Stillness & Sweet Golden Honey. ~ A Photographic Essay by Robert Sturman.

Via on Jun 13, 2012

Mastery is a Quiet Path

Building a bridge between

Everything

and our own

Stillness.

Nothing outside of ourselves can be taken too seriously.

It is all a metaphor for the work being done within.

In our stillness, we cultivate golden honey

to sweeten up our perceptions,

enjoy our days,

and spread it all over the world.

    Good theme. I would say, though, that you largely used the same settings and stagings that you employed earlier with the woman? That said, I found Number 2 stood out. As I have told you before, and it's a purely personal aesthetic, I like it when your figures seem to blend in with the earth, and appear almost as an extension of Her – rather than seeming to use Her as staging area or for contrast. That's why I think number 2 stands out even more than the other jetty shot, which is good too. Personal preference. He's almost another rock formation, and his blue-black coloring more subtly meshes with the blue-black of water and land. Blessings! Who knows, tomorrow I will see it differently…

    It's nice to see a yoga model who can inspire people who is not a thin, beautiful young woman for a change. Of course, nothing wrong (at all) with such women – but it is important to people who do not for whatever reasons fit that description to see themselves represented in yoga visually as well.
