Nature Is My Canvas
Have´nt been able to get out with my camera for about ten days or so, all i can offer is something of a few weeks back, that i never got around to posting. There must be a Billion images of thistles out there, so a new way to look at them is what´s required, if it´s not to fall into the “yawn, seen it, done,it, got the t-shirt” category. So to that end, let´s imagine the camera is the paintbrush dibbling and dabbling on a canvas.
I, like probably many people in the western world, turn on my computer first thing in the morning, whilst brewing a cup of tea-just to get the Masochistic bad or stressfull news first thing-you know the type of inbox hell: “i ordered something on you´re website 2 weeks ago, it still has´nt arrived. I need it in two days time as that´s my wife´s birthday-can you tell me where it is” or “where are my photographs, i´ve got to get them to to the printer´s by 5:00 o´clock tonite”. Some folks just let this sort of thing just waft over them, me on the other hand get Hiper-not good for me or anyone else in my uncomfort zone.
Possible solution: start the day right, yoga mats on the terrace chanting omms is definately not going to work for me, however a screensaver with a calming message probably would, so this will be my screen saver for awhile-and if it works, i´ll let you all know, if not, you´ll find me in a cave, up a mountain , getting some tuition from my Spirit Father and i won´t be back until i´m well and truly sorted-just kidding folks!
We´re all heading up to the beautiful town of Alcoy this weekend, hope to have some interesting stuff to post next week- if we´re lucky we´ll see some snow on the mountains! Oh, and by the way the thistle was taken with my Sigma 70-300mm, but you´ve probably guessed that by now, if you´ve been following this blog for any amount of time. I should buy a new lens, just to break up the monotony!
