a grated bridge, at Washington Crossing State
Park, crossing the Delaware River from New Jersey
This is actually a photo/drawing - a hand drawing
on a photo -of the view looking down onto the bridge.
Click on Bridge
Photo to compare the two. (If you drag the window
or page that opens into the photo, you can view
both at the same time.) The photo you'll see is
an opposite view from this one, so you get the opportunity
for two comparisons - the enhancement and the changing
of direction or perspective.
It's included here today simply because I came across
the photo/drawing the other day and had a "Wow!"
reaction. I love the intensity with the contrasts
in color and darks and lights. I also like the play
of lines and shapes.
Those of you who find the photo/drawing version
dramatic will certainly enjoy a visit, if you have
not yet been there, to my naturesplayground.com
site with all of its photo/drawing art.
SELF-REFLECTING QUERIES -
Looking at the dramatic changes, when comparing
the two photos (even envison them as horizontal),
think of situations in your own life which might
merit being looked at from a different perspective.
The next time you are stuck on something, or feeling
challenged, try a "different view." How
might it look or be in the future? What can you
take from the past that can contribute to your forward
movement? Look to your left and to your right, so-to-speak.
How would people on either side of you be viewing
the same thing? You might even ask them.
As always, have fun with this.
AUDIO TESTIMONIALS -
Check out the new 28
second message from Sondra, who shares how a
custom photo/drawing of her father, done by Sheila,
provided a major breakthrough for her in being able
to get past her many years of grief at his loss,
so that she can now enjoy photos of him.
Tramayne-Barth wrote to say, "When I wanted
to make an audio for Sheila, she made it really
easy for me. She called me and set up a 3 way call
so I could record how wonderful I think her ezine
is and her artwork. I am sure she will do the same
for you. And she didn't even mind the blooper I
made about her art site name. (LOL)."
