. . . think about composition, line and design. The second issue of my eZine, "VisuaLeigh" is out and available for just $5. Seventeen short, quick articles about designing images, finding the movement in your own work, and more.
Here's the link to my online store: http://shop.carolleigh.net/main.sc and here's a link for more information: http://visualeigh.blogspot.com/2013/05/issue-2-of-visualeigh-e-zine-now.html

. . . hang around in a softly faded aloha shirt.
Both of these were photographed in store windows. The first, photographed on the Balboa Peninsula, looked like it had been in the window since 1963. I photographed the red shirt in Lahaina, Maui. ©Carol Leigh

It probably comes as no surprise to you that I have an oil can collection. It's just a small collection, nothing valuable, but a collection I treasure nevertheless because I love photographing these things! The latest member of the collection is there in the top photo, middle can. He cost less than $8 and has a wonderful patina. A very cute little guy. Fair warning: more oil can photos will probably follow in the next few months as I have my way with these. ©Carol Leigh

I have a little stash of star-shaped beads. I selected three and placed them on some paper I'd used to clean my paintbrushes. I like the warm, overall golden brown tones here. ©Carol Leigh

As you can see, I've been working in the square format a lot lately and I've been experimenting with bold, vibrant colors, creating abstracts that (I hope) get your attention right away. All have been created with my photos of boat textures, photos of paper I've used to clean my paintbrushes, photos of rust, and some plain texture here and there. I'm thinking these would look great printed on metal (oh, boy!).
These are named (from top to bottom) "The Deep End," "Sunstorm No. 2," "Sunstorm," and "Sky Into The Sea." Thank you for taking a look at my work. ©Carol Leigh
