Red Rage Release

I am searching my image file as I type,
I need an image to match and express my emotion,
there are not many for my images are mostly soft, my emotion is not...

I've found one but it is a little on the subtle-side,
I need to intensify, sharpen, define, deepen...


I'm feeling red rage,
the need to rant, riot, respond...
breathe in, breathe out ~ sigh...

My daughter's mental health downturn has meant she's been off work sick for sometime,
she knows she cannot return to her work,
the organisation who employ her have no alternative but to
terminate her employment, she understands this...
but the method of dismissal, the legal implications,
the monster of a system that has been created
for this purpose is one that makes me feel
SICK.

They are taking a sledge hammer to crack a tiny seed, my tiny seed,
I'm feeling Red Rage.

Intuitively yours....SF

Oh I know this feeling! Frustration for sure! Am glad you are working it out through art, letting those deep feelings express. I love the deep rich red tones in your piece, and the contrast of shadow and light...

Sending peace across the waters...
Hugs, C

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…
