Worlds within Worlds

August Break #7

Yesterday's pic reflected the state of being at the precise moment the sun set on Ilfracombe's seascape,  the beauty of the sunset lit up the Bakery window reflecting the passers-by and a moment of their lives was captured, a unique moment in history never to be repeated!  Fascinating!   Mysterious in the sense of wonderment about people and their lives? Asking deeper questions about our connections to others?
Today's pic in the series of 'Reflections of Reflections' highlights another world within, as the light changes it reveals a world of delights in the form of delectable treats!  It was a lovely day full of surprise for me and my camera.   My love and I had spent a good part of the day until 3.30pm in our camper van as the rain continued from Tuesday, we decided to give it until late afternoon and then go home if it didn't stop as we'd planned to travel home Wednesday anyway.  I reasoned that should the rain stop we could salvage the day and stay late into the evening, and so we did, I had the most wonderful time with my camera at Ilfracombe. 
It's a funny thing, a bakery was on our list of treats and if we hadn't  been bewitched by the changing light on the harbour we would have got to the bakery earlier and tasted these delights, but then I wouldn't have seen them in this beautiful sunset which was far more satisfying to me, I don't know about my love though? He's rather partial to a cake or two!

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…
