They say that if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

Other say that it’s not where you are but who you are with that really matters.

… not even close …

It’s who you are that actually counts and what you can achieve by being yourself … even if lost at some point in your life …

Blue Sky

I let my head fall back, gazed into the eternal blue sky and felt the peace and sweet blue gentleness.

At that moment, I recalled the words of the movie hero Pi Patel from ‘Life of Pi’, one of my favorite and oscar awarded movies …’Nature can put on a thrilling show. The stage is vast, the lighting is dramatic, the extras are innumerable, and the budget for special effects is absolutely unlimited. What I had before me was a spectacle of wind and water, an earthquake of the senses, that even Hollywood couldn’t orchestrate’.

‘Life of Pi’ is a story about faith and fate that leaves spectators questioning whether the meaning of life is something perceived or believed. Are you a person that prefers to believe in things that always make sense/things that can see? Or are you a person that prefers to believe in miracles/take things on faith? There are no right or wrong answers – just an opportunity for introspection.

Bird Silhouette

When many people think of bird photography, they think of tight cropped, detailed pictures of birds. Using silhouettes in photography can provide beautiful and artistic photos.

This photo is of a Great Horned owl at a mountain national park in Canada (can’t remember its name right now). The photo was taken at mid-day with the light of the sun coming from overhead and the clouds adding character to the sky.

Birds photos created using silhouette photography techniques can produce stunning silhouette images especially at sunrise or sunset.
