pixels 'n prose

We ourselves feel that what we are doing 

is just a drop in the ocean. 

But the ocean would be less

because of that missing drop.
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta

pixels 'n prose

A person's maturity consists in having found again

the seriousness one had as a child, 
at play.

...yarn...that is.

Becoming Art Agave yarn in 'Contrary Wise'.
And the pattern...well, you know what it is, right?

“Contrariwise,' continued Tweedledee,
'if it was so, it might be; 
and if it were so, it would be; 
but as it isn't, it ain't. 
That's logic.”

~Lewis Carroll

The best and most beautiful things in this world

cannot be seen or even heard,

but must be felt with the heart.

Recently, I was inspired by a fellow photog's images 
and wanted to experiment with nightscape photography, too. 
A far cry from knitterly pursuits, food, and cats...but totally fun! Totally.

Mr. NK and I drove into the city late one evening, sought out a vantage point, and clicked away.

I just wish we had some hot cocoa to sip on,
 as it was brrrrr-cold the night we were shooting!
Next time.

Long exposures allow for lots of playing with camera dials and knobs for some abstract effects.
Too much fun was had...
...Yep...the truth is out there now - I'm a cheap date!! :)

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.
~Leonard Cohen

three faces of aggie

The 'Do not disturb I have 23 hours of napping in my future' face.

"Dinner. Now."

And finally -"No. It's my bath time. Your photo needs are insignificant in comparison."

Yep. Not only can my cat roll his tongue (a clear sign of his genetic superiority), 
but he uses words like 'insignificant.'

I'm surely - not worthy.

If man could be crossed with the cat, 
it would improve man 
but deteriorate the cat.
~Mark Twain

socks in the city

There's nothing better than some "quiet" time spent in the city.

Just the socks, me, and the pixel maker.

Watching the world go by.

A little cup of java to help pass the time...

...and some treats...just cuz'.

A good time was had by all!

And yes...the coffee was good to the last drop, indeedy!!

And you? How do you create quiet time in the city? 

The universe is but one great city,
full of beloved ones, 
divine and human, 
by nature endeared to each other.
