This is a tough one to pull off, especially after a full year of all sorts of photographic highs and lows…  The collection I’m sharing on this post is a taste of 2012; a sliver of the many events I captured on camera.  It’s been an incredibly challenging yet empowering year for many of us and I’m glad a new year waits in the wings. My wish for 2013 is that we all follow our hearts dreams with enthusiasm, and develop the resilience to overcome all barriers when they arise. What are your wishes for next year?

Lady Liberty…
Mine, cast in stone, struggles free

Copper, Wrought Iron
Her old clothes… tossed casually

Suffering Lady
On a painful pedestal
Dashed dreams… Hopes for peace

Why is it significant? She stands for the hope, fears and tears many immigrants live with in a new land. She is the epitome of the hopeful and the hopeless cocooned by a tough exterior that hides life’s disappointments and pain… There is opportunity in the distance. More below

Endless gossip about nonsense

It’s my prerogative…

Bobby BrownMy Prerogative

How we live our lives
Look, it’s our prerogative
Toe the line or… go

A friend shared a decision about a difficult relationship and all the clamoring others made. It brought back memories and prompted this haiku; with a title to make us chill out and smile or relax a bit…  You know, humor helps with heavy stuff.  Sometimes, relationships flounder or end, even in blog land, and we must respect the shifting winds, put out the fire, or set our sails elsewhere.
