Kaleidoscope  is derived from the Ancient Greek (kalos), “beautiful, beauty” (eidos), “that which is seen: form, shape” and (skopeo), “to look to, to examine.”  Hence “observation of beautiful forms.

We are a group of friends, moms, visual artists and photographers from around the world who are passionate about capturing images of the real, the messy and the magical-the wonder of the everyday.  Like a kaleidoscope, our photographs are playful and experimental, ever-changing and infused with light and colour.  Once a month, we assemble a single mosaic comprised of our collective pictorial tiles, one submitted by each of us, that reflect the shared meaning and beauty in our lives.

kaleidoscope…a new collaboration

Last year I participated in a "10 on 10" project with some of my favorite ladies. This year we are doing something a little different. We are starting a new project called "Kaleidoscope". (brainchild of Bee Chalmers who is a fav of mine) Kaleidoscope  is derived from the Ancient Greek (kalos), “beautiful, beauty” (eidos), “that which is seen: form, shape” and (skopeo), “to look to, to examine.”  Hence “observation of beautiful forms.

We are a group of friends, moms, visual artists and photographers from around the world who are passionate about capturing images of the real, the messy and the magical-the wonder of the everyday.  Like a kaleidoscope, our photographs are playful and experimental, ever-changing and infused with light and colour.  Once a month, we assemble a single mosaic comprised of our collective pictorial tiles, one submitted by each of us, that reflect the shared meaning and beauty in our lives.

I absolutely love seeing all of our different voices and perspectives all together in one place. I am excited to see how it all unfolds this year…be sure go here to check it out. And if you want to find Kaleidoscope on FB go here.

And here are a few images from an outing to the Great Salt Lake I did with my youngest one snowy morning while everyone else was at school. I feel most alive and happy when I am outside exploring. I don't get to do much of that in the wintertime. This day I decided to get out there anyways despite the cold and I'm glad I did…the earth is a pretty amazing place.
