The Faerie Garden

  ©Tracy J Thomas, 2016. All rights reserved.

Spring is when I spend a lot of time in the garden kneeling down at eye level with all the flowers that seem to pop up and bloom overnight. I try to take some time daily to search for all the small details that are missed when caught up in our busy world. When you stop and look closely, it’s as if an entire parallel universe exists between the petals and stamen, the soil and grass. Sometimes while lost in a patch of Poppies I imagine a tiny world of faeries that flit about on lacy wings as they tend to the garden. If you look closely, you too might find them.

I shot these photos on my iPhone and edited them on my iPad with the PicFX and Procreate apps.

The Wonder of His Mind

My son Justin was born with an obscure genetic syndrome called FG. It is a multiple anomaly syndrome that includes atypical facial features, learning disabilities, speech issues, autistic-like behaviors, attention deficits, occasional behavioral issues, and in my son’s case a seizure disorder. Despite all the things he has had to battle in his life, Justin has grown into a wonderful, outgoing, independent man with a full social calendar and a lot of friends who love him. 

I created this piece while wondering what the world might look like through Justin’s eyes. He has always had a vivid imagination and has had difficulty filtering sounds and visual stimuli. I imagine he sees the world as one big noisy party of color, light, and movement.


The Jungle

Just a quick post. This is a new photomontage I created today. It is my homage to the dangers of life in the big city. I shot all the elements on my iPhone and edited it on my iPad using a variety of apps including Juxtaposer, PicFX, Pic Grunger, Stackables, and Procreate.
