Happy Easter To All.

Here I go again , more a Ms Moon than a Ms V and feeling better than  in weeks .
Was it the lunar photgraphy earlier in the week ? Is it due to the fact that it's Easter ?
Could the fact that as from Sunday we have an extra hour of daylight play a role ?
Or is it due to the thought of spring flowers as seen at the end of this clip ?
As like as not a combination plus it's a time to celebrate for many reasons ,Where ever you are I hope this Easter brings new life to your hopes and dreams .

Look To The Moon

Recently a visitor told me the importance of looking to the moon . Many of you know I do quite a lot of such for photographic reasons . Last night was of special importance and later this moon. Several photos were taken .Why have I chosen this ? For me, the moon photographed in isolation is diminished. It requires visual interaction with clouds , nature or buildings to enhance it's mystical beauty. Here we have such. The cold air,lighting and trees give the photograph an unusual appearance .It could amost pass as a painting .
The movable Christian celebration of Easter is worked out by the lunar cycle . Therefore let me use this to wish all a " VERY HAPPY EASTER "

Hot Coffee Outdoors A Cure All.

Some swear that eggs 'chopped up in a cup ' cure everything .Tasty, but not half as good  as sitting outdoors with a cup of coffee and being amidst the life around . Such outings are short but very sweet. These pictures were taken today. If you cant take anything to numb the pain , best answer is distract yourself .

My Berlin Riviera

As videos go this is not exciting, but it's a marker. If I can take my camera and use , no matter how bad the pain , things must be looking up .
The people I met were both fascinating and inspirational . My style has been cramped but
even with mini outings the flavour of life is there to be savoured.

A Thought For Every Day

A marvellous thought for today and everyday :-

"Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite  picture and , if possible, speak a few sensible words "
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe .

Goethe had a way with words and the above  are for me, a perfect daily prescription.
Who knows, once better I may share my poem for the day with you on a YouTube Vlog.
Sharing a little song may take longer, though once upon a time could churn out a nifty number. Almost every  day I do get to hear several lovely numbers .As for pictures. In my own way I've tried to share 'captured' images so will continue to find more .
As for a few sensible words .. promise to do my best.

Time On My Hands .

Last week I had a very bad accident. Just as  filming several events was scheduled .
Such is life and here I am in bed battered ( like a cod ) bruised a la a boxer and stitched up as well. The plus being, in this weather , home for the moment  is the best place. Forget the pain and enjoy time to investigate books and photographic updates .
Picasa have updated and today gave me time enough to investigate this and several other new features. The new sketch feature is quite effective with some of my Manchester shots . Judge for yourself from this collage .I make no secret of the fact that I love Manchester .
