As the way I shoot, process, and share online changes (I don’t do this sequentially anymore) and the more other projects I create for myself, the more I struggle to post this Meme every Sunday. I’ve had thoughts about ending it or altering it. Maybe do a Monthly Favorites post and a Weekly Theme post on Sundays? To those who have still been participating, what are your thoughts? Here’s a selection of my favorites from this past month. Thanks for reading and viewing.
The Fairest In All The Land
I Found A Piece Of Myself You Left On The Floor
And The Creatures Of Darkness Recoiled
If You Don’t Believe In Magic
Fading Away And I Can Hardly Breathe
Love. Shrooms. And Death.
Build Me An F-150, Mr. Ford
As We Witness The Sunrise
Would The Lights Be Enough To Stop Me From Sinking?
Stroke My Keys So I Can Sing To You
it is early evening and
a drink has found its way
into her hand while a
inside her heart
her feet hit the hot concrete
of a texas back patio
warmly, they wander across
lightly, they fall in a pattern
leading to an edge
she settles herself there and
the moon looks down
upon her quietly
only half of himself
she ponders the idea
of seeing only part
and wondering what else
might be there
the day has slipped away
as quickly and blindly
as usual, leaving behind
only the memory
of how hot it was
the sky tells her to look
it wants to remind her
that the day was bright and strong
by painting the edges
of her world
the streaks of a sunset
almost gone and forgotten
linger on the horizon
in blue, orange, purple
she wants to soak those in
remember them, cherish them
she wants to capture them
and carry them with her for
she knows that darkness approaches.

Thanks so much to our panelists Dave Cohen from Google Photos, Profesional Landscape Photographer Jeffrey Sullivan, G+ Scavenger Hunt Curator Chrysta Rae and Keith Barrett of Vidcast Network @ http://vidcastnetwork.com.

Fellow host Thomas Hawk and I talked about shooting the North American International Auto Show this week in Detroit on behalf of Ford, which was informative and very shiny! (I like shiny.) See Thomas’s NAIAS Set on Flickr here. Our entire panel weighed in on some interesting news stories including Mike Shaw‘s write up on long exposure photography and the Lee Big Stopper filter, Jeremy Cowart‘s post on a new type of camera from CES, Leodor Selenier‘s post on the photography of Kim Keever, and more.
