Pigeons along the Truckee

I haven’t been out on a photography walkabout for quite some time and it was really starting to get to me, so I took a couple of hours today to get my fix. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite images in the coming days. (Just so you know: they won’t all pigeons).  Just these two.

A year of self #31 – Heart Study

From front to back this photograph shows:

1. The necklace given to me by my daughter. With rare exception, I am never without it. She is my heart, and this necklace is my talisman.

2. The bump in my left breast bone caused by my enlarged heart from my congenital heart defect. A fact of life I live with every day.

3. The lump of my pacemaker resting on my left breast bone and which quietly allows me to live a life wherein I am not in danger passing out every time I pick up my walking pace.

An “artsy” image from the bubble wrap shoot

I played around with this one…adding texture among other tweaks in Perfect Effects 9 and then posted it on Facebook. It seems to be garnering a lot of attention, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
