Fickle Friday: Hold On
Drowning in our days

As the night owl left his trees

Calm is raising fast

That our best is shown our worst

Change, I love the past

Let go of what we had

Our lives are on repeat

Working hard, holding the peace

We will try to overcome

We will try

And just hold on
There is always a reason to smile by RDores
And we'll go on
The storm is coming by MarcosRodriguez
And just hold on
!! Good morning...!!!! by MamaMika

April Favourites III
Here's another feature this month with the beautiful works I've found this week. Next week I'll be starting university, so maybe I won't be so active, but hopefully I'll still find the time to create as well as to appreciate the art around here. 
Enjoy these amazing artworks!

Lawrence James Cornell
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
For the past few years I have spent my spare time travelling to different parts of the UK to try to get to know my own country and its people better. Photography is my passion. I hope my pictures tell the story I want to tell.

Please respect my right to my images. If you want to use them for any reason please contact me first and ask me. Otherwise I retain all copyright to all of my work.

Please fave as many pictures as you like. I appreciate all of them. What I love is comments. Please leave comments. I will always reply to comments.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it–stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.” – Joel Meyerowitz

"I operate not as a photographer but as a human being. I try to balance what I photograph not as a photographer but as a person, a man, and photography has got nothing to do with it. It is just something I have learnt, it is just a way of communicating". Don McCullin

You can also find me at…

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda Badge of Gratitude Participants II by TeaPhotography


Hi everyone
I'm so sorry I have got so behind looking at your wonderful art
April is always a very busy time of year for me with work anyway
and I have also just got out of the hospital where I was having tests 
to discover I have a double hernia that needs repairing. That wasn't
in my plans.
I promise I will catch up soon though. I have to get this week out
of the way then I think I will have some of my life back again. 
Much love to you all as always. I really miss being here when anything
keeps me away. Take care everyone and keep spreading the love.
You can buy a small book of a selection of my Isle Of Skye pictures here.
You can just have a look at it if you like.…

Good day everyone. It is a holiday in England today so here I am catching up on a few things and I realised it is a month since my last journal. How time flies when you are busy. April is my busiest work month and I always get a bit behind with everything but I always catch up in the end. It is why I always take a week off in May. I need to re-charge my batteries.
Following on from my last journal there was a lot of response to boxes of photographs and actual books being preferable to handle than screens and hard drives. I have given this some thought and in one reply to a comment I had the following to say. 
It's interesting that some people always say the old days were best and these people are usually from the elder part of society. Not exclusively but mainly. There are strange things afoot over here at the moment. In the uk there are many areas where the youth are going back to older ways because they actually find them better. This is ways that existed before their time. It is previous generation stuff.

Examples of this are an increase in the use of film and film cameras. A big growth in sales of record players and vinyl records and there is even a renewed interest in the use of cassette tapes too. 
The significant thing these have in common is that analogue technology has more in common with the human experience than digital. 
People who support the analogue technology, whether talking about photography or music, essentially say the same thing. Analogue has a warmer feel than digital which is a bit too cold and clinical and, if you like, a little too perfect and detached. (Obviously this is vastly simplified for the sake of the narrative).  People associate with the 'flaws' of analogue. The pops and clicks and scratches. The fact is the analogue range of experience is narrower but it fits into the relatively narrow range of human experience better than digital where the range is so big we actually don't experience all of it. I don't know if this is happening in other parts of the world too. I personally like having the choice to use either when I want to. Both have their attractions for me. 
Going back to my story about how I ended up with photography playing such a large part in my life I thought I'd touch on how it became so important to me. This might be a little confusing because we all have slightly different education systems. Here a secondary school is where you go from 11 to 16/17. Maybe that is like High School. I don't know. Well I was doing fine until the last two, important years when I became ill and was unable to take my final exams. It was from here that I went to college to do the arts foundation course. I got into the college entirely on my portfolio and interview as I had not got the qualifications to get a place. Unfortunately life can play some cruel tricks on you and as I was approaching the end of my course my mother got diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy and either radiotherapy or chemo....I can't remember. As she had recently divorced my alleged father (more about that another day) she was the bread winner of the family. When she became ill it basically meant I had to leave college to go out and earn some money. So that's what I did. For two years I didn't touch a camera or lift a paint brush. In my mind I had just decided that part of my life had ended and had to be replaced with something else. Of course that was nonsense but it was how I felt. I thought it had all been taken away from me. So I was at home looking after things and holding it all together. My mother did recover but it took a long time. Strangely I started work for a company doing more or less what I do now. Now I am self employed and have my own company though. I also got a company car which was a real bonus. The work had nothing to do with art at all though. Very much not remotely related to it and, indeed, quite opposite. 
The thing with art though is that if it is in you it will not be denied. I picked up the camera again and used to go up to London doing street and documentary photography but now it was just for fun and not for a qualification. It was quite liberating.  What really set me on my current path though was when I went to Dartmoor in South West England for the first time. I had never been to a wilderness like this and it grabbed hold of my heart and it has never let it go. Although I love Scotland and Skye and Iceland..........Dartmoor is where it all started for me. That is where my life began again. The beauty of the place woke something inside me and my love of nature and the outdoors has just kept on growing. My time outside and in remote, spectacular places has become essential to me and is a huge part of my current life. I cannot imagine going back to those days when I didn't use a camera. A time before my love of mountains. A time before my journeys to find myself alone in stunningly beautiful places. It lifted me out of a dark place and I have never looked back. I owe a lot to photography. It was the reason I used to get me out. The excuse if you like. But whatever the reason, it worked and now I just keep travelling and searching because now I can't stop. 
I'm sure that is quite enough for today and I thank you if you have got this far. I appreciate your taking an interest. 
Now it is time to feature your work. I think this might be a big feature so I do hope you will have time to look through it especially if you have read this far already. So here we are. Here are some amazing pieces of art from my favourites from the past few weeks. They are all made by artists who are driven, like I am, to create beauty in what ever form it comes. To find myself among so many like minded people is something I never thought would happen. I count myself truly blessed t know you all and it gives me the greatest pleasure to share your creations. So please, if you see something you like drop a little comment to the artists and make their day. Much love to you all. :heart:

to keep my clouds
so on my back
I carry the rain.
Their burdens press me
into dark ruins,
the vines that stretch
in my mind.
Touch the world
with whispering fingertips
to tell my story
with words that were
never mine.
Ghosts of the past
are burning the edge
of my vision
blurring memories
I never had.
The only light I see
is the little firefly
you once gave to me.

Goodness that was a lot of art to fit in. If you have made it this far I congratulate and I love you in equal measure. I honestly think this is the best art I have every featured and I hope you will find something to enjoy. I am stunned by the art I see here. You all inspire and amaze me. Sometimes the world can seem a dark and depressing place and then I come here and I see all this beauty, imagination, creativity, skill, love and passion. I am always re-invigorated by you and what you do. This is what life is about, not the dark but the light. You make light and I love it. 
Take care all of you. Spread the love and take care of each other. I look forward to the next time I have the privilege to enjoy your art. :heart: :hug:
