The Creative

Man, I am so struggling.  My Creative is in Stuck Mode.  From time to time a burst of Creative will happen and then it's a thought.  What the hell?  I don't mean to whine.  Really.  I don't.  Here's a burst of the Creative that happened last week:

There was this teeny tiny moth outside on the bubble glassed panel that runs the length of our front door.  Our porch is dark, shaded, protected, and this little moth was resting there.  Slipping outside I crept closer and closer shooting as stealthily as possible.  I shouldn't have worried.  She wasn't bothered by my presence.

Because the porch is dark and shaded this was the best shot I could get.  I couldn't possibly bother to set up the tripod.  When the Creative shows up it's best not to delay.  It's the action that counts, and these images are okay.  The simplicity.  The little feathery antennae.  Feeling a tad more blissful I came inside, turned around to close the door.  I could still see the little moth from the inside.

The bubbly glass made the moth look like she's under water, and the light from within the house brightened up her colors.  How pretty!  It all depends on one's point of view, doesn't it?

Outside looking in or inside looking out.  The moth is the same but the images are completely different.  This wonderful hobby of photography has helped me truly "see" our world in many ways.  That my Creative will return I've no doubt.  You see, Autumn is coming and Autumn is my favorite time of the year.  Crisp air, bright skies, changing light - ahhhhh, changing light!  Gotta go chase it.

You just never know when your creativeness will swing into action Debi! Love the great photos!

Yes, Debi, you are creative. Are you shooting every day? No matter what? Anything that catches your attention for a millisecond or longer? When I am slumping, I shoot things like salt shakers and forks balanced on cups of cold coffee. Hey, anything counts as a shot when your muse is lost... :-)

That is most certainly Creative. I like these captures from both inside and out. The silhouettes are great but the texture and colors through the glass is awesome. I like your kind of Creative.

I love when that happens, when the little voice in your head says "try it!". I almost always learn something, and sometimes the result is unique and special. Glad you followed your instincts on this. These are really cool...especially that "underwater" shot.

You have quite an eye! I'm really enjoying your work.

I gave you one of my weekly Goddess awards for your sidebar if you are interested.

In joy,

The Goddess sent us to check out your blog. Nice post. So, you are a photographer. And you can write too.

Your Creative is quite well and alive in these wondrous images. I love how you made me see water. Chasing light is good too. Thank you for your kind words and thoughts over at FHF. Lyme can be taxing . . . when sitting in front of a computer and trying to think clearly enough to write . . . sometimes it is easier than other times . . . your work made it easy today. ;>)

you are right not to delay. the texture of the moth's underside, the richness of the brown, i liked it a lot.
