Sweet Petals Pink

“Here’s a thorny rose: will you wear it an hour,
Till the petals drop apart still fresh and pink and sweet?
Till the petals drop from the drooping perished flower,
And only the graceless thorns are left of it.”

“Nay, I have another rose sprung in another garden,
Another rose which sweetens all the world for me.
Be you a tenderer mistress and be you a warier warden
Of your rose, as sweet as mine, and full as fair to see.”

“Nay, a bud once plucked there is no reviving,
Nor is it worth your wearing now, nor worth indeed my own;
The dead to the dead, and the living to the living.
It’s time I go within, for it’s time now you were gone.”
(Christina G. Rossetti)

For the Love of Portsmouth

A “Room With A View” has nothing on this breathtaking waterfront view in Portsmouth. At 16 stories high this is pure bliss, the combination which makes a beautiful waterscape of color and visuals that make you want to be here. A day and night of photography of the waterfront from every height and angle and its plethora of subjects made for a beautiful and successful photo shoot. There is much history here and we are venturing out to comb the city and document in images its rich history.

Among the long, black rafters
The wavering shadows lay,
And the current that came from the ocean
Seemed to lift and bear them away;

As, sweeping and eddying through them,
Rose the belated tide,
And, streaming into the moonlight,
The seaweed floated wide.

And like those waters rushing
Among the wooden piers,
A flood of thoughts came o’er me
That filled my eyes with tears.

How often, oh how often,
In the days that had gone by,
I had stood on that bridge at midnight
And gazed on that wave and sky!

How often, oh how often,
I had wished that the ebbing tide
Would bear me away on its bosom
O’er the ocean wild and wide!
(Excerpts “The Bridge” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Passion for Infrared Colors in Art

I love infrared photography whether in shades of black-white or colors.  One of our favorite photographers who shoots infrared is Clay Blackmore who creates amazing bridal infrared images.  I love creating images of nature in infrared and then process with various techniques to create art for my “Art on Canvas Collection” for Classy Chic Home Design Studio.  This is one of my latest creations for living room I designed in stunning pastels. It will be a very large canvas for the focal point for the room to draw one into the beauty of nature in spring.

“THIS peach is pink with such a pink
As suits the peach divinely;
The cunning color rarely spread
Fades to the yellow finely;
But where to spy the truest pink
Is in my Love’s soft cheek, I think.”
