Blurry

My trembling fingers
create artistic blurring
cloud's silver lining!





I have been unwell since before Christmas,
one of the symptoms was a loss of co-ordination and trembling hands,
the camera seemed too heavy for my fingers.
I'm glad to say the fog seems to be lifting,
once again I'm wielding my camera and more importantly
the desire to capture images and play with them has resurfaced!

Really my illness is becoming a little blurry too,
but because it was so severe losing about a stone in weight,
along with deep anxiety about the diagnosis of the scary tests
I want to remember all the painful details because some life affirming messages/changes have occurred,
an awakening of sorts!

that your fog is clearing makes my heart lift!
Such intense and scary times dear Sue... Am glad that it seems to be lifting, and that you are able to get back to what you love - creating with your camera! Am excited to hear that you were able to extract some life affirming messages through all this! Interesting how illness can work that way - opens us in a way that we didn't know could happen... Let's hope you are moving through this to health again! BE well!

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…
