Home is where the heart is,
a camera is an artist's heart -
every shutter-click is a heart beat.

“I realize I don’t know very much. 
 None of us knows very much. 
 But we can all learn more. 
 Then we can teach one another. 
 We can stop denying reality 
or hoping it will go away by magic.” 

 “All that you touch You Change. 
 All that you Change Changes you. 
 The only lasting truth Is Change."
 ~ Octavia Butler

Photographs: Flower Macro Life, Close-up of a Flower's Heart'

"Flowers Macro Life, Close-Up of a Flowers Heart" (series)
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
Location: Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California,
Camera: Nikon D3100 
Conditions: Natural light, Sunset, Wind, no flash, no tripod
Story: Photographs try to capture 
the light of life within Nature, 
and even if this essence of the living 
is held for a brief moment 
in this dimension of artistry,
the light within the seeds of life spread 
and move from two dimensional encasement
of the photograph's imagery 
into the multi-dimensional eyes of the beholder."
~ K. L. Atkinson

"I think your mythology would call them fallen angels. 
War and hate are their business, 
and one of their chief weapons is un-Naming - 
making people not know who they are. 
If someone knows who he is, 
really knows, 
then he doesn't need to hate ... 

There are still stars 
which move in ordered and beautiful rhythm. 
There are still people 
in this world who keep promises ... 
That’s enough to keep my heart optimistic, 
no matter how pessimistic my mind. 
And you and I have good enough minds 
to know how very limited and finite they really are. 
The naked intellect is an extraordinarily inaccurate instrument ... 
We don’t have to know everything at once. 
We just do one thing at a time, as it is given us to do.” 
~ Madeleine L'Engle
