Lotus Carroll1,778,402This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one! Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tutorial & Tips* Need some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear!

What Does A Racist Look Like?

Maybe my appearance makes people take assumptions? Maybe I fall into a stereotype?

Conversation yesterday while sat in my car:

Hey mate love your car.

Cheers

Do it yourself?

No mate just the interior at the moment.

Nice, bet your made up with the vote, we have to stick together now.

What are you talking about?

Brexit, us British have to stick together now and get this country back.

Back from who?

The immigrants.

Ah I see, well there is a problem with that.

Why?

My forefathers are immigrants, my first name is Michael and taken from my mothers Irish blood, my middle is Frederick from my grandfathers Germanic blood and my last being Shaw from my families Scottish blood. Going back further I have links to the Middle East, and... mehr »

Sometimes We Get Lucky.

One of the things I have learnt with wildlife photography is it takes as much luck as it does skill. Animals do not understand the need to pose for the camera, they have their own environment and their own way of doing things and they really don't care if you want to take their image or not.

Take this peregrine falcon, it was simply a case of taking images as it sat and watched what was going on, eventually it held a pose that I liked and it was a case of hitting the shutter button. More luck than skill.

Tell Me Again?

How you are king of all you see.
How you are top of the food chain?

Stand as naked as he is, stand in his environment, fight with what you have with you just as he does. Tell me then who is king of all he sees, tell me then who is top of the food chain?

We forget that as we sit in our ivory towers there are much more powerful creatures that share this planet. It was by a twist of fate and nothing more that allowed our evolution to develop as it did. If not for that it could have been a whole different story.

Maybe the time has come to remind ourselves of this, maybe we all need to face a lion as it stalks us to understand our place in this world. Then and only then maybe we shall learn to respect the earth all all that lives upon it.

Another camera for sale.

It's the LUMIX DMC-GX8 coupled with the Lecia DG Summilux 15mm f1.7 ASPH lens.

Cost new in excess of £1200 in the UK. This has been out of the box, used once and put back in the box. It has the 4K resolution (that in itself is stunning)

It's a small enough camera that can easily be carried around but as its the mirrorless system I struggle to get on with it.

£750 ONO.

PM if interested.

Going back further I have links to the Middle East, and further afield in Europe including Eastern Europe. What this country needs taking back from is narrow minded right wing racists fucking idiots much like yourself who probably don't even realise their DNA contains genomes from around the world.

No need to be like that!

Yes there is, there is every need to be just like that now I suggest you fuck off before I allow my mania lose on your arse. 😡___

This land beneath my feet no longer steadfast in its foundations.
My way adrift around my world and in my heavens.
I see no more the life I have or wish for.
Only the dust that rises upon the wind of my sorrow.
Stay steady they say, stand true when all around you are drowned in lies and deceit.
But heavy my heart, heavy my soul, heavy my mind and body.
No longer willing nor able to carry this weight.
I fall to my knees and watch as the tears of my despair well upon the earth.
They promised a land upon generations to grow.
They promised a utopia, a Shangri-La for dreams to soar.
The mare though she came to ride roughshod.
And upon the barren ground only the broken earth remains.
Within the bloodshed of brothers, mothers, fathers, sisters and children.

In uniforms so stiff and presented, they stop no bullet nor blood.
Deserts from oasis created for riches.

Barren land from forests created for gain.

Today's the day of the pink tutu!

Yes I'm going to look silly but I can't think of a better reason to look silly for 😊

I'm doing the Rainbow Ramble with my good friend Phil Proudfoot who's beautiful daughter Millie attends Rainbow House. This wonderful organisation helps children and their families all the time and me spending a little time in a pink tutu is nothing compared to the work this place does or the struggles these children overcome everyday.

To date with help from all you beautiful people we have raised over £1,300 online and I have managed just under £200 from friends and family as well.

This is one last push to try and see if we can get anymore of your money 😬

What do I want?

To see Millie and all the other beautiful children like her smile a lot. You help with that and by doing so you will help me have a wonderful birthday.

Myself and Millie's father Phil Proudfoot are doing a charity run to raise funds for a wonderful organisation called Rainbow House that helps to look after people with disabilities such as al the gorgeous Millie.

