs-and-meanings.html

New Otter Animal Print
Brrr…It’s so cold in my studio this morning. Even my Carmex will not come out of it’s tube. It’s hard as a rock. But I will not be turning on the heat as that will turn my little creative box into a skin dehydrator. So instead I will warm myself with the colors of my new Color Fusion series. Yup, I’ve got some serious ottertude. Enjoy!

My featured Art Print this week is “Calla Lily” done in black and white from my Black and White Photography Two Gallery.
I love the simplicity and elegance of their bloom. When we lived in San Diego, we had a couple of “groups” of calla lilies scattered throughout our flower garden area. They would bloom proficiently in the winter months with the cooler temperate climate along the coastal regains of Southern California. The winter before we moved, I had this one loner pop up in an area of the garden where I didn’t think I had any winter flowers. A small leaf popped up and then this tall elegant bloom all by itself.
I love the calla lily in black and white. It highlights the shape and purity of the white bloom. In this shot you can see great detail even down to the minor imperfections on the blossom…

Architectural objects have always attracted me because of their use of geometry. The collection of lines and shapes creates intersections, which I believe are the starting points for art. Where things meet, tension occurs. Where the combination of the objects come together, be they lines, shapes or texture, something new now exists.
The attached image is the result of focus stacking, three images focused at different points along the structure and merged in Photoshop. Shot with Canon 7D, Tamron 60mm f/2 lens, ISO 100, f/4.0, using aperture priority.
