The Silent Signs Of Change by Frank J Casella

December 16th, 2019

The Silent Signs Of Change by Frank J Casella

On this gloomy day, when the sunlight is trying to peek through the clouds, I was drawn upon the juxtaposition between the tree branches and the antenna on a neighbors roof. How both in their own way bring a sense of contentedness to either nature or the world around us.

It sort of reminds me of the Norman Rockwell painting, New Television Antenna, only in reverse. Where the Rockwell picture depicts the first in a new era, this picture illustrates one of the last roof antennas giving way to cable and satellite signals, and the internet.

The silent signs of change, in the changing seasons of time.

In All Circumstances, Give Thanks

November 27th, 2019

In All Circumstances, Give Thanks

" Failure is an event, not a person ". - Zig Ziglar


We either succeed or we learn.


When I sit in the presence of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and give thanks for life and every breath I take, I realize how much it's more about the big picture of things and less about me.


"In all circumstances, give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thes. 5:18


Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends to break bread together and have fellowship.


A time to be grateful for food, shelter, and clothing. A time to remember those before us who worked and believed in the legacy of America.


At Thanksgiving we sit around the table and share what we are thankful for because, while as President of the United States, George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God....



Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Lord, we thank you for the goodness of our people and for the spirit of justice that fills this nation.

We thank you for the beauty and fullness of the land and the challenge of the cities.

We thank you for our work and our rest, for one another, and for our homes.

We thank you, Lord: accept our thanksgiving on this day.

We pray and give thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.


From Catholic Household Blessings






==== Happy Thanksgiving!====

Remembering Photographer James Klein Lenderink

November 27th, 2019

Remembering Photographer James Klein Lenderink

Recently I learned that my special friend, and photographer colleague, Jim Lenderink passed away from Alzheimer Disease.

Jim made his living mostly as a commercial photographer for at least five decades. More important, he was a great man, husband and father, a relatable person, caring to the point of always sharing the things he knew about. He was always learning, tweaking and testing, and was not only very good at being in business but developed his photography skills to be so good, and speedy, that his clients could not 'ignore' him ... and Jim became passionate about these skills (instead of following his passions as you often see from creatives today).

I learned a lot from Jim in his studio before he and his wife moved out of the area about a decade ago, which was across the driveway from his home and next to his wife's dog behavior business with related services, but our greatest moments where in the barn while feeding the horses. This is when Jim shared with me memorable things like what it was like as a photographer for Playboy many years ago, to how he became a Christian which caused his work to become more meaningful to him and the viewer, and I will never for get our (friendly) arguments about pricing and business practices, and how to use the word 'because' in sentences for promotional marketing.

It is said that every successful person learns from a mentor, and Jim told me how he had many, and he was one of mine. Always encouraging and believing in me and my work at a time when it seemed many others did not. Here is an example of his sincere words of testimony (a treasure) that he surprised me with on Flickr:

"Frank's work ethic makes him a powerful force to do things the right way, the creative way, and the business way. He is also very trustworthy. His photography is always thoughtful, interesting, and creative. He is a very productive person and a loving husband, father and friend. A life time friend. ~ James Klein Lenderink, Commercial Photographer"

Most of Jim's branding is off the internet, and he was very detailed and intentional about it all, but I did do some deep digging and found some classic examples of his work. I hope you will read into these photographs as the master craftsman at work.

Public Fountain - a Work of Art!

Personality Portrait

Pet Portrait

These are the memories that come top of mind about James Klein Lenderink ... and there are many more. May he rest in peace for the positive difference that his life made in the world.





You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself - by Frank J Casella

You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself - by Frank J Casella

You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself


I like how this tree forms itself around the other tree, as if to be a good neighbor.

You might think that trees are like people. Some of them care, others don't...

Trees do show us the way and their living together, their care (not only) for each other is highly remarkable.

God's love in the world, which as you know is the thread that connects my pictures, illustrates here love of neighbor, which I think we need more of in this world.


"In response to the question about the first of the ten commandments, Jesus says: "The first is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' ...

The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." (CCC 2196)

How to Communicate Your Work - by Frank J Casella

Click to view photograph: Bird Cottage


"The stuff that’s for everyone, that’s easy to click, sniff, share, produce and learn–that stuff ends up having no character. It’s not memorable. Tater tots are for everyone. But would you miss them if they were gone? The goal isn’t to serve everyone. The goal is to serve the right people." ~ Seth Godin



Whether it is your work, your art, your website, or your relationships, it doesn't help you at all to know that you can't please everyone. But do use that knowledge to be more distictive, and do better for those who you can please.


"Everyone has the same message. If you can be different, you will lead. If you don't you will fall in with everyone else." ~ Cal Newport


"If people see your work as a negative, it means go deeper with it to be more distictive and unique." ~ Paul Klean, Artist Coach

Autumn Sunlight by Frank J Casella

Autumn Sunlight by Frank J Casella

Autumn Sunlight Through Trees

I think these two images are a really good illustration about the illuminance of Fall color ...

Radiant light from the sun illuminates the Autumn leaves still left and silhouette the branches of the trees.

In life, we never know the impression that we can make until we show our true colors for all to see.

For example, one of the things I try to do is to be a real person to those around me.

In the black and white image, there is more 'color' than a color photograph to me, because removing the color shows the true details of the moment.

I want to share these images today because I think they would make a nice Thanksgiving card, if you sent them, check the links below.

Why offer discounts?

My life mission is to share hope and God's Love in the World. Art is in the eye of the beholder.

People have told me how they, in their mind, hold onto my pictures, but can't afford to own it.

Others can afford my works, and in an online marketplace a discount helps them to make the decision to buy it.

When someone offers me a bundle of money for one of my pictures, I'm not silly and accept it (and donate most of it back into the economy).

My ultimate goal is not what price you pay, but what it is about my work that makes it priceless to you.

Most important, I do this to thank my parents, and Jesus, for my life and for my birth, and for the gift of telling a story through a photograph.

Our Ways Are Not His Ways by Frank J Casella

October 15th, 2019

Our Ways Are Not His Ways by Frank J Casella

Our thoughts go in many directions like the leaves from these plants. Yet, God's thoughts are above our thoughts.

I, too, fall into the (dangerous) trap of finding solutions for my problems without God.

Yet when I come to the end of my rope, and finally turn to God, the situation comes out way better than I could ever do myself.

When will I ever learn. I'm not God and never will be.
