I’m taking a long break from my writing here at the blog, to finish some creative projects. 

I’ll be posting some of my favorite photos and photo-tunes in this spot. (Ziggy Marley, today). Thanks, my friends, for sticking around and for giving this space a little heartbeat. 🙂

Dragonflies and damselflies like to return to their same perches repeatedly, so I captured these shots by noticing one of these perches in a public park. I planted myself and focused on the area where this meadowhawk seemed to be returning time and again. [Adjustments include standard raw file edits.]

“Hey Miss Dragonfly, I see you look at me with your beautiful eyes
You must be wondering what type of creature am I.”
