Changing the State - One Notch Up

I was quite surprised by the
comments I got on my last post about my 'Low' mood/state,
what others saw and read
into my words and
images.

Christine thought
my word 'low' was actually 'love' 
and said "'love' is a nice state to create from"!  

After giving this some thought I made this reply ~
Thank you Christine, yes I agree changing the 'state' 
can sometimes be an act of changing the 'meaning' of things, 
looking at the same thing in a different light!


Ana was a little disturbed 
by my eyes in the image, I thought?
What eyes, 
I never saw any eyes,
but when I looked again 
I did and they were sad eyes, 
so here I am going one notch up, 
I'm now looking at those sad eyes
in a different light, giving 
different meaning by 
adding a smiley face!































I'm changing the 'state',
going one notch up!

I'm sending my artistic work to line up with other photo artists
who gather at ~>

oh Sue, I LOVE the new photo. She looks exquisite, vibrant... Love it.
What a playful and creative way of showing how we tend to interpret things differently depending on our perspective! And in turn, how a change in perspective can change our state of being... I still "love" the 3 eyed one :) More eyes to *see* with :)

It is a total truism that no one ever sees the same thing in quite the same way. Views are always subjective. I like the idea of changing one's "state". Good decision.

Lovely images Mum. Noche (said no-tchey) means night so each night brings a new state with the morning...

What a great alteration you have made. There are always two sides to every situation and the one we react to the most is what will dicate our life. - I love your creative thinking.

Fabulous idea about "changing the state and going one notch up!" Inspiring. Turning sad eyes into happy ones. Very playful image.

turning the low state to a more happier one can only be good.. yes, one notch up.. your being will begin to vibrate to a higher frequency each time you do this.. and sometimes, you must just take time to sit and be.. xoxo

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
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…
