I recently visited North Holland, photographing the flowers (fields). Totally outside my comfort zone but also very nice to do!

Originally, I was going to exclude this shot from my website (for technical reasons) but it's proved to be very popular on other social media platforms. For a limited time only, this image will appear on my website in the 'Latest Landscape Images' gallery. Thanks for looking - Mk.






...formerly titled: "Hommage à l’anti-Saint-Valentin"


I have so many hearts in my Flickr photostream. (In fact, the Big Heart of Art just hit 100,000 views yesterday!)


Matters of the heart are not always clean and pure and simple. Some are not covered by any Valentine's day card. With this in mind, I created a few images representing less desirable states of the heart that we all get caught up in from time to time.


Need for a New Title


After some insightful comments from you, my flickr friends, I wanted to change the title of this piece to help distinguish:

• the feelings (states of the heart) symbolized here (excluded, isolated, alone)

• the feelings symbolized in the subsequent heart image (trapped, imprisoned, helpless)


I had already decided to name the other piece Prisoner of the Heart, which I thought captured it well. Trying to decide on the right title for this piece, I wanted it to clearly describe and distinguish this piece from the other, while still have a parallel phrasing (since the two images do form a group...)


How I Chose The New Title


I remembered of a Valentine's Day poem I wrote many years ago for my (now late) spouse. Particularly this excerpt:


being apart

that's a splash of cold reality

it's estrangement of the heart

it's the burning of great art!


and Estrangement of the Heart became the obvious title.

Every time I've looked through the view finder of late, I've tended to have a single thought: what to exclude? I have no idea why minimalism appeals to me so much as an art form. It's not just photography, I'm a sucker for clean simple design as well. I should note at this point that this appreciation seems restricted to art, you should see the mess I can make of a kitchen when cooking. Curiously, if you google famous minimalist photographers, you're not exactly inundated with results. Sure, there are some of the greats, but interestingly when I did this recently there were a few names I was less aware of. One was Harry Morey Callahan (1912-1999). Callahan's 100,000+ negatives are now with the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, however, the amount of 'finished' prints he produced is extremely small. If you've never seen his work, then I thoroughly recommend googling him, his work is spread across a number of galleries.


This is the last in the series of images taken on the banks of Loch Lomond, and as this post suggests, I've just about managed to exclude all but the last few rocks leading from the shore.

I think this is the back of the scoreboard at Florence's main stadium which I have featured in other photos. I am not sure what those boxes are for.


I was unsure about posting this photo, but I have decided to go for a tighter and cleaner crop, and to slightly increased the contrast

Excluding antenna, this little fella was about 5mm long.

Sometimes humans have to be excluded from nature to let it flourish.


Single exposure. Photographed through a gate that was locked.


Nature conservation area with in the background the first row of dunes. It is a nature restoration project in the dune fringe-zone of a former tulip field in the vicinity of Wassenaar / The Netherlands.


Background info:

Because of their transitional position in between the nutrient poor, dry dunes and the nutrient rich, wet polder-area, dune fringe-zones are rich in natural gradients and subsequently they show a high variety in, often rare, plant species. Due to the intensive use of coastal sand dunes for drink water production, logging and pine planting severe desiccation occurred. Further deterioration of the dune fringe-zone was caused by sand extraction; often followed by flattening and manuring the area for flower bulb cultivation. Thus, natural dune fringe-zones have almost completely disappeared in The Netherlands. Parts of the inner dune fringes have been restored by sod cutting (followed by a grazing or mowing regime), other parts by opening up forests and where possible restoring old dune streams.


From Bjørn van den Boom, Kees Bruin & Harrie van der Hagen: Restoring natural dune fringe-zones in The Netherlands:

happy easter, flickr!

these three (excluding miyu who will be 2 in july!) were in my easter photos quite a lot so i thought sure why not. and you guys haven't seen the latest addition to their gang hehe

today's been lovely also. i mean a day dedicated to chocolate can't not be brilliant haha.


i'm considering beginning a 100 day project with my dolls on this account. i know it sounds ridiculous considering i can't keep up with 52 weeks, but it's getting lighter now, and somehow hotter (not today though but you know never mind) which gives me more motivation. and i've seriously missed the dolly world and photographing these beauties!


i have another photo of dawn to upload tomorrow, though i'm considering just uploading it now who knows


hope you all had a gorgeous easter :)

Although I am not a religious person, I was very impressed to learn about this priest's mission.


