Proverbial Thursday – World Sayings

I find there to be profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and I marvel at the way they are so succinct in communicating messages to the reader. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and from across cultures. They speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes, like proverbs,… Continue reading Proverbial Thursday – World Sayings


Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: The Streets

Sally's weekly phoneography challenge is here and I particularly liked her quote to add to my photographic meanderings in November: Joyously or not the photograph becomes the source of reality, but it can also become a dreamlike force for interpretation.

The weekly photo challenge asks us to use a SLR or smartphone to produce a Bokeh effect, which is my assignment this week.

The Clinic Photo Rehab #1 (Mozart)

"The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge." Eckhart The bug has hit...well it hit some time ago. The incessant need to take photos or have a camera or smartphone with you, just in case you need to take a photo. And it is always when you don't have your camera that the BEST photo opportunity arises. It is kind of like the fish that got away, isn't it....
