To see beneath the surfaces..๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒบ



“To photograph truthfully and effectively
is to see beneath the surfaces
and record the qualities of nature
and humanity which live or are latent in all things.”

“When words become unclear,
I shall focus with photographs.”
-Ansel Adams

Sunflower honest and upright๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒพ

๐ŸŒป-Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.

Some seem to smile;
some have a sad expression;
some are pensive and diffident;
others again are plain,
honest and upright,
like the broad-faced
sunflower ๐ŸŒป and the hollyhock. ๐Ÿ’›
~Henry Ward Beecher


Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.

Where flowers bloom…


Where flowers bloom, so does hope

The seeds we plant within
are the harvest we have to give..”

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Romans 12:12

And eloquently spoke

In languages of rainbows

Summer ends, and Autumn comes,
and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always
and a full moon every night.

~Hal Borland

Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree.

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone,
but also on trees,
and in the flowers
and clouds and stars.
