Haiku for Virgins, Creativity & Gratitude #9

Painterly Mary
may I delight for all-time 
in your flouncing skirts
in whatever light I find you!

I thought I'd get the paints out, 
they have been in a dark cupboard.
In this case not actually paint but 
water based dye and rub-on metallic for those interested,
photo taken in two different artificial lights. 

For Haiku my Heart
&
'Virgin a Day'

love is the strongest pull.
thank you for your place in my haiku/mary heart!

sue,
She is absolutely delightful! She is fairylike and beautiful. In fact, she looks much like Botticelli's women. All his goddesses were pregnant. I wonder if you were thinking of your daughter in law. Such a beautiful coloring of dyes you chose. It was such a pleasant and joyful surprise.
xox,

Mary is beautiful!
She is so beautiful and I love that she is painterly. I haven't used my own metallic rub on paints for years. I have to dig mine out as I really like the colors you created.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

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…
