Copyright Notice

If you ever want a copy any of my photographs/poetry/writing anywhere in my social media to put on your wall or to view outside of this space, in classrooms anywhere, please let me know and I’ll give you an opportunity to purchase it. All funds raised go to supporting my creative work. This applies to all of my work.

To protect copyright I will be endeavoring to put less work out there, lower resolution, watermarks etc. It may seem futile, but it is always good to attribute and respect any work you come across online. I will be working on some poetry/photographic works in the future. And to anyone who hasn’t done this in the past, amnesty, perhaps you didn’t realise this wasn’t a fair thing to do.

Why not pay me something now, or support Magic Fish Dreaming, then I can keep making more work. I love to share work and build an audience and all of that, but sometimes people without thinking just print and share perhaps not realising this is going beyond admiring on a wall.

Above is a slide show of my contributions to the site over the last three years. If you visit the site you can read the quotations that were placed with them.

Here are just a few:

“Know ye that the world is like unto a mirage which the thirsty one thinks to be water; its water is a vapor; its mercy a difficulty; its repose hardship and ordeal; leave it to its people and turn unto the Kingdom of your Lord the Merciful.”
-Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith

“O banished and faithful friend! Quench the thirst of heedlessness with the sanctified waters of My grace, and chase the gloom of remoteness through the morning-light of My Divine presence.”

Mt Tamborine

Walking through the green on Mt Tamborine.

We did our first walk at Mt Tamborine – the Curtis Falls in the Joalah section.

There are many more to do.

We will be back.

We did manage to do a couple more things whilst up there, which I will do a post about sometime soon.

Here though are some memories of green.

We didn’t see any lyre birds or glow worms.

I’d love to see those sometime!

Two Bright Orbs: Shining the Light of Love

When attending celebrations where unity in diversity is not just in words but in action I feel hope for the future of Australia and the World.

I was so happy that my family were able to experience the inspiring coming together of the diversity of the human family and community into one larger family at the wedding of Shannon and Sarah.

I was not an official photographer, just a friend, caught up like all of us were, in the connections made between so many cultures and religions that day.

Here is the Sudanese Welcoming Party who called the Bride into her Wedding.

These are special moments of connection, where two families become one, followed by an image of a lovely lady who said an Islamic prayer for the ceremony.

Some of the ceremony includes a Baha’i prayer, a song, and some words from the Celebrant.

Shannon’s mother reads a prayer.

Divine Love in the Holy Tree

Mt Lamington National Park, Queensland

 

“O God, my God! Praise be unto Thee for kindling the fire of divine love in the Holy Tree on the summit of the loftiest mount: that Tree which is ‘neither of the east nor of the west,’ that fire which blazed out till the flame of it soared upward to the Concourse on high, and from it those realities caught the light of guidance…”

No Geometry

Brisbane, (c) Image June Perkins

The rain itself hath no geometry, no limits, no form, but it taketh on one form or another, according to the restrictions of its vessel. In the same way, the Holy Essence of the Lord God is boundless, immeasurable, but His graces and splendours become finite in the creatures…
