Hi Steve,

Thank you!! Love the new design Steve :)

Hi Steve,

Thank you!! Love the new design Steve :)

glad you do! I change the designs mostly because of what I heard you say about having the same purple for ages!
but the main thing is the new design goes with your photography. by the way I wondered about your photography. I noticed that all the pictures you took of Lake Superior show land along the other side of the picture. I am assuming that  this area is like a cove of sorts because the land curves. Is this where you live?

Just wanted to say again: we appreciate your photography. every time I change the color of the forum somebody changed it back to purple. I wanted it to blend in well with your pictures having a color blue. I finally gave up the fight its not that important. besides your never going to make everybody happy. I think Namaste2All kept changing it to purple. it makes me laugh. because sometimes we're like little kids together . I guess you'd say that we fought over the toys a little bit! I figured I usually get my way so why not let him get his way from time to time!

Your questions about the gallery in the PM I can't answer  so I have to give it some time. no doubt you can eliminate pictures and put new pictures up. but I'm going to have to look to the formatting and possibly get help from others to find out just how much memory we have to download pictures for the gallery.

all for now love you

Steve

Steve this is your forum and all changes should go through you!! If you want to make changes then they gotta learn to respect that!! :)
People are just too afraid of change sometimes change is a good thing!! :)

No worries i just won't post any for awhile since your the only one who appreciates them!! Thanks Steve!! :)

Well I'll try it one more time. The color purple is how the forum started. It has always been that way and I think we associate our site with purple.

Yes I think this color looks better with her Photography. Perhaps when I get together with
Serena we can make some different changes... we'll see..

I think, it is very protective which is partly influenced by the planets in cancer in the 7th house of relationships..had to throw that in..... but it only seems like its my forum to her because by default I'm the one that's around the most.

Oh no Katzie not mine alone LOL ... you have to take some credit for the psychdrama! It's convenient ducking out when the rotten eggs are being thrown.  ;D...technically speaking!
why is it that I always end up in stitches! ... and yes that can be taken several ways!
there's something not quite right here...

Sorry Comet, for going off track in your photo thread

any new pictures ? Ever take pictures of fireworks ?

Comet, I just found the link to your photography..... thanks ! AWESOME pictures, I just love the sunset ones, colors are just amazing !  :)

I think you should enter some of your photos in a photo or magazine contest, have you ever done that ?

Katzie

Thanks for apologizing for me I must have got distracted... l'm back on track now... I couldn't agree with you more; that would be a wonderful idea. FIREWORKS!  ;D Just take safety precautions before lighting them! I have found that it is best to stay away from the areas in which thery are being lit. They can backfire. Maybe it has something to do with being born on the 4th of July. I can't say for sure. Just be careful Comet. I'm looking out for your interests believe me.

was not suggesting Comet light fireworks . I was wondering if she had viewed any displays from the last holiday and happened to have her camera with her ?

I especially like the picture on the far right. It gives me that far away feeling. Here closer to Earth,
We have pills that give a similar feeling. I would like to recommend them to Ms.Katzie for her re entry into The Portal. They might come in handy. Either  risperdal, zoloft, depakote and alas ativan to calm the nerves down. No more seroquel/quetiapine it put our Sleeping Beauty in a coma and I think she woke up yep ayep yep ayep

Hi Comet I enjoy your new picture you added on the far left above. i called it: Fire in the Sky
The dark clouds above the Sun makes it look like it is smoldering.


Title: Re: Comets' Photography
Post by: Steve Hydonus on Aug 25, 2013 03:00 am
I guess you could say that your pictures paint a story for me that gradually grows on me. I put a name to each of them in the comments. They are quite a change to our pictures of spiritual masters and some other pictures that members put up over time. Yet I really think they reflect a general change around here. Sometimes we just have to get used to a change of members and a change of life. Some people leave our lives and others come into our lives and become stronger friends. It is quite difficult to explain and understand it all.  A few people stay around most of our lives. Life is quite a drama.

Some people that I have spent so much time with for a shorter periods glowed so strongly for a while. I could have never predicted their disappearance at the time. It was like watching a beautiful fire at the time. But when the fire was gone they left. Other people seem to be there forever. I can only chase people for so long then I leave them to their own free will. It is nice to have you with us/me for so long. Some people bring the comfort of their presence for a life time. We grow and change with them and recognise their spirit when we see them again in another time and another life. We help each other in that journey that brings us back together in spirit.

Scott mentioned something about what I wrote here today. Friends are often like that.We make connections with what they say and do. We put together the pieces that tell the story. Each one of us has some missing pieces that fit into the total picture.

Post by: Steve Hydonus on Aug 31, 2013 11:53 am
I wonder if anyone has noticed: if you look at the sunset before its going down: sometimes you see the sunset glowing over part of the  lake. You close your eyes and see that glow and it turns all kinds of iridescent colors. Paramahansa Yogananda has a technique  involving the sunset. 15 minutes before the sunset you stare into the Sun light. The ultraviolet rays are not dangerous at that time and then you close your eyes and see the image of the Sun. I have looked across the water as it shimmers across the lake to the shore then closed my eyes and have seen such beautiful colors in my inner gaze. Comets photographs remind me of such experiences.

We enjoy the wonderful photography you are sharing with us!  The full moon has usually found me in a harmonious relationship
with the world around me. Perhaps it is because it is easier to see the beauty around us during a full moon. Your pictures serve as a reminder!

Hey Steve,

I have taken a few but i also been dealing with the shoulder and camera issues so without a camera in the process of searching for a new
one just got the I Phone 5 at the moment takes great pictures but need a zoom lens! I would post more to the gallery but there isn't enough room one day i might just start a thread!

Comet :)

I am happy for you - that you are blessed with the funds to continue your photography passion. Perhaps we will soon see some new pictures from you. In the meantime I hope some of our members offer new pictures for our photography above.

I see your getting into your art again. Its nice to have something you feel enthusiasm about in life! Your camera must have video capability as well. It makes me want to get out and swim! Or if it's cold-jump in and then run along the beach, exercise and meditate.