I'm going to attempt the 11 mile run but because of a recent diagnosis I can't really push it much more past that. I am though going to be doing it in a pink tutu because of the amount of money you all have helped to raise. This though is were it is getting interesting, Phil has said if it hits £2000 then he will run it in full drag 😬.

Good morning.

I would like to introduce you to the beautiful Millie, she is the daughter of a good friend Phil Proudfoot. As you can see she has a smile that lights up the world.

I'm asking you and the power of social media to help myself and Phil make that smile even brighter. Millie depends on a lot of help from a lot of people, one organisation is called The Rainbow House that are simply wonderful.

Good morning.

I would like to introduce you to the beautiful Millie, she is the daughter of a good friend Phil Proudfoot. As you can see she has a smile that lights up the world.

I'm asking you and the power of social media to help myself and Phil make that smile even brighter. Millie depends on a lot of help from a lot of people, one organisation is called The Rainbow House that are simply wonderful. They are holding a charity event on the 23rd of April called The Rainbow Ramble. It's a run or walk (or in my case a crawl) over 5, 11 or 18 miles. Although I hate running I figure it's nothing really when it comes to seeing Millie's and all the other children's smiles that Rainbow House help.

So I'm letting you all decide what distance I should run, if we raise £500+ I'll run the five miles, £1100+ I'll run the 11 miles and £1800+ I'll run the 18. I also agreed (I must be nuts) that if we manage more than £2000 then I would fun it in a pink tutu 😳.

If you can donate then please click the link below 😊

I know and understand that not everyone can donate but if you can then even a small amount is a huge help. Also social media can be a wonderful place, you can put a picture up of a cute kitten and watch it go viral. I would love the image of beautiful Millie to go just as viral, after all who could resist such a smile 😊. So please share this far and wide and let's see social media at its best, let's get this wonderful organisation as much help as it deserves.

Thank you,
Mike 😊❤️

Gemini Moon

Deafening cacophony of silence echoes
Fills the void to excess
Breaking moments of nothingness
I watch and weep tears of fruitily

Gemini moon wanders overhead
Gentle glide across skies of moths
Screaming whisper for only my ear
Bright darkness reflects mine eye

Turn your back to look away
From ruined coil
The dark side to hide in comfort
The dark side to cradle

Chatter to the stars
In voice of trembling fear
A mothers tongue
Never translated to understand

Man I once was
Boy I never could be
Aged through war and destruction
Killed damned soul of irredeemable cancer

Can you recall the Gemini moon
Beyond the genus of man
Can you deliver memories forgotten
Or lost in history to be repeated

Pray tell Gemini moon

Aged through war and destruction
Killed damned soul of irredeemable cancer

Can you recall the Gemini moon
Beyond the genus of man
Can you deliver memories forgotten
Or lost in history to be repeated

Pray tell Gemini moon
When rotation turns the night shadow round
Do you find comfort
In what is unseen

Is relief within this damned night
Cast shadows across the mind
Your sister bright
She burns the hearts sorrow deep

She visits me through silver burnished
Revealing the cracks upon my conception
And fear that lies ashen
Debris remain to be picked

And so time never lasting
Forever to be my burden
Gemini moon is passing
Until night sleeps again

Whispers of madness still echo
In silence deafening mourns
Escape within the sanctity
Of my inward foetus caress

Gemini moon I loathe the bright
I fear the night
Insanity of mine own making
Destruction at my own hand

Mankind am I
Pitiless I will be
Gone to become
Forgotten to be remembered

Sometimes We Get Lucky.

One of the things I have learnt with wildlife photography is it takes as much luck as it does skill. Animals do not understand the need to pose for the camera, they have their own environment and their own way of doing things and they really don't care if you want to take their image or not.

Take this peregrine falcon, it was simply a case of taking images as it sat and watched what was going on, eventually it held a pose that I liked and it was a case of hitting the shutter button. More luck than skill.

