These are a few of my favorite things:

a lovely friend and

her beautiful daughters (my models, smile);

the beach, the sea, the sun,

and The wonderful Island...

 

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad

  

"My Favorite Things"

  

Inspired by the song R E L E A S E M E/Oh Laura …..

 

“I am the wilderness locked in a cage

I am a growing force you kept in place

I am a tree reaching for the sun

Please don't hold me down

Please don't hold me down

 

I am a rolling wave without the motion

A glass of water longing for the ocean

I am an asphalt flower breaking free but you keep stopping me

Release me

Release me

 

I am the rain that's coming down on you

That you shielded yourself from with a roof

I am the fire burning desperately but you're controlling me

Release me

Release me”

We've let a clematis climb into the Magnolia Lilliflora Nigra (a late flowering magnolia) and for a short time both flower simultaneously.

The 'Chinese' of course refers to the Oriental origins of magnolia.

The dawn is breaking, a light shining through

I'm open, you're closed, where I follow, you'll go

I worry I won't see your face, light up again

 

Even the best fall down sometimes

Even the stars refuse to shine

Out of the back you fall in time

I somehow find

You and I collide

I thought I would end this week with one my own personal favourite from the series of reflection shot!

 

The top half is the original and the rest is obviously photoshopped but I feel that this is more the direction that I am heading for, making my photography more of an art form than just a straightforward image, some of you may not care for this type of vision but please let me know what you think?

   

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed

My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

 

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those

Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know

---Scott Wesemann

 

GREETINGS AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM HONDURAS!!!

-------------------------------------------------------

 

Estoy agradecida....

Por mi familia, por mi salud, por mi cama suavecita

Por mis amigos, mi libertad, por el techo sobre mi cabeza

 

Estoy agradecida por estar rodeada de aquellos

cuyas vidas me han tocado mas de lo que se puedan imaginar

 

SALUDOS Y GRACIAS DESDE HONDURAS!!

if each and everyone of those dew drops are pearls or diamonds :p

 

I'm amazed by the macro world thru my lens, at the Singapore Botanic Garden's Coolhouse...had a great time with the Facebook's Singapore Photographer's Macro outing.

 

Please also take a look at my friends excellent macro waterdrop shots. I love his clarity and focus! I believe it's the same clover leaf but taken at different height... next time I should bring along a stepping stool for myself :p

HBW!

If you move

I may fall

If you touch

I may fall

How long do I long to last

Suspended …

How long do I hold to last

Suspended …

If you look

I would hold

If you click

I would last

 

And click I did

And she did last!!!!!

My friends, wish you have a happy week@

I was chatting to this monkey on the common, he's called Barry, and halfway through his rather interesting suggestion about the benefits of hair straighteners he just fell silent....stared straight passed me.....said, "Fuck... me!" and scampered off into the distance...

I'll describe the way I feel...

Well open up your mind and see like me

Open up your plans and damn you're free

Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment, maybe sing with me

All - ah peaceful melody

And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved ..

 

I Love this song and the singer <33

"I believe in the sun even when it is not shining.

I believe in love even when I feel it not.

I believe in God even when He is silent."

~Unknown Jew during the Holocaust~

 

Such positive words to come at such a horrid time!

 

In the midst of perhaps the most terrible atrocity ever

perpetrated by 'civilized' Man, they refused to become less.

No one would have blamed them for heaping

imprecations on the heads of their oppressors,

or even that of their Creator. Instead they entered

fully into their humanity and left a message of hope

and love to inspire generations to come.

Memphis

When the wind blows her veil

And uncovers her laughter

I cease, I turn pale.

When the wind blows her veil

From the woes I bewail

Of love and hereafter:

When the wind blows her veil

I cease, I turn pale.

Thank you, Skeletal Mess, for your beautiful textures: growing old, and frost (from the Heavenly Vintage texture set).

I purposely did not add a description or a real title to this shot because I think it evokes different feelings in different people, so I don't want to influence that initial reaction.

Ciao alla MAMMA !!

Thank my love for all this !!!!!!!!!!!

Barragem Patudos, Alpiarça. Portugal

I like longing

climbing up the railings of sound and color

catching into my open mouth

the frozen scent

I like my loneliness

suspended higher

than a bridge

embracing the sky with its arms

and my love walking barefoot over the snow

  

Poem by Halina Poświatowska

My Sorrow, when she's here with me,

Thinks these dark days of autumn rain

Are beautiful as days can be;

She loves the bare, the withered tree;

She walks the sodden pasture lane.

 

Her pleasure will not let me stay.

She talks and I am fain to list:

She's glad the birds are gone away,

She's glad her simple worsted grey

Is silver now with clinging mist.

 

The desolate, deserted trees,

The faded earth, the heavy sky,

The beauties she so truly sees,

She thinks I have no eye for these,

And vexes me for reason why.

 

Not yesterday I learned to know

The love of bare November days

Before the coming of the snow,

But it were vain to tell her so,

And they are better for her praise.

 

-- Robert Frost

   

I'm bored, you can see it, happy night flickr ♥

My family and I went with some friends to cut down Christmas Trees, and by the end I had one picture left on my memory card, so I took this shot. It's a little different than what I'm used to... and it looks a lot better large.

... you by day towards the sun and by night towards the moon ...

"O amor que move o sol, como as estrelas."

O verso de Dante

é uma verdade resplandecente, e curvo-me ante a sua magnitude.

Ouso insinuar,

sem pretensão a contribuir

para que se desvende o mistério amoroso:

Amar se aprende amando

Sem omitir o real cotidiano,

também matéria de poesia.

[Carlos Drummond de Andrade]

thank you for viewing it.

We're so helpless

We're slaves to our impulses

We're afraid of our emotions

And no one knows where the shore is

We're divided by the ocean

And the only thing I know is

That the answer isn't for us

No the answer isn't for us
