The Wizardry is that all the images in Imagery To Life come to life, just like the scene above that is the living scene above that in the circle. All to bring out the awe and wonder of nature and life around us. This can be for kid or for the kid in all of us. Think here especially of a health challenged kid who can't easily get out to experience scenes like this. We take the experience to all who see this.

Go ahead and download the app and take your phone or iPad for a drive through the images on this site and experience the magic!

“As we get older we often forget what it is like to view the world through the eyes of child. There are the simple moments of wonder and joy, and all of the first time experiences life has to offer. There is something as simple as being in the forest or on the beach. Tim Blake offers these experiences to children who may be in a hospital or healing at home. There is a simple reminder here to adults, to get down on one knee, and take a moment to view the world from a child’s perspective. And it is a reminder to a child that is going through a health challenge that the beauty life has to offer is all around them, all of the time. And perhaps, most importantly, it is inside of each of us, all of the time. Great job Tim! This is a great gift to offer the world.”


“This wonderful book creates a virtual connection with nature, allowing us all to experience the beauty of nature.  This is a gift, especially for children and adults with health challenges, who are unable to go out and directly experience the beauty of the natural world.  Providing this experience to them certainly aligns with the Rotarian vision of supporting humanitarian efforts in our community.”

Richard Goldstein - Director, for Rotary Club of Livermore Valley 

“Bringing us into the world is God’s job. Bringing the world to sick kids is our job. This book makes our job a lot easier!”

Jon Polaha - member of the Woodside Rotary Club

“Life is beautiful, pictures make beautiful memories, and bring the stories alive. Live, laugh, play & enjoy every moment.”

Ruth & Perry Mistry - Realtors

“This book touches the emotional chord of appreciation for the stunning beauty of the scenes shown here to remind us of the gift of nature, and connects all of us to the wisdom of the ages with the notable quotes contained here for all to reaffirm our connection with all of humanity. This is a brilliant work to put into the young hands of our future.”

Lindsey Williams - Business professional, life coach and author
