I Was Almost There

I Was Almost There, originally uploaded by artouttamymind.

This was taken in MacArthur Park, just outside the Arts Center, right before a rain storm and my class. I didn't see that it reflected how I felt until I started working on the image in the middle of the night, getting ready to post it to Flickr. I think it shows a little of how I've been feeling lately....like everything is colorful "out there", and I'm "in here", where things are quite blurry and almost dark, with just glimmers of what could be possible....

Long Forgotten Memories

Long Forgotten Memories, originally uploaded by artouttamymind.

Memories are funny things. I've got memories of things that didn't even happen to me, and probably no memories of many things that did.

Wispy, fleeting, faint, and gauzy...this image exemplifies how I feel today.

Watching You

Watching You, originally uploaded by artouttamymind.

More often than not, Beau likes to look at me with one eye, so I thought this image was very appropriate. Maybe I should've titled it "Keeping an Eye on You".

Quality, originally uploaded by artouttamymind.

What makes one image more interesting than another? They all come from same place inside me....I know some are better than others. I know some are easier to make than others....but when I put one "out" for the world to see, I'm not quite clear on what makes other people want to look at one more than another...

As the Darkness Whispers My Name

The darkness has certainly been whispering my name lately, especially with all the snow and ice we've been getting. But I've been trying to fight off the isolation.

It helps to get phone calls from old friends, calling to check on me. Even though they're far away, I really appreciate knowing there are people out there who care about me....

You know who you are.....
