There are things in this world which we take for granted as being delicate. There are the clouds in the sky which are diaphanous looking on a beautiful sunny day. Yet when the skies become angry the clouds can turn dark and brooding, no longer looking like the delicate wisp of cotton balls in the sky.
Beautiful geese roams the river banks in Amsterdam. Their “oh so white” downy feathers bring to mind, being wrapped in down comforters, on cozy days and nights. However, nature has a resiliency that is endowed for the survival of the fittest. Do not underestimate a goose’s delicate form, for it’s beak can be a dangerous weapon.
Flowers tend to be most on a person’s mind when the word delicate pops ups. Yet year after year, season after season, flowers will grow wildly along the country side without help from any human hands.
My most favorite of delicate things…dolls. Their pretty silky hair and cute smallness lends to the perfection of the delicate of looks. Yet, dolls can last for many years, preserving our memories of childhood within it’s very doll soul.
This weeks photo challenge looks to be one where many perspectives will be in place. I find it fun to see how people react to different photos. Some see art, hope, life, or sometimes there is an instant connection. What do you see in my photos of renewal? Speak out and let’s hear your voice.
“Things are always better in the morning.” ― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. —John Lennon
Geometry the building blocks of life. I see it everywhere especially in the architecture of buildings. Angles, circles, points, and lines (intersecting, perpendicular-man these lines can get crazy) are really nothing alone. But together they can become something magnificent. Here are some magnificent examples of geometry.
Livorno, Italy sits on the coastline with easy access to the Tuscany countryside. Take an easy train trip to explore the Pisa or explore Florence, Italy. Livorno was the stomping ground of the Medici family and had an important part in Italian Renaissance . Today you can walk through the city and enjoy the sights of the shops aligning the streets. Or you can sit outside a cafe and enjoy an Italien beer or an ice cold gelato. Buon Appetito!
This silhouette was captured during a night of fun. My friends and I strolled around Regensburg, Germany’s city center, looking for a party. A Good friend of ours was leaving to study in France for five months. The small shadowed alleys are aligned with places to wet your whistle and meet new friends. Prost! Cheers! Bon Appetit!
