Folks, I have to admit... my job seems to be taking most of my good energy, so I haven't been out taking many photos :(. The lovely sky photos I've shared in the last few posts have been when I've been lucky enough to have some interesting weather come my way after work. I spoke with a friend of mine "back home" today while on my lunch break, and she said "When are you going to update your blog?!" So I thought I'd share a few photos I took while out on a trail down south near Carlsbad Caverns about a month ago. These little rocks & pebbles with their shadows really intrigued me. I tend to pay attention to the little things... the details. With the sun setting, even the tiniest of pebbles cast such long shadows, and I love how the low light brings out all the texture & details in the rock. I think these images might also serve a future purpose one day as a template for a painting perhaps, or to try & achieve a similar texture on a clay surface. Speaking of clay, I did get myself signed up for a clay class in September... I can hardly wait, as I cannot begin to express how much I miss creating!! I'll give more details in a few weeks. If I can manage getting up early enough tomorrow to hit the farmer's market before work... I'll be sure to take my camera along & hopefully get some good shots to share!
