Can't Help Playing with Light




Just a little rider to this post on how my new season look was created:

Banner

  • Five images were selected with similar hue and shade, resized to fit the banner area 830 x 300 pixels approx.
  • Using Corel Photopaint software I skewed some of the images, adding perspective so they appear to come forward, after feathering I grouped them horizontally on the top of a base image.
  • Skewed text was added as the final layer.
  • The template was changed in Blogger using Simple template and anzeletti. template image. 
  • I customised the look to suit the new autumn colours using the 'Advanced Settings', for anyone who hasn't tried, this is straight forward.

Images

  1. Was captured using the macro button on my camera, the lens was pressed against a candle holder with see through glass decoration towards the light.
  2. Morning sun on area of water on my slate window ledge with reflection of blue glass vase.

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
