‘You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.’
A new close-up image for you all this weekend, enjoy! This week I’ve been busy continuing the latest mini photography project of ‘What do you see?’. I’ve also been creating hand-painted art, and a gift box idea with a twist! I’ll be doing an update post later on this weekend. If you would like to see more, I’m also on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/rsjourneypieces and Twitter – @rsjourneypieces ! You can get in touch with me through this site, Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Facebook page is all go, with lots more photo albums and images added, plus notes to help the ordering process. On here I’ve added a price page, as well as notes on the different types of image finishes to the ordering page.
No slowing down yet however, as the photography section is being revamped! This is to make it easier for everyone to view the images. So far there’s a completed page for just the rose themed images. Simply hoover over the photography tab to see this option.
Hope you are all having a great weekend, and for now whilst things are ticking and turning, here’s a new image –
What if everyone knew the reason behind that frown?
What if every insult was tattooed,
So that we could see what a sorry really doesn’t remove.
What if you had no one to talk to today?
Or you ignored the one person who needed you to help in your way?
What if we talked about brains and not brawn,
Words instead of fashion sizes?
Introducing my latest photography project, ‘What do you see?’.
Inspired by how we, the media, magazines, articles, even online talk about ourselves, others and celebrities. The words that are used to define someone. Rather than intelligence, brains, words, actions, we are still being described by physical attributes and the fashions we wear.
Our sizes, looks, clothes, weight, used every day, all over the world to generate articles, photographs, discussions. What is good for the goose, is not good for the gander. Where one person will be complimented for their great weight loss one day, the same place could also write a negative article about too much weight loss to another person. It only takes a flick through what should be the news sections of the internet to see this happening. Yesterday I did a flick through the first page of one news start page, and found ‘gym-toned’, ‘wrong clothes’, ‘cosmetic surgery addiction’, ‘incredible bikini body’, ‘vision of beauty’, ‘extremely thin’. All of these being used as parts of titles, defining that person within one sentence.
I’ll be working through this project with all of the above in mind, hoping to create a reaction to what is now seen as an every day, normal part of our life. Professionally printed photographic prints of the images from this project will be available to order. At the end of the project, any models will also be available to buy. Your support for the project will also help others, keep your eyes peeled, as I will explain all later into the project.
For now, here’s the first sneak image from the project that was shared with the Facebook page last night –

Anyone else left with that ‘Where did the weekend go?’ feeling? If so, you’re not alone, as it seems to have flown by too quickly here!
This weekend I have been working on a unicorn design hand drawn with pencils and pens. Here’s the result –

I’ve also been busy with product photography for another independent business, Bespoke Fantasy Costumes this week. New photos have been completed for their latest range of 3D printed items, including fishing snag ears. A couple more edits still to go to show off the full range.
Back to the unicorns, and in the theme of the latest art work, here’s a throw back to other unicorn images I’ve also completed –

A three day weekend, so maybe there’s time after all to catch up this weekend!
There was sun spotted today, so this share might be outside, trying to chase away the clouds from the rest of the area!
I would ask about your plans for this weekend, and want to listen to all the exciting things that you have planned. New places to see, new memories to be made. I’d listen to how your week has been, stuck between Easter and this bank holiday, this week seems to have flown by, as has April.
This week I’ve started a new mini photography project, and by started I mean I’ve not taken a single snap of the project yet! Too much to prepare first, and if I’m honest the clicking sound that I admire, probably won’t come until near the end of the project. Something to get my teeth into though.
There’s been new photography of birds, and still more photos waiting to be shared. The photography section on this site has been updated, some tweaks to the Facebook page, and a price list created for all those photography prints.
During sips of something sweet, I would let you know that my current mood is that good, that I’m choosing to not to react to those fixing their car. The little ones are happy, and that’s half the battle. If they are happy and there’s no world war three over (Add some insignificant inanimate object here) then I’m happy too.
What’s the one thing you didn’t want to do this week? Mine has been physiotherapy exercises. They suck. They hurt, and they fully highlight how ‘normal’ the strength and range of movement in my leg is not right now. But they are very much needed. A determination to beat the angle measurements next week, means continuing on.
That has led to a little grumble, which, I don’t even feel to be the right person to say. But, I have much more admiration this week for those that do have illnesses, accidents or disabilities that restrict their movements on a longer basis than my own. Some experiences have been easier than I imagined, others, well, let’s just say the U.K can do more to help give access to all places and shops to everyone. The very skinny paths that you can’t use, to the shops that have access for all, only to pile up each side of the entrance with their products, making for small aisles into the store. To those people who don’t, can’t or won’t give space to those requiring additional help to move around, or even allowing them to sit.
To end on a happy note, I would ask about what you have planned for next week, what’s got you excited? Are you surprised that we are less than 48 hours away from May? I know I am!
Go enjoy that cooled beverage, and hopefully see you the other side with more snaps!
Wow this week seems to have flown by here, doesn’t seem like two minutes since I posted about Monday motivation!
We’ve made it through somehow, and now just about to start enjoying a three day weekend (here in the U.K at least!).
Hoping you all have a great weekend, and here’s a new image to see in the weekend :

Quote – Maya Angelou.
Life is a journey. A journey made up of several experiences, steps and pieces along the way, not one. Each piece is as important as the last and the next, each one tells a story, to express, to give, to keep. Creating art, photography, crafty gifts with poetry and ramblings along the way!
