It’s been wonderful to take a break, to step back and become tactile. I’m very much enjoying it.. and thought I would document bits and pieces of my experiments and discoveries in my new online journal, as well as in my ‘real’ journals.
It seems I’ve been going over this time and again in my head… not really wanting to let go.. but perhaps needing to let go of this phase, to move forward…
I’m not really sure what that means for me presently – BUT… you’ll definitely find me at Instagram … and I do have a website that is badly in need of attention… which I must attend to… and I can of course still be contacted through my Contact page here.
I have to say, the people I’ve met through this blog – You – virtually and in real life have been (and will continue to be) a great blessing to me.
It’s been a very fun 6 years writing this blog. Beginning as an online Fine Arts Journal in 2011 and then morphing into a Photography blog along the way.
The learning has been the best part.. and being inspired by YOU.
The challenges. Awesome.. and inspiring also.
The best part though – the people. YOU!
Now, it’s time for me to step back and I think get back to my art – not sure how long that will take, but I need to be tactile again and want to spend more time with my camera. I am a tactile person and presently life through circumstances isn’t allowing blogging and hands on creating… that’s where I want to and need to go.
As I said, I’m still around on Instagram and am looking forward to whatever is next. I will continue reading the blogs when possible and definitely see you on InstaG if you are there.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.. for being here for this part of my journey… this is farewell from this blog, but not goodbye from me 🙂
April has been such a different month for me, behind the scenes…
Where I made an effort to get outside after the heat, in March – April surprised us with an elderly family member having a pretty big health scare, so it’s been very much an inside kind of month. In the hospital. In the car. Inside. Mostly.
We are thankful though, that things are progressing well.
I grabbed moments within this month, to try and think outside the usual and once again to try and see what was in front of me… on any given day.
So… my Behind the Scenes this month is quite unusual, in that it’s a big mix… and most things I’ve photographed have been Still Life of some sort, with a few outside exceptions.
Here’s what I’ve seen this past month..
Anything was up for consideration… even an ‘Un-wanted still life’ series.. ha ha!
I’d love to know if you can guess what this is (above).. Maybe you’ll guess straight away!
…more experiments, play and creating with the little truck.. A fun little subject!!
Some actual Still Life images…
Shadows and highlights..
A view through a window of Sydney city in the distance.. a phone capture..
A day outside (see below).. A really beautiful contrasty Autumn day – again, captured with the phone.
..and a look at a beautiful rose.. at different stages..
Well that’s it from me for April’s Behind the Scenes… A brief and random overview, plus I’m linking up to Max’s Changing Seasons..
I do hope April has been a great month for you… it’s almost done… already!!
