Final Stop

Okay I'm bored, bored of my own blog. Yes I said/wrote that, I'm restless, should be out there taking pictures, but it's too darn cold and not yet running on all cylinders. Should be editing images, but been whining(as Jide puts it) as to my lack of CS2.
 
In my study, listening to some Corinne Bailey Rae - "Young & Foolish", looking through my picture archive and struck by just the amount of landscape pictures, abstract pictures, artsy fartsy pictures and pictures that ARE NOT PORTRAITS  that I have. Yeah I know I swear by portraits, but sometimes I just take some crazy off the bat shots just for the hell of it.
 
So here I sit, on a Friday night, restless, bored at my own blog and think okay, "lets flip it around a little". Hell for all I know, it may actually last for only one night before I run back to what I love, Portraits,  but you know what, while it lasts "enjoy the ride" :)

FINAL STOP
 
There is nothing like a long rest at the end of a hard day's work. Why should a hard life's work be any different?
 
Shakespeare, the man of wise words, has written of our mortality and 'dusty death' as:
 
"We are such stuff
As dreams are made on and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep" (The Tempest)
 
If this life is a dream and death merely a sleep, why the tears?
 
It is the dream that counts, the life that we live, what we make of who we are and the life that we lead, how we make the most of the journey. If the journey is from the womb to the tomb, get off at every single stop, enjoy every single scenery, meet as many fellow passengers as you can...for it is a one-way journey and there is no knowing when it will end.
 
 
"The little masquerade that we call life
Sometimes overcast, sometimes bright
Wrapped up with sleep on either side
Is a mere journey from the womb
Of a woman with legs wide open
Straddling a gaping tomb."

Awwww....Sinem and her words are back....lovely.

Suby, now we're talking...you've put up something different...and it's not bad...but one little thing...it's a tad bit off centre was that intentional?
Suby & Sinem: Yep she is back smile Yes it was very intentional, wanted to catch part of the path way on the back right as the dark tones adds more to the picture.
Nice B&W. Keep your blog going, you paid for it! tongue
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for visiting, come again

Don't worry, blog boredom hits us all at some point, and changing direction for a while often helps. I like the somewhat sombre atmosphere in this one, dark, stark and heavy.
Suby & Sinem: smile Thanks, I think I need the change of direction for a little while. I'm glad you like the image, please pop in again.

hmmm, you need a good shot of spring. No worries, you'll snap out of it. Loving your work, and I'm never bored coming here.
Suby & Sinem: Glad you don't get bored coming here, my aim is always to entertain and make viewers smile, or cry or whatever emotions I hope to induce smile

It is my opinion that the camera you use and softeare you process with are just tools. The heart of photography is in our eyes, not in our tools. This is a simple yet evocative composition. I like it a lot!
Suby & Sinem: You speak the truth Bob, maybe I am just trying to keep up with the Joneses. I try not to do too much editing on my shots, but sometimes I just want to go crazy smile

B&W is a good choice for this subject. Well done!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, for the comments and please visit my humble blog again
Like the high key treatment, a nice use of thirds rule to.
Suby & Sinem: I actually ddi not do any croping on this one, was taught in photography class to try and get it right when taking the shot and thats what I hoped to do when I was taking this shot. Glad you like.
It's ok to get bored of the blog and taking pictures. I often take a brake and come back again. You have to remind your self that this is just a fun way to get the days to pass by smile
Suby & Sinem: Yep, been taking it easy all day, but still been doing things related to photography, this hobby is fast becoming a passion, my life. I LIKEY smile
Nice composition and great contrast. Very powerful shot.
Suby & Sinem: Awwww,you make me day matey, thanks for visiting, please do come again
The drab feeling really makes this photo feel sad. Great work.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, I am glad you like. You take some stonking picstures yourself

Nice cemetery image. So it looks more neat and deep with BW.

And I have something to add. ;-)

The stroke of death is as a lover's pinch,
Which hurts, and is desired. Dost thou lie still?
If thus thou vanishest, thou tell'st the world
It is not worth leave-taking...
