A native elementary rural teacher gives a speech about the wonders of the natural forests of the country. Her payment, the recommendation to further promote the culture with the statement: “I am what you see, I am the forest, I am the land that sees you grow. Guard it.”
2012 Full of challenges. Let’s see what 2013 bringS!
Some photographs are really worth looking.
For the last 2 or 3 months I have learned that your life is the result of your thoughts… (give me the benefit of the doubt, ok?)
Many times our thoughts are just…confusing… Shapeless…unclear.. weak… but they are there.
As once I heard, when we exercise going back and forth to a thought, it becomes more defined and then we start to believe in it.
Just like this photograph that looks with odd shapes, lines and curves going up and down… with shades of gray..
Then, we believe in what we think. We can explain to our friends and loved ones, but that image looks blurred to others still , and that is quite simple, it is our thought shaped for us, and for us to understand and have a meaning…
it matters not that much if a vision shared is understood… or not.
What it matters is that our thoughts, our shapes, our beliefs are for us to care deeply for. We are the masters of our lives. One or two others may see what you see, but only you will feel it yours.
You create what you think. Think nicely and nice things will come your way.
I am trying to improve my flowers photography, and since I am not getting the desired result, I am starting, one more time, by getting closer. So I got close.
This is a “fashion” flower shop, as it’s sign says. (?) I was going to crop the photo, but didn’t look right, so I left it as it is. The thing is that this hause is a very old one, has tall walls and too much brick, and even though the windows are big and so the door, the wall is much taller and bigger.
At first I was going to give a long long explanation of withered roses and blooming ones. Then I thought about being alive among not so alive ones…Then I remembered Niel Diamon’s songs “Craclin’ Rosie” that is a bottle of wine, which by the way, has a story… but I will not bore you with that, today.
Colors? Mixed or single? It doesn’t matter! As TravelSupermarket.com has sent out a challenge to post a photograph representing each 5 colors: blue, green, yellow, red and white . I was told there is even a color judge! (literally ) and surprisingly, a prize…
Tnak you Wanderlust Gene for the invitation! (Hopefully it will go well, like our last double summer post!).
How to enter the competition? Go to TravelSuperMarket and pick up the basics!
It was tough deciding which photo to choose and just at the end I decided to go by hunch! So these photographs are the ones “I feel like” to be a nice representation of each one.
What I also learned? I can get decent shots when pressed! or is it when put under pressure?
Say it in White…. I first went to get the benches then when looking at the picture I had taken, I notice the white stands.. and looking farther I saw the white buildings and then.. the clouds? I had to add some contrast to it, so I planted a couple of palm trees and then waited… and waited… and waited until they poped up.
Say it in Red… I didn’t know if this photo was going to be for green or for red. At the end I thought that green, well, green is nice but I couldn’t find something to talk about green, so I chose red. Three musicians and singers warming up their voices and their instruments for a street performance.
I would like you to join me on this competition, come on! shake those cameras and do your thing! :)
Thank you and best of luck!
