Post Cards from Paradise #2

Grey upon Grey,
but then
from nowhere,
slipping in unannounced
Glory upon Glory!
'An Appearance' 
Streaming Sunlight
shining on my canvas wall
I had to paint ...
I became intoxicated!

I'm intoxicated right along with you, Sue. Some words are so illustrative. They look, they sound, they feel exactly what they mean. Intoxication is one of those words no matter how or in what context you use it. There can never be any doubt when using the word intoxicated.

These photos are glorious, Sue! From grey to glory! I adore the image of gauze swirling around the stemware with the stream of golden light--sheer heaven! A blessed Sunday, Margaret

This series of photos is many-layered Sue Dear.
There is your own silhouette downcast with your lovely hair drawn back, then looking upward as the sunlight begins to stream through the room, the gauzy lace, the raising of the "chalice" in an almost sacred moment of color and all is silhouette, the wall being your canvas. It is really quite an astonishing series of photographs. Thank you for sharing such beauty and soulful depth with us today.
Loving you,
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! 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…
