Declare to the universe that you are open to receiving all the abundance it's waiting patiently to hand out in many guises.
I today declare to the universe I want a sense of direction in the coming months ahead as I prepare for a big move interstate to be closer to my mother and friends.

What would you like to declare to the universe today?

The Point

The point of it all,
what is the point ?
is this,this is it; the point is to find purpose.
So be inspired! Be curious, be happy, and be silly.
Do something you love.
I'm inspired.....by other photographers on flickr.
To take pictures, read a book and smell the flowers.

Sea and mirrors by Ross Bleckner

Everyone hates Mondays so let’s learn about an artist to help ease the pain of Mondays.


Ross Bleckner is an American artist born in 1949 famous for his abstract images, luminous birds, flowers, and molecular subjects. His paintings delve into the darkness of life and the lightness of being. Mr. Bleckner explains that he uses his paintings to express "...his consistent themes: the transience of beauty, the fragility of life and the loss of love."
"Whether it’s anatomical, medical, illustrational, metaphoric,” he said, “I’m trying to figure out some plausible way that things work or don’t work, to look for some meaning through the language that I’ve chosen to speak.”
So much of my work is about building up and taking apart,” he explained, “about how the shapes form and uniform, how they dissolve and reassemble.”
I remember the first time I fell in love with Ross Bleckner's work, I was sitting on the floor in the art section of the state library. I found his book while I was looking for new artist to discover. I stumbled upon his book and fell in love with his painting GALAXY WITH BIRDS .I could not put the book down and I marveled in awe at the ethereal quality of his abstract images.

My Kodak Duaflex !

Here's some of my experiments with fake ttv.






My first ever ebay purchase, a kodak Duaflex from the UK,it should be here in a few weeks.The original versions were available from December 1947 - September 1950 in the US, and 1949-1955 in the UK. Finally I can take some real ttv photos instead of using a fakey.

Through the Viewfinder photography is defined as taking a picture of any subject through the viewfinder of any camera with another camera. The image captured through the ttv is not a clean sharp picture but instead highlight the dust, scratches and texture,giving it a black border.

Amazing kinetic Art.

Reminds me of how impermanent things really are.
The first one starts off a bit slow but then builds up to an amazing climax.
Please be patient.

Muffy the lost dog found !



I can't believe Muffy was found after 9 years of missing in action.
She was last seen in 2000 on the Gold Cost Qld but was found by the RSPCA early this month living in Melbourne.The terrier-cross was living in appalling conditions on a piece of cardboard malnourished and flea-ridden.The RSPCA took her away and were going to put her down but then discovered she had a microchip.Due to the microchip they were able to trace Muffy's family.

I love this story about Muffy and thank god her family are still around and so overjoyed to hear that Muffy was found.Muffy lived with a family 9 years ago and was dearly love my a 10 year old girl who is now 19.

Can you believe it ? Nine years later they find her 2000km away from home ...........The adventures of Muffy the wonder dog continues at home with her loving family.

I'm getting my dog microchip next week,if you are a pet owner you should do the same.It might save your pet's life.
