NAMASTÉ

Namasté- “My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty, and peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.”

———————————————————-

My latest fine art print, one I have been wanting to do for a long time, is finished! Levitation photography is fascinating to me.  I hope you enjoy the final image as much as I enjoyed creating it!  In light of all the current unrest in our world, I would like to say “Namasté to you all….and hope you find the light and love within yourself and others as much as possible. To quote John Lennon:  “Peace is not something you wish for;  it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.”

XOXO ~ Christine

Welcome back to the Blog

I looked at my blog the other day.  I knew it had been a long time; and in fact the longer it had been, the longer I stayed away.  But, finally, I came back.  It has been a year and a half since I have posted here.  Sad, but true.  So i decided the best way to get back into a photography blog was with a session of “selfies”, to let you see how much I have aged in the past year.  😉 Self portraits are always the hardest sessions for me.  I much prefer to be behind the camera – not in front of it.  But I think it helps me grow as a photog to do them from time to time.  So here they are.  Enjoy! ~ Christine 🙂

Day 10: Carl Sandburg Home – Connemara

The first time I visited Carl Sandburg’s North Carolina mountain home, I wasn’t quite sure who he was.  I had been told repeatedly, though, that I needed to take my kids up to see the goats at Connemara, and to walk the trails offered for enjoyment there.  It was free, with a small fee being charged only to tour the home.  Here is a link with more information. http://www.nps.gov/carl/index.htm

Since the first time that I went to Carl Sandburg’s home 2 years ago, we make it a “must see” place to visit each time that we come.   The kids DO love to interact with the goats (especially in the spring when the babies are born!), but they also love to walk the trails, look at the waterfall, and see glassy mountain when they are there.

Now that our “baby” is almost 3  (too big to carry, yet too small to walk the 3 miles round trip)….you will not see images of the views of Big Glassy Mountain here today.  But here is a little bit of eye candy of what Connemara farms has to offer, should you ever decide to make the trip.  Enjoy~

The bridge onto the property

An interesting tree stump. I saw a lady in a dress floating...what do you see?

Another interesting tree stump.....or is this the BEST hide and seek spot EVER?!?!?!?
