I have once again taken the easy way out on this challenge. My photo is of the time between day and night. Its that awesome time of day when details get muted and there is a feeling of mystery as nighttime arrives. For a photographer, the challenge is to catch that remaining light of day while using the oncoming darkness to enhance the feeling of the scene. One of the ways to capture this transition is the use of silhouettes against the fading light. This photo was taken in the Northern Serengeti as we were rushing back to camp as we had to be out of the park by “sundown”. I saw this giraffe framed against the color of the sunset and asked our guide to stop just long enough to catch this quick shot. I hope this captures the transition between day and night and also the serenity…

I know I have posted this picture before, but I think it represents the word ‘between’ well.
This picture was taken on a school trip I took the year 6s on. And this is two boys having a moment together.

I don’t have any answers, not the definitive big answers to the big
questions. I just have more questions. But my new questions might
inspire you to ask some of your own.
I’m not enlightened; I can make no claim to such a thing being sometimes so lost in my own internal darkness that I extinguish my own small light while thrashing around. But sometimes that tiny pearl of light might be enough to guide a soul home.
I’m not awakened; I live in that shadowy penumbra of the world between worlds, caught in the trailing edge of dreams. But sometimes we may be dreaming the same dream and can compare notes.
I’m not a guru and I don’t want disciples or followers. But…

“If life was a dream, then dying must be the moment when you woke up.
It was so simple it must be true. You died, the dream was over, you woke up.
That’s what people meant when they talked about going to heaven.
It was like waking up.”
We wake up on the morning after living in a fluid Universe of flowing images we call dreams, and believe we have come back in to ourselves, when it’s the other way around, we abandon the Self in order to descend to our material existence. It’s true those fluid images can be vague and confusing on waking up, but that is due to our lack of preparedness, or the contamination our spiritually polluted consciousness impede a more luminous dreaming were reality, is more impressive than our so call reality.
