The Emanation of Pansy Flowers

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Georgia O'Keeffe

It is nice to be recovering from surgery. Makes me wonder about the miracles of life; about how the body continues to regenerate and heal itself. It happens without any of your conscious input, much like breathing.

The hard thing to do sometimes is not to be the one that obstructs this natural flow of life but to trust in it instead.

Night with the Singapore Flyer | Singapore

"I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness - it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude."

Brene Brown

Admittedly I always seemed to be looking far away and awaiting for the next travel destination. Sometimes the most beautiful things are right where you are. I guess I haven't been sharing frequent shots of my own city ... the place that I call home.

Remember to enjoy yourself wherever you are my dear friends! Have an awesome weekend!

Love,
Darren

Eyes of a Gorilla

I have seen quite a lot of primates but there is nothing quite like looking into the eyes of a gorilla. This was the first time I actually saw one and when we actually had eye contact, it felt like he was looking through my whole being.

The strength that these great apes characterize are like second to none. It would be such a lost if they were to become extinct as they are currently listed as critically endangered.

Enjoy the weekend my dear friends.

Love,
Darren

Portrait of a Girgentana Goat

"We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person."

W. Somerset Maugham

Sometimes when we come across situations, people or even animals, it may be the first and the last time we will ever see them. If you are not aware, the opportunity to cherish the moment will be lost forever. For me, this beautiful goat is such an example. Who would have thought that even a goat can be an endangered species?

Have a great new week ahead dear friends and take good care!

Love,
Darren

Sculptures by Trevi | Rome

"You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle."

Paulo Coelho

Sharing a capture of one of my most favourite cities. This was taken from a building just beside the famous Trevi fountain. All the attention seems to be on the magical fountain itself and I felt that this beautiful structure also deserves some love and attention. It's amazing what you can find sometimes when you just look the other way.

Love,
Darren

Portrait of a Peruvian Pelican

"Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger."

Saint Basil

I love how the rain forces me to slow down sometimes when I am out shooting. We always tend to move too fast from one thing to another and fail to notice the little gems in each moment. This portrait couldn't have been possible if not for taking shelter under the heavy rain.

I have seen a lot of pelicans but this was the first time I actually took notice of a black one. This is a Peruvian Pelican and she is classified as a near-threatened species.

Love,
Darren
