Making the Commonplace

A   L   O   H   A  !
 " The day after tomorrow
 is the third day 
of the rest of 
your life. "

 George Carlin

" To give pleasure
 to a single heart
 by a single act
 is better than
 a thousand heads
 bowing in prayer. "

Mahatma Gandhi

" Anything that excites me
 for any reason,
 I will photograph;

not searching
for unusual subject matter,

but making the commonplace
unusual. "

Edward Weston


Thank you

Da doggie's cute, but is he waiting, guarding the trash can, or tied out for trash? Would Pixie Kitty like him? DrumMajor

Sandra said...

i agree 100 percent with the Weston quote and that is my aim in life. beautiful photos, especially the sweet little pup

Sandra said...

Charles Gramlich said...

An act of kindness is better than a prayer. absolutely.

Karen S. said...

I do enjoy your shots! I believe we think along the same shooting patterns too...!

Hilary said...

I like the way Weston thinks.. and how you express that your own self.

Continue to like the Western quote. And yes, it surely is much more difficult to take a picture of weed, than of a Molotov-Cocktail.

Please have you all a good Wednesday.
