One of the side benefits of having kids is that they have all sorts of things laying around that you, as an adult, just wouldn't. Like bubble sauce!


A few weeks ago my son was out playing, so I grabbed his bubble sauce and started messing around in the garden. I'd done it before (see here and here), but my son was wielding the magic wand that time. This time, I was running madly between creating bubbles and then photographing them, all on my little ownsome! It was mayhem, but a lot of fun and this image was the best of the bunch.


I'll add that this is pretty much straight out of the camera. I ran it through Photoshop for a crop and some jiggery-pokery on the colour, but not much.


Small milestones:

Yay - my first photo to reach 100 favs!


Many thanks to everyone! I appreciate each and every comment :-)

“I'd be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.” - Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle - Suede, Marion Meadows


"When you fly a balloon you don’t file a flight plan; you go where the wind goes. You feel like part of the air. You almost feel like part of eternity, and you just float along." ~ Jeannette Piccard


"Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return." ~ Da Vinci


"You know what I saw today?," said the Old Fisherman, "I saw a balloon in the sky. A red one. I like the red ones most. Well, the balloon's string got caught way up on the top of a tall light pole. There it was, just laid out in the wind, y'know, gently moving about.


I don't know how long it was up there, can't imagine how long it's gonna' last. Although, I think its fresh, y'know. Like it just got there. I doubt it could be one that is a left over - one that could have survived aloft, floating around in the sky, like, from autumn until now, over the long, cold winter.


So, perhaps someone recently bought it, and it got away from them. Or, they decided to let it go. Sort of like releasing their coiled and pent up sense of existing ... of being spiritually constrained by the the capricious weather of this past winter.


You let go of a balloon, and as you watch it rise and get swept by the wind, it feels like it's you. It's your spirit that gets released as an expression of hope and joy for the days of April and May that are on the way. And if it gets caught on something, and ends up waving around in the wind, well, I guess its akin to being a flag....a flag dancing and waving in honor of your spirit and of spring to come."


"Which reminds me," the old fisherman continued, "somewhere, a river is beginning to lose its covering of ice, and its waters have started to move. Beneath the surface, life is stretching like after a long sleep, and its beginning to stir. Some nice fish will seek to sun themselves of the warmth of the shallow waters. I think I will go stand in those shallow, flowing waters, under a sun that warms my face like a gently applied warm, moist towel, and try to catch me one."

A zebra swallowtail butterfly I caught up with at Saunders Spring in Radcliffe, Kentucky. This little guy was very hungry and flying all over the place searching for the right flower! This butterfly only lays eggs on pawpaw trees. I have only seen one in Louisiana and one in Alabama but I find them occasionally in Kentucky

I took the picture laid down on the floor with a wide-angle, and the result was funky

Absolutely bathed in golden.


I think the reason I like this is because this setup wasn't for a picture.

I was in one of those moods where I just needed to be still. To think. To completely change pace and forget about all those little things which tend to mentally pile up.

I wanted to simply be.


To pause and linger over little details.

I ran my finger along the wood, willing my finger to memorize the feel. I wanted to remember every moment of a quiet minute. The way each surface felt to my finger, the tiny details my eyes caught, the country air and the gentle breeze.


So I brought out my favorite quilt-- made by my mother--and laid it in the grass. I lay there doing nothing. Just...being.


I studied the patterns on the quilt. I took in the expanse of the sky, feeling suddenly so wonderfully small. It's good to feel how much bigger the world is than you are. I watched the edge of the cloud cover. I liked the way the clouds kissed the sky, so softly. So gently. In my head, I stole the clouds from the sky, curling the edge of the cloud away and down onto me. Like the most secure blanket.


I like every moment of this hour. The way the light shifts and changes and beams down and through and around the world. It makes anything beautiful.


And beauty, it's another thing I like. I like the world to be beautiful, just as beautiful as it is through my lens.


As the sun came close to meeting the horizon, leaving the comfort of the clouds, the most spectacular light broke forth. It was almost, just almost...a miracle.

That was when I grabbed my camera, because...well, I'm a photographer. I couldn't ignore the urge. And I knew that I could never describe it quite as beautifully.

I didn't want to leave you all with just a picture though, because the moment was more than visual.


I wondered while I lay there if I was queer.

I wondered if perhaps I wouldn't mind being queer...Because being whimsical is so much more enchanting.


