Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - Aug 9 - Steeples in the Storm

Photo a Day – Aug 9 – Steeples in the Storm

Whew! I am back from vacation and trying to catch up with myself! I did the project each day, but did not post. Yes, I have some work ahead. But, to me, it is worth it. I made this photograph the day before leaving for the beach. In fact, I made it while waiting for

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - Aug 8 - Vacation Anticipation

Photo a Day – Aug 8 – Vacation Anticipation

Let’s see … translate legalese about delinquent real estate tax sale laws into practical English or think about how close I am to making photographs on the beach? I compromised, which is the art of the work I do, and set up a little seashell still life by my House Bill 1409 binder. Between revisions

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - Aug 7 - Beach Dream

Photo a Day – Aug 7 – Beach Thoughts

The last time I walked along a beach, my daughter, Becca, now 24, was six or seven years old. As things happen, Becca and I are heading off to the beach early Saturday. Naturally, being at the shore with an adult daughter will be much different than being at the beach with a little girl

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - Aug 6 - What's My Next Step?

Photo a Day – Aug 6 – What’s my Next Step? (or the similarities of painting and policymaking)

This is me, well it is a photograph of my foot, to be precise, in my studio, pondering my next step on a painting in the Marshlands Collection, an abstract series of paintings that I started earlier this year. Painting is about solving problems, even if you do start from a sketch, which I typically

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - Aug 5 - Summer Blues

Photo a Day – Aug 5 – Summer Blues

The title has nothing to do with feeling “blue.” Rather, it is so named for the color. I do love these brilliant blues and back lit greens and I love the sounds of the water and birdsong, and my own breathing, when I am running with the river. Here is a close up of the

Photography by Christine Goldbeck - Photo a Day - Aug 4 - Creative Time (a still life)

Photo a Day – Aug 4 – An Artist’s Date

Sundays are all about a good workout, some chores and kicking back to make art and engage in creative playtime, as recommended by Julia Cameron. The artist’s date, wherein the artist engages with the self, is more about mischief, Cameron advises. It is a time to play, to imagine … I do them as often

Photo a Day – Aug 3 – Retro Butterfly (the art and craft thereof)

Boxes make me crazy! I prefer to operate outside of them and when I have to play within them, I often find ways to think of news ways to use the box 😉 So, I have never quite bought into either argument about whether photography is an art or a craft. This is probably because

Photo a Day by Christine Golbeck - Aug. 2 - My Hiding Spot

Photo a Day – Aug 2 – My “Secret Garden”

Remember the book “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett ? I read it and re-read it and, you know what?, I think I want to read it now as an adult. Oh, I know, I can watch the movie, but, as a little girl, I found magic in that story. In some ways, I was

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - August 1 - Night Garden

Photo a Day – August 1 – Night Garden

Because the sun goes down and nighttime shows up does not mean we have to put away our cameras. In fact, nighttime can be one of the most fun and most professionally rewarding times of day to make photographs. Usually, by the end of the day, I am finishing a painting in the studio, reading

Photo a Day – July 31 – A Familiar Spot

January 15 it was, when the tree in this photograph caught my attention. It looks a lot different with its summer finery, eh? As on that mid-January day, I was on my lunchtime walk and I thought I would see what the tree looks like these days. When I rounded the curve and saw the

Photo a Day – July 30 – Susquehanna Sundown

Give me water, give me changing light and my cameras and I am happier than ecstatic. Of course, I could be the same way with a canvas and paint or a really great novel. Sunup and sundown are favorite events in a day and I could watch them EVERY day of my life. They are

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 28 - Nap

Photo a Day – July 28 – Nap with Book

  I have always enjoyed a 20-minute nap, but I have not always needed them. Lately, dealing Hashimoto’s Disease, wherein my thyroid does not function well, my naps are a must-do and they tend to last longer than the average 20-minute nap. I am only three-months in to my treatment so I cannot expect to be

Photo a Day – July 26 – Summer Along the Susquehanna

The motion and the rhythm of this exposure are what convinced me to choose it as the photo du jour. Days like this make me happy to have two strong legs and a will to explore what I should consider familiar territory, having spent 16 years walking out here. Yet, I don’t. I view each
