I look at the world around me and allow photography to become a record of my living. The process of deciding to take a photograph, what Henri Cartier-Bresson called the ‘decision moment’, the time in which the elements of movement are balanced, has become a continuing process.

As an artist I can modify perspectives before and after the moment. For Cartier-Bresson, “. . . photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give the event its proper expression.” By making use of today’s digital tools, the ‘decision moment’ becomes fluid, a ‘constant moment’.

I would not sacrifice a single living mesquite tree for
any book ever written. One square mile of living desert is
worth a hundred “great books” — and one brave deed
is worth a thousand.

The Flower And The Bee

A beautiful yellow flower 
Resting in the meadows 
Amongst the other flowers. 
A bright yellow daffodil 
At the crest of the hill 
Watching over the roses 
Spellbindingly stole, the eyes 
Of the buzzing bee. 
He liked what he saw 
In this little dainty flower, 
Who took her beauty from the land 
And was as radiant as the sun 
Having its yellow colors too. 
The happy little bee, 
Flying drunkenly to her; 
Started to ponder – 
‘She is a beautiful flower, 
Placed high upon the hill, 
All the other bees see her, 
Would she welcome me, 
To taste of her nectar? ’ 
Then he continued to fly, 
With other bees as passersby.. 
He landed on her petals 
And he danced on her sepals 
And he tasted of her nectar.

Capturing The Moment — The Bees Have It To The Pleasure Of The Flower   7 comments

SCVN Nature Walk July 2013No competition here!

SCVN Nature Walk July 2013What are all you guys doing here? — Images by kenne

And now you ask in your heart, 
“How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?” 
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower, 
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee. 
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, 
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love, 
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy. 

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees. 

Extract from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet

Sunset Trail HikeImage by kenne

“Like trains of cars on tracks of plush
I hear the level bee:
A jar across the flowers goes,
Their velvet masonry

Withstands until the sweet assault
Their chivalry consumes,
While he, victorious, tilts away
To vanquish other blooms.

His feet are shod with gauze,
His helmet is of gold;
His breast, a single onyx
With chrysoprase, inlaid.

His labor is a chant,
His idleness a tune;
Oh, for a bee’s experience
Of clovers and of noon!”

Nature, Poem 15: The Bee by Emily Dickinson

******

“The world is rude, silent, incomprehensible at first,
nature is incomprehensible at first,
Be not discouraged, keep on,
there are divine things well envelop’d,
I swear to you there are divine beings
more beauty than words can tell.”

— from Song of Myself  by Walt Whitman,

My Nose Garden

I have rowses and rowses of noses and noses
And why they all growses I really can’t guess.
No lilies or roses, just cold-catching noses,
And when they all blowses, it’s really a mess.

They runs and they glowses, these sneezity noses,
They drips and they flowses, they blooms and they dies.
But you can’t bring no noses to fine flower showses
And really expect them to give you a prize.

But each mornin’ I goeses to water with hoses
These rowses of noses that I cannot sell,
These red sniffly noses that cause all my woeses,
Why even the crowses complain that they smell.

Why noses, not roses? Well, nobody knowses.
Why do you supposes they growses this thick?
But since there’s no roses come gather some noses —
I guarantee each one’s a good nose to pick.

— Shel Silverstein
