I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities. --Dr. Seuss

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

Praying

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones, just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

    "Cara is not only a wonderful photographer, she is a wonderful teacher. Generous of heart and spirit she helped me learn about composition and cropping. In my lonely beginning days, she became my contact and she commented faithfully, always positive even though it was not deserved, at times she made suggestions and took the time to help me grow in my craft.

    It is her wonderful nature photos that taught me the most. Cara sees in a way that few others can and shows us a world that few others know is there. Through her magical photos she has taught me to see the beauty in the weed, the glory in a faded bloom, the magic in the delicate seed pod. Cara's photos opened my eyes to the beauty beyond the roses. For that I can not thank her enough. She changed the way I see the world, she taught me to love the dandelion and milkweed seed. So much of what I have become as a photographer, I owe to Cara and her vision. Thank you, Cara, thank you!!

    "It doesn't take long being with Cara's images to realize she creates more than pictures. She enriches her world. To be able to know what the camera can see is special, but to know what the soul sees, and can feel, is mastery. Enjoy this master's works."

    "Cara was one of my earliest friends on Flickr, and is largely responsible for the way I look at things when I'm out looking for photo-ops.

    She has a unique eye for the simple beauty that can be found in nature and life, and when I thought I knew her work pretty well, I discovered her world of abstracts!

    A little moody at times, (sigh), but ALWAYS a pleasure to view!!!

    Pull up a chair, pour a drink, and discover Cara's world...it's a beautiful one!!!"

    "Cara never stops to amaze me with her beautiful detailed images of nature. She has a gift to capture nature in all its aspects, especially the 'unseen' by many of us...
    Cara posts work on a very regular basis and I'm always looking forward to go view her 'contribution of the day'!"

    "Cara
    An eye for detail
    sharp detail
    sharp exacting
    thoroughgoing detail
    macro or micro or mega
    only what fits into an image
    an eye
    for natural beauty
    showing us her world
    things we pass by
    things we step over
    and on
    an eye for form
    a weaver of light
    and color
    weaver of images
    that one can warmly
    wrap themselves in
    her shuttle moving through
    the important threads of life
    seeker, seeker of beauty
    oh honest beauty
    flows from the lens
    honestly focusing our eyes
    to the intricate world
    that lies beneath our feet
    leading us to the truth
    without a sermon or a song
