The topic for this blog post came to me a few weeks ago whilst listening to Lou Reed ~ Caroline Says II, but as it is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25th November I decided to wait and post it now. If you can spare a few minutes to read I would appreciate it. Thank you.
Shot at Water Lantern Festival
Taken on my trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
On the fabulous property of the HALF MOON Resort sits this little boat, I would say it is about 10' long. They restored it and here is what was written at the site.
"Fifteen refugees, eleven men, two women and two children sailing from Cuba in this boat made landfall here on March 8, 1996. Some settled in Jamaica and others were accepted by the United States of America.
Their boat has been restored and will be maintained on this site as a tribute to all those, anywhere in the world, who risk their lives for dream of freedom."

You may be the best photographer in the world, but sometimes all it takes for the best shot is being in the right place at the right time!
It doesn’t even matter if you take it with your mobile phone or high-end DSLR.
Have a wonderful Sat/Sun!
Nice to be back, had a virus and was unwell for a few days!
with joy, spirit and humor into the new week, dear friends....... :-)

"Freedom is not something that anybody can be given. Freedom is something people take, and people are as free as they want to be." - James Baldwin
Today was lovely. The weather was lovely. People are lovely. Loveliness is everywhere goddammit! Except in the mountain of essays I have to write tonight. Damn.
I made these wings myself - believe it or not, no shops anywhere in Buxton sell normal white feathers. So I went to the park, and found a goldmine of them! Just lying around!!! I am so happy with how they came out, I never want to take them off! I have lots of outtakes from this shoot, which I haved uploaded to our blog!
Oh, and that little cluster of houses in the background is my town! :) I am up on Corbar Cross, a big hill near my house!
>>The secret of happiness is freedom and the secret of freedom is courage.

A shot of the Manhattan Skyline and the Freedom Tower from the Hudson River.
Freedom of thought and expression are two of the most basic tenants of any free society.
Without those two things, you do not have a free society.
We went to a must see movie this weekend. In Ben Stein’s (“Ferris Bueller's Day Off.”) new documentary movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed Ben shows how little academic freedom exists in our universities if you want to discuss unpopular topics like the origins of life.
Much of the academic world thinks that the conversation should be closed because Darwinian Evolution has answered all of those questions… But, is that true????
If you do not think that is true as a professor, get ready to loose you job. Yes, that politically incorrect thought has been banned in the university… I thought the university was a place of open discussion and thought???? Think again…
At one point in the movie… (this most unbelievable point I think ) Ben is interviewing Richard Dawkins and pressing him on the point of where did that actual first cell come from for all life to begin so that everything could evolve from it.
Richard actually believes that some advanced life source from outer space seeded our planet with that first cell… Can you believe this stuff???? And he is the one that gets paraded out all the time as the expert in this area…
Well, my recommendation is to go see the movie…

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor, was built by Gustave Eiffel and dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
Bartholdi was inspired by French law professor and politician Édouard René de Laboulaye, who is said to have commented in 1865 that any monument raised to American independence would properly be a joint project of the French and American peoples. He may have been minded to honor the Union victory in the American Civil War and the end of slavery. Due to the post-war instability in France, work on the statute did not commence until the early 1870s. In 1875, Laboulaye proposed that the French finance the statue and the Americans provide the site and build the pedestal. Bartholdi completed the head and the torch-bearing arm before the statue was fully designed, and these pieces were exhibited for publicity at international expositions.
The torch-bearing arm was displayed at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876, and in Madison Square Park in Manhattan from 1876 to 1882. Fundraising proved difficult, especially for the Americans, and by 1885 work on the pedestal was threatened due to lack of funds. Publisher Joseph Pulitzer of the New York World started a drive for donations to complete the project that attracted more than 120,000 contributors, most of whom gave less than a dollar. The statue was constructed in France, shipped overseas in crates, and assembled on the completed pedestal on what was then called Bedloe's Island. The statue's completion was marked by New York's first ticker-tape parade and a dedication ceremony presided over by President Grover Cleveland.
The statue was administered by the United States Lighthouse Board until 1901 and then by the Department of War; since 1933 it has been maintained by the National Park Service. Public access to the balcony surrounding the torch has been barred for safety reasons since 1916.

Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta ~ 2010
We visited the September 11 Memorial and Museum last weekend. It was an emotion and moving experience. Looking up at the Freedom Tower.
No Photoshop effects, just color correction and dust cleaning, this is the actual behind the scene setup.
“No matter how old are you, if you’re brave enough to do this, you’ll feel the true freedom” :)
*Imagine they are running with a slow motion effect with this song.
Again, maybe it’s nothing new using the dome piece as a balloon, but I have this ideas for quite a while, which are:
1. Taking an upside down build to use gravity on strings or chains.
2. Making a moving/motion blur effect (panning photography) with bricks.
And it turns out this mystery part fits for me to finally make those ideas into reality, though it turns out it really took a very long time to shot this scene to get the right lighting and angle…I guess I won’t do this kind of trick for a long time…hahahaha

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is to face trial for breaching the conditions of her detention under house arrest, her lawyers have said.
Ms Suu Kyi will stand trial on 18 May, lawyer Hla Myo Myint told reporters.She was taken to a prison from her home in Rangoon, where she has spent most of the past 19 years, to hear the charges.
My friends........before leaving I wish to show you a pic i took in Burma years ago....... with the hope Aung san Suu can be freed and democracy can win.........
... is not negotiation. Freedom is not from something or for something. Freedom is not positive either. Its transcendence of negotiation and affirmation both. Freedom from duality. Knowing is freedom, not the fear, not the anger, not the enmity, not the rebellion. Only knowing is freedom.
libertà nel mondo per tutti, donne e uomini
Buon 8 Marzo a tutte le "colleghe" :)
