Lavender’s Blue in Infrared

“Lavender’s blue, Lavender’s green,
When I am King, you shall be Queen:
Who told you so, who told you so?
‘Twas mine own Heart, that told me so.”
_Lavender’s Blue

Is there anything more beautiful in photography that captures the eyes and heart than a beautiful infrared image that shocks our focus into a world of creativity of light and color?  We have loved infrared photography since our days shooting film.  We prefer using our film cameras but today there are companies that offer conversion of your digital cameras to infrared in various combinations.  If you are looking for a new photography adventure try infrared.  It is especially beautiful for nature, landscapes and wedding photography.   If you are on Facebook you have probably seen the ads for Kolarvision.  Take a look-see  at their conversions, filters and more and perhaps you will be encouraged to shoot infrared for 2018 too!

Oh Beautiful Star of Lights

“Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem”*

Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shining far through shadows dimmed
Giving the light for those who long have gone
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star the hope of light
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains ’till the break of dawn
Into the land of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star the hope, the grace
For the redeem the good and the blessed
Yonder in glory when the crowd is one
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter he will shine
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem

Resolutions & Valentine’s Day Promises

Dancla

For one of my New Year’s resolutions I promised to get back to the piano and catch up with the goal of these “six’ pieces by Valentine’s Day.  I think I am trending this year-after-year as a resolution that is on the heart and front of my list but each year is relegated to the back-burner as “more important” responsibilities and activity take me away.  Travel is often the culprit, no piano, no practice and thus it is exempted from the schedule. I wonder how many of my readers-pianists suffer this same fate?  So to “resolve” this I am making myself a Valentine’s Day promise and will give myself until the first day of summer.  Let’s see how I fare.
