This creature, porcine, wasn't evident until the film was developed.

It was about 95 degrees at the Hakone Gardens on the 15th and I shot photographs of anything that interested me without paying too much attention to what was in the viewfinder. The light streaming through the tree caught my attention. I couldn't resist manipulating the area of the tree were this porcine seems to have wilted in the heat.

Short Take

Hurray for the ARTS!

Gleaned from today's newspaper:
Stephen Noonan, the new school's principal (Mahanttan High School For Arts) said one science teacher at first "didn't believe that contact with great music, dance, painting or any art could support his work with students in, say, a physics lab. But what he found was that studying a dance made students observe motion, light, movement, speed--and their observations and notes in science improved, they became clearer."

Only as high as I can reach

Self Portrait - June 05 - oh how I love being able to manipulate photos!

My face is showing the toll Stacy's numerous hospitalizations has taken on me; dark circles, saggy skin and more lines and white hair than I can count! This image looks more like I feel inside and not the face I see in the mirror!
