Alphabet: L is for LOVE

This week, let the alphabet be your inspiration: find a string of letters. Try a multi-photo gallery to collect images of single characters. Find some beautiful typography, or look for letters hidden in natural forms. I’m excited to see your ABCs! Love begins with yourself & is infinite thereafter.  Once you find it, you can never lose it.  Always choose Love – It will guide you on your journey in life. Stay true to yourself, your soul & your heart – Love Unconditionally, Always! 🙂 Photo Location: Shoreditch, London E1 To participate in this week’s photo challenge click here                    

A Little Bit of Photography: B&W London

As you’ve probably noticed I’ve just started the A Little Bit of Photography series. You will be able to find all photo series under the Photography tab on my home page. There are many days when I can’t use words, or to be more precise the right words. It’s not a block per se, but more like an extreme challenge where I just try to force myself to pick the right words to compose simple sentences which flow freely in my head, but just don’t make sense when they come out. Knowing that I’m just gonna waste a few hours achieving what isn’t going to come out right, sometimes I turn to music and photography. Painting would also be another option as well, although I haven’t focused as much on that lately. But never mind all that, let’s get back to photography. Here are some more Black & White photos from different parts of London. I will have another B&W photo post coming up which will be more on objects, still life, signs etc. I hope you enjoy these and if you …

Why I removed myself from the NaBloPoMo Challenge

Hello Sunshine lovers! 🙂 I hope you are having an awesome weekend across the World wherever you may be. Last month I sort of wanted to get on the NaBloPoMo Challenge again but when the time actually came for NaBloPoMo to begin, I wasn’t as interested in it as I had been before, but I still went with it. At some point, I made a decision, to just stop. The truth is, life has thrown other challenges my way. I don’t usually like to talk about negative things, but I’ve been sick for the past 6 weeks & it’s been a crazy rollercoaster ride. My brain & body were filled with all sorts of meds which were supposed to make me feel better & they actually made me feel a lot worse. The meds that were supposed to cure my allergies gave me crazy allergic reactions. Crazy right? Today is actually Day 1 w/out meds & I’m finally starting to feel like myself again. Now I just gotta catch up on a lot of lost …

Why Creative People Sometimes Make No Sense – Matthew Schuler

Photo by Sophia Alexis Are you a Creative type? Do you ever feel misunderstood? If you said yes to both, then have a look at this article: Why Creative People Sometimes Make No Sense If this sounds familiar to you, then you are very well aware of how hard it is to explain to someone all your complexities, all the parts of you that make you, you. It’s impossible. Creative types get it, other don’t. So I have a solution for, print this out & hand it out to every new person you meet. You can begin with this: Hi, I am ______ & I come with a manual. I wish you best of luck my creative friend! You should also keep in mind that not everyone will get you or like you, and that’s ok. Those who stick around, will get to see the real beauty inside you. Those that don’t obviously don’t matter.

Miss Annie Rorick

Starting today, I have 4 great friends flying in to Cyprus for the next 4 months! How exciting is that?? When you travel & move around a lot, you make friends everywhere & I think that’s pretty cool. For me, if I have a good connection with someone & we click well, they will be my lifelong friend and I can say that I’m pretty lucky to have met some incredible people along the way. The only thing that’s different for Travellers is that you can’t just go meet up for coffee when you want to see them & catch up. We wait months, sometimes even years to collide again somewhere on this planet in an unknown location & then catch up, explore & get to know each other all over again. It’s an exciting life, because you keep meeting awesome people wherever you go 🙂 La Jolla, California – Summer 2011 Back to the VIP visitors now. First up is my great friend from Ohio, Miss Annie Rorick who is on her way over here & is …


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.” OK – The truth is I could have gone deeper with this one since Change is my middle name & I love to travel, but I picked this simple Before & After photo montage that takes place at the same location (Whitechapel Underground Station in London) during the same day, but both photos are taken at different times – In this case, before & after my work

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symbol

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.” This week, share a symbol with us, and tell us what it means to you. Recently I came across this very interesting question online: If you had to marry your partner where you first met – Where would you marry? The futuristic looking location above of Vauxhall, London, UK answers that very question as this is the location where I met someone very, very special 🙂 – To participate in this Week’s Photo Challenge head over here
