Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression

Revealing ~ part II

“Quite often, the direction we face reveals not only
the sight before us, but something richer and deeper still.”

~Robyn Lee

Here I share with you another photo I shot yesterday, a companion to Revealing « THROUGH THE HEALING LENS in order to  ‘reveal’ to you more of the environment in which these photos were created. Enjoy 😉

Much Love ~ RL!!

  4. No matter what you put around her, the true reveal is in the heart and soul 😉 , awesome concept and image, truly enjoying the venue!

    • Stan really are you a ‘closet poet’? 😉 Yes – that is where we all most go to find the true reveal … deep within, as nothing external can give us that kind of clarity. So glad you are enjoyig the venue.

  5. I love these self-portraits, Robyn. And the quotes are always intriguing. They always stop me in my tracks slow my thoughts and I take it in -I agree with Stan, it is heart and souls that touch here.So refreshing…

    • Wow..thanks Jane. I so appreciate. Sometimes the stop me in my tracks to when they come toghether after comtemplating a photo for a long time 🙂 Ys – heart and souls reveal the most if we listen carefully!! 🙂 Good thoughts your way!

    • Sometimes helpful – sometimes makes me dizzy! Still fun to do Julie – and you truly are the reason I have attempted this quote creation project… thank you for that 🙂 May need a break aso will have to consider a bold piece of famous poetry for tomorrow I think 🙂 Sending Love….

    Interesting play of light, shadows and reflections, Robyn.

    May 21, 2012 at 9:22 PM

    • Thanks Victoria…wasn’t thinking these images could be post-worthy, but then I reconsidered after the words occured to me 🙂

  8. Insanely clever and more unique than simple shadows…stared at this a long time, robyn:)

    • Wow – thank you David. I wasn’t going to post this, but wanted to share a more “revealing” image that showed what was behing that window. Then once up – i too stared at it for a long time… there are so many layers there – some I missed initially. I’m discovering so much magic behind the lens 🙂 You too I know! Sleep well!

      May 21, 2012 at 10:30 PM

      • Well…you’re photo required that kind of study…It doesn’t give up its secrets that easily:)))

        May 21, 2012 at 10:40 PM

      • Yes – this is very true David…this photo is much richer and deeper than I’d even realized when I posted it. I just noticed the second shadow of me on the boat’s exterior — Gosh how many shadow-selves does a gal really have, after all? 🙂

        May 21, 2012 at 10:56 PM

  9. excellent companion piece and like David i too had to stare at this for quite some time …
    even though a still photograph, there is so much going on there …
    an outside view inside and then back again, and then outside the other side windows …
    oh my gosh, me mind is all a twirl Robyn …:)

    May 21, 2012 at 10:39 PM

    • Yes Jim, and in addition, I realized there were actually 2 shadows of me in the photo…. one is in the window, and the other on the outside of the boat, below the window…. so I have a shadow double!! LOL!! All the layers really makes you think about how much we fail to observe in day to day life. The snap-shot helps us tune in. Though can certainly twril the mind – you are so right there!

  10. I really love the entire atmosphere of this picture, especially the lighting.
    Another great detail is that you can see the sea and some hills in the far background – very nice!

    May 22, 2012 at 5:51 AM

  11. Wonderful….so much to see here…the clouds…the sea…the interior light…and you…:)

    May 22, 2012 at 8:51 AM

    • Thanks Meryl! I did last night just also notice the clouds which appear on the ceiling of the interior. I think if I keep looking I will find more that initially went unnoticed. Reminds me of the game we used to play as kids where we would find pictures within pictures 🙂

  12. What wisdom is reflected in this reflection… I am totally captivated by today’s image, my friend.

    May 23, 2012 at 9:23 AM

    • Thanks Angela — yes so much here…and more than I even realized when posting it! So glad it resonated with you 🙂 – and today’s image (Light Sedation) as well!

      May 23, 2012 at 12:19 PM

  13. Love it! Especially the fact that no one else in the reflection is paying attention to what you are doing. The lighting is fabulous too, must have been near sunset.

    August 20, 2012 at 5:34 PM

    • Yes – isn’t that funny ~ may have been one of those one way windows — can’t recall — On the lighting – I do tend to go out later in the day – even on a normal day – but for this was definitely right before sunset as I got some cool sunset photos (blogged one called Permanence)… with a lighthouse. It is the very best time I have found too!! ~ thanks for checking these out — glad you enjoyed!! ~R
