Lightning strikes the hillside during an evening storm in the desert-area west of Kamloops, BC. This was captured during a 30 second exposure.

Last night's earthquake was certainly an interesting experience, it woke me up, at first I thought it was raining because the window frames were making a tap tap noise, then I realized what was happening, nothing even fell in my house, but this was the strongest jolt I remember witnessing, it lasted a good 10 seconds at least.


The photo, is of Svolvaer, the Lofotenese megalopolis at dusk, the snow covered floating pier moved a little despite the calm water. The "prisms" at upper left corner are cod fish drying racks, lit up all night, as they are city's only (very smelly) tourist attraction, aside from the surrounding landscape.

I dedicate this photo to my friend and mentor, Gregory L. Lui-Kwan, Esq.

this morning I woke from a dream.

In the dream it’s night and i’m walking in a sort

Of undefined high prairie landscape.

And though i can’t see him, i can feel the presence of

A man that’s walking with me on my right side.

And i’m complaining to this presence that

i’m angry with god - i’m angry because god wants me

To do with my life things that i don’t want to do – I’m angry

Because god Wants me to be ways that i don’t want to be. And the presence says to me that i have it wrong, that i don’t

understand - that god only wants me to do what

i truly want to do in my truest deepest heart.

And then i’m alone and i spread my arms

And i begin to turn in circles and all the stars in the sky

Begin to revolve and move with me – and my turning creates

A great wind and as i’m turning faster and faster the stars begin

To streak and Blend together into a sky turned to light and i’m spinning

So fast that i begin to come apart and dissolve and become

A part of the Light


And then there’s a jolt and I wake up to one of my cats

Sitting on my chest wanting breakfast - and in my truest deepest heart

I want a cup of coffee and a cigarette



The date of construction of the stone fort is uncertain, although there are claims that a Jesuit Antonio Campioni built a stone fort in 1630, and the gate of the fort bears the date 1738 together with the arms of Castile and Leon. It is certain, however, that the fort underwent major renovations in the late 19th century as part of a building program to improve Cebu.


The victory of the Americans led by Commodore Dewey at the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898 marked the end of the Spanish era in the Philippine Islands. The fort was then surrendered by the Spaniards to the Cebuano revolutionaries.


Fort San Pedro became a part of the American Warwick barracks during the American regime. From 1937 to 1941 the barracks was converted into a school where many Cebuanos received their formal education. During World War II from 1942 to 1945, Japanese residents of the city took refuge within the walls. When the battle to liberate the city of Cebu from the Imperial Japanese forces was fought, the fort served as an emergency hospital for the wounded.


From 1946 to 1950, Fort San Pedro was an army camp. After 1950, the Cebu Garden Club took over and fixed the inner part and converted it into a miniature garden.


Although already in ruins, the upper deck was utilized for different offices. First, as a clinic of the City Health, as office of the Presidential Arm and Community Development then the City Public Works Unit used the ruins of the lieutenant's quarters as its field office.


In 1957 mayor Sergio Osmeña Jr. jolted the public with his announcement to demolish Fort San Pedro and erect on the spot a new City Hall. This started a movement against the demolition idea. Articles voicing opposition appeared in the local dailies and magazines in Cebu City and in Manila. Finally, confronted by civic leaders and society heads at his Cebu City Hall office, he gave up his idea and said he will use instead the space behind the fort.


In the very same year, the city council commissioned "The Lamplighter", a religious sect, to manage a zoo subsidized by the city within the fort courtyard.


By 1968, the façade, quarters and walls of the original structures of Fort San Pedro were so obliterated that only the two towers were recognizable. Plans for the restoration of the fort was started and the zoo was relocated.


Plans and estimates for the restoration of the fort were completed by architect Leonardo Concepción, who had completed his MA in Building restoration in Madrid. The project was jointly funded by the Board of Travel Industry (now Department of Tourism), the Cebu City Government, and the Cebu Zonta Club.


The Fort San Pedro restoration was a tedious, time and labor consuming project. To restore the fort as close to the original as possible, coral stones which were hauled from under the sea along Cebu coastal towns were utilized. Delivered crudely cut to the restoration site, the fort laborers did the final cutting and polishing to make the blocks fit each other.


Work progressed slowly but the façade, the main building, (Cuerpo de Guardia), the walk and the observatory roof garden were faithfully restored after one and a half years. To make the project functional; the restored main building serves then as the Cebu Office of the Department of Tourism, the lieutenant's quarters now houses a museum, the inner court is an open-air theater and its immediate vicinity is a park.