Moments Of Clarity

Where do you get yours?
That moment when everything comes into focus, everything suddenly has a purpose, a reason. Sometimes its when you least expect it, others when you do. Such as that one moment the sun breeches the clouds and hits a standing stone on Castlerig Stone Circle. I wonder over the many centuries how many others have stood and witnessed the same, felt the same?

The Promises Of Life.

The sun will rise, the sun will set, the rains will fall, the droughts will come, the people will be born, the people will die, the mountains will stand fast, the rivers will flow, the air will be warm and fade to cold.

Life goes on, this is the only promises it can make, don't spend time staring at the ugly, it will make for an ugly mind, spend time staring at the beautiful for that is what we are capable of. This planet earth might be one of a kind within a billion other universes, we may well be alone but she gives you more than she will ever ask for.

What You Think You Know!

The internet is far removed from reality, the cyber world is just that, another world. It's a place you are able to shape and form an alternative of yourself. You show who you want to be rather than who you really are. We all weave a web to cocoon ourselves from a reality and portray what we think we feel others should know.

We all do it, it's a self preservation system we have built in, more utilise this self preservation than others. It's to protect our private inner sanctity so we surround ourselves with half truths as a shield.

So we think we know, we believe we know who is there on the other side of the keyboard based on what they let us know about them. It's only by taking down the shields of half truths do we liberate ourselves form the constraints we place on ourselves.

So we think we know, we believe we know who is there on the other side of the keyboard based on what they let us know about them. It's only by taking down the shields of half truths do we liberate ourselves form the constraints we place on ourselves.

I know people's thoughts about me, I know I hear things such as "compassionate" "caring" but I show you that side. The other side you do not see, only those close to me know me for real, my wife Jude knows what it is like to live with a man with mental health issues, how bipolar controls my moods and has to be counter-controlled by medication. Without it I am talked down of bridges or out of a siege. I'm not easy to live with, I know that and it takes a special someone to handle me. I know that but you don't because I have only one real layer I show you. The deeper hidden layers I don't portray here, the dark days where the black dog hunts me down and I turn back on it snarling back, when anger reaches a crisis point during a manic stage. Those you don't see, I chose not to show you, afraid they are shown as a sign of weakness, I'm mentally unstable but I'm not the only one. One in four people suffer, one in four families suffer along with them. So many hide in the shadows too afraid to come out, too afraid to be stigmatised.

Walk out from the shadows and liberate yourself. Take the help that is there, reclaim your life from the black dog and find comfort in those that love you and willing to help.___

I struggle to understand.

How some fucking "people" (I use that term loosely) deem that they have some sort of right or justification to kill others?

Faith? Creed? Colour? It's a long list they use, they will pigeonhole you with a label they don't like and within a belief structure they have they will convince themselves and others, that under that structure, they are free to kill at will.

It's not a new problem, it has been part of the human make up for centuries but for a species that is supposedly advanced we not only never learn from past experiences but revert to type time and time again. We just find more efficient ways to do it.

To those who carried out the attacks in Paris and many other atrocities over the recent years, you fuckers have lost any right to be classed as human anymore. You fuckers are now a species all of your own. I... mehr »

You fuckers are now a species all of your own. I cannot even call you part of the animal kingdom as that is an injustice to animals as a whole. You are nothing more than bipedal parasites and like any other parasite you need to wiped from the earth.

You may be celebrating your actions now but I think you forget that the world WILL react. There has always been a reticence to get too deeply involved in the past, do you believe that by your actions to have enforced that reticence? No, you have enforced a desire to ensure every single one of you are hunted down and destroyed like the vermin you are.

Then you will rot in the hell of your own making.___

The Autumn Photographer

There is an old saying, you can't see the woods for the trees!
When out taking landscape images we are always looking for that one big wow image, the picture that has it all, the sunset, the sunrise like no other, the trees deep in the colours of autumn, the cascading water over a fall.

In doing so we forget that the littlest things are right under our noses, or in this case our feet, it's just a field I walked through carpeted with autumnal leaves, its simple but it's the memory it evokes for me.

Hello Insomnia My Old Friend 

I have been awake since 2 in the morning, lying in bed looking at the ceiling in the dark. At 4 I gave up and thought I would get up and do something so I am sat at the PC, cup of coffee listening to the rain hit the conservatory roof. 

