Hello Readers, it is time to join in with the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This week Ann-Christine has invited folks to share a post about “unexpected” – and because it is Sunday – I am combining my Sunday Trees post with this theme.
#1: Pair of Trees with tasty Creamsicle in the sky….
That unexpected orange in the sky still brings a smile. I was just at Amy’s blog (here) and she had a Mark Sullivan quote that reminded me of this photo: “Then at last he took off his glasses- the sun was setting, casting the lake in coppers and golds.”
#2: Trees on the corner – with open an road.
When I get tired, photos like this remind me to stay the course, go on green, and keep on keepin’ on…
3: Cowboy-boot vase with some foliage
The boot vase reminded me of folks I love (the ones that remind me of country stuff… Like my dad, my friend K, my step-daughter… and author Louis L’Amore).
Did you know that I have a special Louis L’Amore book tucked away for sauna reading. Sometimes I take it out – enjoy a few pages – and savor. This has to be the slowest book read ever, a few pages every now and then, but it is really nice. I get this little dose of Louis L’Amore and feel all enriched.
Speaking of sauna, this image reminded me of a picture for the funny signs challenge:
4: Tree Silhouettes with a an unexpected “Y” in the tree
This tree photo had a stage vibe. It reminded me of Shakespeare’s line: “The world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
Shakespeare’s line about how we are “merely players” reminded me of the old Rush song, Limelight. I used to love this song so much that I actually stayed in a store until it ended. Now when it comes on the radio (unexpectedly) – I always smile and pause to enjoy it.
5: Last December I had the chance to pass by this old house in Florida. Back in the early 1990’s, this house was a little gem on the corner.
This stump is all that remains, but I remember taking my nieces for a walk. On the way back, with ice cream in hand, we’d catch the mist of the sprinklers and enjoy a bit of shade under that majestic tree.
6: Tree branch hanging down
Sometimes trees make us feel lighter
7: Tree Art in Black and Gold
Sometimes a little minimalistic art reminds me that less can be more…
8: Trees in a row
Sometimes trees bring a soft sense of order
9: Tree from Tampa
Sometimes a poised tree reminds me to stand tall, proud, and smile to be alive.
10: Tree near cross walk
The little red hand on the cross walk sign reminded me to pause – see the beauty – smile – exhale – and just be – while enjoying some trees…
Thanks for viewing….
In closing, I want to share another Rush song. “Time Stands Still” would fit the former picture, but that is a not a top Rush song for me. And I used to like Tom Sawyer, but the New England Patriots ruined that song for me, but I digress.
So let’s see, Fly by Night or Closer to the Heart???
