Still, In Experimental Stages This past year, I started using a Chromebook since I had accidentally ruined my favorite computer, the Apple Air.

On the wall in our home, there is a place for two of my favorite things… There’s this very beautiful, framed plaque with a totally cool calligraphy-style prayer on it. Our Father .. that’s it. This is one of my favorite prayers. I love it so much for many reasons.

There is an organization of parrot owners that gets togetherContinue reading “The Parrot Picnic !”
I lived less than 9 minutes away from the World Trade Center. For me, the WTC Plaza and the bookstore there, were some of my safe spaces, safe places, in my own city. They were places to retreat to, to see concerts in, to enjoy ‘the city’ without venturing too far into the city. MD, Continue reading “A Lifetime Of Memories * 9/11 forever”

I Photograph Life And Everything In Between It’s funny how photography and life can be so different. I really like this picture. But if you set it in front of four photographers (smiles, or even one), they will probably tell you just how many things are wrong with the picture. Yet, if I change oneContinue reading “Smiles, All Photographs Are Good Photographs ..”
FIRST IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME… to get used to it.. But after a little bit, it works out just fine. I’m not big on Chrome, and then after using it, I found out that a few things were missing.

The entry in which I clear up the mystery ©2019lperry artfromperry One Of The Key Things Missing Is the ‘persistence’ or the ‘continued’ words. A lot of people think that name-calling and or being verbally rude to someone or making fun of someone is bullying. But think about this, most children, kids or evenContinue reading “Clearing Up The Mystery”
I really miss photographing birds. It’s been ages since I’ve gone out to photograph the birds, any birds. The picture of the birds here (above), I took one day while I went out to the supermarket. There was this puddle . Someone was feeding the birds there, from their car. And, it is illegal toContinue reading “Turkeys and Other City Birds”

To me, the most beautiful thing about Cherry Blossom trees are the flower showers, all the pretty pink petals covering the grass and the surrounding area. I wish the blossoms would stay on the trees longer than they do. And then, in the fall, there are all those totally cool Cherry Blossom leaves.
An excerpt from, “How to Help the Children” (subtitle, “Help Keep Them Alive” ) “It’s all about the perfect, the spotless child and the clean home.

Yes, I kno, horrible photographs of the animals. Taken from the car on a commercial safari in the park. But they are loose there. To me, too dangerous.
