asa 200 fuji Minolta Old skewl w/400mm lens

These shots in this post are of a couple teaching their kids tricks an having fun on our local river here…….

🙂

Having a Camera whenevr i go wherever i go has been a natural thing for most of my life, even in childhood, sumday ill have to pull out some shots i took with 35mm as a child and ya would trip out. Even underwater shots my dad let me take with his ol’ petri and plexiglass housing him and his friend built in the day in the sixties….So anyh ow, whenevr i go out round no matterz where i live i seem to find things i want to take photographs of…

Image

Dad watching over wife and kids as they play on the waves! ya can stay stationary on them if ur gewd!

I am truly amazed at how many natural photographers there are out there and here at werdpress even now is amazing..in the old days , it was more of the photographer that made the pic, now the new days with digital compouyter tech etc etc,,well, anyone can take shots now like nevr before , ya got to hand it to teck,, but somehow take s some of the glory out of it for the idea of making positives out of negatives lol.going out the window now thats fer sure,,,but theres a time an place fer everything and my sony has a120xOptical zoom on it,,,

although i used a 35mm minolta old skewl non digital non automatic cam here

 &  impressin’ the hell out of this photographer 🙂

Image

Kids having a blast – wearing safety gear so he don’t loose his gear er oar if he flips over.

Sister glides on by!

Image

an like shot above i like to try to take it at as slow as a speed as possible to get wave action etc etc,,but on sunny days it is harder to do…with lower asa films, if ur shooting for clarity….

Anyhow,  i still like pulling out the ol 400 mm minolta zoom and the shots i get with it…with fuji film as above  caught on my last roll here…although i didn’t take that big ol cam into concert i did get some gewd shots with sony i am having digitally processed…anyhow enuff of dissertation frum mike…Jest wanted to tell des an all that read me and the ones i know that gots digital multi megapixel cams,,well..35mm is still yes , still around guys LoL

Queensrÿche: Anybody Listening?

Quarked Anatomy ? whats dat?

well,,,,,life is ,,,More than a phone call away!…

Above shot of Charlie was taken with 35mm black and white film at normal speeds normal lighting,

an umbrella to take care of shadows…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AND AS SO IS IN THE END LIFE IS!!!!!!!!!!!


Nothing but the same string being played at different speeds:
But da’ proverbial question is:?

~~~~~~~
Where does the light go when we flip the power switch to the off position?
~
Where does the sound go when it reaches the end of the string plucked…..
~~~~~~~
Sumtimez…It seems amazing how the West takes everything apart rather than looking at the whole and its harmony.
~~~~~~~~~~
Long ago there was a dream~!!!!!!!!!!
““““““““““
Fools die for nothing. Love dies for everything.
Fools ask, ” tell us how our end will be  “?
Love answers,,, “Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end?
For where the beginning is, there will the end be.
Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning;
he will know the end and will not experience death.”
The fool sneers.
Love smiles and cries,,,,,,,,,,
knowing the truth affected by all the lies lies lies……..
maybe jest as well,,,
not much i can do
but ..
is there anybody listening????
???????

really Now? is there?

Queensrÿche: Anybody Listening?

Lyrics an song by By Geoff Tate

~~~~~~

You and I
Long to live like wind upon the water
If we close our eyes
We’ll maybe realize
There’s more to life than what we have known
~~~
And I can’t believe I’ve spent so long
Living lies I knew were wrong inside
I’ve just begun to see the light
~~~
Long ago, there was a dream
Had to make a choice or two
Leaving all I loved behind
For what nobody knew
~~~
Stepped out on the stage
A life under lights and judging eyes
Now the applause has died and I can dream again…
~~~
Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what’s going on?
~~~
Read between the lines
Criticize the words they’re selling
Think for yourself and feel the walls
Become sand beneath your feet
~~~
Feel the breeze?
Time’s so near
You can almost taste the freedom
~~~
There’s a
Warm wind from the south
Hoist the sail
And we’ll be gone
By morning, this will all seem like a dream
~~~
And if I don’t return
To sing the song, maybe just as well
I’ve seen the news
And there’s not much I can do… alone
~~~
Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone who smiles without a mask?
~~~
What’s behind the words
Images they know will please us?
I’ll take what’s real
Bring up the lights
~~~
Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what’s going on?
~~~
Read between the lines
Criticize the words they’re selling
Think for yourself and feel the walls
Become sand
Beneath your feet

On Cleansing the Soul! an keepin a kleen mind!

**********************
Keep in Mind! Whilst one is in da’ Healing Mode of life emotional cleansing can take a toll on us and make us feel a bit overwhelmed an run down,

but “this too shall pass”.


