Facing the Unknown: Orbphotog


photo of Orbphotog (c) Margo Macartney 2013

While questing for orbs, Margo Macartney took this photo of me gazing into the darkness, a blue orb gazing back, with orbs to both sides.

Facing the unknown. An appropriate image as I start my new job working with children and adults who have autism. A change of perspective is on the horizon.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memory as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help: https://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/photographing-orbs


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

        • Thank you for your confidence. I used to be the executive director of a homeless shelter. A wonderful time of upgrading the facility with a new roof, paint inside and out, building an office annex to make room for a women’s dormitory and pushing that through despite opposition. By then I was confident enough to face my own shelter needs so I resigned from that intensity to rehabilitate my place (an ongoing project!). Now, just getting off a ladder for a day is a perspective shift!
