Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Creative Prompt #4 – Burn it all

This week’s Lee Sargent “creative prompt” is “Burn It All”. I struggled to come up with a good idea for this, and I didn’t have the time to experiment with some of the artistic thoughts that passed through my mind which I knew would be challenging to implement. Instead, I ended up cheating a bit: this is a photo I took near Mt Kosciuszko in 2011 after bushfires had raged through the area. It has now had some post-processing (although it was pretty monochrome to begin with).

Fire, though devastating, can create some surprising beauty.

(Note: I’m afraid I haven’t really followed Lee’s prompt to the letter. To be accurate, this should be titled “Burnt Not Quite All Of It” … but this is nowhere near as poetic or dramatic a title as Lee’s prompt.)

[Production notes: Photo taken with a Canon350D, 28-105mm lens, and then processed by chucking it through a filter in Luminar and twiddling some sliders in a completely unsystematic way until it looked like I’d done something creative!]
