A flash of green
Then darkness
A flash of blue
Then red

A moment in time
Short and sweet
A hairs breadth wide
Fleeting so quick

A jewel in the dark
When seen from afar
Blue, green and white
Unique in every way

Fragile and alone
it hangs by a thread
No one to help
If calamity strikes

Protect the Blue
Save the Green
It is our Home
We only have one

Lismore Ireland

Lismore in Ireland, there is a beautiful castle nearby. This was taken while we lived in Cork in 2010 and 2011. We had a lovely time, even though the weather was pretty horrible most of the time! This was on once of those rare, slightly sunny days. Usually the locals all melted into little puddles when the temperature got above 22 degrees Celsius.

Sleeping Kitten

Sleeping Kitten

 

Our Maddie Kat, when she was a baby.  Sleep can be a really good thing, look how happy she is!  I should really get more sleep, and stop staying up to all sorts of ungodly hours!  If you like cats, you can download this photo and set it as your wallpaper (1920×1080).  Just click the photo for the hi-res version first!

Random Flower

 

Just some random flower that grew in our garden a few years.  Some liberal spraying with some water to add some interest and you get the above.  I have some different viewpoints on this flower, but this one has never been shared before, so here it is.

Flat and uninspired
Dark and tired
Hard and painful
Steep and baneful

How to get motivated
How to overcome
Shout at yourself
Do it! Get it done!

Slowly, slowly
crawling forward
Slowly, slowly
Gaining ground

Energy is nowhere
Lifeless is life
Energy is nowhere
Pain and Strife

From whence will inspiration come
Empty inside
Who will fill me up?
A prayer to you is all I have.

Bee On Flower

Bee On Flower

I took this photo whilst on holiday last year in Cornwall. We visited the Eden Project, and saw some amazing displays of colour there. Capturing insects like in the above photo is tricky, as the little critters move around a lot. Getting your focus right is also a real pain in the rump! My recommendation is to be patient and setup on a tripod near flowers where there are a number of bees. Frame the image you imagine in your mind, set your focus and exposure settings and then wait! It might take some time, but as soon as the bee lands, take as many pictures as you can as they move around a lot. Once you get into editing find the one with the bee in a position that you like and discard the rest.

Lands End Flowers

Lands End Flowers

This is at Lands End in Cornwall. The flowers in August are absolutely stunning in this area. There are lots of photo opportunities here, but also a lot of tourists, so waiting for a “clean” shot took a while.
