Holiday Lights

Holiday Lights

Who says you need a mountain of snow and a fat guy in a red suit to have Christmas? Despite the fact that I moved away from my family and snowy Detroit many moons ago, I’ve never had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit. I’m over the whole commercial aspect of this blessed … Continue reading

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Today while visiting the salon, my belief that “you don’t look like a Soldier!” is the best compliment a woman in my field can receive! Heaven knows I love my job and am extremely proud of the uniform I wear but the military does have a way of stripping you of a large part of … Continue reading

Crime and a Camera

Crime and a Camera

While scanning my usual social media sites I stumbled upon this image (which turned out to be a photo series rather than a single collage of images as presented below) and thought it was too captivating not to share with the rest of the bloggersphere. Erik Ravelo, a Cuban artist who delves in sculpting, painting … Continue reading

I Am What I Am

‘Storm’ the Art Gallery

I love when people find ways to put a fun and creative spins on famous works of art. With all due respect to the original creator, once an image has been seen hundreds of times (in my opinion) it sort of loses it’s wow factor and draw. It is then when kids start to dread … Continue reading

Made You Look

I knew I wasn’t the only kid on the planet that wondered what things would look like if I was blessed with x-ray vision. I wouldn’t have used my super power for anything creepy or peeping tom-ish, I’d just wondered what everything looked like once the outside parts were transparent; for example, what does the … Continue reading

Drugs In A Can

Wouldn’t it be a sweet day in medical advances when you can stop by a vending machine to get a refill on your prescriptions? I mean think about it; what if physicians handed out cards that carried your authorized prescriptions and you simply swipe it in a machine and you get what you need. No … Continue reading

Edible Art

New York based photographer Massimo Gammacurta took a common form of self expression (wire art) and replaced wire hangers with candy. “Lolli Pop” features trademark logos we all know and love re-done in edible form. The idea for this sugary concept stemmed from a popular photo spread Gammacurta did for Wired Magazine involving candy numbers. Sadly … Continue reading
