There’s a buzz in the air…!

Every year when I see the first Bee of Spring I get really excited… Summer’s on the way!  After, what seems like the longest Winter ever, I was more happy than ever to see this wonderful busy Bee collecting pollen from the blossom…

I heard the buzz before I saw the bee...!

I heard the buzz before I saw the bee…

I hear it before I saw it...

Bumbling about his busy afternoon…

Such delicate wings...

perfect delicate wings…

My first bee of Spring... wonderful!

My first bee of Spring… wonderful!

    Such beautiful photos! I love that summery feeling that the bees bring with them. We already have lots of huge bumble bees visiting our garden – it’s wonderful to watch them.

    Wonderful photos. We have a ‘bee’ in Italy called a Calabrone. It is huge, black and sounds like an army helicopter. It is also not photogenic.

    I love these, they’re so beautiful and just emanate spring time 🙂 love bees. And honey. Hate wasps. Every time I think fondly of a passing bumbly bee, I can’t help following it with thoughts of irritated regret that a thing such as a wasp even exists….but big up the bees, and your photography 😀

Quotes that speak to my soul…

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes." - Ernst Haas

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by Dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
- Steve Jobs

“To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference”
― Robert Frank
