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.

Photo #45 2012

And in my left hand is...........
a small yellow rock from our friends croft Loch na Mhoid
outside Inverness Scotland
the piece of granite is from a cemetery in Guanajuato Mexico
and the long reddish brown stone is from Flodden Field* in Great Britain
where one of Russell's ancestors died in a battle during 1513.
I am always picking up interesting stones or other found objects and carrying
them in my pockets like they were talismans or totems.
To see what's in my left hand go here:

*The Battle of Flodden or Flodden Field or occasionally Battle of Branxton was fought in the county of Northumberland in northern England on 9 September 1513, between an invading Scots army under King James IV and an English army commanded by the Earl of Surrey. It ended in victory for the English army, and was the largest battle (in terms of numbers) fought between the two nations.[5] James IV was himself killed in the battle, becoming the last British monarch to suffer such a fate.

Hi, just found your site and am really enjoying your photos. I'll be coming back often. I have recently started a blog of photo a day but all mine are from my yard and home. Hope to last a year. Come by and visit.
