Monday Musings #10

Recently I purchased a Macro 1:1 lens and although I haven’t used it much, very quickly the need for skill and patience required to use one effectively became apparent to me.Up until now I have used a zoom (200mm) to get “closeups” which from memory is 1:4.5.The latter seemed to me much easier to use, life changes dramatically at 1:1, you see things you didnt before and then capturing them (animated) is another thing.Movement is accentuated exponentially.It reminds me of golf,but I have a passion for dragonflies not white balls so there is no question as to which one I will chase.

Trying to uncross my eyes one day I happened across a Bubblelite who works in a miniature world in a very different but way.. micro-origami.From paper as small as 3mm x 3mm Mui-Ling Teh makes objects ..amazing ..all I have to do is ..click ! From little truths come big answers … I admire her connection to a real life through this tiny world.

On the weekend I took a walk in a Rainforest to smell the spell.Celestine moments with each peaceful step.The fresh wafts of saturated lichens and moss ..combine with the decaying forest floor feeding wise old ancient trees stretching to the sky like a conduit for the diversity below.There is a South American culture (I cant remember exactly which) whose word for wisdom means ’to feel time" … then there is much wisdom to be felt in a rainforest. This image by Geoffrey Chang is for the eyes of the wise…feel it ?

“Not all those who wander ..are lost” I’ve always loved that part written by J.R.R. Tolkien and whilst this brilliant image by Andy Mueller had me thinking of its wonderful use of scale … Tolkein’s words floated through ..

Yin me Yang me … :)
