Live curious

“Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.” ~ John Muir The quote “Live curious” is one of National Geographic’s catchy slogans and shirt designs. This particular image was shot with an Olympus micro 4/3 camera, my toy lens and its unique features. Read more about my magic lens here.

My magic lens

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours”. ~ Ayn Rand, Russian-born American Author If you think the swirly bokeh (blurred background for the non-photographers) on my image is way cool, wait till you see the other photos I took with my toy lens.  I ordered it on my birthday (January), was shipped within 24 hours, and I got to play with the stuff that most lomographers are similarly having a blast with.