At present, it is under the care and administration of the city of Cebu,as a historical park under City Executive Order No. 08-87 of February 20, 2008. This order also known as Plaza Independencia - Fort San Pedro Interim Policy and Advisory Board (PIFSIPAB) appointed Hon. Michael L. Rama as overall overseer of the Plaza Independencia and Fort San Pedro. The land on which it is situated is, however, owned by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.


These days, part of the fort is a museum. Inside the fort houses the legacies of the Spanish Government: well preserved Spanish artefacts such as Spanish documents, paintings and sculpture. A large statue of Legazpi and Antonio Pigafetta may be seen outside the fort walls.

We just had a jolting 5.0 earthquake, near my house. It felt like a big one! Happy Blue Monday! :-) Another flower shot from the garden tour. :-)

I'm still needing a jolt of colour so here are some more tulips from my grocery to brighten your day:)

Emigrant Creek – Jackson County – Oregon - USA


“A shorebird you can see without going to the beach, Killdeer are graceful plovers common to lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, and parking lots. These tawny birds run across the ground in spurts, stopping with a jolt every so often to check their progress, or to see if they’ve startled up any insect prey. Their voice, a far-carrying, excited kill-deer, is a common sound even after dark, often given in flight as the bird circles overhead on slender wings….Killdeer spend their time walking along the ground or running ahead a few steps, stopping to look around, and running on again. When disturbed they break into flight and circle overhead, calling repeatedly. Their flight is rapid, with stiff, intermittent wingbeats.”

Best seen when Viewed LARGE On Black

Brilliant setting sunlight breaks through quickly parting clouds over west Wales,UK...I had a little bit of a jolt when I saw the photograph...It reminded me of the footage and photographs of the first A-blasts in the New Mexico and Nevada deserts in the forties and fifties...Just my imagination thankfully.

Water droplet refractions don't have to be complicated, and I've posted this one as proof. No editing outside of Lightroom, and just two plants placed together and sprayed with water. Voila! View large!


This image illustrates the simplicity in the concept, and also highlights some of the challenges. First off is depth of field. Razor-thin depth means you have to be incredibly deliberate with your focus. A refracted image may be in focus, but the outer edge of the droplet can be blurry.


This depth problem cannot be solved by the conventional means of using a smaller aperture. Light will diffract around a tiny aperture and bend off course, blurring the resulting image in a phenomenon we call "diffraction limiting".


The next challenge you'd see here is placement. Moving the flower closer or farther away would change its size in the droplets. Farther away would yield more of the petals, but it would also change the background composition (which is also created by the flower, but out of focus). Adjusting these two potted plants with no aid of any "third hand" tool takes some control away from the composition.


The next would be the droplets. If the two plants are close together when you spray, they'll both get covered in droplets equally. Call me picky, but I prefer the flower to be dry. However, spraying the grass and then moving the flower into place requires much more patience and careful movements. One slight jolt and those dangling droplets will fall!


This is as simplistic as I could make a droplet refraction photo: Two potted plants totaling $5.99 - a Gerbera Daisy and Blue Sprite Koeleria. The plants are pushed together on a table, sprayed with water, and the droplets are photographed. No complex setup, no tricky and time-consuming editing.

Hopefully this encourages people to go out and try it!

"Hairy Hands is a legend that built up around a stretch of road in Dartmoor in the English county of Devon, which was purported to have seen an unusually high number of motor vehicle accidents during the early 20th century. The legend of the Hairy Hands is set in Postbridge, Dartmoor. The road is now known as the B3212.


According to the story surrounding them, the Hairy Hands are a pair of disembodied hands that appear suddenly, grab at the steering wheel of a moving car or the handlebars of a motorcycle, and then force the victim off the road. In some cases the hands are described as being invisible. Since around 1910, drivers and cyclists have reported suffering unusual accidents along the road between Postbridge and Two Bridges. In many cases, the victims reported that their vehicle had jolted or swerved violently and steered off the side of the road, as if something had taken hold of the wheels and wrenched it out of their control."

The great forest, absolutely silent, save for the music of the brook, the smell of the woods, the charm of the campfire, the fragrance of the bed of boughs, all work a peace in the mind which has been accustomed for so many months to the noise and rush of the great city, the jolting of the railway train, and the smoke and dust of the locomotive.

Fall season is here. It's my favorite season of the year.The summer heat seemed to linger but fall is here to stay. The air is starting to get chilly. The fog hasn't rolled in yet. This was taken last year at the park near our house. Still don't have anything to shoot. I need some jolt of creative juice...some inspiration..something, I guess. Have to dig in the vault again.

The Peruvian Paso is a breed of pleasure saddle horse known for its smooth ride. It is distinguished by a uniquely natural gait called the paso llano which is a lateral four beat gait. [...] This characteristic gait was utilized for the purpose of covering long distances over a short period of time without tiring the horse or rider... The gait supplies essentially none of the vertical bounce that is characteristoc of the trot... The rider's back feels no strain or jolt. Hence, this is a favored mount for riders with back trouble.

