New Blog Entry? - Post It Here

If you have been posting in the old thread from Nikolyn, we have been talking that it is getting a bit long, so . . . I invite you to post links to your latest blog entry here. She will share the link to the old discussion thread to keep this all connected.

Also, if you are not blogging on FAA or thinking about doing so, I have updated my blog entry for your information here: https://fineartamerica.com/blogs/the-benefits-of-fineartamerica-blogs.html

OK - moving new blog post links to this thread.

Yes, as Frank said: Frequent blogging can and does make a difference. However, I post articles on my own sites/blogs because I want Google and Bing to index my content (there is a "noindex" tag on FAA blogs). I also want to include multiple images and influence my own SEO (title tag, description)

My latest article - is my old Baltimore travel site (online since 1999). The article, itself has little to do with art, but there is a link to my Baltimore Collection here at the top of every page (in the main nav menu) throughout the entire site.

Link: Cross Street Market - A modern example of “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” perhaps?

The Double-barred Finch – a Pretty Little Bird
Bird Photography with marysejansenart
Always on high alert

The grass is tall, taller than me and I’m not a shortie! I don’t know the name of this grass but I’ve started nick-naming it Elephant Grass. It grows wildly after a bit of rain. It flowers with large plumes and produces lots and lots of seeds. This is what the Double-barred Finches go crazy on.

OK - here's number 2 for the day on my https://www.USPictures.com site - introducing Ralph, the Great Egret. He appears to be scratching an itch...

Link: Great Egret Scratching an Itch

The Great Egret is a beautiful bird with a striking appearance. This large heron stands about four feet tall, and has a wingspan of six feet. It has a long neck and a long, pointed bill that makes it look like it's always searching for food.

This is one of the most common birds in North America, and it can be found across the continent. It can also be found in Europe and Asia, but it's not as common there as it is in North America. They are found near wetlands or other bodies of water where they hunt for fish, frogs, crayfish and small mammals like mice or rats.

Kondalilla Falls by Maryse Jansen


Kondalilla Falls – Land of Rushing Water
Landscape Photography with marysejansenart
A Walk in the Rainforest Part 2

The next morning I set out to Kondalilla National Park again, this time to explore the Kondalilla Falls track.It is raining again, steadily but not too heavy. Nothing my little umbrella can’t handle. The only downside is that holding an umbrella makes shooting photos and videos a bit more challenging. The beauty of rain in the rainforest, compared to rain in other places, is that it is so still, not windy. The dense vegetation breaks any amount of wind that may be present outside the forest. The water drips steadily down the trees and plants and they all have that shiny layer that the wetness gives them.

My latest blog entry. Enjoy!

- Listen To The Street -

"It's been known that one of the most effective ways for writing stories is with the use of picture words. This is something I learned much about back when I was at Columbia College Chicago, as my favorite class (outside of photography) was Writing Workshop. And for most of the class sessions we did a thing called 'listen to the street'.

This is where the professor would open up the windows, as our building was in the deep of the Chicago Loop, and we all were still and quiet as we listened to the sounds on the street. After a short time the windows would close and all of us would share from our notes through picture words what we ' saw ' on the street.

This is where I came to understand the reverse of picture words for my photography, as ' word pictures '.... thus the thought behind my mantra of ' pictures people listen to '. What this means (to me) is that when you study my photographs you should find many elements to describe it in words. This photograph - Chicago L Between The Walls - is only one example:"

A Water Bird that Loves Company

It is one of those birds that is often being taken for granted, the Cormorant! This aquatic bird species can be found almost everywhere throughout the world, along coastlines and inland water bodies...There’s a special moment when one bird enters the water. From where I am there is a beautiful reflection of the sunlight on the water, which makes it look like the swimming Cormorant is in the spotlight and there are lots of sparkles around it.....

Celebrating 100 Awesome Nature-bites!
Nature Photography with marysejansenart
Connecting with nature on a daily basis

For a hundred days in a row I have been creating these images. Every single day I took a moment to step outside and look around to find something in nature that I could share....It doesn’t have to be the tallest tree, the highest mountain or the most endangered bird to be interesting... Nature has a tendency to make us feel feelings like awe and wonder. These feelings are very good for us...

Stumped is an abstract watercolor painting of tree limbs, or tree branches. It might be a Birch tree. Count the lines in the core to see how old the tree is. When this piece was completed, I was really unhappy with it. So, I washed it off by running cold water over it. This presented new possibilities and so the tree trunk and stumps emerged. This painting is mostly soft, pastel colors of pink, yellow, green and blue. This image is included in my Washed Off Wonders collection.

Nice blog post Lois. Yes, I too have a love and hate relationship with WP.com and its issues. So for now at least I have settled FAA as my main photography blog. Some people don't like that you can only post one picture, but that is my strength.

 

Bill Swartwout

Frank, you do a really great job with your blog posts. Making use of that one image is a strength because you do it well. Your "Listen to the Street" is an outstanding piece. Your narrative section in there does justice to the image and makes one feel the presence of being there. (I know - I have been there - in that same spot - and your description brings it alive in my memory.)

But, sadly the weakness is that none of that effort is being indexed by the major search engines. I try to read all of the posts listed here and comment on as many as I can. However, I do not comment on the FAA-hosted blog posts. The "extra engagement" of commenting has no positive impact because of the no-index directive. Sorry.

No worries Bill. I understand your position. I'm entirely happy with the FAA blog. I write for one audience, my email list - the people who subscribe to what I have to share and say. And I'm okay with that. It has a healthy open rate, and new subscribers (and unsubscribes) all the time. Just the way Sean designed it to do.

I suppose I am "old school" and prefer to build clicks from the search engines. If I can keep the momentum going I should have 100+ search engine referrals, to EACH of my three main photography sites, every day by the end of the year. As of today (25 days into June), my https:///uspictures.com site has had 19,083 page views for the month. Those are not bot views - bots account for another 29,994 page views. My average "time on site" is currently at 232 seconds - not too shabby.

You know how to develop an email following. I know, I am one of your subscribers - and I see that it works for you. However, I feel badly for the people using the FAA blog space who do not work an email list as you do.

Red Rocks in Sedona is an abstract watercolor landscape based on the red rock formations in Sedona, Arizona. It shows a lot of vertical movement with warm earth tones. I hiked briefly in Sedona; it is truly beautiful country.

I took my watercolor painting Mountain Specter and cut it apart thinking it was hit by an earthquake. It is chaotic and disjointed. In fact, I also took this painting and cut it into squares, (Vignettes of Mountain Specter), and re-arranged it. In retrospect, I do not know why I cut this particular piece apart and re-arranged it (twice), but I think it worked. What do you think?

Comb-crested Jacana and Water Snowflakes by Maryse Jansen

The Comb-crested Jacana and its Abnormally Long Toes
Bird Photography with marysejansenart
The bird that seems to walk on water!

‘What a peculiar bird!’, I’m thinking, as I am laying eyes for the first time on a Comb-crested Jacana. I’m travelling through Cape York and on a walk in a conservation area that contains a lagoon with lots of water lilies. It is a beautiful setting and there is a variety of waterbirds present. But where most waterbird swim in the water, these ones appear to walk on it!

Islands is an abstract watercolor of islands in the ocean. Maybe it looks like whales or whale pods? Or flotsam and jetsam just floating along. It also reminded me of the scene in Cormac McCarthy's The Road, where the father and son finally reach the ocean only to find everything is black and dead. Do you see puzzle pieces?

I learned this "zigzag" (counterbalance) approach from Travis Ruskus, the Rock Balancer's Guide. (Look up: How to Counter Balance • Rock Balance Lesson with Travis Ruskus --on youtube from 2020 -- click button on my blog for more information) or check out his book on how to DISCOVER THE MINDFUL ART OF BALANCE). To counterbalance has meaning in musical language as well. :) I did all the artsy stuff here: painted the big rock, balanced them on my piano, and took the photo (thank you to my mom for her camera). :D

This national park covers more than 1.87 million acres and has many monoliths, slot canyons, natural bridges and arches. This painting is taken from a photograph of some of the red rock canyon walls. They are a jumble of shapes and sizes. It was the shapes that caught my eye and it is the geometry that prompted this painting.

Outback Road into Bush Fire by Maryse Jansen

Bushfire – friend or foe?
Landscape Photography by marysejansenart
The difference between Wildfires, Hazard Reduction Burns and Cool Burns

Driving on an outback road I have to turn around because of a bushfire. But not before I take this photo. The scene has an incredible beauty with the deep red dirt, lined by the trees in a haze of smoke. When you look really, really closely in the centre of the image you might notice a Black Kite. These raptors hang out at the edge of the fire, waiting to ambush prey that comes fleeing out of the smoke…
When you live in Australia bushfires are a common occurrence. They can be very dangerous and destructive. But they can also be a good thing, keeping us and wildlife safe and even aid conservation of natural areas. How is that possible??

Some of my cyanotypes sold on FAA to a designer. The images ended up in a hospital near my home. I am grateful to Arch Designs for using local St. Louis artists for their projects. It is this kind of support that means so much to artists. Plus they wrote a nice little blurb about my art on their web page:

Local Nature Art
About the Artwork

Framed prints from local artist and photographer Jane Linders beautifully complement the modern interior at BJC Outpatient Center at Ellisville.

Unique stylized prints from Linders’ wet cyanotype botanical series involve a fascinating process to create each image.

