‘Respect yourself and others will respect you.’ - Confucius
‘The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.’ - Confucius
‘What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others.’ - Confucius
I was searching for quotes and came across a few from Confucius. He was a smart guy. It is amazing that quotes from over two thousand years ago still hold significance today.
In my Be Still 52 class the assignment was to take a Still Life Portrait, no person in the image but items that give you a 'portrait' of the person. This is a Still Life Portrait of my daughter, Megan. I took the photo on her worktable, under the strong light. This is where she loses all track of time. She makes jewelry at this table, stamping letters into metal shapes or making pendants with wire and beads. Megan loves chocolate milk and Trader Joe’s macaroons. Blue is her favorite color. She collects keys and went through a phase writing faces on rocks, I still find them everywhere in the yard. She loves the ocean and collecting seashells and sea glass. Megan’s love for the ocean prompted her to get certified in SCUBA, just in an indoor pool for now; someday she would love to SCUBA in the ocean and be a marine biologist. Her bird Rosie is one of her favorite companions, Rosie follows her everywhere. Thirteen years flies by so fast…
There is a slight chill in the air, fall is on its way in my part of Ohio. It is time to find jeans and sweaters that have been hidden for a while now, making soup and soon taking lots of pictures of colorful leaves. I hope you are enjoying your fall weather too.
Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday. My top image was textured with Kim’s texture 0603 and my Still Life Portrait was textured with total grunge.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!
