Philosophical Fridays – Rediscovering Simplicity

“This is a way of saying that our deepest spiritual, religious, and psychological problems are extremely simple.
Just go out and look at the sky.
Get to know where you are.
Heaven is there for all to see.”
~ Alan W. Watts

Glass, Squared – By Day & By Night Through the Window

By Day – It’s amazing how many times I have taken a shot through a window, knowing full well the quality of the shot could be pretty poor. But sometimes, that really doesn’t matter. It is a moment in life that just deserves more presence of attention and merits the joy of preserving it for a future date.

In the case of this song thrush, I had been listening to it singing away but couldn’t actually see where it was perched. As I passed the window, there it sat, bold as brass on the grass nonchalantly preening itself in the sunlight. I prayed it would still be there by the time I’d wrestled my camera out of its bag and it was and continued to bathe unperturbed much longer than I was prepared to stand stooped over the camera.

By Night – Drawn to the magnificent sky as I passed the window, I simply had to snap it. I loved the way the dark slanted window framed it all.

On the Way – Loch Lomond Lady

This image was captured on a long journey south from the Highlands of Scotland down to England. It was a long day as there were so many excellent moments for stopping and taking yet another photograph.

But this one I have cherished ever since. Whilst driving alongside Loch Lomond, the sun going down, I saw her, lying down in the water, the moon behind her, or, are they the edges of wings? She had a golden shawl adorned with a bow and still to this day I do not know if she is looking at me or looking away.

It was truly a magical moment.
