Natural Exhibits




The Natural Exhibits photography series by Karen Williams evokes kid-like curiosity. I'm amused by the photos and get a sense of museum excitement. Or, at least I was the kid nerd always loving to go to museums. My mind raced with questions (still does), and it was an opportunity to let my creative imagination run wild. Karen's photography brings about those same feelings, and that is something quite special.

On a side note, "real job" work is out of control this week. If you see crazy posts at erratic times...you'll know why! You guys keep me sane, so I will still be posting and trying to respond to e-mails. Alright, back to work...even though my mind is saying "Do I haveee to?" Ha!

I too am having real job work issues...in fact, today I posted a thought on my blog: Why not start work blogs so colleagues can stop by and say nice things about you? Wouldn't it be nice to get comments at "real job" blog like, "OMG! Great strategy session!" ;-)

Some days I'm just hanging out on the internet and I think, "Hmm, what's going on at please sir?"

A few seconds later my mouth will literally gape open because of the oh-my-god-coolness before me.

Thank you for these wonderful pics.

Hang in there :) I'm positive there is no lack of understanding here in the blogging community, especially during those periods of craziness at the "real" job! We've got your back!

Gorgeous! My husband and i have the good fortune to be able to hike and travel to remote parts- are passion is to document through photography the animals that we come across- we become obsessed with every little thing they do- but what always amazes us is- that they are just like us-without all the unnescary stuff! Wow can not wait to check out her work! thank you for sharing!