This was the beginning of an interesting afternoon. The clouds hopscotched over the mountains all day, dropping rain when they passed. Late that afternoon I went up to Gothic to do some long exposure shots of a thunderstorm.. Wedged between the mountains, I thought I was low enough to be safe from the strengthening storm. I was wrong and got zapped by lightning. Obviously it was stray energy, but it was enough that I felt the jolt through my arms, dissipating in my chest cavity. I was about a quarter mile from my car, but the trek back was quick. Panic is an excellent motivator. Won't forget this day anytime soon.

More stars. What can I say? I like stars :)


I've been tagged several times by various people. And I haven't written one of these for a while, probably because I'm not really that interesting. But here goes, I'm playing along. Ten things about me:


1) I did my first day at my new job this week. So far, so good. It's nice to be learning some new things :)

2) I just got back from a drink with a friend who's leaving to go to university in another city next week. More people were meant to come, but then they all cancelled. It feels weird that most people I spent the last two years at college with are all leaving. And I'm still here ...

3) I had an 'Apple Pie' cocktail. Hm interesting.

4) I'm a little obsessed with this band at the moment :)

5) I'm 20 years old. Lately I've been thinking that if I died when I was 80, then I'm already a quarter of the way through my life.

6) I'm suprisingly morbid and I talk about death a lot. I don't think that comes through in my photos.

7) I'm really not looking forward to Winter. I might migrate ... like a bird. I just don't have any wings. Damn.

8) When I was a toddler, I used to eat soil :)

9) I'm usually in my own little day-dream world in my head. Then I meet some kind of rude, scummy person and it's always a jolt to remember that not everyone is thinking about bunting and vintage things and pretty colours and creating photographs.

10) But I wish people were :)

I've been seeing all these gorgeous dandelion pics lately on Flickr. This definitely isn't a beauty of a dandelion but I still liked the spiky shape.


About the red - I'm trying to give myself a jolt of energy. I have a bad sinus infection...been on the couch for a week straight. So, this is my little form of visual therapy today. Sometimes I just need to see some deep rich red, it comforts me. I love how color affects me like that.

I'm in love with this pier, it jolts out from land pretty far and it wraps around for a 200+ degree view of the horizon.

I don't actually have a business, just my name and number on adorable lil cards.

For those of lus who need a jolt of colour! Here are three shots of the same tulip, never sure which one is the best. Stay dry and well:)

A jolt of cobalt! Rather than sparkle, you get a nice matt look with fun polka dots. Very in. sold

For a quick caffeine jolt, just reach for pocket coffiee! I did promise something different than my usual flower photos ... I was fooling around taking macro shots of various colourful things. Not many of the shots turned out, but I liked the colours of this box.

STORYLINE: It started beautifully at first. She dreamed of riding a carousel as the sun set. A haunting melody of a distant piano wafted in the gentle breeze. Suddenly, something pressed her down. The ornate wooden horses turned black. They bobbed up and down, around and around, faster and faster. She had became the carousel! She was trapped! Terrified, she jolted out of her nightmare only to discover something heavy was on her chest. Two menacing red eyes pierced darkness looking back at her.

the other evening i walked over to my desk where gaia was listening to music, and felt a jolt of strong sorrow.

she had been out at the pool, and found my dragonfly friend, ( the one i saved from our back porch) floating on top of the cool water, she knew i'd want to keep it, and so left it on my desk for me.


and so now, it's found a home in my collection of symbols of longing.

my visual reminders that longing expressed is always a beautiful thing.


INJUSTO. Una tragedia de estas características es injusta siempre, sea donde sea. No obstante, en Nepal adquiere una dimensión desorbitada. En un país con escasas infraestructuras, con edificios que crecen por doquier de forma precaria, un terremoto de esta magnitud es como una sacudida brusca sobre un castillo de naipes.


En un momento como este, me solidarizo con el pueblo nepalí, aunque sea desde el recuerdo, con una de las imágenes que tomé en Patán hace 2 años.

Quizás, ya no quede nada en pie de lo que vemos en esta imagen.


UNFAIR. A tragedy like this is unfair always, wherever that it occurs. However, in Nepal it acquires an enormous dimension. In a country with poor infrastructures, with buildings that grow everywhere precariously, an earthquake of this magnitude is like a sharp jolt on a house of cards.


At this moment, I sympathize with the Nepalese people. This is one of the pictures I took in Patan two years ago.

Perhaps, there is nothing left standing of what we see in this picture.
