I think it’s inspiring the way this daylily was determined to bloom, despite the death around it. I’m sure there’s a metaphor there somewhere, but I’m too tired to express it.
I took this the other morning from my sidewalk. I’ve done nothing to it: no manipulations or editing of any kind. This is how it looked as I gazed at the sky and I had to run in and grab my camera. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am not a morning person, but even I saw the beauty in this sunrise.
This was taken in January. I love skeletal trees and when I saw the bird in the branches something about that touched me. Maybe because the tree appears dead and the bird is so alive? Also, I don’t know what kind of bird this is, so if anyone else can enlighten me I would love it.
This was taken at the lake in my apartment complex during the 2011 winter, but to me it looks like some kind of alien world. Those are ducks on the lake but seen from a distance they looked like strange creatures (okay, so they vaguely reminded me of the creatures in Pitch Black), so I decided to snap the shot and see what happened. It’s funny how barren things look in the photograph when in reality, the area was bursting with life, even in the bitter cold.
I walked into my room yesterday and found Sam laying on the floor, looking guilty, and had to capture his face. I love this neurotic little dog!
“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth
instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our
losses. That it can be good again.”
