i-heart-no-shoes-sunday

felt like doing something creative today




but couldn't find the tools to do it,
i was tired and read a book about a time travelling unicorn instead.....
fell asleep and woke in a far away land,
many years forwards, or perhaps it was many years backward?
ill try and do what i had set out to achieve today,
tomorrow..

MR NICK DRAKE...



I WAS LISTENING TO NICK DRAKE WHILE UPLOADING THE LAST POST,
AND COULDN'T HELP BUT THINK HOW AMAZING HE WAS....
HE ONLY HAD TWO ALBUMS AND NONE OF THEM SOLD MORE THEN 5,000 COPIES IN THEIR INITIAL RELEASE...
HE SUFFERED FROM DEPRESSION AND INSOMNIA THOUGH-OUT HIS LIFE...
AND ON THE 25TH OF NOVEMBER 1974, HE DIED OF AN OVERDOSE, FROM A PRESCRIBED ANTI DEPRESSANT. HE WAS 26 YEARS OLD...
ID LOVE IT IF HE WERE STILL AROUND TO MAKE MORE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!


'SO FORGET THIS CRUEL WORLD
WHERE I BELONG
I'LL JUST SIT AND WAIT
AND SING MY SONG
AND IF ONE DAY YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN THE CROWD
LEND A HAND AND LIFT ME
TO YOUR PLACE IN THE CLOUD.'
-CELLO SONG

my pretty rainbow maker.....

Artist  : Nick Drake

Song : Place To Be

When I was younger, younger than before I never saw the truth hanging from the door And now I`m older see it face to face And now I`m older gotta get up clean the place. And I was green, greener than the hill Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still Now I`m darker than the deepest sea Just hand me down, give me a place to be. And I was strong, strong in the sun I thought I`d see when day is done Now I`m weaker than the palest blue Oh, so weak in this need for you.

MAGICAL roll film.....


It never ceases to amaze my tiny (photographic knowledge) brain,
on how, exactly, roll film works..
(lets not even go into digital, oh gosh.. lets not!!)

ive had many in depth discussion's with very well informed people,
and the idea of light hitting a small piece of dark brown film and burn the image on it,
still does not make sense...

instead i care to favour,
the idea of magical things happening in the small contraption you hold in your hand...
point, shoot, and BAM!!!!
image!!!

maybe its the way we all cry "CHEESE",
that scares the small photo lab mice in the camera silly!
enough to makes them run and quickly paint/scratch/draw
what they see out of the clear looking hole...
im really not too sure....
and do not care to know too much more...

its fun,
and makes me giggle at the way you start to look at the world...
the way you look at your street,
you pets,
your friends....

no matter how poor the image,
its has captured exactly what i was trying to do at the time..
a moment
simple
