Dangling in the Shadows #photography

There is peace in the shadows.

There is reprieve from heat and rest from toiling.

There is silence, cool and large.

There is silence beating in time with Nature’s heart.

Sweet whispers pass like lovers’ vows,

Pink kisses drawn from soft round cheeks-

stealing golden moments.

Steal away

into the shadows…

Oblivious #photography

367B2865-D75B-4FDC-A457-608D8452949E

Oblivious

not aware or concerned about what is happening around one..

unaware, unconscious, heedless, unmindful, insensible, unheeding, ignorant, unsuspecting, unobservant, unconcerned, impervious, unaffected, insensitive, indifferent, detached, incognizant

To sink into desire’s delight

with wild abandon, not to fight

heart’s impetuous impulse.

 

Sweet, the taste of freedom,

soft the warmth of embrace,

unsuspecting of the moment

when you leave without a trace.

 

What cares for convention in

the brilliant light of promise-

to live, to drink, to breathe

this ecstasy…

obliviously!

Exquisite #photography

ex·quis·ite
/ekˈskwizət
Extremely beautiful and, typically, delicate.
“exquisite, jewellike portraits”
synonyms: beautiful, lovely, elegant, graceful

”Her beauty is humbly exquisite, her graceful movements mesmerize the sun into submission, and the wind worships her magnificent countenance…”

Sigh…

Gotta’ Find Some Grub

I love the weekend. Not just because I don’t have to get up before the sun, force myself to face the shower and go to work, but because of all the wonderful opportunities these 48 hours afford me.

I usually start my weekend with coffee on the back porch, phone and camera at the ready, just in case something miraculous comes along. As usual there was no shortage of such miracles today and perhaps I will share more of them later.

The other great thing about weekends is that I have the chance to work on my creative projects. Since I work out of our dining area which faces the back porch, I can still watch for little surprises now and then.

This afternoon brought one such unexpected delight. We usually see Zippy, our resident chipmunk, or one of his relatives and descendents darting across the yard or hanging near the edge of the porch just daydreaming; but  by the time I grab my camera the visitors have disappeared. Today I was stealthier than my little friend, or perhaps he was just distracted by hunger and determination. Either way I managed to photograph his little adventure.

Man, I’m hungry!

Upsie daisy!

Those leaves were jiggling, folks.

Ahhh…just the grub I was looking for.

Literally. 🙊

In a flash he was off into the bushes again. And we have solved the mystery of the smashed leaves on our plant from time to time.

I just can’t get past the cuteness, even though he looks like a fancy rat. 😉💕

I hope you find whatever thrills you and fills you this weekend.

Color My World..

5A01D326-A6EE-4112-8E17-CF3E95100CEF

There are times, it seems,

like in misty dreams

where a lack of color

brings clarity.

Subtle hues of

shadow and light,

a silent whisper

of Earth’s delight.

Timeless,

Motionless,

Ethereal.

Perhaps the reds

and golds and blues,

the roses’ blush

and sunset views,

obscure,

detract,

the impact

of line and form,

cool and warm.

Enter imagination-

sharp, unfurled-

in the blink of an eye

to color my world!
