ooo neat! - do you know how to make those 'magic circles'? i've used the 'polar coordinates' but there must be more to the method. you probably don't know what i'm talkin about do ya ;)

Do you mean the highlights on the sphere? Or is that too obvious a guess? I suppose photography is just a snap for me. *lol*

I'm simply having a little fun, although I enjoy finding subjects I think are worthwhile or interesting. I would appreciate any little hints on where to go although I wouldn't want you to go to any trouble.

I do enjoy the experience of having someone see something through my eye, though. It's like you are making a little connection that otherwise might not be there. Don't you think?

you can hope to and sometimes you will. but i find it interesting how much people miss. when i find that rare person that really 'sees' whats going on it i am happy to find such a person. maybe the same for your writing?

here are magic circles:

I think perceptions can change because everyone sees things a little differently. I may write something and have it trigger something totally unrelated to what I "intended" in someone else's head. I don't think that makes it any less valid. I think good art (probably bad art too) can do that.

It was interesting a couple of messages back that you implied you didn't have a plan per se when you worked. When I write, I pretty much know what I want the last paragraph to say, I may even know the last line. I have a clear image of the types of feelings I want to invoke and many clear steps that I want to take to get there. My stories are very character-driven so that I can create situations where you know how they'd react but can sometimes surprise you too.

Like you, I'll often be struggling at one stage, anxious to get to where I want to be next, but needing to lay the foundation to get there. Sometimes a set-up will take a life of its own and I'll find myself "going with the flow" too and something unexpected will result and changed a direction I intended to go. It is a strange and tortuous process.

Thanks for the link, btw. I don't have the photoshop software I'd need but I think my niece does. Maybe we can play with it a little there. I appreciate your comments so much, and don't hesitate to make fun of me if you get tickled. I have very thick skin. :)

It was there, I just took it. *lol* It is kind of fun experimenting. Ever fool much with photography?

I experimented when I was younger, but haven't taken it up recently. Mr. Ed was the photographer, he minored in it for his B.A.. So, I hung around with artists and photographers. It was an interesting group, to say the least. lol!

I think it'd be cool if all my friends put up a little shot of their environment/surroundings once in a while, no matter how bizarre. I want to get some river shots looking at the New Orleans skyline and some Bayou/Cajun country shots too eventually.

Unfortunately I don't have a digital camera or a scanner. Usually I take my disposable camera in and have them put the images on a CD.
