Reptilian

I went for a little walk around Syndey Park the other day and it is the first time in all the times I’ve been there that I’ve seen any reptiles. These two delightful lizards were there.

The one on the left is a Bluetongue Lizard – you can’t see its tongue here but it is blue. I saw this one first sunning itself on the rocks that lead down from a kind of water overflow creek that at this end was dry. It put up with me a short while before hiding under the rocks.

This led me to think that following the dry creek instead of the footpath may lead to more opportunities, so I did. And it did. Further in amongst the bushes I saw the second lizard, a small dragon of which species I do not know, (anyone know?). I am famililar with them but have never known what they are called. This one, too, put up with me for a while, but when I was still there decided that under the rocks was the best place.

Actually, it isn’t the first time I’ve seen a reptile there, but they are the first wild ones. I once encountered Aphrodite there, a small python, being taken for a stroll by her owner. She was very curious.

New works – There in black and white

Felt in the mood to do some black and white and these are the first showings. They were previously taken and I just hadn’t done any work on them. They are all taken in the Sydney, save for the lamp which is at home.
The thing about black and white is…well for one, colours can be a distraction if they lack harmony so monochrome eliminates that issue and at the same time emphasises form, line, light much more effectively. I feel that they give a sense of a place altogether different from a colour photo, too. (Not knocking colour, of course, it’s just different.)

In a gentle mood – new works

Some new works in a gentle vein.

I don’t feel that I want to say much about these. I let their quietude speak for itself.

Building a broader view.

I thought that I would go with a theme here with the new works, at that should be pretty obvious if you look below. It seemed to be a good day for collecting such shots. Maybe the sun was at the right angle at this time of year but the reflections are clear and full of colour.

Featured Photo – Nuptials of Zen

Today’s featured photo: Nuptials of Zen, is by Jodi Abraxas.

It is just one of many wonderful and unique works by this talented artist and you can view her portfolio on RedBubble.

I am very happy to be featuring this work today, because I feel that it has an added dimension not often seen, however often attempted; that being the real introduction of a spiritual lesson into the work. All I can say is look at the work and keep the notion of motion in mind.

The Living World

The Living World is animistic in perspective, the belief that everything has a spirit and is alive, even “inanimate” objects.

The Living World

I feel this photo captures some of the sense of that. Stop and think: look around and imagine that everything is buzzing with life. Imagine this frequently and you will find yourself becoming more attuned to this living planet.

PS. this photo was taken at the old brickworks at Sydney Park in St Peters.
