Some people try to color inside of the lines, when they are really meant to color outside of the lines and create masterpieces. Don't try to fit in, when you are meant to stand out and be different. You are a true work of art, don't ever try to change that.

kiss another day goodbye 🌄
This image was taken two years ago, along the Great Ocean Road, Victoria. I think it was somewhere between Aireys Inlet and Lorne, and I feel I should know exactly where, but it was one of those moments when the light was fading and we found a car park so I could take the camera out for a wander while the kids rugged up and found drift wood.
It was shot as a long exposure, to try and capture the softness I was feeling... the transience, the movement, the shifting tides, like a shifting mindset. This was one of those thought through captures, though taken from a spontaneous stop... The print (thank you @imagescience )was challenged for a Gold award, and that pretty much blew my mind... Me... my photo being put in the coveted Gold category by even one judge quite literally brought me to tears. While it didn't quite get up to Gold, a Silver Distinction in this highly regarded category was by far a highlight for these awards.

De este lugar ya solo quedan las anécdotas de mamá y las manos desgastadas de aquellas sufridas lavanderas. •
"Labores, trabajos y misiones que hoy, afortunadamente, ya no se conocen, mientras que la historia de los sufrimientos y de las durezas quedan atrás.
Las lavanderas, aquellas sufridas lavanderas, que tenían su origen en los estratos más humildes de la sociedad, fueron hijas, esposas, madres sacrificadas casi hasta, y quizás sin el casi, hasta el final de sus días. Multiplicaban las horas de trabajo doméstico, fregar, lavar, planchar, cocinar, limpiar, coser, bordar, remendar, ir al mercado, lavar la ropa, caminaban de modo impenitente y esforzado hasta tanques cómo La Aurora, del Soldado, La muñeca...
se dejaban las manos, entre las frías aguas invernales, y se dejaron, al tiempo, todo un mundo, apenas reconocido, por sacar adelante la casa junto al jornal, estirando el sueldo, si es que lo había."

Such a pretty view everywhere you look! The White Cliffs of Dover really are pretty but be prepared for steep narrow pathways centimetres from the cliff edge 😬 #whitecliffsofdover

Spring makes for great clouds. I think I need to get a white and red cane to walk along with though, safer for me and those around me. 🙄
The truth shall set you free! ❤
