Instant Karma

golden buddha head and shoulders

“The world is so loud. Keep falling. I’ll find you.”


This mantra, hypnotic and beautiful is from Snowflake by Kate Bush. It’s repeated with glacial poise and it came to mind while taking these photographs. My travels around the WordPress Topics page have shown me some wonderful things, but also some shocking hate-filled blogs. From Cross people, as I call them – if you know what I mean? So I thought I’d post these pictures to restore a little karma. Happy New Year!

Black and white can add real drama and depth to a picture…

I just got a new app for my iPhone, and decided to experiment on my little Buddha. My kitchen work top served as a studio, with All Saints wrapping paper as a backdrop and a shaving mirror as an accent light reflector.

Deciding which filter to use can be really difficult when you like all of them. I love the washed out inky blacks in this one.

    Wonderful darling you just keep lifting the bar higher

    Who dose this remind you of ?

    Saffy: You’ve been getting dressed for three hours and you still look like a bloated citrus fruit.
    Edina: You are what you eat, remember?
    Saffy: Which makes you a very large vegetarian tart.

    • Thanks, Nelly! That’s either a quote from Absolutely Fabulous or it’s you and me getting ready to go out. I love the new Ab Fabs…

      ….”I do not smoke: I am a cigarette.”
