Peace of mind

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
Dada Vaswani

Water is always a support or a healing thing apart from, you know, love or peace of mind.

“I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of a place could be photographed.”
— Annie Leibovitz

“It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.”
— James Lalropui Keivom

What is your aim?

A few hot days. > 30° C / 90° F. No rain.
The rain started last night. At 2 am. It rained the whole night.
When I got out this morning to shoot this image I was wet within minutes. Not because it was still raining. No… the rain had stopped. But humidity was extremely high.
I had to convince myself that it was okay to get wet feet and wet clothes. Next time I see Michelangelo I will have a word with him.

Happy days. Reinhold

Save time in an image…

If I could save time in a bottle… 10 seconds were enough to save this time in an image.
Already pretty cold in the morning. Fog is slowly creeping through the landscape. I guess autumn is coming. Hurra. The “green” time is over.
It is time to take the dust of my gear, get my rucksack and head out of the door. Catching time.

Happy days. Reinhold

Don’t believe what you see…

Revised version after comments

Added more sky on Photoshop to the top image. More breathing space for the poles.
Stopped letters “Area 51” from fighting against the poles. Added “51” to the sign in the bottom left corner.
Now the UFO is flying towards the car.
Added a little bit of blurred, red color to the breaking lights of the car.
Added a bit of fog/smoke around the space ship.
Cleaned the image up from distracting objects.
The road starts as a leading line in the bottom right corner.
Changed the font of the quote.
Changed the crop to 5:4.

You can find the “old” version at the end of the post.

Special thanks to Sherry and Vicki for their comments.

I created 2 versions of this poster. Which one do you like best?

Have a great weekend and happy days. Reinhold
