This is another "Lost Yosemite" image. After reviewing those images, I decided this one is worthy of posting.
On a different topic, I am taking a portfolio class. Our first assignment is to go out and find two or more books that inspire us. Not necessarily photo or art books. I was wandering around Borders and the book "Magical Secrets about Thinking Creatively" caught my eye. The cover has this wonderful image of a rooster that I had seen at the de Young Museum. That roosterlooked like it could step off the wall. The other image that caught my eye was a self-portrait by Chuck Close. This a lovely book with extremely interested stories about 13 artists and their creative process.
The first secret: "Cultivate Sensuality – Discovering details of the physicality of materials."
