Virgins, Creativity & Gratitude #7

 This has been a surreal journey 
of dizzying heights, I'm seeing Mary
from every angle in all her
beauteous forms.
Thinking on Mary and the glitter
of the season as I leafed through
some magazines I couldn't
 resist the temptation to tear a few pages 
for my favourite art-form collage.

Day 7 contribution ~
Collage Mary, Queen of the Heavens

It also happens to be my sister's wedding anniversary,
we are out celebrating tonight,
I dedicate this collage to Dallas who was a
beauty queen herself once,
and still is!

Grateful for sister love.

'Virgin a Day'

Such a creative collage and tribute to Our Lady ~ and your sister ~~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy AVAD ^_^
Love your creativity. Is that your sister's photo in the center. Looks like a real person. My only sister died at age 32 when I was 34. That was almost 40 years ago. She is a saint in heaven to me. This makes me think of her.Blessings

Sue,
This is your creativity at its best. So beautiful and full of love and light. I am so uplifted by it. And of course it has to do with the celebration of a loved one. You are so connected to family and Mary has made that connection ever stronger. I love the butterflies in this collage ~transformation, always transformation and dreaming forward. Beautiful! Thank you for your lovely words today. I couldn't get here till now because of work. Much love to you and have fun tonight with your sister.
xoxo,
Noelle
Collage is my own favorite art medium and I love your modern day Mary. Congratulations to your sister-in-law and brother.

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…
