Little Things Mean A Lot

By Silver Blue

Thank you to everyone who has sent me kind words on the Silver Blue Photography site. Those little words of encouragement mean more than I could ever properly let you know. This rose is for you.

Silver Blue, who wonders where the weekend went.

A photo that never was.

By Silver Blue

When I was in Florida in 2005, I came across a composite photo that I loved, though it never existed.

Marilyn Monroe and James Dean were never photographed together that I have ever been able to find, and CERTAINLY not in this intimate of a setting.

Still, the print brings me great joy and, in fact, hangs in my living room.

Silver Blue, who wonders how many other photos I like and enjoy have been composites…

Have A Ball!

By Silver Blue

I have to wonder if a toddler tossed this and it ended up by a flower bed; if a dog was chasing it, but called back before he could retrieve it; if a person was playing rebound off a garage wall and missed it with a racquet and because it was dusk, couldn’t find the ball to put it away for the night.

In any event, it made for an interesting shot in the morning light.

Silver Blue, who asks what in the world around you have you noticed that brings you joy?

Up in the sky…

By Silver Blue

It’s a bird… it’s a plane…. It’s SUPER MOON! No… silly… not this time. It’s the wind vane atop the Wren Building on the campus of the College of William and Mary:

LOVE the way this one turned out. It’s one of many that will be going up (eventually) to the SmugMug site.

Silver Blue, who needs a frosty bevvie in this heat!

There, on the horizon!

By Silver Blue

I can see it!

Well, maybe I can’t, but HE can. That’s John Wareing (1923-2000), Virginia Beach Police Officer, Trainer, and more. (He served in the US Navy and founded Wareing’s Gym in Virginia Beach.)

So, what can HE see, that I can’t? He can see the progress made on the official galleries, etc. He can see that photos are flowing up to the SmugMug site. He can see… lots of things.

I can’t wait to be able to make the post that allows you to, too. It’s coming! Soon!

Silver Blue, who is consumed with excitement!

Step by Step…

By Silver Blue

…bit by bit.

Just as roses don’t bloom all at once, it takes time to achieve one’s dreams.

With every step I take, I’m one step closer to my dream.

Silver Blue, who will be continuing to work on stuff once I’m home.

Beginnings are fragile times

By Silver Blue

I’ve not forgotten you, dear readers. Nor have I abandoned the blog. I’m just in the process of attempting to create the front end of the website (it’s coming along — I swear!), and then have to put the gallery online for you all to enjoy perusing (and perhaps, if you see something you like, purchasing).

Silver Blue, who wishes there were more hours in the day.

The photo that started the food photography.

By Silver Blue

I was over at Dannell Litchfield’s house on April 27, 2006. It was a “Survivor” night (meaning we’d watch the tele show “Survivor”, eat, and converse). Dannell made burgers that night, and thought I was crazy when I grabbed my camera and said “DON’T TOUCH THE PLATE.”

Any wonder why? If you’re a meat eater, tell me this doesn’t tempt you. The sandwich has not been staged at all. It merely is as it was served that night. It also hangs in my kitchen as a 16×20 above the door.

Dalaina Williams, from work, claims this to be one of the finest food photos she’s ever seen — and what makes it even better is that there’s no hocus pocus. As soon as I snapped off two shots, I sat down and DEVOURED this burger.

Silver Blue, who thinks its good to go back and look at technique and critique…though I can’t find anything wrong with this shot…other than I don’t have one on a plate right now!
