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.

This is so very beautiful - your words, photos and feelings. There is so much of beauty in the ordinary.

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…
