Field flowers

D300 - 195 mm, 1/320 sec f/4.0, ISO 200

It is so difficult to understand

because it is simple, and in plain view.

D300 - 24 mm, 1/100 sec f/4.0, ISO 200

Searching, rambling,
aimless wand'ring
too many things withered prematurely.

Latched doors,
entangled thoughts
scratching self-constructed boxes

and when one says: "look, I understand!"
- for what it's worth -
it's a dead end.

My life as a pebble

D300 - 12 mm, 13 sec f/20, ISO 200

When I think about life, my life (as I can't say I know any more than my one life), I feel the weathering of the waves. Ocean waves can be gentle, soft, soothing.. or fierce, ruthless and terrible. With their very essence they shape worlds and build extraordinary beauty.
They also create fields of pebbles.
These pebbles are all similar and all different to each other. Gray, only when you look them from afar, and color textured when closely examined.
I like to touch them, to walk on them. I relate to them, one gray pebble among many, becoming rounder and rounder as the waves smooth out my asperities. Alone in a multitude, so alike to all the others in my uniqueness. What is this ocean? Time perhaps? The spiritual world?
I am still fascinated by the sea and the shapes and colors surrounding it, I often dream about it, and even more often I photograph it (as you have probably realized).
This long and cumbersome preamble wants to justify the picture above, which shows the very same beach before the rock depicted in the previous post. Photographic alliteration...

Unknown, before our eyes

an archaic awe stirs our fears.

D300 - 300 mm, 1/320 sec f/7.1, ISO 1000

I weep

for what could have been and is not,

for the beauty I don't see,

for the time lost.

The snake

Unlikely fears,

forebears reminiscence,

geometric beauty.