Many a time we need to cleanse and detoxify our bodies and minds…especially if one is going through an ascension process of some kind. a lot of the times we as humans at that juncture experience flu like symptoms, remember it is only a symptom and the aches an pains in the body are really releases of the toxic werld inside, caused by ones mind and environment. Much of the fatigue and overwhelming sadness that exuberates from ones brain an mind, makes us feel as if we are coming down with something, don’t werry or let it get ya down more , is only natural part of the healing process! It is part of our own personal calling , every one his or hers own that calls this to us and this is commonly a natural but sometimes heart rendering part of the process that commonly accompanies Deep Inner Soul Werk. As we do this calling upon ouselves it is a challenge to the body as we examine our emotions and beliefs at many a time it is. It often prompts us to certain inner changes as well as external shifts in our very own personal REALITY…We often grow tired an one fatigues when the hippocampus in our brain becomes overwhelmed and has to release:) the best cure for this is a good cleansing meditation or nap:)
Feeling under the weather or wind as it is tonight or the storms so often that come and go well?, it is at this time that our universe is telling us it is time to take a break…Let the sun shine in a bit and jest relax and take in the goodness as it is given…Best to allow instead of push in these instances also, go with the flow so to say….take a break.relax and be kind to the brain from the kind side of the mind. Learning how to listen and honor our bodies is jest part of the grand consciousness in each of us in becoming conscious itself, while on this spiritual journey called life.
So, point of all this is when one is feeling like this and thingz are not well, make an effort to gain more sleep, somehow some way, release the hippocampus in the brain{the hard drive} it can’t hold that much info and the more active one is the faster it gets filled thus requiring more sleep:)
Other ways to support ur mental health and ur bodies physical health also are to be eating as healthy as possible, drink plenty of clean non chlorinated % or Non-flourided water!, do herbal teas, take vitamins, eat all the colors of the rainbow that the body can handle of “LIVE” foods…the most nutritious{although the q don’t like many of em}..take vitamin C and get D it is both good for the immune system in human beings. Lotsa different homeopathic remedies can also sumtimez aid and assist in the body’s need for recovery when overwhelmed by emotional pr physical states or both…….its all in the MIND NOW I RE-MIND U!
Going for long walks in the wilderness or the desert away from any noise or people also helps!
Talking in a loving manner from ur mind to urself is also healthy in recovery jest as its healthy to talk to ur animalz or ur plants believe it er not, they do somewhat understand more than ud ever believe….
Most of all things though Forgiveness…or letting things go is most of all important!, resentments are sure killers in this werld of thought and mind which in turn comes out through emotions and the body!…
Letting these thingz go through various forms of meditation or music no lyrically in tune; or meditating on the magenta or azure blue inside of u…these things help in the speed and recovery frum a damaged mind and body!…

In Addendum; One if they believe so ; can always call upon themselves their guides and angels or their higher power to assist in easing the “symptoms” of what is causing the un easy feelinz.
It is all natural to go through these times of “being under the weather ” so to speak but there is no reason to get ur feathers all ruffled if its not to windy in the mind,,,be kind to urself. Let go of ur woories and don’t let ur past steal ur future, life is too short for that!…remember as they say in the 12 step programs; “this too shall pass”…and get on with gettin’ on and keep on keeping on ,,with “IT” whatevr “IT” might be in ur life……..Stay inspired an be well by thinking good thoughts and forgiving all the bad:) and others fear based stuff they lay upon ya also…….

Hopefully the tips above if put in use might assist ya along the healing process of forgiveness and releasing all the Karma {both taken an given} frum one soul to another. quark here don’t know it all bout all the whys an hows but puttin it into werds here an re-readin what i think is imporrtant to me, an to practice what i preach an believe….
Other than that i can’t think of much more at present so …till next time ……….kind thoughts to one an all, even those whom betray against honest souls!…..Live Long an Prosper ; in all wayz! as ya travel down the path of karmas delight this night er day whatever it be 2 u:) any way make the best of it one can at any moment and hour during the day , make the next best decision and let the woories go and the pains go and the higher order of thingz will do the rest..try it fer a day….Hope it werks for u as gewd as it do me, jest takes a bit of time an practice, sometimes yearz, but what the hay,,that’s what Patience an Love is all bout right!..i do so think so……..

think before ye act,think before ye speak,think before u do !

act intelligent an or fake it till ya make it

u’ll get it right sumday…

Think, dip frum da chalace’….then think bout it again!

Q say Da’  Mirror Never Lies

🙂
This is an awesome song. We all know who the stranger is, This song takes me back to days when i have lost fellow participants in this life.. You become a stranger to yourself and i think its the only thing that can take you to the brink of Insanity. You lose yourself, because a part of who you are has been ripped away. Somehow we find our way back, but we are never who we once were. An amazing an prolific song, and I hope people get enjoyment out of it as I have. PeAcE!
To u frum Da Quarked one today!

All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what we had and what we knew
Everytime I try to leave it behind me
I see something that reminds me of you
Every night the dreams return to haunt me
Your rosary wrapped around your throat
I lie awake and sweat, afraid to fall asleep
I see your face looking back at me
~~~~
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare
~~~~
Is this all that’s left
Of my life before me
Straight jacket memories, sedative highs
No happy ending like they’ve always promised
There’s got to be something left for me
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare [lies behind my stare]
~~~~
How many times must I live this tragedy
How many more lies will they tell me
All I want is the same as everyone
Why am I here, and for how long
~~~~
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare
