Chilly winter weather sent us to the camping section of our local superstore. After traveling down a few isles, we found the perfect material to cover our windows to keep out the cold. It was thin, lightweight, reflective and easy to transport. Once we got it home, we had to unfold it and trim to fit the individual areas we wanted to cover. During that laborious process, I spotted the perfect opportunity to take a shot. The light was breaking on it’s shiny surface as it collected the many colors of the room. After a little bit of strategic photo editing, the secret life of this object emerged. The end result looked like a colorful, heavily textured abstract painting. New additions to this series will be added in the weeks to come. Be sure to check the my website for more details.

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Modern Architecture and Flowers

We’re on the third weekend of our Christmas Countdown! This object was originally meant to be a part of our Christmas festivities. When we saw the object at the super store last year, we knew it would make the perfect addition to our holiday decor. Unfortunately, as beautiful as it was, it failed to solve our decorating dilemma. It’s now stored away in our garage somewhere, waiting patiently for a new home or a future appearance.

Can you guess what this object is?

Textured lines bend gracefully.

A line is lost; a line is found.

The ebb and flow of life culminates in the signature of a single fingertip.

Time imprints itself on men’s divided hearts.

Ordinary Objects That Combine Nature And Industry

Winding metallic lines meet boldly.

Waves catch mid days light,

Holding their form,

Anticipating the curious.

Eyes still standing,

Encase the surrogate womb,

Sealing deep wells,

Impressing your mind.

A Silent Dedication To The Tough But Tender


Marisa D. Aceves. Grateful Heart: Steel Butterfly Hearts. digital photography.  2016

Hard yet gentle

Strength holds fragile love in its grasp

This our subtle flower

Guarded by a crown

I’d like to take a little time out this busy fall weekend to dedicate this photo collage to all the tough but tender folks in the world. Sometimes they reveal difficult truths to save us from our own destruction. At first, this makes us angry and we scoff at their timeworn advice. Later, we realize their love was real not conditional. They helped us become the older, wiser people that we are today. If you are moved to share this dedication with a loved one in their honor, take the precious opportunity that life presents. However, if your loved one is no longer with us, take this moment of silence to reflect on the impact they made in your life.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend

❤️ As always, don’t forget to live life creatively!

Marisa D. Aceves. Blind Faith: Sympathetic Curve. digital photography. 2016

Patiently, the pen strikes the page,

A boundless white field,

A new beginning,

The mind wants to leap ahead,

The heart wants to stay behind,

Dwelling in disappointments,

Certainties of the past,

Peeking anxiously through sharp slats,

Fearful of blood-soaked wars ahead,



The curve appears,

Another year like dead relationships passes,

Too soon,

Before we fall to regrets


Welcome curve,

A new resolution, coupled with strength,



Brings us to you,

We hunger for life,

Not yet lived,

And solemnly wonder,

Why we always fear,

Things concealed,

From waking sight,

Sight that must learn to see,

See to dream,

See to gain power,

Through action,

The futures promises entice us,

Pushing us forward,

Moving us closer,

Toward Heaven or Hell.


Before our urgent decision,

An immediate end to countless dramas,

There is still time to play,

As the pen soaks paper,

Still time to write,

A better ending.

Happy Easter Tranquil Koi Pond

This Easter weekend we visited Rainbow Gardens Nursery in search of some succulents to plant as living decoration for our backyard.  Our search was successful; we found just the right mix of tiny plants for our project. There were some nice surprises along the way. The scenery was beautiful. The Koi Pond on the property was fantastic. While I understand the above image is a departure from the abstract subject matter that I normally post, I felt the need to include this one as a nice holiday break before launching into the next series of abstract pictures. As always, it is the small, yet extraordinary moments that we capture that make the most impression in our lives.

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend! Sorry no bunnies or eggs.;)
