Sometimes we feel the weight of the world upon our shoulders

Little mole hills turn into huge boulders

We worry and stress about how we look, do we look old

Have I adorned myself with enough  trinkets and gold

We worry about what other people may think if we don’t conform

We put on a mask and begin to perform

We worry and stress about incidental strife

But there are some in this world…who really

do not have an easy life!

Bits and Pieces I found

I was trawling through my photos looking for a particular one. Couldn’t find, still haven’t found it but found these bits and pieces taken in USA  with my little digital camera.

Beautiful colours

sunsets I have captured in my travels, past and present.

softly softly as I go

The glow of the sun just makes my heart sing

Views of Turkey

Posted in Scenery, Strange and wonderful, Travel with tags on August 19, 2012 by randomrose

Turkey is one of my favourite places. These are a few photos I have played around with to try and give them the feelings I had when I was there. This area is Bergama, Western Turkey

Nature in many forms

Posted in Nature, Scenery, Strange and wonderful, Travel with tags , , , , , , , on July 14, 2012 by randomrose

Went to a lovely gallery ‘The Light Factory Gallery’ 21 Brougham Street, Eltham, Melbourne, Victoria . They have a lovely garden area with scuptures settling into their new surroundings. They have a tearoom with an open fire, a great place to get an ‘artistic fix’ and afternoon tea especially with friends.

These photos of toadstools, sculptures, tree forms etc. all seem to happily sit with each other, eyeing each other up and down. Not sure how the toadstools felt about their metal selves (steel railway pegs) but they seem to sit nicely in the scene. I am not sure what is happening though. When I uploaded these photos I had to edit them and they just don’t look as sharp as they are in my file???  maybe the weather??? Or should I say the old saying “A good workman never blames his tools”.

Cape Canaveral

Posted in Scenery, Strange and wonderful, Travel with tags , , , on July 11, 2012 by randomrose

Well, I was going to go all technical, worldly, and specific about my visit to Cape Canaveral. I was excited to visit but wasn’t prepared for my wonder and emotion. I am lucky enough and old enough to have experienced the ‘landing on the moon‘. I worked in an office at the time and the whole office, well, the whole world stopped, holding our breath with each second of the landing.

The whole tour around NASA was filled with my ooooo’s and aaaaahh’s at the technology, inventions and just the massive size of things, however, when I started resizing the photos to load here I saw a totally different perspective.  Colour, art form, textures, the intricate threading of wires and screws, nuts and bolts.

I hope you enjoy my eclectic journey of NASA.

Around my city…

The Shrine of Remembrance

The eternal flame at the Shrine

Greater Love Hath No Man - The stone inside the Shrine. At 11am on the 11th Day of the 11th month the light comes in from an opening in the roof and and shines straight down onto this remembrance stone.
