I'm still taking digital photos as frequently as ever, and finding Tarot images in them. In this post you'll note that I'm putting up two possible Tower images, and another Hanged Man (see previous post for a different version). An email friend even found a probable Fool image in one of my photos that I'd not caught. (I'm not posting that one yet, as I want to re-take it from a slightly better angle.) What fun this all is! I'm even digging deeper into the manual that came with the camera to get more technically proficient. :-)

By the way, if you'd like to see some of my non-Found Tarot photos, visit my dreams & poetry blog. I've started posting a picture a day with my Daily Dreamku.

Now to the new Found Tarot cards/images:

Here's that alternate XII/Hanged Man I mentioned above:

And here's a "maybe" II/High Priestess, I really like those two pillars:

I'm seriously considering having the Page cards in The Found Tarot be Child cards. Here's what could be the Child of Swords, followed by the Child of Cups:

Now for something a bit darker, both literally and figuratively, the Five of Wands. This was taken in a rather small but fecund and jungle-like corner by our community's front gate, from a cross walk above:

I'm not sure about this one. I loved the willow that it once was, and now even the stump and it's beautiful patterns are gone. The patterns aren't quite as clear or colorful in this photo; I know now how to take a better one but it's too late. So this picture I'm considering for XIII/Death is permeated with feelings of loss for me:

Hm, is there is theme emerging in this post? Yeah, I'm in a rather blue mood. Anyway, the next and last are two photos I'm considering for XVI/The Tower. I think I actually slightly prefer the palm to the building as it has a mild sense of "looming," though I've still not quite captured the angle I want in a palm photo and I've taken many of them:

I have others in which I clearly see Tarot cards, but want to re-take due to some angle issue or obstruction/distraction. (Sheesh. That could be the theme for my life at the moment, why I'm in a blue mood. LOL! I just thought of that expression: "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.") I also have many in which beautiful flowers speak a little bit to me of various Cup pip cards. But I would like more than a whisper, so I'm waiting on those.
