Grateful for Cherished Moments

I am grateful on this day, 
Wednesday, 15th December 2010, 
for Cherished Moments
.
I'm writing about this before the thoughts escape me, 
before they float off into the ether.

.

This morning much like any other morning started by seeing Charlotte off to work,
 she's staying with us whilst her bathroom is being renovated,

Over the past three years she has 
stayed with us on and off
 since coming back from life in the big city, all battered and bruised.
She's been on her healing path ever since.


Lately life has taken a leap forward for her
after two years or so out of work,
after pulling herself up off of the ground,
after preparing and putting herself through rigorous interviews,
she landed herself the perfect job
 at the University of Derby!!!
and
She's met someone who is making her happy!!!


This morning I packed her off to work, 
it was Christmas lunch day,
 I ironed her frilly blouse
 thinking how lovely she was going to look,
she had no earrings to go with, 
so I fetched her a pair of mine.
She looked gorgeous as she 
walked through the door,
we kissed and hugged.


I wrote all of this down 
because these are cherished moments.

We've been through 
a very tough journey together
and 
these are precious moments to savour,
to wrap in special delicate wrapping,
for these precious moments
I'm grateful.

Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

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…
