Each morning I wake to the happy chorus of the neighbourhood birds…..and each day it is a joy to experience. Something cool about listening to them start their business of the day that just makes me want to be up with them. Whether it is the flute like haunting call of the Pied Butcher bird, the repetitive machine gun trill of the Leewin’s Honey Eater or the crazy howlings of my resident green Catbirds….. or a combination of the whole orchestra….. mornings are music to my ears and make me feel that is is great to be alive!
My world through my camera …. while I practise mindfulness and being in the moment as often as I can, I am never the less inclined to record so much of what I see on a day to day basis. I find solace behind the lens, it brings me joy to create beautiful images and fulfilment to record something that just needs to be told. I fell as if my camera at times is just an extension of myself and it will find an image in what may be the tiniest little part of the day or the world around me . Living with depression for much of my life I have been able to use it as a tool to refocus ( pardon the pun)
