Here are a few she thinks the gentle reader might find interesting.
Just the name itself is worth a visit, but Ruben Fletcher does great sketches, too, like this one.
"They might be three generations, or three friends, or three strangers. I like not knowing. It brings me into the process. It makes me look harder."
Walhydra recommends exploring this site at length, including the links to Sketchers and Other Artistes. Beautiful sketch work...and a marvelous, dry sense of humor.
Keith Lanpher Photography
CrackSkullBob's site led Walhydra to Keith Lanpher's photography. A wide range of topics. Nice work.
"Yesterday I had a late afternoon shoot on Wallops Island, a beautiful little place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I was shooting a portrait for magazine from a tower and after I finished I couldn’t help but point the camera towards some of the winter scenery."
"Made this picture a couple years ago in Portsmouth. I get the concept, but it still seems a little odd."
"I was dog walking recently and found this foggy view in an area near my house called The Hague. Nice the duck cooperated with the composition. I know this is a bit of an idyllic post card image, but that’s what was there, and what’s there not to quietly appreciate?"
Feathers, Geodes, & Old Lace
A beautiful array of image, quotations, found objects, etc. Erica W. Adams has this quotation on her blog profile:
"We must strive moment to moment to practice a taxonomy of different forms of understanding, different forms of change, dependent perhaps upon resemblance and seeming substitutability-- figuration-- rather than on the self-identical category of truth." Gayatri Spivak, Feminism and Critical Theory
And so it is.
Oy! Walhydra just had to conk herself on the head, because she forgot to include her best and longest-known Virgo friend, journalist, photographer and computer guru Jay Gross, and his Foto Artista site (and colleagues).
Walhydra wouldn't be Walhydra without Jay's inspiration. (Um...that's meant as a compliment, Jay, in case you were wondering.)
