I love the pic's. I still say try and get some published. Between your pic's and writing, it is only a matter of time before you are published somewhere! :) I wish I had as much artistic talent as you! Have a great evening. I am off shortly from job #1 to go to job #2. But it is not too bad only 3 nights a week, and I still have weekends off. So, no complaints! :)

alley cat view is wonderfully urban. love it. and contemplating real joy:rebirth is groovy. how did you get the photo to have that look? the title reminds me of a song called "new life" by south african guitarist jonathan butler. the song inspires and celebrates what happens when we open our minds, let go of the past, and walk through elegba's door, face our fears, and courageously step into a new joy called rebirth. yeah man, i feel that photo. tyou for sharing and giving me something to flow on this afternoon as i take a break by checking out your photos. always love to stop through and see what's cooking in your creative gumbo of a kitchen. keep stirring your pot...peace in, ananda ... a very sleepy former energizer bunny... ps: last night i discovered that when you put your pjs on at 7pm and pull the covers over your eyes by 7:03pm, you are as tired as the man in your metro picture. i think early evening bedtimes are God's ways of saying you need to rest your ass so lay down soulsista. and that i did. much laughs and light to you. :)

ananda-
you're making me hungry with those references to gumbo and stirring. :)I'm glad that you can feel the photos. I adjusted the image of rebirth with my FinePix image mixer. Yes, get your rest sista. I know that I need mine.