A catholic priest fights for animal welfare.

On October 2011, a catholic priest will set out for the Pontifex with the demand to make animal welfare a matter of the churchly message to the believers.

On 2nd and 3rd October 2011 the catholic priest Tomasz Jaeschke will go on a pilgrimage to Rome, in silence, praying, fasting and blessing animals.


On 4 th of October 2011, the day of Saint Franziskus, he will be at the Vatican, still in silence, praying, fasting and blessing animals.

On this day he will also hand over this petition including all your signatures, a personal letter and all the letters you wrote, to the Pontifex.


With this mission the priest wants to remind the church, that animals are equally creatures of god and that the church has to ask their believers to protect animals.

We support this mission as Christians, and we follow the requests of the priest Tomasz Jaeschke in all points. We ask the catholic church to finally perform their moral, ethical and religious duties:


If you don't ask questions, you will never understand why.


The family Passifloraceae is found world wide, excluding Europe and Antarctica. Nine species of Passiflora are native to the USA, found from Ohio to the north, west to California and south to the Florida Keys. Species of the genus are found in most of South America as well as China and Southern Asia (with 17 species), New Guinea, Australia (with four, possibly more species) and New Zealand (with a single endemic species).

Africa has many members of the family Passifloraceae, (the rather more primitive Adenia) but no Passiflora.

Species of Passiflora have been naturalised beyond their native ranges. For example Passiflora caerulea now grows wild in Spain [1].

...The unusual shape of the flowers has led to the plant being associated in Christian symbolism with the passion of Jesus; the three stigmas representing the three nails used to nail Jesus to the cross, the ovary and its stalk represent the chalice of the Last Supper, the five anthers represent the five wounds, the corona represents the crown of thorns, the ten 'petals' (actually five petals and five sepals) the apostles (save Judas the traitor and Peter the denyer); the old leaves also represent the hands of those who persecuted him, the young leaves the point of the lance used to stab him, and the tendrils the whips of those who beat him.

Excluding her legs, this little spider was barely 3mm long but she seemed to be waiting for bees. She's sitting here on an Indian Blanket flower.

Generally, EM radiation, or EMR (the designation 'radiation' excludes static electric and magnetic and near fields) is classified by wavelength into radio, microwave, infrared, the visible region that we perceive as light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

The behaviour of EMR depends on its wavelength. Higher frequencies have shorter wavelengths, and lower frequencies have longer wavelengths. When EMR interacts with single atoms and molecules, its behaviour depends on the amount of energy per quantum it carries.

EMR in the visible light region consists of quanta (called photons) that are at the lower end of the energies that are capable of causing electronic excitation within molecules, which lead to changes in the bonding or chemistry of the molecule. At the lower end of the visible light spectrum, EMR becomes invisible to humans (infrared) because its photons no longer have enough individual energy to cause a lasting molecular change (a change in conformation) in the visual molecule retinal in the human retina. This change triggers the sensation of vision.

There exist animals that are sensitive to various types of infrared, but not by means of quantum-absorption. Infrared sensing in snakes depends on a kind of natural thermal imaging, in which tiny packets of cellular water are raised in temperature by the infrared radiation. EMR in this range causes molecular vibration and heating effects, and this is how living animals detect it.

This is a shot from Neist Point but excluding the classic location. This is looking back to Waterstein Head with in my opinion the best light we had all wekk. It started off intense and golden, slowly changing and getting richer and it dropped through each layer of cloud finally turning into a deep red which was almost unbelievable even to the naked eye. Was very pleased with it and I was running around like a kid snapping away which isn't my usual style!

Excluding the two heritage vehicles, this is possibly the oldest vehicle in the Eastons fleet. Today it was used on a school contract and is seen here parked up on the outskirts of Norwich City Centre.
