Welcome

Nature beings work with the living energy of nature and this includes shaping natural matter, such as rocks and trees, into living artistic and commemorative records.

The nature beings show me their artwork, communicate its meaning to me, and I photograph the scenes to share with you. I use minimal adjustments in Lightroom and Photoshop.

For over twenty years I have specialized in photographing these other-than-human-lifeforms who co-exist with us on earth. My photographic studies have been featured in one-person shows, juried group gallery shows, stores and galleries and have received photographic awards. I lecture and lead field workshops on this topic.

My three books on nature beings and interdimensional communication are: We Are Not Alone – A Guidebook to Interdimensional CooperationNature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts – How to Talk With and Photograph Beings of Other Realms; and Truths the Nature Beings Have Shown Me.

Beasties Along Bennett’s Run

Beasties - my human description - are the beings who live in the lower frequency spectrums of the nature realms. Because of their residence in these darker frequencies, humans tend to be afraid of them, often calling them "beasts." I like to use the term "beasties" as...

The "beastie" beings shown here live in a well-developed beech tree burl, alongside a small creek called Bennett’s Run, in the Brandywine Valley area of Pennsylvania.
I especially enjoy this display because the beasties are so clearly happy in their own existence and their place in their small community. These are address marker images showing a group home.
The beings live underground at this delightful scenic vista along the little stream. The energies here oscillate between very clean clear energy good for focusing (a result of the beasties activities consuming darker frequencies) and a heavy dark energy that is centered at the burl location (their personal energy).

Will watch the video.

Vote Time...Having Fun...wanted to test if I could take a photo of a nature being and develop it into an interesting design via Photoshop. Testing if there are design applications here of having the energy of the being infuse the abstract pattern. Shown here is the original image and the interesting pattern I created (via Photoshop Waves filter). What's your vote on this? ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful. I would love that edit in a fabric! Would be beautiful!

I’m not familiar with the technique you used. I say go wherever your heart leads you with this. I’m interested in seeing what you do.

Very interesting & unlimited potential. What first came to mind is nature-infused wallpaper.

I think you have accomplished your goal. I actually feel that energy has intensified…. I agree with Merry. Go big !!!

My first impression was an aerial view of a city. The original pic has a peaceful energy. The artistic one has a chaotic feel … which is defined an increase in energy (entropy).

Beautiful! Great for an accent wall

Most interesting. I can see where each nature being would reveal its own unique pattern. I can image that energy pattern image on the fabric of a pillow cover... one I would snuggle up to!

How many faces can you find in this long tree trunk? This tree lives at the back exit at the renown Winterthur Museum & Gardens, Wilmington, Delaware. I've photographed the bear-like beastie at other locations; he/she is community-oriented and usually appears happily hanging out with other beings. You can see them at today's blog on my website atalatoy;com #winterthurmuseum #winterthurgardens #treebeings #beasties #naturebeings ...

How's this for a ghost image on a gravestone? The gravestone is for a Sarah Sandwith, died 1756, Philadelphia, PA. It's one of the few gravestones that were erected at the Quaker Arch Street Meeting - one of the oldest and most central of the Quaker Meetinghouses in the USA. The Meetinghouse was a burying site for many Philadelphians, but there became a rule that no headstones were allowed, there were so many layers of burials. This tombstone was found in the cellar, and as hers was an honored Quaker family, it is now viewable in the Meetinghouse museum. I wonder how many people notice this sad face on the tombstone? #archstreetmeetinghouse #quakerburialground #tombstones #ghostimages ...

My Instagram name change reflects the cultural shift occurring in society. Academicians, ecologists, activists and lawyers are all documenting the existence of “other-than-human-lifeforms” who co-exist with humans on earth. My focus is on our interactions with these beings, who frequently provide us with clear images of their real existence. #naturebeings #treebeings #woodelves #naturebeingsphotography #naturespirits #cherrytrees ...

This Lady of the Forest wears a crescent moon and has long wavy flowing hair. She protects the wild life of her area, including America's Bison Spirit (see bison head below her).
