As you practice, you improve.
Not at everything, but at many things:
at enough things to make "practice"
a mantra worth practicing.
Moments are worth practicing: finding them, sensing them, feeling them,
seeing them, stealing them, holding them; for however long forever might be.
Conscious…and subconscious…and unconscious meet
in sweet union with each other.
Fleeting moments of life, in life, about life – with practice – may be “seen”
with the unconscious,
with the subconscious,
and become moments of the forever conscious.
“I saw that,” you may say.
“I felt that.”
“I heard that.”
“I sensed that.”
It was but a moment…that now feels frozen and eternal.
A moment you can almost reach out a touch.
With practice you can –
sometimes, if not enough of the time,
with attention and intention -
capture moments purposefully.
No, it's not quite capture on-demand,
but to capture a moment often enough,
to savor, in your own time,
these moments of life…sublime.

I have been doing a lot of traveling lately. Getting up early to begin my drive at sunrise and coming home at sunset. For some, the driving would seem tedious. I tend to see it differently, as I am getting to witness the most beautiful landscapes and light each day! This was a photo I took from the driver's side window last week with my little point and shoot camera on my way to work. It just goes to show that you don't need a fancy camera or a perfect vantage point to get an interesting photograph. So now I am off again at sunrise - will check your streams at sunset!

« Nous sommes nés seul, nous vivons seul et nous mourons seul. Il n’y a seulement qu’à travers nos amours et nos amitiés que nous nous donnons l’illusion, pour un moment, de ne pas être seul. »
« We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. »
I had my folks visit me and hence the inactivity in case I was not showing up on your streams for a few days :) I intend to catch up as and when I could and as much as I could. In case I am not able to be as frequent as I used to be, I can only keep trying :)
I remember going to the Tower Bridge back in 2010 when I first visited the UK for a few months and back then I was still coming to terms with night photography and really have not done much before that. I managed to get a few shots that were good but definitely not something I was happy with. As I had to take my folks to London for some sightseeing anyway, I figured giving it another try would not hurt...
So here I was after all these years re-living those moments with my mind awash with so many thoughts and fascinations about one of the most beautiful and iconic bridges in the world! My only gripe was that the fountain close to this place has become uncared for with so much trash thrown around. So instead I used the railings to create some perspective...

"Each moment is just what it is. It might be the only moment of our life; it might be the only strawberry we'll ever eat. We could get depressed about it, or we could finally appreciate it and delight in the preciousness of every single moment of our life."

Esta es de la semana pasada sigo currando en las fotos de Venecia pero aún me queda...
La he llamado momentos porque esta luz solo la pude ver durante unos escasos minutos y recuerdo que lo comentamos el amigo Ander y yo.
Es luz natural por un lado comienza la hora azul del amanecer y por el otro la contaminación lumínica de Ullibarri. La foto está tratada con curvas para contrastarla un poco más y una pequeña máscara de enfoque, no necesité más. Bueno si, ropa de abrigo :)
