Flora

When we look more closely at our colourful friends underfoot, we can discover a wonderful world of pattern, spectacular hues and strange relationships between plants and creatures. Most vegitation is in a state of constant change, quite fast in relation to us humans. A season of 3 months can be the birth and death of a plant, and even in that lifetime the glory days are shorter, flowering, seed and pollen generation and transfer to the visiting pollinators.

Enjoy the images and please use the picture show for meditation or healing, or just for the joy of it.

Mediterranean Seascapes

Captured Sunday 22 January 2017 at Sant Pol de Mar – by Greville.E

With the weather having given us a bit of a beating recently, …and a good show, here’s a picture show in honour and respect for the Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean Sea is a sea connected to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin and almost completely enclosed by land: on the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia, on the south by North Africa, and on the east by the Levant.  Wikipedia

Area: 2.5 million km²

Not only our planet, but also the entire universe is formed from material particles in the act of Elements. It is just the dissimilarity of the elements to which we owe many thanks for the diversity of the world we live in. However, all things visible and invisible originate from only one source of life. That is why recognition of the four faces of all-including unity, out of which the elements arose, enables man to develop spiritual consciousness and become aware of this unity.

Fire, water, air and earth as we commonly know them are but outwardly manifested forms of the Elements themselves. Their manifestations are as follows: the element of water has magnetic properties; it nurtures and sustains. The element of fire has electrical and creative properties. Air is a detaching element and enables co-existence of the two main elements, fire and water. The element of earth binds fire, water and air in various proportions, which makes possible the formation of materials with different properties.

Time to Fly – Frankie M

Runway

Sparky dedicates this picture show by Frankie Malone to Frank Moylett – 16 years old, who suddenly left this world not long ago. A short but very worthy life worth celebrating – Godspeed Frank, and please help guide us as we carry on learning to live with ourselves.

Captured 14th May 2015 at Barcelona Airport – by Frankie Malone

Best Viewed on desktop or laptop screen – ok on tablets but only details on mobiles.

A selection from an immersive and brooding series of abstract images of the runways at BCN, every image has value in it’s own right, and when brought together in sets, can stimulate a variety of moods and pensive observation – the symmetry, tone and graphic composition is masterful – Sparky

‘I took these pictures in a 3 hour period from a plane at Barcelona Airport while delayed on a flight to Ireland to pay respects to my Nana, as she had died a couple of days beforehand.  I feel almost closer to her now that she has passed away, just like my Grandfather before her.  Time To Fly is about death but like death it’s also about birth, or rebirth.’ – Frankie Malone
