These photographs were taken on Thursday and Friday (May 19/20), in a small port town, where I attended an art conference. May is the month in which I return home to do laundry and repack my luggage. I hope it’s been a good month for you.

Thank you so much. I’d trashed a whole set and then went back out for a redo. It’s always the posts you’re never confident about…

Thank you so much! It was a happy accident that I was able to do some good edits. I never thought the ship would make such a good impression but the response has been extraordinary.

I hope you enjoyed the conference SB. I can’t stop looking at your photos, they’re so intriguing. I found the first one particularly interesting because at first glance I couldn’t tell what it was but my brain registered a familiarity. It makes me think of how our brains are able to translate our upside down view into what we see as right side up, if that makes sense.

Thank you so much. I felt the same way when I looked at the first set of photos. I normally don’t do a double take at my own photos but after editing the first captures, I was like, “Why does this look like something I’ve seen before?” Nothing like a mind melt to spice up a photo shoot. xo

Thanks so much, MofMan. It is a Dutch built warship so that explains the sense of familiarity. I think abandoned beaches have their own mysterious stories.

Manuel, thank you. I was really not confident about the images on their own so posted a poem with the presentation. I was reassured by the reception and decided to take it down. Thanks for drawing my attention to the post. I realised I didn’t remove the footnote.

Beautiful SB. I somehow missed this post. That’s what the working life does to you. Hope your laundry and packing have gone well. You are quite the International Blogger of Mystery. Have a great week xx

I had no clue as I was reading. Of course I also went and read a little about Bionic Steve, although the article I read was more a general commentary on the culture of dancehall and the lifestyle (and deaths) of some of the singers. Till next time x

Thank you so much for your kind remarks and your question. When I look at a scene or object, I try to see it in the context of a story. It has to be part of my life, something I can relate to. Then I think of what’s expected and ordinary and try to deconstruct the image as much as possible.

Absolutely breathtaking! I can’t wait to see what’s next!

I just got back from the Northern Oregon Coast and need to sort through all the photos I took of my favorite lighthouse there.

Many Blessings on your Journey (and may you ascend Mt. Washmore with stealth and grace)

Thank you for your warm, Zen wishes. I’m very happy to hear from you. I will swing by and take a look at the photos as soon as they go live. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much. I find small towns rich with mystery as there are always some neglected corners with treasures waiting to be explored. xo

Fantastic! Moody, powerful images paired with bold sentiments. Enjoy your unpacking and laundering (I don’t mind doing laundry…an excuse to sit and busy the hands while the mind wanders!) This month has been interesting… we are receiving all our belated April showers in May 🙂

Hello Carrie and thank you so much. The unpacking part is a grind. And there are clothes waiting in the dryer at the moment. (I can’t be bovvered). Please take care not to get too soaked in the belated April showers. Warm hugs for Tuesday. xo

Thank you, Ruiz. Glad you enjoyed them. I was entranced by the cave; however, it was very shallow, so I enjoyed giving it depth in the photo. Have a lovely Tuesday. xo

Your photos are incredible! Photography was my first major…I never expanded to be as good. Thanks for leading me to your blog. I’ll be back to read more and pondered on your art.

Thank you. I am grateful for your support. It’s interesting that your latest post has a similar theme – getting away from the mundane. Have a lovely week ahead. xo
