  • As above, then so below
    Not so true right now
    In height I find the solace
    That only a dream will allow
    I know I am not alone
    As I watch the clouds go by
    It’s so safe and serene up here
    In my imaginary city in the sky

    • Its so mesmerizing and calming

      • This was a spontaneous response to the news that over 1500 people died of Covid today – a daily record in the UK.
        I was thinking of places to escape the pandemic.

        • This world right now is so crazy and stressful. Sometimes we just need a break from life.

    • Very touching Jules. Covid #’s are horrible over here too 😞

      • I think everyone dreams of a time when Covid goes away forever, but the realist in me doubts it.

        • Im with you on that. I have one son who reads everything and he told me when this started that this was going to be like the flu….it will not go away. And sure enough……that is what is being reported.

    • I love that picture, looks magically lovely.

  • Something to think about.

    • I have not watched a Nostradamus video in so long. There was a time I could not get enough of him. I remember reading a few books about it so long ago. I think I was a teenager. It was kind of spooky back in the day.
      Amazing how accurate he was 🔮

      • I read a book in my teens by Erika Cheetham called “The Prophecies of Nostradamus.” The book contained all the quatrains which Nostradamus wrote. It was an interesting read which relied heavily upon interpretation more than anything else.

    A new moon, a new year
    My calling remains the same
    I stand upon a spinning rock
    My only claim to fame
    Fireworks have been subdued
    The streets are empty and still
    Our time here is so transient
    With so much space […]

    • BEAUTIFUL Jules ☺️
      HAPPY NEW YEAR to you 🥂
      Hope you had a wonderful safe celebration. Me….well I wanted to watch movies made in the 70’s for some odd reason. I sure know how to party 😉

    • Haha! No celebrations for me this year. However, I too have enjoyed watching “older” films and Disney animations. “Frozen” was my favourite over the festive season and a couple of Hercule Poirot films with Peter Ustinov. It would seem we both know how to party!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It goes up, it comes down. We all dance the dance of freedom but few count the tally.

    We do not always get what we want.

    • Ain’t that the truth.

    • That has a been a good thing in my life at times. Wow, what if I really got everything I ever wanted? With perspective on the past, I now know that some of the things I wanted were not good for me. We may not get what we want , but we surely look for what we need.

    • Thanks.

      It’s a pleasant distraction I enjoy doing.

    • My approach is the same across all the pictures I make. I begin with a premise – or scenario if you like. Once the picture is finished I imagine a short story to describe the captured moment. It might take a while but after an idea has formed, and I’m happy with it, I run with it.

    Strawberry and Pink
    A myriad of tones
    There’s more than you think.

    This is a picture of one of my brother’s cats taken by him on my camera! He asked if he could take a look at it so I passed it to him. As he was inspecting the camera one of his cats came in and sat centre stage […]

    • Actually, I tend to think your brother was lucky although If I managed to get the same effect, I would probably prefer to think it was my talent also. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ha! Considering how quick cats lick their lips and sneeze….I say your brother had a lucky day.

    • When it comes to photography my brother could be considered as a ‘heavy-weight.’ He has sold many of his photographs in the past so he could be viewed as a professional. But with all things in life sometimes luck plays a hand, and lady luck certainly smiled upon him on that day.

      • LUCKY him. I have been trying to convince my son to print his photos on large canvas/metal/acrylic pieces to sell because his photos are amazing. But he won’t. He says he just takes photos for himself …his hobby. I get my photos printed on large pieces to give as gifts. it’s fun for me and people absolutely love them. How I know is that I see them hanging in their homes. But he is like me when it comes to art. I keep my art for me…..or I gift a piece now and again…..but it isn’t something I would do for a living.

    • WHAT???? LOVE his voice.
      And love the whole look.
      I saw this young kid a few months ago….totally old rock n roll. He had wild hair….shirt open and hip huggers on.
      You know he had to be slim and beautiful to pull this look off.

    • Wow i was certainly around in the 1970’s but don’t think i ever heard of this group before. Nice voice.

      • Kevin Ayers: 1944 – 2013. Much underrated singer song writer. Co-founding member of the British pioneering psychedelic band Soft Machine in the mid 60’s. Kevin stayed for two albums then pursued a solo career after forming “Kevin Ayers and the Whole World.” His most profound and highly regarded seminal work – “Confessions of Dr Dream” – 1974, became an instant-timeless-classic upon its release. He was one of the nicest people in the business.

    • Thanks for the “introduction”. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am only about 50 years behind,