I couldn't help it, though. Those beautiful thoughts that come when you choose to turn off the thoughts which dominate. Those angry all-consuming thoughts of silly details, silly people, silly plans and problems...They crowd out the beautiful thoughts, if you let them.


I was fascinated with the changing color of the sky.

I found myself watching a plane far in the distance, as the sun was near setting. It drifted through the pink clouds and oh, how jealous I felt. I longed to be up there, just to see the colored clouds surround be in the sunset. To be right there, a part of all that golden light.




I went for my daily walk at 5 this morning. I found that Nature had layed down the carpet for me. No doubt as a tribute for this new promise I had done to myself to take better care of my physical condition. :o)


À 5h ce matin, j'ai réalisé que la nature avait déroulé le tapis orangé pour moi. Sans doute en hommage à ma nouvelle résolution de mieux m'occuper de ma condition physique. :o)

I haven't touch photoshop in two weeks , I'm still taking a brake ,

One of my first attempt at night photography in winter , I like it

but not when its -25 , I was laying on my back with the tripod

over my face , frozen to my moustache


This photo is not crop

I find, I usually do this when I'm dealing with the guys i hang with, especially after i count to ten. lol But on this day, I was also doing the same thing with the clouds as they were dancing and playing games with me and the mountains. Frustrating to shoot ....yet fascinating almost feels as if they were laughing at me in the shape of a smile. Brings me back to when i was a kid laying on my back, looking way UP, and imagining different cloud shapes in the sky. (mostly horses) .... To this day....I still cloud gaze..........sometimes you just have to grab the kid inside.......and dream.

Thank You to Master's Gallery for featuring this on Front Page as image of the month - June 2011


...a time and place for us.

Hold my hand and we're halfway there

Hold my hand and I'll take you there.... :))


To my dear friend Mikul. You will always be in my thoughts in every sunset...

a beat in my heart in each golden moment....

...and a dream that I live as we sit by the sea... :D))



I've taken this same shot with different lenses for the last two years. Today was the day. POW - here is the shot I was looking floor.


Confession. I laid straight on the ground and shot up. Just about the time I was standing up, the hired gun came out and chased me off. She said: "You can't take pictures."


Oh, but I did.

I must have gone to candy heaven.......


J.J. shared all his candies with me......go ahead....pick some too ....


Wishing all of you a sweet week !!!

I used a cheap macro filter and zoomed at 200mm. This technique had me laying on my belly, in wet grass, from about 2ft. It was the 4th attempt to get this cute little flower with any resemblance of focus so I was determined to make something work!!

Lesser emperor | German name: Kleine Königslibelle


Odonata - Aeshnidae - Anax - Anax parthenope | (Selys, 1839)


The female is ovipositing and the male holds on to her until she is finished doing that. As they fly around a lot during that to spread the eggs to many different places, he keeps holding her during the whole process to avoid other males mating with her, because the last one who does is the one who fertilizes the eggs - so he makes sure it's his offspring!

Hello to my dear Flickrites! I apologize for not being around lately. I have started work again and my time is getting all used up! However, I was on the way home from work the other day and I happened to look in the mirror and saw these strange shapes. I was already late for a meet with Penny and Kyeti but I told myself it would just be for a few minutes (it's a good thing that I am so gullible...) Anyway, this sky and the reflection are untouched by PS (really!).


I used my IR-converted camera and and added some color (well... OK... and I also got a bit wet laying in that water! :)) but that sky is just as it appeared. Pretty cool.


Now about that bit of color - I want to thank Katrin Ray for her lovely generosity in allowing me to use her image. Thank you, Katrin!


Cheers to you all. Your Pal. -Mark


21st December 2010.

Am I not terrible with the punny titles? But I like the punny titles, and i'm in pretty good spirits because despite the nasty ice which is still laying thick on our street, as you may be able to see, eldest daughter and I managed to get into town first thing this morning and do most of th rest of the xmas shopping, and what's left is bits and bobs that won't go amiss if missed :)

Youngest daughter stayed home and was still in bed by the time we returned just after noon....she is a lazy oik!

Off to deliver some cards now, got my cats(boots) on, they've got a better tread than I realised.

As I laid patiently hoping for any separation in the bunched up Scaups, I had this female gradually come my way. Maybe she liked that blazing shutter sound! She was enjoying every last bit of golden light as she floated in front of my lens. I had two hens that seemed to investigate what I was doing. Hopefully I'll get the drake next time for a close encounter as this one.

