I Love Being An Artist... I Have Such A Thing For Eye Candy!

Carolyn Tann-Starr 2008

Flushing Meadows Park, Queens County, New York City

I love being a Work-At-Home-Mom (WHAM). I love being an artist. I have such a thing for eye candy and am always looking for something beautiful to enjoy. I don't know about you, but I am definitely a Spring-Fall baby. There is something about those vibrant colors that just gets my brain rolling in high gear and makes me want to whip out my oil paints and create a new work of art...

I am on a very interesting team that is judging an art contest between Realtors. I've enjoyed some fascinating e-mails from across the country. Truth be told, it's actually an International Competition because the Canadians have come out to play and we have a wonderful judge named Poppy Dinsey from London, UK. It's a Club Chaos Photography and Video competition regarding the Fall Season. Since I am on a panel of 7 moderators, I can not participate as a contestant, however, I can provide  sneak previews of what I would be doing if I were actually in the game. Besides, I think it would be mad fun to tease some of the participants who also happen to be my friends.

Here is a tasty little bit of Fall eye candy from my turtle run in Flushing Meadows Park. I wonder what my peers have in store for me today... Looking forward to it.

Carolyn, the pictures are lovely, like the woman who too them.  Pat... the picture of the tree lined street was gorgeous!

Cheryl W, I do hope you will enter our Fall Eye Candy Contest. I would love to see what you see in your neck of the woods. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Michael, sweetie, get some rest. I hope your trip was enjoyable.

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Sandy. By all means do not leave home without your camera! You must be ready to capture eye candy at all times! You never know what you're going to want to capture once you start exploring the neighborhood. There is so much beauty to see... so much to photograph but sometimes so little time. I do hope you will join the contest as well. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Pat Tasker get your blogger's butt over to Club Chaos and start supplying more eye candy! I better see an entry in that contest. Don't make me come over there! (LOL) BTW, I love your photography! Feel free to post more views. I am so into this!

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Fran, you know me very well (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Don. I love sharing my photographs with you all. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Susan. Pat certainly has caught some stunning color in that tree lined street. They both are truly lovely. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

The skies were beautiful that day C and the fall colors were amazing!  Thanks for sharing your day at the park with us.

Since we are still in the upper 80's, and live oaks are green year round.. I haven't seen anything of fall yet!

But will keep an eye out, and in the meantime I can enjoy the photos others post.

Posted by Sherry Scales, Realtor, for Austin, TX and surrounding areas (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) about 12 years ago

I have some spectacular fall photos and hope I have time to be involved with your contest.  Darn, I wish I could just send you to my 'main' website or to Flickr.  Oh well...

Posted by Susie Blackmon, Ocala, Horses, Western Wear, Horse Farms, Marketing about 12 years ago

Cheryl P, thank you and you are very welcome. <3 C. ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Sherry, sweetie, GREEN is still a Fall color (LMAO). You can photograph all the wonderful shades of green and share them with us. Go join the contest. Consider doing a video as well as a photography presentation.

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

I only have one word to say about your candy....sweet!  Too bad we don't get fall colors at the beach...palm trees stay green year round.

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) about 12 years ago

Ok, I get it, this is the constest!  Everything looks the same in so cal in Fall as it does in Summer so I have nothing good to share here. 

Posted by Cristal Drake, Realtor - Fullerton Real Estate (Prudential California Realty) about 12 years ago

This is a great idea for a contest.  I have really enjoyed being a part of Flickr and learning to put my camera to better use.  Fall in Michigan is just gorgeous...

Posted by Lola Audu, Audu Real Estate~Grand Rapids, MI ~Welcome Home! (Lola Audu~Audu Real Estate~Grand Rapids, MI Real Estate) about 12 years ago

Jeremy, you get those gorgeous beach sunrise and sunset views. I would go collect some of that eye candy in a heart beat if I were down there with you. You really should submit some photographs. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Cristal, of course you do. S CA is gorgeous. Show us exactly what you have right now! GREEN is a fall color. Use it! (LOL)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago
