Ice Patterns – Camera Catches

Originally posted on Camera Catches - Photography:

The freezing snow and ice gave me inspiration to do something new. I took a small bowl of water, placed old rusty leaves under the  water then  froze both in the fridge. I later took out the bowl, poured a little warm water on the top of the ice (already formed), to allow the new ice to melt a little. Tiny bubbles and broken ice appeared, that in turn gave substance to the ice.  I then re=froze. This morning I took the “Ice” bowl outside, then using a Lumix LX7 camera, I took these photos. I have edited many to an abstract mode.  Eve

Those Miracle Words – Value Of Kindness

Originally posted on Children Of Light:


Recent research into brain functioning has actually confirmed that we are hard-wired for love and compassion. So it’s not all chasing about individual success – our communities and society flourish when people look out for each other.

When we’re kind to people we know it strengthens our connections with them and provides a source of support. Research shows that we may benefit from giving support more than those receiving it – and we’re also more likely get support in return when we need it. This may not be like-for-like support, or even from the same person, but being kind to others builds a wider support network which increases well-being all round.

Thich Nhat Hanh, “Enseignements sur l’amour”

“A Word, deed or a thought filing compassionate reports can mitigate the suffering of the other and bring him or her joy. A single word can bring comfort and confidence, remove doubt…

The Window Box In January – Camera Catches

The Window box in the Kitchen.

“A view of the garden.”  ~ The garden is beginning to bud beautifully. I’ve notice small pops of colour on the cherry tree and others too are just beginning to bud. Nature is stirring in the warm weather, helping to keep the grey days from being too dull.  My window box shows signs of crocus life. There are yellow petals just bursting forth from the long green stems. I picked several Noel Roses, to first photograph outside, (I use the window box) then to place in a vase. Here is the overall pics. Hope you enjoy, a brief glimpse of early spring.

Just a small piece of art-work with the same pics. hellebore – with textures added.
