:To The Moon Alice: Sea of Love













To The Moon Alice
September 2010



























Sea of Love




The Sea and the Moon inextricably linked in a duel for my affection.. Emotional bodies that tug at my heartstrings, visually and metaphysically. And when the moon is full, the boundaries of my world soften, reality blurs and my mind takes a vacation to imaginary worlds wheres one's woes are left at checkin and wistful dreams are provided with room service. These images were intended for my next travel post... Phuket and The Andaman Sea... As luck would have it, the moon has taken a vacation too. He's travelling first class which leaves me in economy with no glimpse of his celebrity hidden behind the curtain that divides our realities.. Instead I'll bring you the product of my imagination..


... A full topaz moon shining over The Andaman Sea ...














September Moon Notes:
Moon Names: Harvest, Corn or Barley Moon
Moon was full at 19:18 Sept 23 [Sydney Time]

Gorgeous gorgeous, OH, these are gorgeous! It is like dreamy, lovely, turquoise love ... sigh ... I love it. And funny aside - when I stared going through the photos, I thought - this post should be called Sea of Love! So beautifully executed. I am going right back to look again. And again.

FILIGREE MOON said...

Julie, these images are fascinating! And taken with a disposable camera?!? Amazing manipulation of images, and your prose is divine. Have you ever captured a filigree moon? ;-) Thank you for sharing these beautiful studies. ~ Angela

Those little disposables can be worth their weight in gold. I'm loving what you accomplished here; lovely colourways, & I can almost see brushstrokes, tho I know there are none.

So sorry our friend hid from you... perhaps she'll be kinder to me tonite.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Breathtaking! The song Sea of Love is pretty cool too, as well as the movie (a thriller that has nothing to do with the sea though).

Zuzu said...

LOVE the painterly affects in your photos, Julie!!!

Beatnheart said...

ok ya know what?? I really have to have one of these!!! When are you going to start selling your work. I love these shots Julie and on a disposable camera...youse za...

Blondie's Journal said...

Giulia said...

Of course, they are beautiful (& yes, painterly). As always. We were upside down moon watching (& Jupiter, too!) late last night & were thinking of you here. ('We' meaning Julie, too. I'm sure that's what she was thinking.)

xoxo

Pinecone Camp said...

Wow. These images are so beautiful Julie! You're a brilliant photog!

simon said...

well- I can tell you a funny story about the moon ( If I have not already done so)- One night I was driving my car and I looked up and there was a full moon and coloured a brilliant blue! I could not believe it.. I said "geez look at that!" it must only happen "once in a blue moon" So I skidded to a halt, scrambled for my camera.... only to realise I was looking at the moon through the blue window tint at the top of the windscreen!!!

Needless to say I was grateful there were no witnesses to my utter stupidity!! ahaha!

have a great weekend!

Hi Julie,
We are starting the autumn time and I looooove to
see your stunning images,
Hugs and HAPPY WEEKEND
Cecilia

sacredcheryl said...

Love the way you use those colors...magical !

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

Your photography makes me want to run to beach and view that big old moon. When we got back it was glowing with that ring it gets when it's going to get cold...at least that's what I think it means.
You've created breathtaking paintings with your editing. You must really be enjoying getting PS back.
I think I'm ready for an upgrade myself!

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Hey Maya
Yes I know the song and the movie well.. although I think the movie title is quite apt.... a play on the emotional aspect... Thanks xxx Julie

Jacqueline said...

Ooooo Julie,
You are taking me back to my holiday which was only in August, I know, but it seems an age away now !!
Beautiful photographs and, I don't know why but they remind me of 'The Owl and The Pussycat' !!
I think that I can just see their beautiful pea green boat sailing round that last headland ! XXXX

hey julie - your images have an almost 50's glean too them - not sure what says that to me - but they are great, wonderful solarisation style too.

The Stylish House said...

Julie,
I would say this is the perfect start to my weekend! Life is so much sweeter with Room Service.
I will be looking forward to traveling with you to beautiful Phucket. I had the pleasure of spending Christmas there the year before the tsunami hit.

Susan Erickson said...

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Amazing photography x 1000. Were they really shot on a disposable camera? Julie you've out done yourself once again. I saw the full moon here last night & now I think of you!

Wishing you a lovely Sunday and a great new week Julie xo

nerines said...

Your pictures are beautiful!!! I feel the same way as Killiecrankie, especially that last one...I love the nostalgia in your work and the way you write, beautiful insight:) xo

Chatelaine said...

Oh those palm trees, so lush. I feel like I am on a virtual tropical vacation.

Beautiful photo art Julie.

Beach Vintage said...

I agree. Living on the water I see the connection almost every day. PS: Hamilton Island was amazing, you must go!

Shaz said...

Hi Julie, what a beautiful post both the words and the photography. There is something very special about the water - I never live more than 5 minutes away from it and the moon - well I am just starting to understand and appreciate it's relevance and beauty

The Moerks said...

I cannot believe you made these fabulous images from a disposable camera. Very clever indeed!

mise said...

These are among your most beautiful images and their washed-out look makes me feel old. Not old in a bad way but old in a chic and sixties way, full of anecdotes about famous people I've known and unspoilt holidays.

(I'm tailoring a very senior company role especially for you...)

J said...

Come with me my love to the sea the sea of love.......stunning just dreamy and magical I am feeling that 40's 50'a vibe...and the paint like quality....hope you have a lovely week, cheers katherine

Princesa Nadie said...

Dear Ruby

Hugs

Ange said...

Ah Julie, I travel with you to far off lands, and am spoilt with a full moon as well. My internet connection is finally working too and at last I can take off with you more often. Missed you on the 25th. Hope the moon and life is spoiling you greatly.
Love

theoldboathouse said...

Hey Julie, I am glad you spied my little wooden ferry. It was a reminder for me of my last trip to Sydney, now many years ago, my lovely friend I went with got a tad sick on the manly ferry and I thought it was very funny to get this little wooden ferry when I saw it at the rocks markets as a tease and it is just so cute! Wouldn't it be lovely if I could visit again and we could chat in person, cheers Katherine xx

michelle said...

These are gorgeous Julie! To be in a place to see this would be heavenly!

beachcomber said...

Shellbelle said...

Oh, I'm so happy you posted this one today. It is one that I missed while I was in the throes of all those moves. The full moon, the sea and swaying palms? Doesn't get much better than that!
