Stumbling towards ecstasy at Hardwick Hall

Hardwick Hall 
More Glass than Wall
Side entrance to my neighbour's house.

Side view of front entrance, her horse 
dismounting platform in the foreground.
View from her front entrance, 
looking towards my cottage 
just beyond the ponds.
Much stumbling towards ecstasy has,
and does go on here!

All will be revealed!

Thank you for your lovely comments Rebecca, always gratefully received!

My town is Chesterfield about sixty miles south of York, I think you told me you visited York? My cottage is close by the M1 motorway, junction 29. I've been told you can see my campervan, my love and Dougal on Google Earth!

Oh, my! This is transporting, this country side and where you live.
This is so gorgeous and your neighbor definitely has a very distinctive estate. But, there you are in your cottage and you are all in the same neighborhood.

Well Sue my dear, this is a fine broad prospect. I am waiting for Mr. Rochester to come galloping round the corner at any moment as he makes his way back to Thornfield Hall. Really lovely digs here. Thank you so much for sharing this bit of English manor countryside.

Noelle

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!
