According to Buddha

It is not your passing thoughts or brilliant ideas so much as your plain everyday habits that control your life…Live simply. Don’t get caught in the machine of the world — it is too exacting. By the time you get what you are seeking your nerves are gone, the heart is damaged, and the bones are aching. Resolve to develop your spiritual powers more earnestly from now on. Learn the art of right living. If you have joy you have everything, so learn to be glad and contented…Have happiness now.

sing with me y’all:
one world, one world (we only got)
one world, one world (that’s all we got)
one world, one world
and something’s wrong with it (yeah)
something’s wrong with it (yeah)
something’s wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah
we only got
(one world, one world)
that’s all we got
(one world, one world)

Istanbul, Turkey ~Taksim Square ~  2013

  1. What an impressing atmosphere and a wonderful play of lights. Great photos. Funny, when I was there, I took a similar photos of a bunch of books. 😊😊😊👋

    • Markus…i had Istanbul in my hedy head…so i went back into my photographs…which i rarely do…but i thought about friends there…such a fascinating city built on two Continents…I think Istanbul is one of the greatest cities in the world…i would love to return and photograph now…also a side note…last week i heard some ‘photographers’ say again…’turn your lousy shots into b/w’…such a tiring line to me so i put up lousy colour shots but made them b/w because i think they are beautiful and moody…plus i had fun! smiles many over the pond 😀 😀 😀 now a coffee ^_^

  2. Love all the layers through this stunning set Hedy!

  3. may this world
    be singing
    in its coming
    and going 🙂

  4. I like how you used the vignette to lead the viewer into your compositions, Hedy. #1 and #3 are my favorites. Love #1 most. You capture the right moment. In 2014 I lived 4 months in a mobile home. Before we gave up everything we had. House, furniture, jobs, … and travelled for 4 months. Easy living at it’s best. 🙂 Reinhold

    • they were night colour shots…i played with them…so i appreciate you noting and saying your preferred ones…i’ve also connect to Alison and Don’s blog https://alisonanddon.com/ they are travellers of our world…i am thinking this is a wonderful plan…i love the creative pursuit…i also appreciate minimal living…i’m ready for a new chapter…:-D have a happy day Reinhold!

  5. Love the quote! It’s difficult to cope with all that is going on in this world, and living simply and working on our spirituality are two ways to try to cope. I’ve been working on these myself. Pics three and four are my favourites–human beings engaging in conversation with each other in person–no cell phones! This world feels like too much chaos–I feel we need to slow down and be real and present. This is such a timely post–and so perfect in black and white–lovely! Thank you! ❤

    • and i’m so sloppy Raven Wolfe…i’m a sensitive person…so much of what i hear/read is unfathomable to me…i don’t have telly but twitter and radio is enough…i feel all the distractions are evading bigger stories and issues…so i do my yoga, walk my mutts, photograph and try to limit news…and yes leaving my phone behind more and more often…i believe we goodness will always win…i also loved Istanbul…so many wonderful memories…now off to be in the sunshine ❤ compose a beautiful day ❤

      • I’m a sensitive person too–and I need to limit my exposure to news–I just feel too much and it’s overwhelming and even debilitating at times. I don’t have television either–you are the only other person I know of who doesn’t! 😀 Can’t say I miss it–critter time is better!

        • A yoga teacher gave me a book The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine Aron…it was a good read for me…I’m not into telly but I do watch Netflix and read some papers but like you I do prefer to be outside with my critters 😎☀️ have a beautiful week Raven Wolfe ☺

  6. Excellent, so accurate and a timely post to describe our world today. Thank you.

  7. If only we could cast off the yolk of the expectations of the world living simply would have bern so much easier. Stunning photos!

  8. I love your black and white photographs, Hedy. This is a very nice set. I appreciate the Buddha teaching too…

  9. Wonderful street photos. Why is it we learn the lesson of less is more when it is too late and we have an abundant of things all around us. Peaceful evening Hedy.

  10. Great pictures. Beautiful atmosphere.

  11. Great post and excellent photos.

  12. Such enthralling light in all of them… great job Hedy

  13. Great set of images here, Hedy. I’d love to go to Istanbul.

  14. really great pictures. like them a lot.
