Morning Sun

Sometimes I feel like I've been living much too long
And I've wasted too much time
I think I've lost the inner harmony that flows through me
And my body and mind

Like the shoreline that divides the sea and sand
I'm a surface ever changing
I get burdened by the things I just don't understand
And all the mountains left to climb

But then the morning sun comes shining through my window
And it's good to be alive
It's gonna be a golden day
Wings unfoldin' day
Green trees, blue sky

("Morning Sun", Carol King)

Let me take you down...

Strawberry Fields in Central Park, NYC, is a memorial to John Lennon. I've always wanted to visit the memorial - Lennon's words and music were always in the background during my chilidhood and I grew to admire and appreciate his talent.
The memorial is in the bit of Central Park outside of the Dakota Building where Lennon was shot and his widow, Yoko Ono, still lives (the building was also the setting for the famous film Rosmary's Baby).

I ate this

There is a saying in photography, “If you can shoot food, you can shoot anything”, well I certainly can't shoot just "anything" and I think food is perhaps one of those anythings I can't shoot (yet!). Lighting, has to be spot on with food, plus you have to take the perfect shot before it starts to melt, fall apart or is eaten (um ok that's what happened with the cupcake). Keep trying...

Highest ranking in Flickr's Explore yet!!!

Just like a woman

[Inspired by probably my favorite song of all time]
Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev'rybody knows
That Baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman,
She makes love just like a woman,
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.
(Bob Dylan)


Bounced back in... Explore at no.58.

I think that I'm getting the hang of this Explore thing...don't add your photo to too many groups (5/6 max), adding a photo to scoring groups will actually decrease it's interestingness but you still need to get maximum coverage, so swopping groups is good. Plus you need favorites-comments-views, in that order. It's a tricky game!

That's different!
