Bastet and Photography

I’m of course not Bastet, but I write and blog in her name.  I began blogging on the second day of January.  One of my friends asked me for an article about Mali, which at that moment was going through some pretty bad times.

I thought I’d just more or less write about my experiences in life, something that I could leave my children and grandchildren when I proceeded my voyages beyond our time and space.

I  discovered I could write poems, short stories and fell in love with photography!  So from challenge to challenge, I began to grow as a photographer.  Oh, I’m not a pro and never will be, I’m as the Italians would say an appassionata  I’ve linked the various meanings for the word, and you can choose whichever you like!

I now also have a feature  with We Drink Because We’re Poets which comes out three times a week with the parent name “Bastet’s Pixelventures”!  I write a Tuesday prompt post, then do a post called “Pixelventures’ Photo Finish” which I use to present the results of the week’s participation and on Saturday I write “Pixelventures’ Close-up”,  where I write about photographers and photography.

I love getting  interesting shots of the area I live in, which is Trentino-Alto Adige, in Italy on the Austrian and Swiss border and specifically in a small village called Bolognano of Arco.  I also love to experiment with apps to take reality out of my photographs like this one:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

or maybe this:

Although I do like some of the more traditional shots too, like this:

totem

Uhm…well…

So where will I go from here?

Couldn’t say, but we’ll soon find out!

Oh, by the way, my name is Georgia S. Koch and I’m 61 years old here’s a picture of me taken with my web cam!

I also blog on The13th Floor Paradigm, with 12 other poets and which like me, is a work in progress!

Hope you find something interesting here, and don’t hesitate to comment…it’s one of those things that really brings spice into blogging!

Ciao!  Bastet!

  1. Hi Georgia,
    Thanks forstopping by today. I have only just been experimenting with some effects this week. In the past I have preferred WYSIWYG photos. Still prefer that to a degree..but it seems to be a losing battle as many I have encountered use post production to enhance.
