Let me know which you prefer and why.
“From Above” is the theme for WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. It had me contemplating rushing to the city, and climbing scores of steps to stand atop and watch the throngs of urbanites parading below.
While interpretations for this challenge are aplenty, I have posted two in the Lens section that are true to the literal interpretation.
The first image was taken at the crossroads between a road and a creek. The bridge hovers above, and daily I am able to ponder its changes: the water reflecting, the flow rearranging, the wildlife appearing, the trees unfolding. I gaze below and much is revealed.
On this day in February the sun mirrored itself as the ripples moved around its glow. As usual the scene gave me a calm moment to meditate and be at one with nature.
The second image is part of an ongoing series of experimentation with the iPhone and its many apps. In the beginning of the week this tulip caught my attention as it stood in the afternoon sun. It’s flowerhead heavy, and yet it’s beauty was evident. I played with PhotoStudio and converted it to black and white.
In each photograph I’ve selected an example from Mother Nature, which is another tribute to her abundance and bounty. Earth Day may be beyond us, but my reverence for nature never waivers.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
