nothing & the ocean


That is me, a month ago. Standing at the shore of Alcudia Bay. Such a good memory. To go with it, 2 ocean quotes for our troubled times:

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
― Mahatma Gandhi


“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”
– Mother Teresa

sky fridays


It’s friday. So I am going through the recent sky photos i took, for sky friday. and am glad for them. Here’s what I wrote about them, while mailing a friend:

“…the skies are amazing these days, and each time I think: Oh come on, not another sky picture. And then I look at the sky and think: but this is special. It’s today. Here. Now. This sky. This moment. So beautiful.”

The photo above is a sky collage, the single skies are online here:
sky diary / sky friday rituals.

sculpture walk inspiration


Exploring landscapes and experiencing art – both of those activities and the places they lead to (in mind and in real) are sources of inspiration for me.

Yesterday i did both simultaneously, while walking along the summer sculpture walk at the Alb plateau. It’s so good and so full of moments that i only visited the first half of sculptures, to keep the other ones for a second visit.

And 2 inspiration quotes:

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ― Maya Angelou

half and half sky


I still remember driving this island road, first in the sun, then in the shadow of those huge clouds, and then in rain. The photo is from Lanzarote island.

And a half quote:

“A mirror does not exist by itself. A mirror is a half. Half is done by the piece. The other half has to be done by the beholder. You need to be the half to see what you’re looking for, so the mirror can exist.”
– Cristiane Serruya

Inspired by sky friday, and by the current photo challenge: “This week, share an image that has two clear halves, literally or figuratively. You could focus on composition and take a photo with an explicit dividing line. Or take the theme in other directions.”
