I worked on refractographs the past few nights.  It's the process of bending and painting with nothing more than a pinhole of light and different objects to refract the light.  I used a stemless wine glass to create these two and a few gels for color.

Remembering Finn...

It was a week ago tonight that I lost my sweet little buddy who "talked" to me everyday.  He brought me indescribable joy ❤️ and was such a comfort during the difficult times.  He was my "monkey boy."  We rescued each other and I am very grateful for our time together.

Finn tales l If only...

He's been doing this since he was a baby.  He's a feral rescue and I've worked diligently with him and the only remaining "feral" aspect is fear (which will not change.) He's smart, spoiled and lives within the boundaries I've worked so hard to teach him.  If only I could only teach him how to turn his faucet (it's all his) on and off...  I would be THRILLED! 😻

One word... EPIC

Last night's Aurora Borealis made it's way well into Washington state and it was epic!  The lights were dancing and pulsing with pillars reaching so high I felt I was in nature's cathedral.  It was breathtaking to witness with the naked eye.

Aurora Borealis | August 21, 2017

Not exactly what I was hoping to get last night given the numbers and contending with the light pollution from a neighboring town, but I'll take it. It's close to home and it was a long day yesterday starting with the eclipse. If you blinked last night from my location, you missed it.  There's nothing like sitting underneath a blanket of stars on a warm summer evening.  It's my little slice of heaven when I'm not photographing portraits.
