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

Photographs: Venice Art Crawl Street Party : LA #afterburn2017

#afterburn 2017
by Karin Lisa Atkinson 
Location: Venice Beach / Los Angeles California
Camera: Nikon D3100
 Conditions: Day/Night ambient light, no flash, no tripod

"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

"Here, there's no music here 
I'm lost in streams of sound 
Here, am I nowhere now? 
No plan 
 Wherever I may go 
Just where 
Just there 
I am 

 All of the things that are my life 
My desires, my beliefs, my moods 
Here is my place without a plan 

 All the things that are my life 
My my moods, my beliefs, my desires, me alone 
Nothing to regret 
This is no place, but here I am 
This is not quite yet" 

Excerpt quote from his song "No Plan"
