Ordinary Moments

Rebecca speaks of ordinary moments ...
in my most ordinary moments
at the kitchen sink say ...
I'm transported somewhere else ...
somewhere a little less ordinary,
less familiar,
the moments become extraordinary,
the moments turn to magic ...
I see the familiar
 with 'fresh eyes' it's 
COSMIC

BTW All images are SOOC
(straight out of the camera)


Why not stumble over there yourself?

Wow Sue, this is really something seen with new eyes. Love it, these images are stunning. And I have to remember "SOOC" - will adopt that!

This is lovely - that you can find beauty in the everyday. It's a rare gift.

I was once planting a banana tree in my garden when I was suddenly and shockingly transported to a strange and terrifying place. Fortunately I was acquitted for lack of evidence only a couple of days later, but still had to pay my own bus fare home.

Have a lovely day, Boonie

Sue,
You know the Zen saying "Before enlightenment,Chop Wood Carry Water. After Enlightenment, Chop Wood Carry Water." I am not certain there was a camera involved in that progression but if there were, I believe that this may have been the outcome. It is simply stunning. SOOC should be your mantra for the day my dear. Lovely..lovely. By the way your new bannerhead and the background are simply divine. Thank you.
xoxo,
Noelle

SOOC? Amazing. Do you have settings that help this along? I'm agog over these pictures. And your banner is wonderful. I hope you keep it up for a while so we can enjoy it for a little bit.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
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…
