Flash Back Friday * Working On Artistic Photography Every Opportunity *

Hello my friends

Lyme Disease has me in headlock. My answer is to keep moving forward remembering many have life worse.  As a child I wanted to learn by traveling and documenting everyday experiences. I can’t sing for anyone, it’s that bad. I’ve loved art and taking photos from the age 4-5 years old.  I like many types of art including Contemporary art. I’m a newbie, you may not enjoy this style of photography. Be gentle with your comments.

Verna Falls Yosemite Park, Enjoyed hike going. Coming back not so fun.

This photo makes me feel I’m in untraveled territory as the dust kicks up. They are riding in a rickety stagecoach looking for a better life, life where the money is. I’ve researched my family’s genealogy for years. I get excited when I find a nugget, photos are great.  I’ve documented my family to 1600’s. My distant ancestor’s are from Germany’s Wine country.  I look forward to traveling there. To stand on the same dirt connects me to the past.

    • Hello my friend
      Thank you for the kind words. Even in my worst now and in the past, I never lost my curiosity for other cultures, the surprise of animals not seen before. I’ve been blessed to travel a few places and always bring back something special in my heart. You sound like a kind and faithful man. I am curious how you found my site, I don’t think we’ve meet before.
      The photo of the mountain brings great memories of my gramps. All he would read was western books or watch watch movies. I didn’t care for them but I enjoyed the time with him. I can picture him back in the days of discovery.
      I hope to see you again, take good care of yourself.


      • My Dear, I too am not sure how I came to Your site. But that is not important, is it? 🙂

        I am VERY FOND of Westerns!

        I hate to call You M! Do let us have Your name.

        Love and Regards. Yesudas.

      • My name is Melinda, my nickname on WP is Warrior, shortened to M. Can you help me with saying your name? In my head your name sounds like Ye-su-das. I look forward to checking out your site. It’s 11.30PM, past my bedtime.
        Hope to talk with you tomorrow.


      • My Dear Melinda, Thank You for writing. My internet pack had expired, and it took quite a while to put it right, and then I had to go out… Oh, You know.

        About pronouncing my name:

        The ‘Ye’ is pronounced as ‘Yay, ‘Day,’ etc.

        The ‘su’ has to come softly. The closest I could get for pronouncing it is in the word ‘Tsunami!’ But without any touch of the letter T. So pronounce the ‘su’ as You would ‘tsu.’

        The ‘D’ in the das is also a soft sound, to be pronounced as the ‘th’ in The, This, That, etc.

        The final ‘as’ has to come out as in ‘Class,’ ‘Bass,’ etc.

        Hope that helped!

        Love. More later. 🙂

    • Thank you for the kind words. I’m surprised how many people liked the effects. I thought the waterfall would more attention. I’m happy if anyone likes my photos. The waterfall is a memory of when I did climb mountains instead of walking with a cane. God has a plan and I’ll follow His plan. I have started my Lyme Journal Entry. I’m so behind. I can’t complain, I’m alive and feel better than yesterday.
      Look forward to seeing you soon.
      Have a great day.
