Still Learning To See



With the sun lower in the sky, the shadows, even at mid-day, stretch long and seem more intense.

I find these days—sometimes rare in often rainy November—to be delightful for seeing how the shadows—large and small, soft and hard, inside and out—play in our world.

  1. John, you never cease to amaze! The curl on that leaf would be missed by so many–and the delightful “squiggle” of that vine segment is magical. Thanks for sharing your eyes and thoughts–you always are able to see the bigger picture in the tiniest parts of nature, and I need to be reminded about that larger scope when humanity seems to lose its way.

    Thanks and more thanks 🙂

    Abstract art has nothing on nature. How often we overlook the simplicity of the complexity in the world around us. The texture and shape, not to mention the burgundy and lime green shades are missed by most. The Tree shadow in the wooden door way looks as though it is Japanese brush art. Wonderful camera captures once again, John.

    Seeing the simplicity of the complexity of nature which surrounds us is something your photos exemplify. The twisted shapes with burgundy and lime shades of the large leaf are not seen by most who walk by. The shadows in the doorway look as though they were made with a Japanese brush. I enjoy seeing what your camera captures.
