I made this photo last August and first presented it as a lustre float wrap during the month of October in the Oakley Auditorium Gallery at Ivy Tech Community College-Wabash Valley in Terre Haute, Indiana. It is on display through February at the Halcyon Art Gallery in Terre Haute. For exhibit I titled it “A Tenacious Nature.”
Captured this camouflaged critter warming up in the morning sun atop a garden statue in my front yard. Maybe the fact that it hears through its belly explains why I was able to sneak up or it?
I used the Fujifilm Finepix T555 I bought my daughter to take on her summer class trip. The pocket camera has 16 megapixels and a 12x zoom. The grasshopper has tiny single lenses in the thousands x2 and a 20x broad jump.
I’m gonna live where the green grass grows
Watchin’ my corn pop up in rows ~ Tim McGraw (Jess Leary/Craig Wiseman)
Ok, it’s not my corn but I own it in my mind.
I stepped from the green grass in my backyard into the cornrows to watch the clouds dance across the field of blue above me.
Like a child, I sat down to greet the cornrows on their own level. The roots looked a bit parched so I stood up and did a little dance of my own.
One with the corn, I reached alongside the 10-foot stalks to fight for my share of the life-sustaining light and warmth of a late-July sun.
Rain this morning on the corn silk in the field behind my house.
