Awwwww :) :) Here is a Collab between the Wonderfully Tallented (and very beautiful VBS) TBO (Jen) and myself. :) :) She so loved the photo of mine called Summit, she wanted to do the collab. Who was I to disagree? :) :) Thanks Jen, you did such a beautiful job :) :) VBS I LOVE IT!!!!.

Here is what Jen says in Red Bubble about the Vector she added :) :)

My fav photo by for such a long time, was Honey Tracks, but more recently was overtaken by an absolutely gorgeous shot called Summit

Such a little complex world, almost alien, really captured something in me, more than usual with a photo from Craig. So I thought I would place a bit of myself in there, in a little world where the (TBO) Geishas live. If you’ve seen the movie, The Cell, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

The Geisha plays a Biwa ~ 琵琶. A Biwa is a Japanese short necked fretted lute, which is played with a

The Biwa is the chosen instrument of Benten (Benziaten), Goddess of music, eloquence, poetry, and education in Japanese Buddhism. (thanks wiki) I have illustrated Benten before, and plan to post my Goddesses again soon.

She is holding a plectrum used for the Biwa, which is known to up to 25+ cm wide. According to popular belief, this was due to its popularity among samurai – the plectrum having to double as a weapon, although its size and construction influences the sound of the instrument as the curved body is often struck percussively with the plectrum during play. (yay wiki again!)

Blogged Again :)

It's always interesting seeing where abouts my photography gets blogged and why. I was doing a bit of a search tonight and stumbled upon one of my photos blogged on the above site. :) :) What amazed me the most with this was the name of the blog *the dummy corporation blogging contemporary art in ohio and around the world*. And also the fact that they choose to use my Photo In Your House out of ALL the photos in Red Bubble!! WOW!! :) :) :)

What It's Like (Original)

This is the Original (off the camera) shot of "What It's Like" that I modded and posted on Red Bubble. You can see the Spider Webs much more clearer in this and can also see a cocoon like web in the background that I removed for the modded version. I was also going to remove the other insect that seems to be hanging onto the leaf, but left it there as it seemed to add a little depth to the overall photo. You can see the modded version of this here. :)

Isn't Love Beautiful :) :)

I have been meaning to start writing again, I have so many wonderful emotions flowing through my soul right now ... and every time I think I find some time to sit and express how I am feeling in words something comes up. I have also been a little under the weather of late ... but ....!!!!

It has been such a wonderful time, these last couple of months :) I am falling so hard and I love her so much!! She means the world to me and she makes me feel so happy and so loved!!

It doesn't really matter if I feel a little sick, or unmotivated. If I come home from work a little down ... as soon as I see you baby ... I am so high again!!! I can't believe how good it feels to have you in my life. You are the single most important thing to me sweetheart and I am falling deeper and deeper in Love with you every single day! :) You are the most beautiful Woman And I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you Darling :) :) I LOVE YOU!!!! I can't wait for all my dreams to become yours as well Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Wedgetail Eagle, Western Australia

Sunset Slideshow

Thank You so much to Jed for making this wonderful Slideshow of my work. You can view Jed's blog here. And can also download the Slideshow (with music) here :) :)

Valentine and other Lovely Things :)

Well, another year has past and Valentines day has been and gone once again :) This time last year was the loneliest Valentine's Day I have spent. But oh what a contrast this year was :) Finding love and now walking that walk again is such a beautiful feeling. Having something so beautiful to work towards and feeling love again in my life, makes waiting and hoping so much easier to do. :) :) Thank you darling :) I love you :) :)

I will try to get the next three sales items from the Bub up this weekend. I also want to work on a New Tee, will see how I go with that. I have so many ideas floating around in my head at the moment, I have no idea where to start. I should work on my latest Poem/song too. :) I feel the need ;)

Back to the Salt Lakes

Well I ventured out again last night in search of the perfect Sunset ;) I drove about 20km south of Kella and ended up in the middle of some saltlakes ... so, out of the car and crawling around on my belly again. :) I love getting macros of the little saltbushs .... it's really like an alien world out there when you get down and dirty, and I love some of the wonderful photos I get out of it. I uploaded one to Red Bubble tonight:

This photo is available as: CD, P, LP, MP, CP, FP.

Finding your way around ;)

Okay ... I think I am slowly starting to get the hang of this :) I have added links over in the side bar to other pages within this blog. Hopefully each of those pages has the links to come back here (Or navigate to the others as well). They are pretty easy to see, they are the same as the header Photo at the top of the page, only they have what that particular page is for, ie. T-shirts. :) Hopefully it's all pretty easy to follow and understand and you don't get lost ;) Let me know what you think :) :)

Hi All :) :)

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my new Blog :) This is the first time I have really ventured into doing a blog and I have a LOT of dreams and aspirations for this. :)

First off ... I would like to Gratefully Thank Jen (TBO) for all her help in getting me started in here. :) She spent a lot of her own time sorting me out and showing me how to do stuff. As a matter of fact I would say 99% of this is her work at the moment!! So Jen ... you are an Angel and I sincerely appreciate all your help :) {{{{{{hug}}}}}}

The main purpose of this blog is to have a central point for me to show off my photography and Poety/Lyrics and any other work I want to share with others. I will have links to items I have for sale, which can be bought through Red Bubble and I hopefully will be showing how I do a lot of the work I do on my photography. Also I think I will make this blog a place where you can come and get to know the artist a little better. My head is so full of ideas at the moment and I really don't know where to start, but I am slowly getting them out and down in this blog, so keep checking back and see how far I have come :)
