Musings about ‘Saying Goodbye’

Saying Goodbye can be like saying’ till we meet again’

Saying Goodbye can be between friends

Saying Goodbye can be a relief

Goodbye can be painful

Goodbye  can be forever:

NEVER to be repeated




Below a series of  reflections on various ‘goodbyes’

    • Thank you, Philip so much for your sensitive observations. ‘Goodbye’ was indeed a goodbye forever more.. He was my son who died last year.
      I am so grateful that I am able to express the emotions of this loss, a loss like no other, through my photography.


  1. Excellent photographs, Paula, how I would like to emulate them! By coincidence, I’m just writing a post about the use of pure blacks and whites in images, and that sky in your top offering is just the thing – its holding my attention down onto the drama and sadness below and suggesting that, apart from the brief brightness you’ve pictured, there is only darkness.

    “We said our goodbyes” is poignant; I love the composition and lighting in “And into the night” (and that brolly adds so much); and your processing in “Goodbye kisses” is wonderful.

    Are these all candid shots or do you use models? And if candid, are you simply unobtrusive – or very quick??? Adrian

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
