The magic Forest

Greetings dear blogging friends

I’ve had to slow down a bit on blogging lately- life is coming at me from all angles but it’s all good and I’m still  here and I am out walking!  I will catch up with you all. I’ve noticed in the year and a bit I’ve been here, how people have – or have developed, their own style and vision. I’ve seen how they see light, moods, shapes and colours, how they see the absence of light,  how lovingly they photograph their lives and their journeys, and how interestingly they tell their stories. 

Where else do we get to see the world without paying for the flight and where else can we arm chair travel into the visual landscapes and abstract realms?    Thank you all for being in my blogosphere and happy Sunday!

Walking before dusk through slanted gold is truly the hour of dreams

  2. I know what you mean, Cybele, about blogging. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to engage with all types of people from around the world. Not having travelled much in my life and unlikely to have the chance to do so now, I so value interacting with others via blogging. As I’ve said many times to you before, your photos are absolute magic and I love the way you weave words around them.

    1. thank you Katie and also so glad you understand about slowing down. It sometimes is hard to keep up in everything we are doing! I may try to keep to one or two challenges too.

    I hope this finds everything okay with you Cybele. Yes my sentiments exactly, its like touring the world from your armchair, engaging with people from all over. I look at my flags and stats page and marvel sometimes where someone is viewing from and where I go as well. Its a small but beautiful world we have in the microcosm of WordPress which allows us to travel anywhere we want without packing a bag. The other amazing thing as you stated is looking at the different ways we each express ourselves. I can always pick up a thing or two out of every post from others that may influence my work as time progresses. Well worded Cybele 🙂

    Ah .. how true it is that life wants its due leaving less time for the cyber-world … this seems rather a constant actually Cybele … Nice to see you and what absolutely fantastic photographs — love that first flower it’s a beauty and the drops of water on the second is breath taking! Hope you had a great Sunday … and that the new week will bless you with joy!

    You take us on such a lovely reflective walk here. All your photos are magical – the last one appeals to me the most though No. 1 is wonderful too. I like your thoughts on blogging and on how we photograph and reflect on our life experience. It is wonderful how the blogosphere helps us connect with people across the globe. I agree totally and echo your sentiments.
