Happy S-u-n-furling

I've joined in with the August Break project hosted by Susannah Conway (see the badge) and my happiness this week has been to capture the sunflower in my garden as it gently unfurls, (one pic per day).

The rest of the week has been a bit higgledy piggledy, I've been psyching-up all summer to start the massive job of painting the exterior of our house, finally got down to it this week promising ourselves a holiday in our beloved chariot when completed.  Well it has rained on and off all week hasn't it!  Finally finished yesterday only to be denied the get-away today as the chariot's wing mirror got broken two weeks ago, my love ordered one immediately off ebay, they promised it to be here in ten days and isn't!!!!

Oh, kettle, computer and toilet cistern all on the blink this week too, all necessities, been very frustrating!
But
Today is our wedding anniversary and even if we don't get off on holiday, can't have a hot drink or go to the loo I can always take another shot of the S-u-n-furling flower and if my computer doesn't freeze on me post!!!:)


Wishing many happy moments to all of you.

Sunflowers are just the happiest of flowers. I love it when you stumble upon a whole field of them smiling and winking at you in the sunshine :)
Hope you get away and a wonderful time. Happy Anniversary.

Have a wonderful anniversary. I love your picture of the sunflower. Your post is such a wonderful picture of life and how we can find happiness in spite of all the irritations that present themselves.

Happy Anniversary!! We are currently painting the exterior of our house - ugh! What a process! Now I see why the pros charge so much. It is a ton of work. I hope you get to drive off somewhere soon and enjoy a day to yourselves. Cheers!

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