Cyanotype, also known as sun printing, is the photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print through an interaction between special chemicals and the sun.

Jane Linders employs a variation of this technique called wet cyanotype, where she undercoats the paper with additional chemicals or substances to alter the results.

Wet Cyanotype Creeping
Jenny Botanical Print

Jane says she enjoys the physical involvement during the printing process, which allows her to use her hands, eyes, and intuition when creating the pieces.

She undercoats each piece of paper with watercolor and sprinkles them with turmeric to create bursts of yellow coloring. She then places cuttings from plants found locally, covers them with soap bubbles and plastic wrap, and exposes them to the sun to create extraordinary results.

These wet cyanotype botanical prints by Jane Linders combine artistry and chemistry and offer a unique take on local plant life at this state-of-the-art clinic.
Artist Jane Linders via Fine Art America
About the Artist

St. Louis-based artist and photographer Jane Linders has been practicing chemistry for the last fifteen years while taking an interest in infrared photography. After experimenting with black and white infrared film for five years, Linders began exploring alternative photographic processes.

Jane currently specializes in alternative process photography such as black and white infrared, polaroid transfers, emulsion lifts, and cyanotypes. Reflecting on her creative process, Jane states that “the depth of the tactile experience and the imposed slowness reveals moods and nuances in my images that I wouldn’t normally see.”

Framed prints from local #STLartist Jane Linders beautifully complement the modern interior at BJC Outpatient Center Ellisville. Linders uses #wetcyanotype to offer a unique take on local flora. Read more at: https://bit.ly/3MV4pRg

This past fall the incredibly, large, old silver maple had to come down. It was in poor health. It broke our hearts – it provided shade in summer and was home to myriad beings. In the aftermath, we found three tiny shards of mismatched pottery. Remnants of some long-ago party (the house is 70+ years old; we are the third owners). This is my representation of the three small shards of pottery. The colors are mainly red and yellow in triangular shapes.

Brolgas in the Landscape by Maryse Jansen

5 Types of Wetlands and their Birds
Landscape Photography with marysejansenart
What’s the deal with all these different wetlands and waterbirds?

Wetlands and waterbirds are very broad terms which can get a bit confusing. In earlier posts, I have discussed some of them and I think before I take you on my next wetland walk, spotting waterbirds, that now is a good time to give it some more context.

Usually, I work from photographs -- seeing the shapes and making an abstract painting. My story time collaborations with Philip Tripi have been an interesting adventure. Rather than looking at a photo, I am looking at words. It makes my brain work in a different way. This is our fourth collaboration.

A flash of colour sheers through the sky, and darts back again to where it came from. I try to follow it with my eyes. There it is again! This time I find the branch that it has landed on and I can take a better look. An amazing looking multi-coloured bird named Rainbow Bee-eater is the cause of this spectacular aerial display....

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo perched on a branch by Maryse Jansen

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo – Cracking a tough Nut
Bird Photography with marysejansenart
Screeching bird cracks the toughest nut in the world with ease!

‘What does the bird say?’ the European grandmother asked her 5 year old Australian born grandchild. In reply the child let out a horrific screech. She laughed and said: ‘No, the bird says ‘tweet tweet tweet’!’ But the child was adamant: ‘No granny, the bird says: ….’ and a few more screeches followed. The grandmother looked confused and glanced at her daughter for help. The daughter confirmed that the child was correct: ‘This is the sound of our beautiful Sulphur-crested Cockatoos!’

5 Interesting Facts About Kangaroos
Wildlife Photography with marysejansenart
And a Photo Shoot in the Late Afternoon Sun

The winter sun is slowly going down and quickly losing strength. The ‘Golden Hour’ is approaching! I’ve been enjoying a beautiful walk through a coastal forest, dominated by Paperbark Trees, Lomandras and lots of wildflowers. I spot some fresh kangaroo droppings as well as kangaroo paw prints. Plenty of signs that this is kangaroo country. And this is just the right time of the day to expect them coming out of the woods and start grazing on their evening meal....

Lace Monitor by Maryse Jansen

The Lace Monitor – an Impressive Lizard
Wildlife Photography with marysejansenart
Big, Powerful and Beautiful

A rustle in the undergrowth tells me there is ‘something big’ there. That’s always a bit exciting! When you’ve heard it more often you begin to recognize what various animals sound like when they move around. The raking sound of the Brush Turkey sounds very different from the hopping sound of a Kangaroo. The rustle of a slithering snake is distinctly different again. The noise I am hearing right now consists of a continuous rustle, like the slither, but I can also hear footsteps breaking it up. This must be a Goanna, or Lace Monitor! There it emerges from the undergrowth and begins to climb a tree trunk! It’s absolutely an impressive creature!
