I have learned all kinds of things from my many mistakes. The one thing I never learn is to stop making them.~ Joe Abercrombie


A photograph is a story and as an author it’s up to us how much we want to reveal. The light helps us to create the scene.

If you dig deeply, you will find that you are not a singular self but that there are many selves, many voices within you. The more conscious you are of those selves and the more you let them find expression through you, the more complete you will be. ~ Frederick Philip Lenz

Picking a couple of images from archives was not an easy task. Also, not picking an image for this post doesn’t mean I am rejecting it. I hope you like these images.

Prefer learning through observation than judging

Life is full of uncertainties.

Your’s and mine.

Clear picture is not always possible!


Start to observe and learn,

maximize time in own improvement.

minimize time in marking others.


Exactly after a week it was possible to visit the other half of the garden. Weather was fine but with lot of wind. I was happy to be able to try various shutter speeds. There were more wild flowers. We shall have more flowers by the end of June. I managed to a get a slice of yummy carrot cake before the cafe was closed. No photo though.
