Photos I have been working on lately

Calling this one "Mustache Rock"
Face to Face-- I can see several faces in the bank of this wash
This one is called "Spring Thaw" a depiction of tiny flowers floating in a partially thawed frozen lake.

And that's pretty much it, I haven't been shooting much lately. Concentrating more on photo manipulation.

Sunflower bridge

Shot this photo of a sunflower in front if a bridge at Lakeside several months back. We need to get up to the lake more often. Who doesn't like wild sunflowers?

Bees, Miracles and Science

Sold a version of this print to Elizabeth in London, today. Always nice to wake up to that. That's a detail view at the top. Different versions get different treatments, it's hard for me to leave a file alone, therefore the print which ships to England isn't exactly what you see here, and next time it will probably be different again. I like pictures of insects and other wildlife because it's like going into another world. I think as far as the creature is concerned he's in his own little world and nothing outside of that matters. It does matter of course. We're all connected and we're all in this dance with our environmental factors all the time-- we affect the environment, the environment affects us, all the time. We're never completely outside of each others influence. Change one thing, everything else changes-- or it should.

Somebody just brought my attention to this quote from Abraham Hicks - "Stop 
looking for anything other than your mental and emotional state of 
being as answers to why you feel how you feel in your body. It is all
 Vibrational - no exception! And when you get that, then it doesn't 
matter what diagnosis has been given to you—it doesn't matter—it's

That may be true, but it only works in a perfect vacuum, unconnected to anything else. And in our society this particular point of view is not generically accepted in the mainstream as true.

What's theoretically possible doesn't always meet expectations, especially among the "educated", because our education in these matters, mainstream education, does not comply with the energetic model for health, in fact it opposes it. As a result you're more likely to witness or experience so called "miraculous" healing in a culture where strong faith predominates over these educational influences.

The culture of the miraculous tends to support itself within that environment, the culture of what we call "science" tends to do the same and unfortunately this often opposes the miraculous. The scientific method is one of doubt, scrutiny, control and repetition, and so essentially lab testing of miracles is the same as saying "let's see if this energetic effect happens when we remove the energy". Even if it does work and the "miracle" happens, they'll repeat the experiment until it doesn't anymore. Every repetition is an act of doubt, which reduces the energy available to do the work.

Pretty obvious really, but somehow our best scientific minds don't see the flaws in their own methods. I do think that the two worlds can come together with greater understanding, but mostly we aren't there yet. At some point in the future I think that the science of the miraculous will be much better understood.
