The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

This is a gorgeous photo, I love the glowing light in the darkness and the person is so well framed.

For a moment there I thought this was a ghost in a mirror picture! The light n face is so low, it could be- I'm guessing from the title it is a live person! Interesting antiquey setting.

Enjoy your time with your friends.
Maybe the snow won't last long.

I love Oregon where my brother-in-law lives by the beach in Brookings.

I hope to go there again someday!

This is a really neat shadow shot. I haven't been to Baker City in forever. That area is one that my husband and I need to explore though; hopefully this summer.

Take care and drive safe!

Cool pic. Mysterious.

Baker City catches a bit of snow. I think I'd rather be in Ashland or Portland this time of year. Always beautiful mountains to look at especially if you get stuck.

This and other Traffic albums can be downloaded now at iTunes. (LOL!)


The epitome of the 'dimly-lit place' here.
