It’s time for a much lighter fun post today. These little characters caught my eye and I had to share them with you.
Bus and the Dog
The 2nd photo shows where I saw these. In a shopfront window. No not in the London but a local shop. Full of goodies.
I’m really pleased with the quality of my new camera. As mentioned previously it is a point and shoot Sony DSC WX7 16 MP Digital Camera. I carry it all the time and images like those above just jump out at me when I least expect it.
Here’s an image I captured one morning while walking. It is ……… No I won’t tell you what it is. Rather you are welcome to guess what you think it is.
I love random shots which force us to see things in a new way….from a different point of view. I believe anything which gets us out of our familiar, routine ruts and makes us think or feel to enrich our lives is good. I hope that an image such as this does that.
Let me know what you think.
Had to add this photo taken later today which shows the complete bubblegum dispensing machine. I love this photo as it is full of colour, shapes and fun. And the first reply was right. Thanks.
Here is an image I took with a new camera. A Sony DSCWX7 Cyber-shot Digital Camera. Bought a demo model for $150 at a local electrical store with 3 years unconditional warranty $175. I had been looking around and was impressed by several others including the new Sony DSC WX150 model. When this was offered at a very good price I grabbed it. Specs look impressive and it even has 3D though I don’t think I will ever need that. Compact cameras have come a long way in the last few years.
I took this photo to see how blurred a fast descending diver on TV would look. No attention to settings or any idea of what the camera needed for this shot. The flash did not go off and it was a quick hand held spontaneous photo.
My old camera would have shown the diver and surrounds as a complete blur. Now that can be good too but not if you want to capture the image. I think with a few settings adjustments and maybe a tripod to support the camera it would be brilliant.
I was amazed to find that Art was part of the Olympic Games in the past. Maybe one day it will return. Here is a little of what I found.
Currently the Olympic Games is all about the PHYSICAL. Could it also include the SPIRITUAL showing how important it is to develope the WHOLE person. I would really appreciate your vote in the poll at the bottom of the post.
“Art competitions formed part of the modern Olympic Games during its early years, from 1912 to 1952. The competitions were part of the original intention of the Olympic Movement’s founder, Pierre de Fredy,Baron de Coubertin. Medals were awarded for works of art inspired by sport, divided into five categories: architecture, literature, music, painting, and sculpture.
The juried art competitions were abandoned in 1954 because artists were considered to be professionals, while Olympic athletes were required to be amateurs” (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) …… (now that has changed today e.g. Tennis).
Since the initial discovery of The Magic Still Life in a Box reports are coming in that reveal the source of it’s amazing magic.
A lady in Toronto Canada reports that upon meditating on it a Higher Light revealed itself from the area of the lampshade at the top of the still life. She thought this was a sign from above. This was confirmed when with just one session of meditation a philanthropic neighbor agreed to pay off her mortgage and she is now debt free.
Horn of Plenty
Another young man in New York said that a virtual Horn of Plenty has opened up to him. His boss gave him a 100% increase in pay, he met the girl of his dreams and won the lottery …….. all in one day!!!!
A little girl in London UK says she sees a yellow heart every time she looks at the image and took this photo with her iPhone to prove it. More importantly her mother and father stopped fighting after many years and decided to go on a long family vacation together. This was a big dream of hers.
People all over the world are reporting various symbols which seem to to be attached to this image. Above are just three but many more are coming in. The first links the image to the great magical powers of the pyramids of Egypt. The second, the Number 63 is a little known but very powerful ancient healing number which is said to open the Door of Eternity and give ever lasting life. One of the most bizarre stories is that a map of Australia superimposed over it touches the mid points of all objects.
As you can see there seems to be mounting evidence to prove the magic in this image. I must admit I was a skeptic but it seems that this image really does have magical properties.
Regardless of what happens in the future it is already clear that magic is all around us and all we have to do is OPEN our eyes to find it every day. The world is truly an amazing place and ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
Deeply moved by the beginning of the 2012 Olympic Games in London I had to share something of how it effected me. Only on an occasion such as this do we come together to celebrate the best of being human regardless of race, color, gender or beliefs. The joy on their faces says it all.
With this photo collage I attempted to capture something which might remind us of this special moment in time but more importantly be timeless as well…..when people unite from all over the world to express JOY and have a common purpose!
