Natural Awareness

A few months ago I was introduced to the world of Instagram. At first I couldn't see why my friends were so enthusiastic about it. However, as I started to take more photos with my iPhone and see how they could be enhanced using apps, together with meeting other creatives and seeing their amazing images from all around the world... I too became hooked! It's now a daily experience that I very much enjoy as an artist. My approach to taking a photo is pretty simple. I carry my phone with me just about everywhere and when something catches my eye I take the shot. This way it feels like it's those spontaneous mindless prompts from within that capture the best shots. Having taken and posted over 400 images now on Instagram and Facebook, I'm seeing that those little prompts are mostly towards images of Nature... seascapes, cloudscapes, landscapes, flowers, shells, rocks, animals etc. Pretty much anything that is of itself in it's natural state. I heard Rupert Spira speak recently on a video about Art and he explained how the human being is naturally drawn towards Nature as a reflection of his/her own natural state or awareness. I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you today. I hope you enjoy them.

Cheers Mx
