Sheep Trending at Hardwick

Shaggy's 'funky-chic'
sheepishly strutting her stuff
trending at Hardwick


I could not resist a light hearted haiku here!

My mental meandering gripe when traveling around the countryside here in the UK is the state of sheep marking...!
"Why do they have to mark those poor fluffies with such an ugly aesthetic!?"
The sheep are not aware of course! ~ I think?
But ~  it does rather spoil my view of the country idyll seeing huge splodges of red, blue,
or black carelessly daubed over the poor little mites !

~ bla~bla~bla

Now here's a sheep worthy of the grandeur of her surroundings,
with her turquoise tufts, and multi-coloured tab-rings
I'm not a snob you understand!
But my Shaggy stands as an inspiration and aspiration to all of her contemporaries,
or should I say country cousin cohort farmers!

Wonder if it's going to catch on, watch this space...

I hope this does catch on! Color is good for the soul.
Awwww - poor sheep with their tufts and tags... But she is beautiful anyway! :) I haven't seen sheep in years! There are not herds of them around here like in lovely pastoral England :) Cute post!

I much prefer the turquoise tufts to the day-glow orange that was trending a few years ago. :-)

Delightful. It brought a note of light and cheer to an otherwise cold, gray, and blustery day.
Sheep---and haiku---are always worth a second look!

we just gave our poodle a bath… and this always makes me think of sheep… she's like a little lamb quivering in the tub. (no silly hair color or tags in her ears though)

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…
