It’s been a long day

I was interrupted. People – People. – Phone. – Phone. – Endless. And I am so tired. – :And I would like to sleep under trees – Red ones – Blue ones – Swirling passionate ones – It has been a broken up day – … All fine – but I so damnably tired – I…found I had failed –

~ Alfred Stieglitz · [New York City] ·  June 30, 1917, from My Faraway One: Selected Letters of Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz

Aurora Simionescu came upon these illuminated paper umbrellas in a stand of bamboo trees at Kodaiji Temple. But capturing this image of the display wasn’t easy. “Illuminated traditional paper umbrellas were scattered throughout the temple grounds as a part of [the autumn illumination] festival,” she explains, “but I especially liked how they broke the monotony of the bamboo forest by adding a splash of color.

I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time..


“I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful.”

“I am not good at it…” (right)


Utham has a photography blog @ Light Touch with a tag line of “Just wondering at the miracle called life.”  Utham is from Kochi, India.  He is a neurosurgeon by profession and an amateur photographer.  His world as he describes it is “mostly of diseases, disabilities and deaths, mixed with occasional hopes and some happiness.  Perhaps, that keeps me humble, with feet firmly on the ground.”  He states in his bio “the charm of photography is in freezing the fleeting moment in time – forever. And, often, making the invisible, visible…all plain and simple.”  Utham shares some background on himself at this link including “beauty is something I love to see in people…(I love) caring for the less fortunate…and he goes on to assess his competency in photography stating that “I am not good at it.”  Sorry, Utham, I’d have to strongly disagree…you and your (spare time) work are “plain and simple” inspiring.  Check out Utham’s blog at Light Touch.
