Little treasures at the beach

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…

DSC_7909 copy.jpg 40

Aren’t we at times living in our little shell …

DSC_7918

…. having not discovered our own  inner beauty without living in a shell…

DSC_7932 copy.jpg 40

…. it is what is within our shell , what we  call our soul.

The simplicity of a summer flower

DSC_0629 copy.jpg 40

During the midst of the Corona Virus time I had taken my camera outside to my tiny flowerbed.

DSC_0648 copy.jpg 40

Capturing the Scabiosa,  a simple summer flower in all it’s forms…

DSC_0697 copy.jpg 40

… and color… this is the eggplant  colored one.

DSC_0641 copy.jpg 40

It all started out a few years ago with a few seeds I had  put  randomly in the soil and now every year …

DSC_0703 copy.jpg 40

… 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”

The magic of nature…Fern

DSC_0677 copy.jpg 40

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.

DSC_0679.jpg copy 40

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.

DSC_0682 copy.jpg 40

It was just magic unfolding in front of my lens, the  splendid masses of Fern

DSC_0685 copy.jpg 40

The little dots being seen under the leaves are spores which reproduce themselves being dispersed by the wind and than fertilize.

 

DSC_0687 copy.jpg 40

Just a simple plant like Fern has the power to remind us of the magic of nature.

Enjoy what you see and feel.

usually giving a rose is something romantic  like to a lover ..

…yet a rose presents compassion to anybody

Happy Birthday His Holiness Dalai Lama

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.

Breathing……

…..breathing has recently become a different plateau of none breathing.

 

DSC_7311copy 40

 ….. we all breath  and share the same air, no matter what continent or what color or what believe…..

DSC_7310 copy 40

I won’t  getting political here, rather than standing to breathe..

DSC_7309 copy 40

….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
