Fhoto journey....

OLD beauty

When I was child I was taught beauty was a colour, a bright colour, I learned beauty was good things, nice things, sunsets, towns with trees, pretty people, beaches with white sand. Sunny days, I didn’t know where beauty was, so as a child I was taught …

I learned beauty was a nice family with two parents, beauty was a clean street.
I was taught to see it by my teachers my friends, parents and media. The people on my journey they taught me,..
But to be fully present is to give to that which we are present in, the key to seeing beauty in the present is to look outside of where we have always seen beauty.

To be present only for that which catches our eye keep’s us on the surface of the painted canvas on which we live

Behind painted pictures are layers of stretched cotton and cardboard to which oils slowly seeps.
To be amazed only by what’s painted disregards the marvel of the painter his colour and canvas board...

Raging storms,

The power of the driving rain against your skin, feeling the force of an unseen wind. Watching the fierce ocean fighting the land for territory. the grey against white, creations emotions written across a sky
So much beauty.

But The Tone of the man on TV taught me that storms held no beauty...the words used were always negative, lock up, batten down. , Relentless, destructive.
The word beautiful was reserved for where he saw beauty…he taught me a rainy day was the enemy of the beautiful.

Mangroves swamps.

So much life, micro life! Holding back the ocean waves. Filtering our city destruction like a guard protecting its king,
Breathing life … a lifeblood for our ocean playground.
Would we pour concrete over white sand beache

Ghettos
Humanity alive, really alive.
Passion.. , Hate, Love sorrow, laughter, God. All in a moment.
Un-uniform streets and old building scream at you to feel....
The Trash in the streets helps you see the road in the darkness…

But I learned. Beauty was…

Uniform Tree lined streets and houses, green lawns and sprinklers….
Cuddly dogs and drawn curtains.
Streets so clean that in the darkness you cant define the road. Form the path.

fall into colour

Im standing on the edge..eyes raised to the sky and falling into grace ,like colours Ive never seen.
The blue blood from the royal mixed with the deep red of the common..the yellow of the bumble Bee and the green of a cematery.
Now I see it!! Grace is a colour, the colour of wind and maple tears.

Scotty's Pictures 057

In a bold move today bush declared war on hurricanes....
we are making the message clear now that the states will not just sit
anymore and be pushed around by these hurricanes.Its time to fight back!
"by declaring war on hurricanes the united states is dealing with this in some kind of offical capacity..
there is war on drugs , a war on terriosm , and I think it would be irresponsable to not declare a war on these freedom- hating hurricanes.

first stratergy
1..
taking the fight to the hurricanes..so we do not have to fight them at home.
2...
troop deployment via catapult directly into the storm system.

the soldiers will be catapulted into the clouds with various weapons such as knives and smalll arms,, witch will be used to slash and wound the clouds..and then small arms fire will keep them at bay..
A defiant George Bush steeped back on to the podium today and said.,
"Hurricanes,?bring em on"!!!
Anne rusinek..the mother of the first to be selected in the assult in the war onn hurricanes,,said today.
"I just dont see how firing my son
40,000 feet in to the sub stratosphere with a knife is goinig to hold these terrible storms..it makes me sad that my son may not come home..but i have to have faith in my president ..they are trying to do the right thing"

standing outside her trailer..
in a dfintant stance she stood back raised her fist in the air and yelled. #@#:: em all,,God bless America ..and nobody else"..

georges final word today was.
"I understand the critics .I really do. I think aboout them all the time ...every day!
but somthing has got to be done and it may require a sacrife from the american people..
"I promise this".
never again will they come without a fight..not on my watch they wont..
we just wont negotiate with rouge weather systems..we just wont.
