Smiles and Magic Moments

I’m starting to feel better after being a bit run-down this week and off work, but the quiet time has given me breathing space away from non stop work, tv, pc and phone. Call it serendipity, but I’ve got a good feeling about 2012. I’ve spent years see saw-ing work-life balance, and have used work (for which i’m passionate as I work at my dream company, doing my dream job) as an excuse for hiding from fulfilling my personal life. I don’t have any goals (e.g. marriage/kids), but I have a strong sense of right and wrong and desire to help and share, and have learned that real reward comes from doing what is right, and not doing something in expectation of reward. There’s a fine line, but if you soul-search, it’s easy for us to admit that we’re all perhaps a little too fond of hedonistic lifestyle? Whilst that’s fine for a while, it’s like eating the icing on the cake. Certainly there’s a sugar rush, but you don’t feel you’ve eaten anything substantial, true? I don’t for a moment suggest we give away all our wordly posessions and go off to a 3rd world country to teach kids (which /hats-off to those who do!), but even the smallest of gestures can start an avalanche – even a smile. Maybe it’s a sign of age, being sentimental or perhaps the opportunity to quietly reflect on life, but I just wanted to share the sentiment to anyone who may find this post, and give them a moment to reflect too that it’s not just you who may feel lost in life.

Smiling is infectious, You catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.  

I passed around the corner, And someone saw my grin.

When he smiled I realised I’d passed it on to him.  

I thought about that smile then I realized its worth,

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth.  

So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected

Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!

This butterfly marks a turning point in my life from several years ago. At a time when life had been challenging, the simple act of this beautiful butterfly landing on my shoulder one day at Cliveden near where I live, changed my life around. Maybe this was the fabled ‘Butterfly Effect’ in action! I was amazed that it came out so well, but wanted to /share in the hope that you all find your butterflies.

❤ & hugs to all! ^_^

In the desert

 "Where are the people?" resumed the little prince at last. "It’s a little lonely in the desert…"

"It is lonely when you’re among people, too," said the snake.

"One day," you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times!"

And a little later you added:

"You know–one loves the sunset, when one is so sad . . ."

"Were you so sad, then?" I asked, "on the day of the forty-four sunsets?"

But the little prince made no reply.

Wish You Were Here … The Movie!

 Trelawney’s Dream in the Movies!

Following my previous "Wish You Were Here" Blog, I managed to take things a step further and animate my dream, incorporating more detail.

It’s not often a dream stays around long enough to be captured, but I think i’ve finally managed to do it on this occasion (see below)!  

Here’s the Movie link (16Mb Animation) :

Here’s the full size image (1600×1200) :



Hope you like!

Wish You Were Here
– I see a circular island in the middle of the ocean, with lots of smaller islands at the centre, like an archipelago.

– It’s sunset, and im flying like an eagle across the bay where I see a Galleon (ship) on the other side near a cove.

– As come to rest the other side, there is an odd scene…

– Overlooking the Galleon on the hill is a dead tree, atop of which is a Magpie cleaning its beak.

– Next to the tree is a Grandfather clock, it’s shadow stretches down the hill over the Galleon.

– I notice that the Galleon is at full-sail, yet does not seem to be going anywhere.

– The island is deserted. It’s a pretty island, but it’s quite lonely looking too.

– I notice that the Galleon may not be able to leave the centre of the island – there is no way out.

– A verse from "The Walrus and The Carpenter" springs to my mind…

Wish You Were Here…

Funny thing the subconscious – it often drives what we do more than we might realise! The same goes for dreams.
I created a island (and archipelago if you will) and had created a fly-through sequence using wide-angle settings, to give it a dream-like quality.
Well my Dad who is an excellent photographer (and has won many awards), has taught me always to have a ‘point’ to a photograph, image or video sequence.
Whilst watcing Live8, I found myself subconsciously adding additional objects to the scene from my dream. I allowed myself to ‘go with the flow’, and rendered out this final image, from the end of the sequence.
I have no idea what the ‘point’ of this final image is, except that it felt important to express.
One of the many wonderful mysteries of the world!