No des :">

As I was laying in the sand photographing one of the adult Piping Plovers a couple weeks ago, I couldn't help but notice a stunning glow to my left - the sun reflecting off the New York City skyline. I glanced back at the Plover, who seemed quite content hanging out in this particular spot on the beach, so I decided I would try to shift about 90 degrees and 30 feet, without startling it, and get a photo of it with the skyline as the backdrop. Surprisingly enough, it stayed in place and continued watching me. At first I tried a very narrow aperture at f/18 to get a deeper depth of field and a more defined city, however I didn't really like the results. Taking another shot wide open, I got this beautiful bokeh. The highest glowing orb just above the Plovers head is actually the new One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower). I've never actually seen the NYC skyline before in person (somehow), at least not that I remember...this was a great first look!

When I was a kid, I had this deal with my parents about staying clean through the night. When I wet the bed, a rainy cloud was drawn on to the list that hang on the kitchen cabinet door. When I was dry it was a sun. And when I had enough suns on my list, my parents would take me to the cinema! THE CINEMA!! For the first time in my life!

And so it happend that the first movie I saw in the cinema was: The Little Mermaid...or in Dutch "De kleine zeemeermin".

I was an instant fan of Ariel, and had a really big crush on prince Eric. When I was laying in my bed I pretended I was Ariel and that prince Eric would kiss me and asked me to marry him..

But above all, I WANTED HER HAIR!!

I have a huge preference for redheads, and I think Ariel (and Angelique) are the cause of that.

When I was 11 I bought red paint, without permission, but my mother without complaining painted my hair red + did a green eyeliner on. I was the happiest girl alive!! Too bad red isn't my color...I tried it several times, but it's just not matching my face.

But Yay for Ebay! And yay for beautiful wigs! And Yay for photoshop!!


I took this with a Canon Rebel t2i. This duckling was laying beside the canal waiting for mom and siblings to wake up. As soon as mom woke up and went in, this duckling was second to go! It was cool to see the clouds reflected on the still water. It gave the picture a dreamy quality to it.

These continents from overhead,

Look like tiny paper shapes,

Intricately set in place,

Below the misty mountain clouds,

There's a lovely silver bay,

Where sunset sailors often hide away

Sky Sailing


second photo of my simplicity of sailboats set

props to my mom and little brother for helping me do this! (:

those are my eleven year old brother's legs. he laid across to beds, endured tape, and played his ipodtouch while i was doing this, thanks kevin (:

and thanks to my mom for holding the sheet up while i was taping stuff and taking pictures hehe :D

this sheet is actually the hotel where we're staying in now's haha, i'm so cool.

i edited this with gimp and picnik, it may be a little TOO edited for my style, but tell me what you think. i don't do too much textography either, but i felt like this picture needed something (:

this is the first picture i actually kinda liked in a while.


i'm really glad i came up with this set because i have just about 10 more ideas, mwahaha! i though them all up while i was listening to the song sailboats by sky sailing (:


i have a question! i'm thinking about getting a Nikkor 50mm lense for my D90, but what's the difference between the Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D and the Nikkor 50mm F/1.4D?


follow me on tumblr! askk me

♫ Darling, mine

I would wait forever for those lips of wine

Build my world around you, darling, this love will shine girl

Watch it and see

If you give a little more then you're asking for, your love will turn the key


I, I just want to be your everything

Open up the heaven in your heart and let me be

The things you are to me and not some puppet on a string

Oh, if I stay here without you, darling, I will die

I want you laying in the love I have to bring

I'd do anything to be your everything ♫

It's silly o'clock and I slither out from under the bed clothes, lit only by the LED on the clock. Its cold, the heating hasn't fired up yet. I quickly put on my clothes, specially laid out for speed. I hurry downstairs (we don't live in a bungalow you know!!) Gathering up all my gear I have placed by the door, I call upstairs.... Byeeeee, see you later. I'm off to the car. I have to scrape the frost from the windscreen; I think this is a good sign. I set off into the darkness, looking over the hedge where ever I can for any sign of the mist. Suddenly I hit a pocket... my heart skips a beat... so, it's about!!!!!

