RUBY GLASS


I have had the great luck of having daughter Serina home before and after she went to London.
Being eager to learn I snapped her to help me making more tile pictures of my macros.
Gunnar slowly drag me into using manual handling of his camera
They both take me one step at a time.
These pix are shot with me only using one "steering wheel" on the camera.
Next time I'll go for three
Selected Poems by Emily Dickinson
For Serina

I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.

I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.

Love your Emily Dickinson poem. "I never saw the sea; Yet know I how the heather looks, And what a wave must be."

The pink brocade in the upper right corner catches my eye. So pretty! The books are a welcome addition to all the crafts.

Good for you learning more and more about your camera, Felisol. How great it is that Serina is helping you with the photos and Gunnar helping you learn to use the settings on the camera. What a team!

Isn't Emily Dickinson wonderful?

There is a delicate charm to the items in the picture. Like the subtle look of elegance and simplicity at the same time. The poem has such feeling, a simple view of life to go with he pictures. Wonderful photo and sentiments!

Very pretty collage, Felisol. That's nice that your daughter and husband are helping you with the camera.

I also enjoy Emily Dickinson.

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

The collage looks great. And I love the Emily Dickinson poem. I live near Amherst, Massachusetts, which is Emily country! Her house and garden are wonderful to visit. I've begun an annual pilgrimage there every Spring, when the dogwoods are in bloom.

Awesome collage of rubies!

Olga said...

what a wonderful collection! Now I want to learn how to put photos together that way :)

Carletta said...

Another wonderful collage!
I got a new camera for Christmas and I've only used the auto. So many bells and whistles to learn. Each image in the collage has great merit on its own.

A lovely collage of red! I love all the red glasses. Romantic and sweet.

Robin said...

Such lovely shots, and even more lovely in collage. My favorite is the stained glass in the top left corner. I'd love to see more of that one.

Hi Felisol, I see you are way ahead of the game with RT. You did excellent with the collage, and the sepia below. I might have to learna some of these tricks.
Your Emily Dickinson poem is nice as well.
Not sure if I will have time to do RT this week/today or not, I have a lot of comments to answer. Thank you for yours and sorry I'm late getting here.

Sounds like you are having a fine time learning more photography tricks! Love the ruby red photo collage and the poem, too!

Gattina said...

Nice red collage !

Amrita said...

Very classy arrangement Felisol. You really have that eye and taste.

I couldn 't do the Ruby post this time...was too pre-occupied...so gave it a miss.

The poem speaks of trust. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.

Jan said...

Wonderful collection. I really like the collage, you're doing such a great job!

spiCes said...

Kitchenmaus said...

Seems you have a bright and lively room there! Thanks for sharing the poem too!

Debbie said...

I love the arrangements of those pictures. Maybe you could give me some lessons. Too bad you didn't live closer so we could get together for a cup of coffee and I'd make some Norwegian waffles. I love Emily Dickinson's poetry.

Mojo said...
