As small as a buttonhole…

A tiny daisy

As I sat down on a bench in front of a lake bordered by trees, a plucked daisy
laying on the grass drew my attention and while the others went on having
their fun I picked it up & had mine experimenting for thirty whole
minutes the art of close-up photography. This flower as big as a buttonhole
pleasantly surprised me with its outcome ­čÖé
I have to explain that my camera is very basic so I’m always in awe at
how its limits can be stretched…

I had a hard time selecting, erased about five & a whole load on premises & ended with the grand collection
of seven I just could not part with but most importantly is which one do YOU like?

As a Jack in the box spring
Just popped out of a winter
Never begun not wanting to
Be forgotten fighting for
Its place in the kingdom
Of seasons…

Nostalgia to a world long gone…



This photo represents nostalgia
To a world long gone where things
Were mostly slower & simpler but
Nobody knew,
Nobody had a parallel to compare…
Now we do ­čÖé

I am taking off for two weeks
To come back with more…
Thanks for your understanding ­čÖé

Odyssey is finally finished!

Having restored the photos back in this blog I decided to take back the painting neglected (for a year+) to writing. I’m really happy to show off today the results of what I had started in 2012!! ( under post “Odyssey”) I’ll include photos from the 1st sketch onward.

This painting was based on a picture I saw & fell in love with…the clean lines, nuances of black, blue, white & the panoramic-like view.
I added my own interpretation, it’s one of a collection I started with Trek evolution, see…

In the future a few will be following in that Theme.

The four men represent us on our life journey (notice the lines on their back expressing laps of time) the 1st is bent & struggling under the weight of a big question mark the 2nd is slightly straighter with a smaller one in front of him, the 3rd is already much straighter with a tiny question at his feet & the fourth has none, stands straight, there’s light shining from the moon, no more questions…

All is flat peaceful & serene.

Baby poetry ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

Baby poetry

These photos are a first in my photography’s experience which I’m quite proud of! There’s nothing like the joys of being grandparents, one of them, appreciating every bit of the miracle of babyhood.
The innocence, spontaneity when they run into your arms, the strength to say no in all honesty and force when they measure no more than three apples ­čÖé
I am sure a lot of my followers understand what I’m talking about and I hope these photos have captured the emotion of the moments you’ve spent with them too!

Holding summer’s plan in abeyance



Taking a walk my eyes caught the sun
Lightly brushing the symmetrical
Beauty of this leaf having lived,
Holding summer’s plan in abeyance
Embracing coming winter to bestow
Lavishly its first coat of snow
Satiating its parchedness…

Pharrell Williams – Happy (Official Music Video)

On this beautiful day I want to send to all of you this happy song to bring sunshine to yours. It is one of my children’s favorite which has become mine to the point of wanting to wake up every morning to this cheerful note ­čÖé
I only thought of posting it when I found it on
and had a good 4.07 mn of joy!
My wish is it’ll do the same to you ­čÖé
