That’s abstract!

Wow! Yesterday Mindful Photos achieved the highest viewing figures it’s had since I started the blog two years ago – Three Hundred and Eight views by Six P.M. and Twenty “likes”! Thanks for all the interest 🙂


I’ve started to add gallery pages at the top of the website. Do have a look. There are pictures that haven’t made it into the blog yet. I hope you enjoy them.


Twenty four months ago It seemed a fairly abstract idea to use my love of photography to integrate my fifteen year meditation practice into daily life – and to blog about the experience.

Then along came a big crisis that none of us ever expect to happen: I was diagnosed with PLS motor neurone disease. Now it’s an integral part of nurturing the pleasurable for me – a tool in my “Mindfulness Tool Kit” that’s keeping me physically and mentally healthy.

I thought I’d post some abstract photographs to celebrate my abstract idea of 2 years ago. They were taken in Venice again, where if you keep your eyes and senses open there are all sorts of wonderful shapes and nooks and crannies to explore. Enjoy 🙂

All of my Venice pictures were taken using two Olympus mirrorless cameras – an OMD EM1 with 12-40mm f2.8 lens and OMD EM5 with Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8. A fantastic light weight combination for travel photography.

I hope you have enjoyed them.
