Our Father ..

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.

A Lifetime Of Memories * 9/11 forever

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 ..”

Clearing Up The Mystery

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”

Turkeys and Other City Birds

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”

Summer Is A State of Mind

I took these photos on or near the pier S I, NY USA Just because it is almost October, that doesn’t mean you can not visit the beach again Walk on the sand, but don’t go in the water— there are probably no lifeguards around.

The bridge is closed to traffic on that day and there are parades of people and the seven original cars that first crossed the bridge.  Nice parade, great day.

If You Must ………..

Smiles,  if you must have an addiction of some sorts, go in the direction of books and of libraries and of book stores .  You can’t go wrong  with this kind of stuff.  And the only side effects of this addiction are knowledge, wisdom, education, socialization, fun, science, art, and all wonderful things in the world.     And mostContinue reading “If You Must ………..”

Sometimes the …

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.  These guys are heavy as a car or sometimes even heavier .    Don’t be walking around these guys even if they do seem peaceful-looking.Continue reading “Sometimes the …”

Just Old …

with Summer Approaching…

It is going to be quite some time before the tomatoes become visible on the plants.  (This picture is from last year or the year before that.     In the photo, there is a combination of home tomatoes, a store tomato and a friend’s tomato. I remember the day that I got to tasteContinue reading “with Summer Approaching…”

So, is it Tomato Time?

It’s almost time, right ?  Some plant tomatos in May, some in April.  But if you have planted them already, they do survive if you keep them indoors.   I’ve planted some seeds into small containers, indoors, and I planted them almost a month ago. (Too soon, right? ) .   They are still aliveContinue reading “So, is it Tomato Time?”

Is it Art? ….

Smiles.

So,

Pictures and Links

Decades ago, I took photographs during a television show, years later, I put some of them together and created an abstract kind-of picture.   Sometimes speaking out with pictures can have a totally different meaning than speaking out directly in words. More pictures are below this link here.   (This link goes to one ofContinue reading “Pictures and Links”

Think Summer!!

Remembering the flowers of summer ….. Most of them are not around yet, some hibernating as bulbs underground, others just hiding as woody plants.. This one flower stays all winter long.

Photography Birds

I’d been there a number of times before but, before this I had never, ever seen turkeys there.  For the most part, I took one of my granddaughters on the road trip to distant place to see the wildlife that lived in the area.    There ere cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers ,chickadees, sparrows, squirrels, chipmunks, andContinue reading “Photography Birds”

San Sebastian, Puerto Rico and Adventures

The Recipe..

Signs of a Good Instructor

Some of the signs of a good instructor:   They have the right focus – they teach the subject that they are being paid to teach.  They stick to the topic.  They do not go off on tangents or on rants because of their own personal views.  They leave their personal lives and personal choices outContinue reading “Signs of a Good Instructor”

Photography Blocks

Things that I remember to do, when I remember to do them.
