You put stuff on a blog, then when someone is googling, they may come across your work. I can't imagine what the the google topic was that led them to this picture, but there they were, staring at one of my photos. An e-mail ensued asking me what I used to create the effect in the left of the photo. I replied with the truth. This is cattle hair caught on a barbed-wire fence. The dew has beaded up on the strands and I simply shot straight into the sun one morning. I messed around with some editing, and this was the result. A total stranger from halfway around the world then dashed off another note to me saying,"there is no need to make up something just so your title sounds good". I was pretty sure that I had labeled this at the time that I put it up and this was, in fact, the case. It is strands of cattle hair. If you want to call me a liar, then you had best get on a flight bound for Arkansas. Don't expect the OK Corral from me in e-mails. Some people are idiots.
Why You Have Come Here
If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.
