Lighten Up

The deepest cry of my heart is simply to see, and love.

I was messing around with my little OLD point and shoot today, trying to see light, like Claire, Kelley, Darlene, Monica, S. Etole, Diane, Nancy, and Erin.

 I want to be like them when I grow up. This was a good exercise. 

They are doing a prompted PhotoPlay over at High Calling. They are out of my league entirely. But I'm playing on the sidelines, inspired by them. Check their posts out. You'll be enchanted. 

The idea that something is elegant and speaks because of what ISN'T there, woos my heart completely. I'm learning to see.

See, and love. Is there much more than this?

Is there a sideline for the sidelines? Because I'm not sure I'm even in that league. :)

S. Etole said...

I'd say you are seeing just fine ... the shadows in that last one are inviting.

Laura said...

Just beautiful! Love the way you see.

I love the way you see too! Wow! The art is in the capturing of what you see so I see it too -- and I do!

Now miss Kathleen, you are slightly silly! I reckon we are each on the sidelines. Together. Does this mean we need to wear those ridiculous short skirts and do flips and fancy jumps? Or can we just shoot from the hip?

- Do tell, what is the first image? What is the shiny part?
- The spring close-up is way cool. Had I not seen the previous image, I would not have known.
- And all I see is a church in the last image. I reckon if it's a church or a napkin holder, they both house the very thing we need to wipe us clean.

Wonderful. And please, won't you let me stand with you, toe to the line miss Kathleen?

Kathleen ... there's nothing sideline about your images! Why do we always think everyone else has the good stuff and we're just tagalongs? You've got buckets of the good stuff.