When my mind is in this state, neither awake nor asleep I tend to want to edit images and it's also the time I enjoy it the most. My mind is wandering between reality and dreams, I let it wander and see what it does, I suppose you could call it subconscious editing. I enjoy this though, there is a freedom in allowing a half dream state to take over and seeing where it takes you.

Black Jaguars Can't Change Their Spots!

The old saying is leopards but not many people realise that black jaguars are in fact spotted but they are so much harder to see due to their colouration. If though you catch in the right light the iridescence of the fur will show you the markings of this beautiful creature.

Wasting Time

Probably the best thing you can do with your time is to waste it. We spend so much of our lives scurrying around being productive, using our time wisely, getting things done. 

We forget we need to take time out, to smell the air, feel the breeze on our skin, listen to the morning chorus and watch the sun slowly set.

Will you remember all those spreadsheets you accomplished, all those targets you hit and the money you made when you are old? Or will you remember sitting on a dock by a lake watching the sun go down?

Waste as much time as you can.

I'm fairly sure if you ask Brooke what her favourite colour is it would be easy to figure out.

I met her while out in Liverpool and as I always tell everyone, if a person stands out in a crowd they will stand out in a portrait and Brooke certainly does.

She is Australian but is living in the UK at present.

BTW, yes her eyes are purple too!

Fate whispers to the warrior

"You cannot withstand the storm"

And the warrior whispers back

"I am the storm"

Sometimes our minds and souls go to sleep lulled into a sense of just being, existing, getting through each day. We need something to rekindle that fire we let go out, to put the beat back into our hearts so as to live again. These chances to restart are within each and everyone one of us, it just takes courage to be the warrior that can take it on. To have the soul to once again to be alive.

I am no longer afraid of the storm, I am the storm.

Listen To The Ancients

There is more to history than old buildings and museums. There is a history in every land that has been laid down by the ancients, put there for a reason, to tell the future something. A story we have not yet been able to decipher but holds our attention.

This is Castlerigg Stone Circle in the Lake District UK, they say it was raised some 3000 years BC, to look to the mountains of Hellvelyn and High Seat that you can see the sun set behind. Its a place of great mystery to me.

Be free from the gravity that holds you down
Search within the skies that holds your dreams
Let the air feed your heart so as to keep you in flight
Let your desires feed your soul so as to keep you alive.

My world at times is wrapped up in what beauty there is out there, I can and do get lost at times when photographing animals as they hold so much deep within me. You make connections if only you are willing to look, to see, to believe.

Weaveworld Of Seasons

As colours are recast in hues of reds and golds.
As days shorten to embrace the chill in the air 
Within this weaveworld of autumn we wander
As the land slowly drifts into slumber we ready ourselves
For we are no more than seasons of life ourselves
Passages of time reflect the mortal coil within our souls
We are the pattern within the weaveworld
The silken thread of life and death

If I Ask?

The sun to set in colours of gold will it keep me warm?
The clouds to float in skies of blue will they give me shade?
The rivers and lakes to ripple a song for me to hear?
The beat of my heart to keep rhythm with my world?
My soul to hold the times most gentle in memories to recall?

If I ask will this become?

The beat of my heart to keep rhythm with my world?
My soul to hold the times most gentle in memories to recall?

If I ask will this become?___

Behind The Beauty 
Can belie a fierceness never before known.
When a big cat holds your gaze it can see straight through you, deep within your being, if you have the courage to hold that contact then you are allowed, for the briefest of moments, to know just how power they possess behind their beauty. Snow leopards are without doubt creatures that evoke spirits of our history, of the land, of beauty behind the eyes.
I believe and always have that big cats are spiritual creatures that will show you a deeper meaning to yourself, if you chose to take their path you will gain so much, if you don't they will simply tolerate you.

Solitude.
Its that moment between inhaling and exhaling, for that miniscule amount of time the world stops, your soul caresses your heart and being alone is a place you just need to be. Nothing but the sound of your breath and the beating of your heart, all thoughts slow to a standstill and clarity is your mirror, reflecting back what you fail to see.

Find your place where solitude can be your guide.
