Theater of life~

Life in the street is a theater happening all the time, constantly changing and metamorphosing that I feel compelled to be out there capturing as many moments as I can. Every image I capture makes me think that had a slept longer it would never have been captured. I imagine this must be every street photographer’s dilemma.

Early morning in Paris.

The magic of shadows~

When you do a lot of street photography you find yourself constantly chasing shadows, becoming an expert on light, time of day, season and brightness analysis until sometimes you just gasp and jump in the middle of a conversation because you saw a shadow worth capturing. Sometimes it even borders on stalking 😊.

When magic meets us

magic likes to meet us when we walk alone

Does it ever happen to you that something so special joins you when you are alone; a spark of revelation; a moment of clarity; something that makes you want to jump up and down in glee, and you might even do just that? I find that when that happens, it mostly does when I walk alone. Maybe when we walk alone we invite into us what wants to give us clarity, and maybe at other times, we are too busy and crowded to hear it. As long as I can be with inspiration, boredom will never meet me, they seem to live in different essence realms.

Moving into a new world

behind all the fog

behind all the fog~ paris

I dream of a world were we can walk together looking forward with a sense of mission and not at each other with suspicion

I dream of a time when we see with a clear vision and not be hindered by wars, disputes and division

I dream of seeing the day when the fog finally disperses and humans can champion the onset of future forces

Collecting essences

collecting essences

collecting essences

There were times when most people were born, raised, lived out their whole lives in a single place. The stories of lands far away were but fantasies and fairy tales. Not today. Our children travel and experience so much in their young days than was possible in a whole lifetime even a 100 years ago. They collect the essences that live in different lands, they take them into themselves and blend them with their own consciousness, making them future world citizens and connecting them into a web of connection that envelopes the planet making it friendlier and more integrated. I do pray that this is what will make this world a better place once they carry the torch of humanity into the future.

Planetary life

Planetary life

Every once in a while I get this great longing to “zoom out”. It is a process I go through when things threaten to get heavy or dull. When I feel that life seems ordinary, loud alarm bells ring inside my mind, because in fact, nothing in this world is ordinary. Life is awesome and full of awe inspiring miracles, from the moment we arrive to this planet with an erased memory and a vague sense of mission, to the nuclear spurts of growth we go through from embryos to adults, to the very simple yet unbelievable fact that we live on a ball that is spinning in a great unknown space and hurling through it at an impossible speed. So nothing is ordinary and it is sinful to treat it as such. How can anyone be bored knowing this??!!
