I love any quote about how we see things in this world. How we perceive things and how life grabs us in the moment. When you look at things do you always accept it at face value or do you dig deeper?
At different moments you see with different eyes. You see differently in the morning than you do in the evening. In addition, how you see is also dependent on your emotional state. Because of this, a motif can be seen in many different ways, and this is what makes art interesting. – Edvard Munch
I took a day trip to Mt. Hood. Which, is one of the reasons I love Portland so much. You can, quite literally, drive from Mountain range to Seashore in a couple hours. Ski and surf? Why not. 🙂 At one of the lakes near the base of Mt. Hood I took this photo from the car. Thought it made a great photo.
…Or “This is a really big blue marble…” Either way, I really liked this photo and thought it was cool do to something special with it.
Another shot from the Chihuly Gardens in Seattle, Washington. This piece really was amazing, such color and intricacies. It really was breathtaking and moving. So many things to see…
This building is in Seattle. Though, you’d never know it by the reflection and the blue skies! Welcome to Pacific Northwest Summer!
Sitting at a bar the other night. I saw this candle. Pretty remarkable, eh?
Wow. Ten years ago, I was preparing to compete for the Mr., Miss, Ms. Gay Oregon Pageant. To ruin the surprise, I won. Surprisingly enough, tonight is my decade celebration and while I tried to convince myself that I could/should just skip the event, I cannot. So tonight, I perform as Nicholas Illusion once again. Here’s hoping I don’t break a hip. 🙂
The thing about performance, even if it’s only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities. – Daniel Day Lewis
