We started putting out bird feeders when we lived in Wichita ten year ago. We continued when we moved to Denver and recently began again on the road. I decided to post a few pics from each location and was pleased to see the variety of birds we’ve had visit us from place to place. Take a look:

I just posted photos from our recent jaunt through Mount Hood National Forest in Northern Oregon. There are a few spots in the orchard country where you can see both Mount Hood and Mount Adams in Washington State…

On our way to Oregon this week we passed Mount Shasta and a set of peaks known as the Castle Crags. I took a few shots of both and posted them in my California gallery:

Yesterday we checked off another national park on our list. We left 85 degrees and partly sunny in Oregon House, CA, and drove 2.5 hours to the Lassen Volcanic National Park, where is was 38 degrees at the summit with icy-cold rain. Because of the weather many of my photos were rendered ordinary, but several turned out well. Enjoy!

Good news! I received my final proof and have approved it (finally), making my new book available on CreateSpace and Amazon.com. Like all my books (weird saying that, this is my fourth book now), “A Splendid Alternative” is named for a poem within, a piece written about the goings on of the tiny town of Greensburg, KS, after being devastated by an EF-5 tornado in 2007. Their rebuilding efforts are inspirational.

This new collection of poetry and photographs contains 55 poems paired with photos from my travels, and includes sonnets, haiku, senryu, villanelles, and other classic poetic forms. Author Marsha Dean Walker has written a review (http://www.jackhuber.com/review4.htm).

I recently put my domain, jackhuber.com, up to begin promoting my poetry, photographs, books, and other products (i.e. calendars). It’s currently just a simple site, showing testimonials and how to order my book, Trappings of the Years, but it will now begin a transformation into what I hope will be an interesting place to visit.

…that’s what they’ll be calling me. I just learned that there is a word for what I do with my poetry and photographs. From poets.org:

Ekphrasis (also spelled “ecphrasis”) is a direct transcription from the Greek ek, “out of,” and phrasis, “speech” or “expression.” It’s often been translated simply as “description,” and seems originally to have been used as a rhetorical term designating a passage in prose or poetry that describes something. More narrowly, it could designate a passage providing a short speech attributed to a mute work of visual art. In recent decades, the use of the term has been limited, first, to visual description and then even more specifically to the description of a real or imagined work of visual art.

So, writing poems using my photos as inspiration is actually an ancient art. Whooda figured?
