Lustre

Lustre – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I have named this photograph “Lustre” for that is the French word for Chandelier. This photograph was taken in the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. I have offset the chandelier from the light coming in through the windows for effect.

The Hall of Mirrors is absolutely glorious. It is absolutely decadent in its presentation filled with chandeliers, crystal, gold work and painted ceilings of artwork. It just “breathes” of another time and space where life was very different for the rich and famous.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

I Am Surrounded

I Am Surrounded – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click image to see the bigger picture.

Yup, you see me. I am the window looking outwards or perhaps, you are looking inside of me. I am surrounded by ivy growing all around me. To the North, South, East and West of my centre, are wonderful plants growing up the brick walls.

Blue on Blue

Blue on Blue – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click image to see entire photograph.

This image is just about perfect in the way there are beautiful hues of blue reflecting off the whale fluke, the water, the sky and the mountains behind it all.

It is also very enticing to see the sparkling and shimmering light off the surface of the waters.

I can see other sailboats off in the distance perhaps fishing or perhaps sightseeing as we were.

Crown of Favour

Crown of Favour– Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This is a photograph I took of the tower of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

I think of Joel Osteen who speaks of having a “Crown of Favour” if you believe in God. We are all children of God and as we follow the Holy Spirit, Allah, Jehovah, Buddha, Lord, Yahweh, Brahman, Universal Life Force or whatever God Force you may believe in with good intentions, many good things will happen to and for us.

May you have a blessed New Year of 2022 today.

Son of God

Son of God – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Many years ago, someone had created a beautiful sand statue of Jesus by the oceanside in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is incredible in its detail and refinement in sculpture.

Tonight, is the eve of Christmas and we await the remembrance and celebration of Our Lord Jesus tonight and always.

Jesus was an incredible member of humankind who was a great spiritual teacher to many of us on Earth. We are sons and daughters of God.

Wandering Dude

Wandering Dude

I spent the very last day possible at the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park. I literally stayed until they closed up not only for the day but also the life of the conservatory to the public. Why? Because I have very fond memories from many years of visiting when we or I used to go there and enjoy the lush trees, plants and flowers. I would particularly go in winter time to get a break from the white, blustery snow and see beautiful greenery in the warm and humid environment. 

Some of my fondest photographs are of my immediate and extended family, some of whom, are no longer with us in physical form, and they graced their presence on this Earth by being in the conservatory. Back in the day, there were black and white photographs that were developed with film and you had to wait a very long period of time for them to be developed in the lab before seeing what you had accomplished with your camera. 

This is a photograph I took of a “Wandering Dude” or Tradescantia zebrina or Inch Plant amongst the brick work. It is a houseplant that has trailing vines and is often used in hanging baskets.

Take-Off

Take-Off

This is an photographic image near Vancouver, British Columbia as we take off from its Airport at Richmond, BC or better known as YVR. You can see the coastal mountain ranges and the waters of the Pacific Ocean as Richmond is actually a series of islands nestled together in the mouth of the Fraser River. On the right hand side, you can see a wee, little freighter out in the water from that level. We were ascending into the sky onwards and upwards after a good visit on the West Coast.  

I had enjoyed our stay there and will miss my previous province of residence. I will miss British California, as we affectionately call it. 

According to Wikipedia, “Vancouver International Airport is an international airport in Richmond, British Columbia. It is located 12 km from Downtown Vancouver. It is the second busiest airport in Canada by aircraft movements and passengers, behind Toronto Pearson International Airport.”

Sundown

Sundown

This was a beautiful evening in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The sun was setting in the west across the Pacific Ocean. The sky is a gorgeous and rich indigo blue that turns towards a dark, black hue. 

I captured the edge of one of the palapas as a silhouette and the waves coming onto the shoreline. I do believe there is a star in the hemisphere.

Two Tiny Turtles

Two Tiny Turtles

These two turtles are not the smallest I have ever seen. They were actually approximately 6 to 9 inches in length but relative to tortoises, they are tiny. They were climbing all over each other. I have made this image into black and white because I like seeing the textures and designs of the turtle shells. I also like the way the light plays in the picture. I took this image in Mexico. 

According to Wikipedia, “Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines. They are characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. “Turtle” may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling Testudines. Testudines includes both extant and extinct species.”

I really like the photograph and added a stained glass effect to it. It is not an ordinary flower but a special one found at Hotel Beatus in Cambrai, France where I found it outside the rooms in the adjoining patios. Philippe Gorczynski found and made a museum around a World War I British tank, Deborah, the Iron Lady, near Flesquieres.
