Old family photos
Wrinkled and faded with time
Old family photos
Faces staring back at me

Moments captured
Frozen faces from times gone by
Moments captured
Snippets of who they were once

Time held still, fixed on paper
Halides holding images of life
Souls stolen for a moment
Transfixed by lens and chemistry

Old family photos
Wrinkled bits of tin type
Sepia colors in washed out faces
Stuck and still until the flash subsides

Old family photos
People like you and me
Sitting or standing
Moments from their lives captured

So real yet untouchable
Imploring eyes rushed to make a moment
Sit here, look there, hold, flash, done
A family memory of their when now ours.

I started out my online art as a writer. As it turns out my visual art has also found an audience online. I have a point of presence on See.Me (davedocrogers.see.me). At first it was just a place to put some interesting pieces of visual art, until I was invited to participate in a showing in NYC. That show, Creatives Rising, runs through Oct 5th, 2013, and caps the show with a projection of art onto a 42 story skyscraper. My piece is time slotted for 1031p ET. So, if you are in Queens go see the show and have fun at the block party.

As it turns out, I have had really positive feedback on my visual art. Nice. And thank you! And I received an invitation to participate with the Art Takes Paris show. Nice again.

This time around there is a show coming to Miami. You guessed it, Art Takes Miami.

Within the See.Me community how they gauge participation in special feature events is through the number of support clicks the artist or art receives. This is done through the “Support Me” button. There is a registration, I think. It keeps the roboto clicks to a minimum, so it is real people not a computer liking the art.

So, visit davedocrogers.see.me and click the “Support Me” button and help me get into additional shows and special events showings. I appreciate you and your support of my surprise-to-me talent with visual art. They will only tally support clicks from October 1 – 31.
