Golden Ponies in the Evening Glow of Sunset photography

Golden Ponies in the Evening Glow of Sunset photography by CheyAnne Sexton

I sometimes see stories in my mind’s eye that I want to write down or write about.  Yet life, real life, my-real-life gets so full of everything I want to do, that blogging doesn’t seem to be high on the honey-doo list, (yes I have one for myself) ( but only in my head).

So I don’t blog, but it has been in my thoughts lately and that’s how things come into my life.  Is giving them thoughts and wonder and what-ifs.

and suddenly 2 of the newsletters I follow are about blogging challenges:

March 24, 2013

from Laura Trevey over at Bright Bold & Beautiful‘s fun and informative blog she had a giveaway and I won an amazing print of hers.

Bright Bold & Beautiful

I really had no idea  and I even sent congrats to the winners.  I had not even seen my name down at the bottom of the poster she made.  I felt a little silly when she told me I was a winner.  How thrilling.  and then I got my great package in the mail on Friday and Wowza:

Bright Bold & Beautiful

Bright Bold & Beautiful

thank you Laura.

And I’ve been working on the anemone a bit last week and finished it up.  Loving the translucently and the rich dark purples making it almost black,

Sweet Anemone

with little sparkles of white paper shining like light on the dark stamens in the middle of this incredible flower.  They call these ‘wind flowers’ as well.  I love that name.

According to the Oxford English DictionaryGreek anemōnē means “daughter of the wind”, from ánemos “wind” + feminine patronymic suffix -ōnē.[4]The name “windflower” is used for the whole genus as well as the wood anemone A. nemorosa.[5]  from Wikipedia.

July 15, 2012

on a little roadtrip or two,

Went out lookin for ponies and watching my honey fish with this great big Series L Lens, you know one of those big white ones you see all the photogs on TV  use.   You just really wish you could get your hands on one of those.  Just to see the difference between, big money lenses and what you have on your camera (even tho you love them to no-ends)

Well I rented one and for 2 days I got to play in my backyard……
