Taking Notes

I've been taking note, sifting and sorting both physically and mentally,
I like to have a good old clear out now and again,
to re-evaluate the worth of things...




Parring down to the essentials and simplifying has always been a way of life for me ~
My motto is if I don't use it, appreciate it, believe in the worth of it then it has to go...

This is my 495th post, I am also nearing my four year blogging anniversary and thinking about where I am going with it all. I'm not saying I'm about to give up my beloved 'FMB' but that I feel I have become somewhat scattered, maybe even a little lost!  Initially it was all about my images, I was in photography heaven for two whole years, shooting, posting and writing.  I was eager to post and took current advice to just let my blog 'evolve' which I did. I'm glad to say I did for I have met some wonderful, soulful bloggers over the years and experienced a real sense of belonging and love, but here's the thing, somewhere along the way I feel I have diluted myself, that I have lost some of my integrity, sense of purpose, which I want to re-capture.

I have many abstract swirlings going round my head with regard to photography and how I see it and none of these are do with technique but everything to do with life and living in the moment, intuitive photography it is called. It is wonderful, all embracing, therapeutic, even life changing...

So this is my intention:

To gather myself back to me, to concentrate my effort, to focus and become more creative in my offerings in both words and image, to look for new ways to connect.  I might go a bit quiet here while this is going on, I might even re-name my blog with the 500th post, I might lose some of my present connections but I have to listen to this strong voice within. Always!

Yours intuitively.... SF

I totally get this... Diluting yourself, needing to be true to your Heart and your own unique expression, and the need to refocus. I am feeling it too. I have found your posts rich, authentic and heartfelt, and I enjoy visiting here. I look forward to more of your "intuitive photography" :)

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-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
