Bisbee’s Got Talent and Orbs

Wiskey Girl and Nowhere Man

Backstage at the annual Bisbee’s Got Talent fundraising show for our homeless shelter. Derrick Ross of Nowhere Man and Whiskey Girl rehearses to an appreciative audience of orbs.

Bisbee Chorus

Members of the Bisbee Community Chorus are unaware of the attention they are attracting from the orb above.

Orbs danced along with Linda Herrera singing and playing a lovely percussion rhythm with clapping and pounding a cup.

High Desert Gypsies

Once the High Desert Gypsies began their tribal dancing, my camera lost interest in orbs and just focused on the color and light of their exquisite moves..

The winner of the Judge’s Vote for Bisbee’s Got Talent was Renee Harper:

Renee wins each time she participates and always makes us wonder why she isn’t starring on Broadway.

Silent Orbs in the Night

I found this photo after posting the series of blizzard orbs a couple of posts ago. It is such a pretty scene, that I want to share it with you even though it is not snowing tonight.

Below are the orbs which are sailing overhead this evening:

It is after midnight in the sleeping town of Bisbee, Arizona. Little do the residents realize who is gliding silently through the night.

For those of us not particularly gifted at seeing emanations of spiritual beings, a camera’s flash will bring them to light.

Have you checked out your roof top lately to see who is flying overhead?

Orbs Gather for Full Moon

The full moon often draws us into the night to photograph the sky. I found this lovely pink orb while out with the moon a couple of nights ago.

 The moon is the bright light cradled in the trees. I thought you might enjoy the movement of the orb across from the moon, and the way the pinkish orb is perched on the tree in the center.

Last night the moon was slower to rise, but the orbs were waiting patiently.

In fact, I want you to realize just how dense our sky can be with flying orbs.

I’m experimenting with different densities of brightness and contrast to reveal the orbs.

Practically a blizzard of orbs grace our skies.

Inspired by the moon, an orb outshines the crowd.

I encourage you all to seek the orbs outside your doors in the night. It’s just a pretty sight to discover who floats through your neighborhood.

Night and Day Snow Orbs

Orbs photo by Cheyenne MacMasters

We were on blizzard alert yesterday in Bisbee, Arizona. Schools took the day off and county offices closed early before we went to white out conditions in the afternoon. The early evening brought a bit of clear sky except for an occasional orb floating through.

I especially like the tiny blue orb perched above the wire fence we put up to keep the dog out of cat territory.

Later in the evening the snow returned, much to the interest of the orbs who mingled with the snowflakes. Takes a practiced eye to distinguish orbs from snow. The orbs are more translucent and in my neighborhood are often shaped like tear drops.

We have had more snow this year than in my previous 18 winters in Bisbee.

Some blues and pinks to brighten the night.

After the drama of the blizzard of the night, a few Sun orbs to enjoy.

Snow day in Bisbee

snow day Cheyenne MacMasters

We are having a snow morning here in Bisbee, Arizona. Offices are opening a few hours later, basically because no one trusts the other person to know how to drive on snow-covered ice.

I thought I’d let you take a look at my neighborhood in daylight. Perched above this cement garage is one of the agave stalks where orbs hover.

The gate that is often an attractor of nighttime orbs.

Looks like the dog has already taken a look into town from our bench.

B Mountain from which the moon rises over our miner shack architecture.

I was watching the snow blow off the rooftops from my kitchen window, and realized a photo opportunity awaited outside.

The distant mountains are in Mexico, whose border is about 12 miles from my house.

The “Old Bisbee” section of town is so steep the post office won’t deliver mail to our houses. The benefit is that the post office is a neighborhood meeting place, giving us endless opportunities to greet each other and exchange pleasantries. It’s why we’re all so gosh darn friendly!

Full Moon Orbs

The full moon brought me out of the house this evening to quest for orbs. My personal orb, good old tear drop, awaited me on the upper left of my photo as usual.

Full Moon on the right rises over the mountain, orb on the left with a surprising reflection.

When questing for orbs in my neighborhood, I always look to see who is floating above the agave stalks.

Looks like a moon, this orb on a branch.

Always hopeful, this is a first, an orb among the Chinaberry trees.

The night begins to darken as orbs fly high over Bisbee, Arizona.

Happy Full Moon everyone!

Hexagonal Orbs

 Last night was cold in Bisbee, Arizona. Some of yesterday’s snow was still on the ground and I’m glad my jeans are baggy enough to accommodate long underwear. Because now that the world has ended and begun again, there are still some routines that must be done, like walking the dog at night. For a quester of orbs this is prime time to see who’s in the neighborhood.

These are all orbs lighting up the image, can’t say that I noticed them lighting up the night until I took the picture. Digital flash photography is my extra pair of eyes to discover the world around me. Some of you who are familiar with my blog have noticed that orbs are particularly attracted to dog walks with my husband, much more than if I’m out by myself with the cats. What is different about the photos in this posting is the hexagonal shapes of many of the orbs (you may need to enlarge the image on whatever computer device you are using  to see the sharp edges).

The large orb at my husband’s shoulder has all the characteristic details we have come to know in orbs: the darker inner rim and interior modulations. But the hexagonal outer edge indicates that the orb’s light reached the camera when the shutter was beginning to close. At first I thought it was the cold that was affecting the speed of the light. However, I just double checked my camera and the top dial on the Canon G12 was set at AV instead of the usual Auto setting I use for orb photography. So, there goes my initial cold orbs are slower theory.

A few hours later and we’re back on the road with a party of orbs sailing overhead and all around. Nothing like a brilliant orb and the whole gang showing up on the view screen to bring a smile and shout of delight to this orb quester!

It has been a week since my last post, a time of holiday relaxation and fun with family. Yesterday I began to catch up on all the blogs that have been accumulating in my e-mails. What a busy and creative mix of passions and enthusiasms you all have to share! I was also startled to notice that I had been nominated for another award, The Versatile Blogger Award 2012, by Poèmes Français & Anglais, Poems French & English by Gys at http://lgyslaine.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/versatile-blog-award-2012/. Gys certainly is deserving of praise for her versatility in writing both French and English poems as well as her photo montages, all in celebration of love. Thank you for the honor, Gys, and I like the award’s image:
