Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. It is sad and gaudy, but it is what it is.

    I’ll put a table anywhere next to that swing for you to read on, if you want. đŸ™‚ You might want to wait until fall, unless you are allergic to mountain cedar and stuff. I was always so happy when the first cold front of the season came through and would open all the windows and doors until on time I noticed my nose had gotten all stopped up and my chest was sort of tight and you know..I just didn’t feel all that great…then I remembered that it happened about that time every year…then I went to the allergist.

    You and OC are welcome here anytime.

  2. I love the lines and angles here. And that green is really striking. Nice job. So you don’t have a project for us for in between Anna’s color projects this time??? Maybe I’ll think something up one of these days.

  3. Dr. John — neon gas is deadly, you know.

    JD — I took this shot from my hotel room. Those steps are in an alley neither you nor I would normally chose to walk down even in daylight.

    Amber — as you are welcome here — though unlike you I don’t have a fancy guest room. We’ll put you on the airbed in the spare room, and the ironing board and sewing machine can go put away for a change.

    Karen — thank you.

    Robert — my project is job hunting. Have to get off this couch and get busy!

  4. that is a great shot in difficult lighting conditions.
    the words correspond with the mood very well(love ‘neon bleeds’)

  5. That is a brilliant shot in difficult light. You have captured the colour of the neon perfectly. The gloominess of the stairs is obvious.
    Loved the words with it too.
