The Healing

Through the fog

I swim toward the light.

From the dark

I struggle toward the dawn.

It’s easier now

As winter stretches into spring

And the warmth renews my broken body.

Wild flowers paint the hillsides,

Glowing like fairy lights as the dawn bursts forth

In all its glory.

And though their life be short in this desert clime,

they heal and help restore my battered being

bringing me out of the fog

and into the bright light of day.

This is what I awoke to a couple of mornings ago. Monsoon season in Arizona presents us with surprising views.

Cactus Blossom - Manipulated Polaroid-1

This was taken with a Polaroid 690 SLR with 600 type film. The original print stands on its own in that the colour was perfect. There were a couple of minor distractions which I cloned out before actually manipulating the print in Photoshop Elements. This is the reason I’m unhappy about Polaroid’s decision to no longer manufacture their film as I find it a perfect base for manipulation, but I’m buying up what I can afford and will store it for as long as it’s date allows.

Mexican Saguaro Manipulated Polaroid

This is another example of a manipulated Polaroid integral print. First I played with the exposure, then I moved it into Photoshop Elements for further manipulation. I feel it resembles a crude but effective wall hanging, something that I imagine might be found in and nineteenth century prairie homestead.

Nature's Palette

What grander spectacle is there than Nature’s Palette?

This was taken not too long ago in Minnesota.

There is nothing as impressive as a desert sunset.
