Beauty Within

Beauty within the

Deep hidden in darkness

Strick brilliance

Falling Fences

Falling fences
broken walls
homes of America
dreams bygone ages
now given to hands
lost to those who worked
now a gift to those
of unearned hands
freely without thought
of young children swinging
let us repair a dream
gift our own and thiers
then watch the gifts
to others come
freely and many


Freeform Poem by Karen S Smith 2018


What’s in a picture

but a thousand words

spoken only in colored vision

expressed by mirror of hidden thoughts

What’s in a picture

an image caught

living beyond the expressed idea

uncertain but there

What’s in a picture

the love of the person

giving his soul

to the moment of the shot

What’s in a picture

life worth living.

Flower Photo Shot a Child’s Eye

Hi all with spring being here we took a field trip and photo shot today.  I decided the best way to do this was to pick a subject and stick with one.  Which worked quiet well.   Maegan took photo’s of flowers this time and of course did not stick with garden flowers.  The weeds flowers caught her eye as well it often does with a child.

She used my camcorder which has I am sorry to say but a small amount of pixel so it does not allow for the best of sharing photo’s but it gave her and idea on how to zoom in and out.  How to wait for focus as of course I have it set on automatic adjustment for a photo but it was still good practice at getting the photo in frame or finding a frame you want for each shot.

She learned how hard it was to get a distance shot and having to much light in the photo shot.  She got some great shots and next project will be animals but I am going to think of how to refine this assignment and get it to were it will be active but easy to do at first.  Here is the photo’s she took for her first photo assignment.
