Today I ... Gentleness behind the Lens

Today I'm feeling a bit fragile and lacking energy... this feeling is not new to me,
an old bed partner you might say, for sometimes that's where I retreat.


I have been asked in the past if I suffer with ME...
I don't think so but as long as I remember energy has always been lacking
especially after some event like last weekend ~ our female communal birthday party.

So I need a soft spot to linger and just Be with it, knowing it's just a wave from my ocean of being.
What helps is to gently let-go of any expectations of myself, go where the pace is slow, grounded and
loving, to me that's where my camera is, I can enter another world behind the lens.

A world that supports, nourishes and feeds my spirit like no other... today I'm finding a gentleness behind the lens tomorrow it will be something other... but always behind the lens it is my way of expressing,
my art.

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…