I pull into the little gravel car park at the bottom of Martinsell Hill. By this time there is just a smidge of light in the sky, you can see outlines of trees and hedgerows shooting off into the darkness. Switching off the headlights, my eyes take a few seconds to adjust. I set off through the gate and now for the climb up the hill. I know there are cows in the field as every five or six footsteps it feels a little squelchy underfoot :o(.. It's OK, I have my walking boots on and spares in the car :o). I head up the hill, Pewsey Vale on my left and a small wood on my right. Sometimes there’s a Raven just beginning to croak good morning at me ( I love that sound ) but not this morning, but as always there’s a Tawny Owl telling me it's his wood, sometimes the female adds her support !! All of a sudden a cow stands up in front of me from its overnight sleeping place, I nearly wet myself. It's still too dark to clearly see, but I hate using a torch, it spoils the mood. I have a chuckle and press on. I round a corner on the hillside and cross a stone-age flint quarry, the only tell tale sign these days is when the sun finally rises and the light dances off the hillside, it looks like the surface of a giant golf ball. I wonder if thousands of years ago Stone Age people sat here knapping flint for arrow heads and watched the sun rise, as I will!! Must press on, the sun won’t wait, every minute there is more light. I reach my chosen spot, heart pounding, as much from the excitement of what could happen, as from the walk up the hill. Unpacking all the kit and setting it up all takes time, checking and re-checking the settings. By now the mist is really starting to form, lying in hollows and collecting around trees. A buzzard calls somewhere, I don’t even look up, I just love the fact it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. Within minutes the sun pops over the far side of the vale, and sprays its rays over the mist, clipping the tops of the trees.

It’s then that I know.... silly o’clock wasn’t so silly :o)


If you get this far, well done.... if not, sod ya..... lol ...


Need my rest..I'm digging a big hole in the yard! Yep right near the clothes line so very one can fall in it! I've positioned it perfectly for lots of action! Still a few days work left I think! So Goodnight & sweet dreams to all!

And I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me.


I was shooting this shot. a car stopped and thought something bad happened with me laying there. "Don't disturb me!" I said smiling.



i wanted to write about my life each week so that i can look back on this and remember the important, and probably mostly nonimportant, things that happen to me during 2013. i havent been doing that good of a job so i'm going to try harder.

all of my friends are getting ready to go back to school, or are already back, and i still have two more weeks of break. which is a very beautiful thing.


basically i've done a lot of nothing this past week, and then i laid out in the rain for an hour taking this today. i realized the side of my house is covered in ivy, and i've never taken any good pictures there. i'm happy with this and life is happy right now.


hope all is well flickrers <3

My favorite light for these laying down portraits is when the sun is all the way down or almost all the way down.

Difficult to see but I think this parasitic wasp was laying her eggs in an oak gall.

Waiting for someone to notice? I don't look to stand out - it just isn't me. I'd prefer to go along my way and as long as you're happy, what does it matter to stand out? After a VERY long week of working until 10-11pm every night, I took my team out to the pub and we had a few drinks. It was a great time and it was a great reminder that no matter how bad the job is, it's the people that matter.


Thanks to everyone who voiced their opinion for which photos to print! I changed the number of winners from 3 to 5 this time around but there will be more in the future. The winners have been picked and I have sent the pictures in for printing. Once I get them back, I will ship them your way. Look for an email in your inbox :)

There is evidence that a wooden bridge had existed at Kingston since the 13th century. The current bridge is 382 feet by 27 feet wide The building contract was undertaken by Mr. Herbert for £26,800 The first stone was laid by the Earl of Liverpool, November 7, 1825, and the bridge was opened by her royal highness the Duchess of Clarence, on July 17, 1828.


"I Didn't Want to Go, So I Went Back/You Were with Me"; Laying in the dry leaves, looking up at the setting sun in the wind whipped treetops overhead; Bethany, CT, USA; 11/2/14.

I took this shot after a very misty night where heavy dew had laid itself on this spiderweb. I used my 4x macro filter on my lense to get closer.

I did some sharperning and cropping in CS5 and changed the background colours to blue tone as the greyish morning mist in the background didn’t give it much colour.


Any feedback would be appreciated.

...seen at Dodge Park, Sterling Heights, Michigan.

My Dal Tinkerbell got a new wig!:) It is an MSD wig I had laying around, and it fits like a glove! *0*

I am happy I tried the MSD wigs on her. :3
