Midday Shadows

Three years. How is that even possible? Suspended as I am right now at a moment of the greatest flux, when all the basics of my life are changing but not yet changed, this blog swings on—a steady little metronome, back and forth, reliably ticking the days. Looking back year over year, I am profoundly…

Key Westward, Ho!

I’m going to be away for most of this week. I’m not taking a computer with me, and I expect to be essentially incommunicado until my return. I hope I’ll have a whole passel of photographs to share with you then. A Year Ago: Garden Passage The old mansions here in DC that have been…

Bloggus Interruptus

My sister is visiting for the week. There may be intervals of no posts. My apologies in advance. A Year Ago: Oncoming It’s one of those trite observations which old people emit that cause young people to roll their eyes… [read more]

Kindred Spirit

I recently discovered Karen Walrond’s blog “Chookooloonks,” probably while doing some googling around the terms ‘something beautiful.’ My first reaction was “OMG she’s doing the exact same thing as me only better and with a huge following. I should quit now in despair.” Of course her work is too appealing and she is far too…

Beached

Was this poor dummy seduced and abandoned? Frankly, I’m feeling a bit that way myself, as for a second time my attempt to launch my new pages resulted in hugely broken and munged code. There are many things I like about Headway, the WordPress theme I use for this site, but when it goes wrong…

Frustration

Well, I was 99% of the way to the big reveal when everything went kablooie. I’ve been working like crazy behind the scenes for days now to get this ready. I was a few tweaks away from publishing the new goodies when all hell broke lose behind the scenes (code-wise). In a domino-effect-from-hell fashion, the…

This is Why

I really don’t expect anyone else to get it, but pictures like this are one big reason that I love to photograph. It’s not the typical beauty shot of a flower. It’s a bit dark and moody, much more of it is out of focus than in. But I swoon over this picture because it…

Linkage

To my twelve faithful readers: you may or may not remember some time back that I moved this blog to its own domain and am no longer posting at the old address (which was “www.luciddesign.com/somethingbeautiful/”). I would be most grateful if you could double-check your blogrolls and any other previous links you have made to…

About the Gallery

I’ve now updated the Gallery to include the Florida pictures. You all do know that you can click on most pictures in a post to see them larger, right? (I believe the technical term is “embiggen.”) The ones I like end up in the Gallery. I’m also in the process of redoing the Gallery so…

One Word: Transition

I’ve been so preoccupied with the launch of Quellebelle, that coming up with new material for this blog has been challenge. To help myself through this period, I’ve decided to sign up for Reverb10, as a way of providing some prompts. I can’t promise I’ll be entirely faithful or literal, but it’ll give me a…
