Foot

The foot is an integral part of the human body. It is unique to each individual. It represents the footprint man makes. It is integral to what man has evolved to become.

Oasis

I Found this bottle brush finding its niche on a rock in a creek. It’s like a natural bonzai.

Paint Between the Lines

Somewhat offhand political statement. Our education system always wants us to paint inside the lines. Our political thought is about boundaries and conformities.Think outside the lines . PLEEAAASSSEEEE.

ORGANICS

This post in influenced by recent viewings of David Attenborough’s documentaries about the once great Barrier Reef.

The ability of ecosystems to regenerate is immense but they need help to not go beyond the point of no return. Life is precious and we need to rethink consumerism for the sake of ownership and economics.

Hand Print

With due respect, I acknowledge that hands are a significant symbol for many cultures.

The number of ideas the hand can evoke are many. Power, ownership and identity all can be symbolised by the hand. A handshake, a wave, a simple gesture of agreement or hatred all instantly give an idea of the character of an individual.

Stereotypical ideas are quickly drawn. The hand has a language that is often the first impression you receive from an individual before you meet them properly and influences everything you may judge them by.

Enough said.
