Horses & sea… life’s canvas when words do not suffice

Horse art…

I have always been fascinated by three powerful forces of nature (among others but those are my favorite) horses, dolphins and the sea but as the second is inaccessible to me unless I go to these infamous shows, I content myself with the two which is why I have come up today with the best of my collection in the hope it’ll speak to you as much as it did to me when I picked up my lens.
It is what I do when trying to convey what words cannot, when they do not suffice…
But the ultimate in my eyes would be to immortalize the same moments with them galloping in the wild.
It is indeed a beautiful & soothing visualization exercise ­čśë

A important detail:
The photos were taken on the spur of a magical moment, there was no setting of scenery.

Which one do you elect as your favorite?

The bubble

The bubble

A little spark
From a holiday
Nearing
To its end
A bubble
To walk
On water
To pretend…

Stars on ripples…

Ripples glistering
Under the burning
Midday sun as fallen
Stars under a full
Moon, igniting and
Vanishing in the
Same gasp…

These photos took me a long time to capture. My camera is not a sophisticated one and it took me ages to get those stars shinning ­čÖé
Enjoy them!

I had forgotten a bag of potatoes in my balcony.
They were partying while beauty was in the making ­čÖé
Two months later these were the results.

Enjoy the scenery!

All that, much moreÔÇŽ or rotten potatoes
—————————————————-

Wearing the hats of an Ascot race
Tentacles stretching out in a plea
Clamoring the human race
For ostentation and allure,

Whichever way you look at me,
Flash your interpretation through
The lens of your soul.
See the bumps and cracks,

Flesh withering, rotting back to life,
Wrinkles and scratches,
Abandoned at a party in a pantryÔÇŽ
Forgotten to nature happening…

To the unfold of beauty in the making.
See it all in its synchronicity.
Love me for I am forever returning.
Expanding, growingÔÇŽ

A reflection in the firth of your desires.
See all that orÔÇŽ decay with no glory.
A smell to toss in an instinct of preservation
Applying the laws of order and cleanliness

Never questioning the
Possibilities of magic happening,
Foulness dissolving into beauty
Mold, as a compass to our mien (1)

Sprouts, extensions to barriers
Crevasses, detourÔÇŽ the scenic route
Catch even a glimpse of life on Mars
Or the gossiper thriving on some

Dripping, luscious, slippery news.
All that and much more, for every eye
Has a story, every mind a book.
Or, just take a glance and toss

Without a second thought,
The rotten potato.
______________

Mien (1)
