Filed under ~ 'B'

The party animals have all slinked back to the woods now the bouncy castle
has been deflated and carried away for another year,
I have my memories though, filed under 'B' for Bliss and Beautiful.



Beautiful ~
Daughter-in-law ~ such a great host and party entrepreneur,
Sons ~ making sure all the animals were well fed from the barbecue, and watered!!
Daughter ~ reminding us all to keep cool in the heat
My love ~ quietly keeping all under control i.e. chief pot washer and tidy-er-upper!!

Bliss ~
This day was about Connie my granddaughter, in celebration of her first year of life, I see her only occasionally due to the distance so this was really special.  She is nearly walking and loves to lead me around the garden looking, touching and smelling the flowers, sometimes nearly eating them! We romped on the bouncy castle together early in the morning before the others arrived, getting our pants wet-through in the morning dew.

My greatest thrill of all came when we were looking out the window together at the flowers, I detected a real first time communication, she, pointing at the flowers said 'look', I was amazed, this marks the beginning of what I've been so looking forward to, the time when she can hold a conversation with me!

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

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…
