Sometimes , when out exploring this wonderful World, you happen upon some unique and almost forgotten places.
Places still lived on, or in, but a shadow of what they used to be. Sometimes as in this case , the shadow gets bigger, or should that be taller!
whilst out on a photography project , I saw this old Coconut plantation, dotted with Banana trees too, and went for a walk of serene calmness and natural beauty. A oasis of green in the busy town.
So as part of my ongoing self managing therapy, I photograph, a lot, and I have a lot of images from that. Some i make into what I hope are useful , “this is a nice place to visit and this is what you will see” slideshows on YouTube.
Then there are these, peaceful moments which I post for people who like me have worked out that we all need 5 minutes of the day just to stop and think of nothing else in this world, but to stop! and give our minds just a break at least once a day from all the things that push us too hard, Life! I weave them into these peaceful moments using images and appropriate music to help the mind switch off from the rest of the World.
I hope you find them as helpful as I do….
Rawai, is one of my favourite places on the whole Island so far. I often come down here late afternoon, or the weekends. A very short drive takes me to one of the most unspoilt popular beach areas, not for swimming so much, but when the tide is out popular for people to explore the small pools and watch the crabs!
My relaxing place for you…
Since I have moved to the Island of Phuket, I have found that not only are the people calmer, but so am I. I love nothing more than getting down to the nearest body of water, be it Cape Panwa or Rawai. I hope you enjoy and relax with the scenes here.
So another peaceful moment from the small room.
Today brought to you from the Island of Koh Mook in Thailand, Somewhere I loved so much when I stayed and had such amazing uplifting experience, it was then I think I realised there was more to life.
I am an avid shell seeker when on beaches; I always put them back, but photograph them before leaving. My thoughts are that shells are a little like humans, “how so?” I may hear you ask.
Well like us they come in all different shapes and sizes, all colours and styles. They have their imperfections, just like we do… They can be discarded when the creature inside them is dead and become the continuing part of the Earth. They are a vessel in which some living creature may survive. Maybe you will look at shells a little differently from now on, after all, is that not what all of us are? Shells?
Peaceful Moments #16
Flowers from the beautiful Island of Koh Lanta
I know I haven’t produced a “peaceful moment” for a little while, that’s because the ones I produce are all my own images and sometimes I have to wait for opportunities to harvest new images.
This one is a mixture of flora from Southern Thailand, during the holidays I took these images for the video that I hope you will find a “Peaceful moment” in.
From the Southern shores of Thailand, Pak Meng and the Island of Koh Lanta
