According to Buddha

The week should be allotted to work, amusement, and spiritual couture; five days for money-making, one day for rest and amusement and at least one day for introspection and inner realization.

all work and no play
makes jack a dull chap
when it comes to the crunch
it s too much i’ve got to stop
no pain and no gain it s driving me insane


The Financial DistrictToronto, ~ June 2017

  1. So I seem to be the first to like and comment today 🙂 (Sitting at my laptop waiting for the rain te stop so I can get out and make some pictures of a grey and windy Oostende in Belgium) Wonderful pictures you made Hedy. The variation between the buldings and the people in the streets is great. I also like the darkness of the street pics. Have a good day!

    • thanks Peter 😀 but i would imagine people carrying umbrellas…which can be cool street shots…i wrote you but somehow i must not posted the original thank you…i appreciate your comments…will go and visit to see Oostende with a coffee in the morning! 😀

  2. i have to get used to have 7 days of time for fun and introspection…

    • it’s hard but not hard…i’m happier to not having others control me…i always find the start of sept hardest…it’s like i should be starting the term…but now i’m just happy to have my time to pursue things that matter too me…you’ll love it! i post this american piece but i think there is much to think about…how we define work…and 60-70 hour work weeks…i’m off to happy hips yoga now! hugs Inge xo

  3. impressing b/w, Hedy! …the one (#3) where you can only see the silhouette of someone crossing the street ist stunning. wow many smiles over the pond 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. black and white does it right, solemn and sweet.
    the message is clear. I’m listening

    • thank you dear Eddie…i appreciate you saying…i thought about it a lot…i think when work is fun and has meaning it is enjoyable…i know you know…sending you joy for a happy sunday! 😀

  5. Wow, what a great photos Hedy! Congratulations, Zsolt

  6. Wonderful black and white set, Hedy. Terrific building patterns and street shots, especially the subtle light on the faces against the silhouetted buildings.

  7. Great photographs! Love Bach!

  8. street muzak
    to my ears 🙂

  9. I like it 😊

  10. Wonderful Hedy!

  11. Great shots! I really like the intense contrasts!

    • thank you kindly Ulf i appreciate you saying…i’m am practicing and enjoy seeing this way too…so much fun for me! compose a happy day ~ smiles hedy

  12. Nice pictures. Beautiful black and white.

  13. I never know what you’re going to do next, and everything you do, you do well. I like the alternating high contrast images. I wonder where the Buddha quotes come from? Not quite like any Buddha quotes I’ve ever read! 😉

    • well i’m not a Buddhist…so there may be some sloppiness attached or missing on posts i’ve created…however, for the past months i’ve been re-reading Autobiography of a Yogi Paramhansa Yogananda…sometimes when i’m reading the words or pages of ‘all’ Buddhas (or so i think they are) i say to myself that’s incredible, beyond belief or unbelievable…so i linger over the words…let them flow by or maybe some stick or ignore them…i don’t know…usually it’s just my thought in that moment…i do try to tie the quote to the images and song…which i make in my hedy head… 😀 photography seems like yoga to me…so much to explore and learn in the body of knowledge…it’s all practice ~ smiles hedy 😀

  14. The conversation with olive & the Aeon article are interesting…having recently left a grueling, over 40 hr/wk job with many on call hours. Spitting out the Koolaid now…

  15. Fantastic photos, Hedy!
    They accompany the song by Van Morrison, perfectly.

  16. Interesting to observe the artificial environment of the financial district, the towers of image and glass, the angles snapping into space that house the workings of our virtual world-machine… And all of the people down below tucked in shadow. Beautiful, honest work Hedy.


    • yes the pace…sad(ish) tense faces…so many ppl on their phones talking business…it’s a different energy on these streets…but i appreciated the chance to try more high contrast b/w…i need practice but it was fun! i appreciate your comment Michael 😀 have a beautiful day ~ peace hedy and of course a smile 😀 or 2 😉

  17. I saw the money-making but not the rest. 🙂
