Life in the Holler: The Lord shed a new light on the situation

Picture essay: It's all about perspective
Click on headline for introduction with pictures of Life in (and from) the Holler

By Shamarie Claiborne

Yesterday my life was all about light. I have had a crazy week. One of the hardest I have had in a long time. For lots of different reasons. But in a blink of an eye yesterday it came to me. It is all about perspective and as the old folks use to say "The Lord shed a new light on the situation". Which as a child I never really understood but now as an adult, I get it.


It is all about the way you look at things and from what perceptive your view is from.

So yesterday everywhere I looked it was about timing and where I put myself to see things from a different view.

Hope you enjoy what I captured yesterday. It fills my heart with joy to share a moment with those of you who like looking at what I frame. . . .Have a great and blessed day!

Life in the Holler: And the cow jumped over the moon



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne. Chris Cowan out in Milltown, who is a great guy, allowed me to take a few shots at his house last night. Our children had been riding four wheelers and I was picking up Dusty at just the perfect time. Of course he said "sure, help your self." This frame said everything to me about farm life. The equipment, the fencing and, in the light of the full moon, took me back 40 years in my mind to what I thought a farm should look like in the song, "Hey Diddle, Diddle" by Mother Goose, when Jimmy Harper would sing it to me. All the elements were there, you can't see the little Blue Healer running around my feet, the full moon, the laughter from the kids... I was just waiting for the cow to jump over the moon! - Shamarie

Life in the Holler: The Jolly Green Giant's slingshot



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne, Adair Co.
The light was shining perfectly
on the base of the Jolly Green Giant's slingshot. He must have dropped it during his last time through. Shana beware here he comes! (To understand fully the last sentence you will need to see Life in the Holler: The frightening, bookstarter tree . . . to refresh your memory.)

Life in the Holler: Bewitching hour



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
The bewitching spell of the full moon was even transforming time last night. Many folks say there is a bewitching hour. Not sure if it is 10:10 or 7:35 I guess it depends on where you are coming from Greensburg Street or Burkesville Street. - Shamarie Claiborne

Life in the Holler: Round and around we go



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
As I alluded to with another picture posted in this same grouping. Folks yesterday might have thought I had lost my mind. I drove around in a circle from the square to High Street Guardian then back around and down Fortune Street and then back around again trying to capture the perfect shot. After about three laps and different vantage points I found this perspective and loved it. - Shamarie Claiborne

Life in the Holler: Obsessed, but mind and body both got workouts



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne. OK it is officialI was obsessed with lighting, perceptive, and the full moon yesterday. After my endless pursuit to capture the perfect Courthouse/Moon picture it was on to LWC and a Chapel/Moon shot. After parking in the road sideways, parking in two different lots, squatting leaning on a tree, and then finally standing in the middle of the road. I got a shot I was happy with. If nothing else yesterday my mind and my body both got their workouts . . . - Shamarie Claiborne

Life in the Holler: Red Brick Studio, a perfect face lift



2014-03-16 - 200 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
Red Brick Studio not only gave a building on the square a needed face lift. It also has made a perfect canvas for light and shadows to create a late afternoon dance that makes the mind drift to endless possibilities. The first thought for me was a window into a alternate dimension where things are the same yet different. There seems to be trees, street lamps, and light everywhere but nothing moving or alive to be detected. Maybe a lonely place full of brightness but no one there to see or enjoy it. The same happens on this side of image when people have lives full of things to rejoice about but focus on the negative. As I said the same but different. - Shamarie Claiborne

Life in the Holler: Shed light on a moment and things change



2014-03-16 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
Anyone who saw me yesterday from about 5 pm until 7:30-ish saw me in some of the strangest places with my camera out. While at Gate on Burkesville Street I had just purchased my lottery ticket and looked up and the light from the sunset was shining on these little guys. I thought it was about time they got a little warmth and publicity. So I grabbed my camera and was standing in the middle of the parking lot snapping a few shots. I know people who don't know me are convinced my elevator must not go all the way to the top floor. But when you shed light on a moment it changes things; this time it went from average to picture worthy. Or I thought so anyway . . . - Shamarie Claiborne
