31. Negative Space  Today’s prompt was Negative Space. While I shot a lot of images that would qualify, these two spoke to me. This first one I changed to ‘Negative’ so you can see the positive image on the muslin sheet that the photo is on. Follow this link to explain the largest pinhole camera image ever, The Great Picture.  Negative space is just a fancy way of saying the part of the image that isn’t the subject— the question today would be, is the building the negative space? Or were those fantastic clouds the negative space? These are both taken at Udvar-Hazy Center, Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

Episode 1.4 – The Gathering

aliaslaceygreen:

There are an ENDLESS number of review blogs about every last detail of Outlander, and I have really enjoyed a lot of them. Some are irreverent and humorous efforts at review, some are just solid reviews, some are trying to prove that THEY are the ultimate fan because of X… But this is the first week I have run across this particular blog review. And I KNOW I will be reading it weekly. Spot on and thoughtful!

Before I actually chat about the episode, I’d like to address one little thing that has been niggling at me since Sunday.  There was a very recent article written by a nice enough young man, who commented – or complained, depending on how you look at it – that Outlander was moving at a much slower pace than he would like.  He also commented on the lack of sex in the show.  I’d like to speak to that for just a moment.  As another Twitter using fan said, such an attitude speaks to the instant gratification of our modern culture.  We want it all and we want it right now.  I can understand the want for some sexy action – believe me, I am really looking forward to it – but not before it’s time.

Photos! The View from the Passenger Window is SIX!

Happy September! I have a gift for you!  My website, A View From the Passenger Window,

is SIX years old this month!

“Now We Are Six”

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six
now and forever.

And now, for something completely different…. Surprised smile  I hesitate to point out here and now, that CHRISTMAS is only  114 days away.  (No, you may NOT deny this fact. If I have to go along with this reality, so do you. Sorry!)

  • ONE, start your gift shopping NOW, here! Remember, the sale will last throughout the month of September; there is art for everyone!
  • TWO, my Christmas Photo a Day will be BACK on December 1st. A new holiday themed photograph every day in December, since 2008!

Thanks for joining in weekly for my Photo a Day Journey, published right here each Sunday. (This is CY365!)  At the holidays, I shake things up a bit and post a new blog each and every day. Sign up today to receive your Christmas photo each morning in your inbox!

Or, follow me on Facebook; I will post the photos each day there! (If I can make it to 1000 likes before Christmas, there may be a free print in someone’s future. Just sayin’.)
