once our currents still

Once the currents still,

we unfold our curled fingers

and look straight ahead.

Daisy, Julia Margaret Cameron

  1. Thanks for sharing the link to Rebecca’s blog. I hadn’t known about her. She does lovely work. I’d like to subscribe by email, but I dont’ see a way on her site to do that. Do you think I’m missing something? I know I can subscribe to the RSS feed, but I like filtering blog updates via email–who knows why.

  2. Hmmm. I don’t see it either. I just have her saved to my favorites ~ which is how I read my blogs…I don’t do it to email or RSS. So 2006, I know! 😉

  3. Lovely words and one has to be forward looking!! Beautiful and a soft photograph of a gorgeous girl who I fail to identify!!

    Julia Margaret Cameron was a famous photographer and was born in Calcutta here (now kolkatta) and died in Ceylon (Sri Lanka now) also in this region!! It is sad that almost none of Cameron’s work from India survives.

    With best Wishes!!
    Have a great weekend!!

  4. I totally adored reaing about Julia Margaret Cameron and her different approach to photography. I only wish there were more of her beautiful photographs in the gallery to view. Thanks for bringing her to your readers’ attention!
