Can you see the mountain?



What the human eye observes casually and incuriously, the eye of the camera notes with relentless fidelity.

I really like these last few photos and quotes, Dawn. You are bringing into view what might otherwise have been overlooked. Beautiful!

Oh yes. Wonderfully done.

So tell us which one it is. It looks kind of Mt. Hood-ish, but could be St. Helen's or Rainier??? Great pix. The uniqueness reminds me of Richard Estes' painitng of turket prints on a muddy, wet road.

Dawn said...

thank you ladies!
it is Mt Rainier Sandy. I want to see that turket print!

That's beautiful! And I wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't told me to look!

Unobservant? Moi?

Jeeese, Dawn. It's TurkeYs (my computer doesn't always spell things the way i'm thinking) and now I'm not sure that the artist was Richard Estes. It's by someone I like, but I'm blaming my memory lapse on the drugs. I'll figure it out soon and send you a link. What happened to the beautiful fish painting that's under your name on Rhonda's blog today?

Thank goodness my mind is returning --- go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puddle_(M._C._Escher)to see M.C. Escher's print of footprints and a puddle. The turkey idea came from a plagerized copy done by a school kid for a November calendar, which showed turkey prints instead of 2 sets of human footprints. The pix won an award before the judges realized it was not an original painting. (AT least Escher and Estes are close together in the alphabet, and I really like both artists' work.)

thanks Jay and Sandy!

Sandy I love that picture of Escher's thanks!
