Earth and its Fullness…

The Earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof. We are only partakers of the splendour that mother Earth offers us.

Earth, Date Palm Tree, Nature, Giving, Mother Earth, Fullness

 

When I look at this date palm tree with its budding baby dates waiting to ripen, to be plucked and eaten, it makes me think of The Earth.

It makes me think of beautiful giving Mother Earth, mother to all of us, full of her resources that we latch onto and enjoy like sucklings.

Sometimes we tap and suckle with amazing selfishness and greed to take and take from her, yet, she keeps giving from her fullness season after season.

Awesome Talents Abound – Echoes of my neighbourhood

To be an artist is to believe in life – Henry Moore

The just concluded World Art Exhibition in Dubai was sublime. My eyes fed on the creativity of talented artists from different parts of the world with such greed and pleasure that I went away sated and feeling fuller than one who had gorged on a 5-course meal continental buffet.

The huge display of artwork that ranged from the simple to magnificent pieces evoked all possible emotions that you can think of except anger. I tittered in laughter, I sighed, I gaped, I felt wistful, happy, melancholic, inspired…. Some pieces were simple to understand, some frightened you with their darkness, but the greatest feeling that I had was to take all of them home with me.

Unfortunately, at this present time, my heart is willing but my pocket is lean. The prices of some of these pieces could keep yours truly fed fat for a year. The wonderful thing about exhibitions is that for the token fee charged at the entrance you get to enjoy the lovely ambiance and window shop for free 😉

Here are some of the photos taken out of over 600 shots that need to be curated and enjoyed.

Take a peek. Lady Lee inspires me with her photos. I’ve got an idea for this weekend.

I would like to offer the free use of any of my photographs that interest you.

Should at any time you wish to use my images, please feel free to give me a nudge and I’ll email it to you free from any image credit attributions. 

Bougainvillea Bounty – Mundane Monday

Mundane Monday is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

Though these are the fallen ones, the cluster of bougainvillea still look pretty and can be pretty useful even as they are. They can be dried and used for a potpourri.

Asides from their ornamental qualities, the bougainvillea is known to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-tumor, anti-fertility properties, treating diabetes etc.

 

Vivid, Vibrant and Alive

Today, I offer you a splash of beautiful yellow blossoms captured during my morning walk.

Yellow, Blossoms, Flower, Nature

There’s simply something sweet about yellow that screams vibrant and alive to me always. I guess it’s the brightness of the colour.

Also knowing the certain positive associations to the yellow colour makes it even more attractive.

Yellow speaks of happiness, hope, sunshine, warmth, cheerfulness, draws attention, positivity, clarity, energy, enlightenment, optimism, freshness, loyalty, joy, intellect and so much more.

May you find lots of happiness in your day today.

This one of the lovely beats I enjoy listening to. Easy Like Sunday Morning by Lionel Ritchie.

A View From The Window

I am still trying to figure out what the quality of this photo is that just makes me absolutely love it.

I looked out of the window one evening and there they were; two ladies standing so close together, no other person or vehicles are in sight which is a rarity in this place. I quickly rushed to get my camera for some reason that I still struggle to identify. For one it speaks  ‘support’ to me.

What do you see when you look at this photo?
