Below is the original photo used to create this image. It’s a gorgeous sunset taken outside of Mesa, Arizona in November, 2008 at my grandparents’ 50th anniversary party. If you look closely, you can make out saguaro cacti. A simple snap from my Kodak Share camera.

Tonight’s December thirty-first, Something is about to burst. The clock is crouching, dark and small, Like a time bomb in the hall. Hark, it’s midnight, children dear. Duck! Here comes another year!
–Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below is the original photo used to create this image. All I can say, is sometimes you have to look down to see a rainbow.. I caught this oil-slick rainbow at dusk after a rain just outside my office building with no special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.

Below is the original photo used to create this image. This one came out of the archive. It’s a stormy Atlantic Ocean from a trip to Nags Head, North Carolina in the late 90’s. I had one of those awesome film cameras that took panoramic shots. Film negative saved to CD.
