Unusual (hai) Verse (ku)~

In a paper frame
the maiden still, for all time
remnant of her self~

Good weekend Googlies!

One of my current obsessions is up-cycling found objects with beautiful Japanese papers. Each page is quite expensive so I've taken to photographing & layering them … totally hooked & can't wait to create a series working with the idea.

Spending less time online as things manifest in the physical world but still enjoy checking in on your lovely images, original songs, tech updates, goings on & works of art. Thank YOU all for keeping G+ an inspirational place to hang out 🙂

If you're in Sydney during the month of May feel free to stop by my exhibition in conjunction with the #headonphotofestival. More details

Sol Luna :: The Complete Series

However subtle and intangible the significance of a Solar or Lunar eclipse is on the human psyche (or the planet), it always seems to stir the imagination. Fun theme to work with over the past couple weeks -certainly no shortage of theories out there to investigate!

Hope you're all feeling a little lighter after the long weekend : )

Cheers from Oz!

Dame de la Lune de Sang~

For all beginnings, an ending comes
Energy in motion, every one
Eternal souls in a cosmic tide
Each day, a new wave we ride~

Lake Pend Oreille~

“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” ~Thoreau

On almost every trip back to the States I make a point of spending a little time visiting this corner of the world. Such a serene place to take in the fresh air and pause for the passing of the day.
