“In the hills giant oaks Fall upon their knees You can touch parts  You have no right to”  ― Kay Ryan There is simply no other way to describe this intergrown cluster of four massive oak trees that grow along a trail I hike frequently. The cluster breaks evenly into four trunks that grow independently, all the same size. Trees must be eighty to a hundred years old, based on their size. It… Read More

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche I came across yet another near-expired tulip. This one’s petals reminded me of a dancer ,with arms outstretched to the sky, spinning and dancing in the sun. It would appear a final flourish is in order.

“Your face is marked with lines of life, put there by love and laughter, suffering and tears. It’s beautiful.” ― Lynsay Sands I’m having a strange fascination with flowers past their prime.

Some, seem to hang on for quite a while, while others fall off at the slightest touch. The tulip above… Read More

I watched as they cycled between open , during the day, and closed, by night. Each day the open cycle… Read More

The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” ― Kahlil Gibran I really struggled to find a quote that complimented this photo. It’s such a contrast. These tulips have been the subject of my photos for a few days now, and I watched them mature and slowly fade, yet, to me, the beauty… Read More

“I have lived long enough. My way of life Is fall’n into the sere, the yellow leaf, And that which should accompany old age” – William Shakespeare The words to the Beatles, “Here Comes the Sun” echoes through my mind as I consider this image made on the trails yesterday. “It’s been a long cold northern winter”. Indeed, it feels that way. In reality, this past winter was relatively mild, delayed till late November in… Read More
