An Exhibition!!!!

Thanks to :iconfenifire: for the motivation to actually write a new entry, I should really anyway but am easily distracted, for once with fair cause!

So, About to open a small but well filled exhibition at RHS Rosemoor, a mix of wildlife, flower and landscape pics with the odd ghost too! I'll be there most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Weekends apart from one week, if you would like to come to see me then I'd love to see you, just get in touch if you want to be sure I'll be there!

And when I am not in the exhibition (i.e. before Rosemoor opens and after 5pm) then I'll be out wandering the gardens, playing with my new toy, a 100mm macro lens, which so far has only been used for taking pictures of baby Tawny Owls....obviously!

Baby Tawny Owls? Yes! A neighbour found a baby one and brought it back home as she was afraid it would get attacked on the ground, but, baby Tawnies walk out of the nest and along a  branch before falling off onto the ground where they get fed until they can climb back up. So, if you find a baby Tawny Owl then leave it there or make sure it is up on a branch where it can climb further up....but, the baby we put back up, stayed on the branch until I went back to check on it, then while I waited the adult appeared and stayed at the nest for ages, before flying over me and perching really close, it hooted, and the baby, who had been asleep until then, called back before falling off it's perch and hanging from one leg before dropping to the ground....my camera, naturally, was out of reach at this point!

Also got some new art classes starting in the autumn which is exciting if a little nerve wracking....it'll be fine once they settle down!

And generally things have been busy with a workshop and a talk and just helping friends, but still it appears, a little space for a bit of depression, but trying to shake that off by getting things done and cleared...I don't have tie or the energy to deal with that particular empty black dog! (our two black dogs certainly, even if they do claim to be permanently empty...!)

And I think a new Journal skin is in order....much as I like the blue Morpho, it's a little dark to read....maybe something bright with foxes or cherry blossom or a dragon...any suggestions?! (Yes, I am on a slight Japanese slant and also foxes which I might now be close to getting a photo of, and dragons, well, trying to make one....sort of fits, right?!)

My mind is capable of genius, if only it could find a start and an end to the ideas it come up with, or rather a middle connecting the two.
I am what I am, which is often confused, usually friendly and frequently vague...which is like this ID...I am also forgetful as I had a great entry the other day...<sigh>
I'm also not sarcastic...much...be careful...I am generally laidback but am easy to annoy with careless comments or actions.
I do like gothic...esp wih long hair....Abby rules! :innocent:

Current Residence: Devon
Favourite genre of music: most stuff except Rap - preferably nothing depressing...!!
Favourite photographer: lots....
Favourite style of art: Fantasy, anime, photomanip, manga, anything elegant and richly coloured.
Operating System: Windows vista - new fast comp(getting slower...lol)!!!!!
MP3 player of choice: iPhone and a Zen player...ooo it works

Jolly nice to meet you! :handshake: How are you doing?

And what do you think about this quote? Your most recent reply to me reminded me of it just now -

'Søren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher, he said that we come to the world with sealed orders. And that is part of what I'm saying: we never know when something we say, a smile we give, we don’t know if that maybe is not one of the things that somebody else will carry around for the rest of their life.' - Liv Ullmann, from www.youtube.com/watch?feature=…

Thank you, sorry, have been recovering from wisdom tooth surgery and then catching up with work and events....still a little behind but I might regain my feet sometime soon!

That quote is so true, an action can seem so simple, so meaningless or even so careless, yet, to someone who is on the receiving end, intentionally or not, it can change their world. On one hand, it should make us think, to try to be nicer people - to make sure we try to do nicer things. On the other hand, we cannot know where a bad comment or experience might lead. But, personally, I'd rather try to be proactive in giving out good experiences, I am sure I create enough bad ones unintentionally to keep the balance, so I'll keep on trying to make the world a better place on the off chance that what I say might make the difference to someone. I know on one or two occaisions that support or advice has lead to what I feel are positive outcomes, or so the people involved say!

I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year, and that life is treating you well so far? :glomp:

How's your recovery going, my good man? :D Sorry for the late reply, I've been away... :paranoid:

Your interpretation of Ullmann's comment is beautiful, and says many good things about you. We don't know each other, but it's pretty clear that you're a thoroughly decent chap!

I did have a good Christmas and New Year, thank you! And you? :eager:
