In search of creative growth, this blog was designed to encourage the personal betterment of those who enjoy photography as a hobby. Each month's new theme can encourage us to see the world in a different way. We all view things differently. The diversity we enjoy can fuel the creative spirit. It is hoped that we can all glean something from one another.

Frabjous - (frab-juhs) - adjective

Defined as wonderful, superb, elegant or delicious. Coined by Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking Glass; perhaps meant to suggest fabulous or joyous. Do we not feel wonderful or joyous about something we ourselves have created? Hopefully this blog will encourage us to create something frabjous!

Here is how it works. Each month will have a new theme to stimulate creative thinking. We invite people to make suggestions for upcoming themes. The month prior, you can vote for the theme you would like out of four listed. The rules are simple. No rules really. The idea is to get us to think and be mindful of the theme for the month. Take photos that relate to that theme. (However, if you have a really great shot that was taken at another time, use it.) No photo police here. Any camera will do. Even phones with cameras are pretty good these days and they are always handy. Also, if a filter or cropping enhances your photo, go for it. The digital age has given us flexibility that we should take advantage of. One to five photos can be submitted for the blog. Interpretation is up to each individual. We welcome comments.

Theme suggestions and photos can be submitted to Submissions must be made no later than the last day of each month. Photos will be posted as received throughout the month. Happy snapping!

Dramatic Sky!

This is definately one of my, Sparrow's, favorites.  The sky is an ever-changing painting.  Sometimes it really leans toward the dramatic, as in this photos taken by Tom.

A Warm Breeze!

One of my favorite things to enjoy in the summer is a warm breeze.  Even though it is not summer yet, yesterday's temperatures in the 80's afforded me the opportunity to enjoy it early.  Since I couldn't photograph the breeze, I took a photo of the breeze creating ripples on a pond.

It was a gorgeous day!
