November 29, 2014

To my surprise and delight this photograph of mine was one of three juror's choices in the Platinum Show at the Cambridge Art Association.

It was one of those times when something I was looking at suddenly called for photography and this time one of the shots worked to my satisfaction.  I have found that reflections and the background of my house capture my interest.  I call this one Selfie 01.

I've been having fun with the computer and photographs.  I had seen Sister Wendy Beckett on PBS talking about and showing a Rembrandt called "An Old Woman Reading" so I took another selfie in Photo Booth of my own version.

I learned from studying poetry that this is called ekphrasis from the Greek.  I was pleased that I got Sister Wendy in there too.  She's been a lovely surprise in the short TV pieces where she visits and interprets art in various museums.

I thank that's all for today.
