“,,,With my eyes closed, I would touch a familiar book and draw its fragrance deep inside me. This was enough to make me happy. ” ― by Haruki Murakami

Just a snapshot to let you all know that Bug's book is now up for sale. FINALLY. I'm sorry I took so long, I have no excuses really. But here you go.


Thanks so much for all your support and just everything. I owe a lot to my flickr friends!


Oh and, FM me if you live would like one and in the UK and would prefer not to buy from Blurb. :)

I wish you all a wonderful first day of New Year 2011 !

In a good book the best is between the lines.

The book of love has music in it,

In fact that's where music comes from.

Some of it is just transcendental,

Some of it is just really dumb.

But I,

I love it when you sing to me.

And you,

You can sing me anything.

Kurdes, de l'ombre à la lumière


Région autonome depuis 2003, le Kurdistan irakien, longtemps en proie à la guerre, est peu connu des occidentaux. À travers un travail inscrit dans la tradition de la photographie humaniste, Emmanuel Smague nous invite à découvrir un peuple chaleureux, au lendemain de son oppression sous le régime de Saddam Hussein. Il nous dévoile ainsi les multiples facettes de cet endroit du monde dont les habitants représentent la première richesse et nous ouvre les yeux sur une humanité réfugiée sur ses propres terres, celles de ses ancêtres. Le témoignage d’Emmanuel Smague renvoie les regards des Kurdes à nos propres indifférences, pour mieux les graver dans nos mémoires.

Kurds, from darkness to light


An independent region since 2003, Iraqi Kurdistan, war-torn for many years, is little known among Westerners. Through his work in the humanist photographic tradition, Emmanuel Smague invites us to discover a warm people as it emerges from the oppression of Saddam Hussein’s regime. He reveals to us the many faces of this part of the world where people constitute the main wealth and he opens our eyes to people who are refugees on their own land -- the land of their ancestors. Through Emmanuel Smague’s testimonial, our eyes meet the gaze of the Kurds’ eyes lifting the veil of our indifference and indelibly engraving images deep into our memories.

Happy Cliché Saturday!


{day two hundred thirty-seven}

Exploring the ghost town of Colonias, NM, and I came across this decaying adobe house. One of the walls had worn through and a bookcase, complete with books, was visible. It's amazing that they were in such good shape considering they are exposed to the desert weather.


Thank you for the likes, comments and especially the follows.

for an essay about a used book fair.

Well check that one off the list. Definitely long on my bucket list was this magical location. Of course I had to add to the series.

Seemed like a good theme since March is reading month.

DAY 25: Books


Some children today view reading as a boring chore, but experts encourage parents to recognise the importance of helping children to view books as another form of entertainment just like their other toys.


We have had children’s books around our home since our three year old Son was born. It started with cloth books and plastic bath time books and then things progressed to board books. Now though paper page books have come into their own and he just loves looking at books and listening while Mummy and Daddy read his favourite stories. Our little baby girl is similarly taking an interest in cloth books and we have no doubt that she will develop a great love for books, like her older brother.


Currently our little boy loves all the Disney stories in book form including Jungle Book, Bambi, Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians. Annuals are another favourite including Bob the Builder, Postman Pat, Thomas the Tank Engine and Winnie the Pooh. Other books he loves include Ladybird books on a wide range of subjects including Visiting the Dentist, Going Swimming, Playschool and Busy Building Site. Having a large range of books available means that he doesn’t get bored and his interest in reading and books is constantly kept strong.


As today’s image hopefully shows, books come in all shapes and sizes, all with a great deal of colour. When you watch a child open a book, you can see straight away that their imagination is awakened and their minds appreciate hearing or reading the words on the pages come to life. As they learn to read the foundation laid during the early years bears fruit as children develop a lifelong love for reading.


Note: the set up for this image meant that the Bambi book was nearly a meter off the ground. There were a huge number of items keeping the books in place (wooden blocks, other books etc). We had one collapse where every book fell to the ground and we had to start again. Eventually we set the camera up with a deep depth of field, a direct link to the PC and we managed to get the required shot pretty quickly. This demonstrates that the time taken in setting up is rewarded.
