Beautiful Things…

In these days of fear and gridlock, it is sometimes difficult to realize that there is always beauty if we open our eyes to what is around us. Yes, fear is a powerful emotion that can paralyze¬†but for the most part, it is self-inflicted.

Hinterland Beauty

¬† ¬†For this artsy Saturday I wanted to give you a simple picture that I took about ten years ago while traveling through the middle of our country. I don’t really recall exactly where it was taken; it could be almost anywhere. ¬†But I think it shows the beauty of the country. The general saying is that 50% of the people live within 50 miles … Continue reading Hinterland Beauty

Being deaf my world is primarily visual. So one of my most endearing hobbies is photography. I got my first 35mm camera right out of college. It, besides my 1970 Mustang, ¬†was my first extravagant purchase. ¬†I ¬†have upgraded cameras many times since then and now have a fully digital GPS enabled one¬†sitting beside me on all of my micro-RV trips and even around the … Continue reading My Visual World…
