There is an interesting interview on the WordPress blog with Steve McCurry on the subject of blogging.
His images are so strong, they don’t require writing. I love the way he posts about a topic…like Reading…and has beautiful images from all over the world that illustrate the topic. There is no doubt that he is an amazing photographer with great vision.

Here’s one on Reading:

Iconic Photographer Steve McCurry Talks Blogging and WordPress.

During the Thanksgiving weekend, many artists show their work in their homes around the Village.

I was able to sneek out for a quick peek at my favorites and I wanted to share two of them.

I visited Mary and Ken Goodrich’s home and loved their latest folios. They were exquisitely printed  sets of black and white images. They are truly a talented couple and very generous in sharing knowledge.

I’ve been admiring is Rising Mist, one of Mary’s images. I now am a proud owner of a matted print.

The image is on her home page. Here’s a link to Mary’s site: And a link to their photo retreat site:

Lisa Louise Adams is one of the most productive artists I know. She made these fun mini-vases – hundreds of them. I had to have one and found that it’s perfect to display tiny, delicate cigar flowers. Here’s a link to her site:

I’ve been enjoying Kat Sloma’s photography blog. She so generously shares information about photography with helpful lessons that inspire. Recently, she organized a postcard swap called Liberate Your Art 2012. The instructions were simple, you send in six cards with postage to Kat in Corvallis, Oregon. I’m not sure how she did this, but she mailed each of the 193 artists five cards plus one of hers.

Here are the stats of participation:
1152 individual pieces of art liberated
193 artists participating
11 countries represented

Here are the wonderful cards I received.

The card with the four happy singing birds  was from Joanna Crompton in New Zealand who contacted me via Facebook. Here’s a link to her blog: I was able to send her a postcard and hope to keep in touch with her by following her blog and FB posts.

Please let me know if you sent the other cards I received. I will add your info to this post.

I love that these artists came together with nothing more than an interest in sharing. Thank you, Kat Sloma!

It is in Mustang in Nepal where Luigi Fieni took these beautiful images of the pristine landscape. I was so moved by them, that I searched out more of his work and found the Room of 1000 Demons on the Photo Eye site. They reminded me of the dancers I photographed in Bhutan during the tsuchu. He captured the movement in abstract form that is brilliant in a still photograph.

I love his piece  called “What Am I Doing Here?” speaking about the Himalayas… “In the silence of the mountains I have discovered true voice and creative expression.”
