Home Sweet Home

I am grateful on this day, 
Monday 6th December 2010,
for my 'home sweet home'...
where my love always 
makes sure the
'home fire' is burning bright ...
keeping our toes toastie
melting our 'yeti boots'!

You provided us with a "two for" today. Both are moving and deeply meaningful. Bellini's is a favorite of mine.

Is this the same Bellini that made the canopy in St. Peter's Basilica?

You have a beautiful home and hearth and it is made all the more so by the love and gratitude that resides within. The outside photo looks like a Christmas card, so lovely, and your pup is incredibly sweet. Your photo of the virgin is magnificent, rich and interesting. I love the name, "Madonna of the Small Trees".
xo,
Noelle

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

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!
