Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Deep within the current
The fragrance of death
The fragrance of life
In all its glory

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. I was blown away by the colors and composition here.

    There is also an intriguing mystery.  While the cross is not as symmetric as I would expect for a DIY marker (a pet’s grave? an accident scene?), it is hard to imagine what else it could be.  What lies beneath the swirling water?

  2. Thank you. Great question! Here is a clue to what it is. It is not as full of mystery as you might imagine and is a bit of a spoiler:

    Favorite duck blind
    A cross marks coveted spot
    Trespassers be warned

    The photo was taken on an angle which explains the asymmetry.

    This would be a great photo for a challenge. I would love to read the stories folks come up with.

  3. <smile> Do you converse in haiku? Love the duck blind mystery. 😉

    How are you liking the a7?

    I now have Joni Mitchell’s “Circle Game” going round and round in my head… life, death, life, death … the everlasting flow.

  4. I had already written the duck blind but it seemed a bit silly so I opted for the Jorio.
    I love the A7. Evidently some photographers are having software problems with a noise reduction algorithm aka “the Star Eater” for astrophotography but I have not had those problems, knock wood. I still think Fuji has the best color but overall I am happy with the Sony and its features. How are you liking your Fuji?
    Love me some Joni.


  5. <chuckle> Sometimes, silly is called for. But the Jorio hits the mark too.

    Love the Fuji. Sometimes I jones a bit for the full-frame, but if I really, really wanted that I’d just drag out the Canon 5D… which I seem to never do. And I just added a new lens — 10-24mm zoom (equivalent to 15-36mm). Haven’t even mounted it on the camera yet. But I have a few weeks off and will be heading into some provincial and national parks… so there should be some good landscapes coming. 🙂

    Schweeeeet! Yeah, now that I am committed, I need to invest in some new glass.

  8. I went first with the longer zoom, 55-200mm (87-300mm), which captured that fab photo of the angel on the Ganges. Also upgraded the kit lens 18-55mm (27-87mm) to the fabulous 16-55mm (24-87mm) before going to India. Heavy, yes, but CRISP focus.

    Until Fuji comes up with something wider than 10mm, about the only glass I’m considering is an upgrade on the longer zoom, and maybe a few fast primes in oft-used focal lengths (35, 50, 80 — ish).
