Contemplating the Mary Journey

She could have been anyone's
daughter,
sister,
friend
or
lover...



the details I could not say....
for she was travelling alone like the rest of us,
on a journey to somewhere, this we had in common
and, she was alone with her thoughts too like me
it seemed, heavy or light I could not be sure,
but for sure both would play their part on
some scale sooner or later, and like
me and you she would
need a mother
for,
we all do.

my dear friend, i love your image...so universal and immediate, the thoughts of a woman's heart playing out against the moving backdrop of life. and so it is for us all. at once hidden and exposed, our inner most yearnings, the hard work of being reborn every day.
your compassion rings out and touches me deeply. aren't we all sojourners of the heart? at once mother, and yet still child. at once healer, and also the healed.

a stunning image, dredging into the heart of her stillness! I think our need for a mother never leaves us.

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…
