Walking at the beach close by, I discovered the beauty of those tiny shells.
I am always wondering about the life within little shells compared to our lives which we think is a bigger life…
Aren’t we at times living in our little shell …
…. having not discovered our own inner beauty without living in a shell…
…. it is what is within our shell , what we call our soul.

During the midst of the Corona Virus time I had taken my camera outside to my tiny flowerbed.
Capturing the Scabiosa, a simple summer flower in all it’s forms…
… and color… this is the eggplant colored one.
It all started out a few years ago with a few seeds I had put randomly in the soil and now every year …
… I am blessed with an abundance of blooming.
” You don’t necessarily need a soil to plant seeds into… It’s a simple thing to put a seed in your mind to make it grow and blossom”
Since Covid took place I haven’t gone far to any places to photograph. Yet I discovered the magic of nature right in front of my door.
One of those days as I opened my front door, quickly I grabbed my camera and let it dive into the “underworld” of the Fern.
It was just magic unfolding in front of my lens, the splendid masses of Fern
The little dots being seen under the leaves are spores which reproduce themselves being dispersed by the wind and than fertilize.
Just a simple plant like Fern has the power to remind us of the magic of nature.
Enjoy what you see and feel.
During this Corona Virus lockdown, there are not many places to go to photograph, so I turned to my tiny flower bed.
Even a weed shows it’s own beauty….
… because of it’s simplicity ….
” Recognizing the simplicity of a weed or flower is a step to see and experience the world in a different perspective”
The Calla Lily flower is known for it’s elegance…
….it is royal…
” The essence of a flower is giving us the beauty of nature and life”

A rose is a gift from the heart….
usually giving a rose is something romantic like to a lover ..
…yet a rose presents compassion to anybody
…that’s why I give roses to myself, to capture them in stillness.
Today, July 6th, His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama is celebrating his 85th birthday.
I was honored to be part of his 80th birthday celebration, 2015 at the Staples Center, Anaheim in California.
Outside of the Stadium people were drawing birthday wishes onto a wall.
As I was seated on the last tier all the way up, all my captures were only taken from a big screen placed above the stage, therefore my images are not the best of quality I had wished for.
The Dalai Lama greeted many of the numeral guest speakers in his own way.
Among the many guest speakers, Shirin Ebadi, the first Persian female Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2003.
And his dearest friend Bishop Desmond Tutu on video tape.
One of the many beautiful performances
A huge birthday cake presented
… the Dalai Lama saying ” I love sweets”..
One of his numerous sayings ….
” I believe that whether a person follows any religion or not is unimportant, he or she must have a good heart, a warm heart”
Dear Dalai Lama, we all wish that your compassionate heart will beat for a long time.
” If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change” by The Dalai Lama
Enjoy the moment and what you see….
All images were taken last year at the Lotus Flower Festival in Los Angeles

…..breathing has recently become a different plateau of none breathing.
….. we all breath and share the same air, no matter what continent or what color or what believe…..
I won’t getting political here, rather than standing to breathe..
….like a flower, we all need the same oxygen to breath and that’s what makes us all connected.
Let’s all together breathe for peace
