According to Buddha

Thoughts are universally and not individually rooted; a truth cannot be created, but only perceived. Any erroneous thought of wo/man is a result of an imperfection, large or small, in his/her discernment. The goal of yoga science is to calm the mind, that without distortion it may hear the infallible counsel of the Inner Voice.

y tú te vas, jugando a enamorar
todas las ilusiones vagabundas que se dejan alcanzar
y no verás, que lo que yo te ofrezco
es algo incondicional


Lisbon LX FACTORY in the Alcântara district Lisboa ~ April 2018

  1. Amen, Aum, Om, peace.

  2. I love your moody sepia-toned series, Hedy. Wise words indeed, both in the Buddha’s words and the lyrics.

  3. truly inspiring, hedy! always amazing color tones in your images. happy days. reinhold

    • humble thank you Reinhold…and now LR has some new tabs and sliders…I enjoy playing with them…also the colours in Portugal are so different than here in Alberta….smiles from rainy etown ~ hedy ☺️💫

  4. ‘truth cannot be created, but only perceived’
    there is really nothing else I can add to that

  5. liking this expression
    way 🙂

  6. Oh, that first picture. Wow! I realize yours is mostly a horizontal format here, but if you ever print it, crop the sides way in and make it a deep vertical. Print it about 4 feet deep, mount, it frame and hang it. The thing will fly off the wall and hit the viewer in the brain.

    • humble thank you Ray…and yes I don’t find my eye works the same in portrait framing…I need to practice that more…just doesn’t feel the same as landscape…but I can see what you’ve said here…appreciate your teachings 🤓 thank you kindly ☺️💫

      • Of course it’s different. You have that beaten into you by old fashioned picture editors who would say something like, “If you want a hope in hell of ever being on the cover of (xyz) magazine, you’d better start working vertically.”

        I miss those days. When picture editing was about a human mentor, not a piece of software.

        • not sure I completely understand the photography discourses, at times Ray…was picture editing about a human mentor…as in the darkroom post editing? it is a different visual world for sure…I know I’ve wondered about ‘what is a pure photograph’?…visuality for me is a feeling thing…and sound 🤓

          • A picture editor was human being. He/she helped shaped your assignment, your work with whatever publication and your career. We didn’t domuch post production. If, like I did, we worked in a wet darkroom, We made the very best picture we could without overdoing things. If we worked in color all the post production was done in the field, using filters, lighting and whatever we needed to make the picture because there were no second chances.

          • It sounds like a lot of fun too…I also know stories of photographers and their lost images….such different processes both require patience and time to strive for strong works….your narrative is always fascinating Ray I think it’s time for a book….smiles Hedy 🤓☺️

          • Too many books already. 🙂 It was fun and very hard work. To make sure we actually made the picture, people like me would shoot 200-400 rolls of film on an assignment.

          • Oh, pure photography? I suppose these days it means doing everything in camera, with no post production help. Even though I really do miss the days I described, pure photography is sort of outmoded by technology.

          • I used a point and shoot for snaps but not much film experience other than in high school back in the 70’s so I’m pretty much a digital learner…I also appreciate traditional works and contemporary works…I mostly want to see growth in my works…I enjoy all of the aspects of photography I have not done much printing either…lots to learn ☺️🤓 hope you are having a fine day Ray 😀

          • Now that I seem to be able to see again, the day should be good. I’m still plumbing my archives so that what’s being published on Storyteller.

            The one thing I know about digital capture and mass storage is this. You really need to spot check your files every year. Those ones and zeros are fairly fragile, unlike film. I have 50 year old film that I haven’t looked at in years. I know it’s just fine.

          • Okay good to know Ray thank you!

  7. excellent photography

  8. Another really good series, Hedy, and that first photo – wow. Are those lights up top? I like the way the flyer-wrapped pole, the people in the distance and the light scribbles all interact. 🙂 🙂

    • thank you Kindly Lynn…appreciated…it was a grateful surprise…walked through that first foto and a whole life existed…super cool hippie kind of zone…lovely foods too ☺️💫 smiles hedy

  9. love the bridge

  10. Wonderful photos Hedy … what about that guy’s smile! Fabulous …

  11. Always pleasant to read your posts in a sequence. Different skies. Different lights.
    Très agréable. Dankje
    (Got your mail back. Phd, hmmm? Compliments Doctor!)

    • Yes I’m a geek 😜🤓☺️ smiles you!

      • I doubt that very much. 🙂
        (What do you teach? I may have asked before…)

        • 😜😉😜 I taught art education to primary and secondary undergraduates in the faculty of education and I also taught qualitative research methods at the graduate level…now I’m an adjunct professor ☺️ and the word adjunct means “not necessary” I still stay in relation with graduate students but no more teaching I’m attempting to put my academic background into my visual research background to do photo essays…and do meaningful work 🤓🤗

          • Art education as in Art history? Wow. Love that. Now “qualitative research”? You don’t say. I was a market researcher for years and years. And “Quali” was an important tool of course. Maybe 30-35% of my business. Nice. (I guess I’m and adjunct researcher now) 🙂
            Now I understand more about your photo essays. And meaningful work. Tot z. Hedy.

          • Yes some art history and art processes and art making…cheers adjunct researcher…it will always be our narrative threads which shapes how I see the world….smiles Brian 💫☺️🤓
