Martin of Tours was a soldier in the Roman army. He had a vision and one day as he came across a scarcely dressed beggar, he cut his cloak in half and gave it to the man.

“Lord, if your people still have need of my services, I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me continue to hold the battle line in defense of your camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength. I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command, I will fight beneath your banner.” (St. Martin of Tours, Bishop and Confessor, Patron Saint of Soldiers)

Another gorgeous day to experiment with some double exposure shots. How am I going so far?

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliott Erwitt

Pietá – Self death by Lee Yong Baek

The mold and the molded figure, or the producer and the produced. The mold is Virgin Mary holding the death molded figure, Jesus. The relationship between the producer and the produced insinuates a process of self-reproduction in which elements of biological gender are eliminated. It represent the contradiction of human existence and religious hypocrisy, the dark savageness of human society and civilisation…..

I saw this piece at the Venice biennale in 2011 and I really liked it so I thought I’d share it with you.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Venus rising from the Sea – Titian

The Goddess of love in Greek mythology. Venus or Aphrodite was born fully grown from the sea and landed on Paphos on Cyprus. It became the centre of the worship. She has been wafted ashore on the scallop shell you see beside her. It may have been a high relief by Antonio Lombardo, carved for Titian’s master, that gave Titian the inspiration for this painting.

Happy Easter!
