the splat that started everything

My goal, during my 2012/13 52-week arts sabbatical, was to become more aware…seeing, feeling, listening, focusing and documenting…starting with the obvious. Walking, writing and carrying my camera helped with this enhanced awareness. When I was taking photos of the 52 Montezuma Bald Cypress trees, at Fairmount Park for my “52” exhibit, I spent a lot of time looking up (the trees are 70 ft tall!) One day I looked down…talk about starting to notice the obvious.

I had a BIRD POOP ART exhibit as part of my “52” exhibition and it was one of the most popular parts of my exhibition. ENJOY!
