A Life’s Quest

Life – Circus – Death

psx_20160926_232807-02

That is the title of Bill Forchion’s one man show.  The show depicts important pieces of his life in the persona of his alter ego, Soupbone the Clown.  The theme of the show was to follow your dreams.  Do not jut sit there and wait for things to happen but go out and make it happen!

Bill is my cousin and remembering him as a kid and seeing him now living his life is inspiritation to me.  To go out and make things happen.

Bill allowed me the pleasure of taking photographs of him before and during the show.  It was interesting to see how he applies his make-up with such precision.

I hope you like the photos!

I am on a quest to improve my photography and I welcome constructive critiques.

Thanks for visiting!

What’s an Orpel?

I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia and Oscar the other day, they are Orpels. Orpels are little orange beings that like to have fun. 

They love to visit other bloggers photographs so they can explore the world and learn new things.  But most importantly they like to meet  new people.  

I had the pleasure of hosting Olivia and Oscar for a visit the other day. They played hide-and-seek in one of my pictures from Copper River Park.

If you give permission they will travel thru your pictures for a nice day trip of exploring and playing.  (You will be given credit for the photo and a link to your page.)

You can also get a badge for hosting the Orpels.

Drop their guardian Marcy a comment if you would like the Orpels to visit. 

WP Photo Challenge: Adventure

WP PHOTO CHALLENGE: ADVENTURE

While vacationing on OBX island (Outer Banks,  North Carolina) it was always an adventure to get up each morning with my father at 5:45 am and walk the beach with his other 2 children,  Bojangels and Ebony to watch the sun rise

Most of the time I sat and took hundreds of pictures.

Another venture that interest me is working on post processing of the pictures that I have taken. 

Below are two versions of the above picture that I edited on my phone using Snapseed.

The 2nd picture is edited with HDR effects and the 3rd one is converted to black and white with HDR effects.

Which do you prefer?

As always thank you for visiting and your comments.

At a family get together this weekend. everyone’s was so happy!

It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

[Chorus:]
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why

[Chorus]

Hey, come on

[Bridge:]
(happy)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing bring me down
I said

[Chorus 2x]

Hey, come on

(happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… my level’s too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

[Chorus 2x]

Come on
