This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

Come Apart

"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while:" (Mark 6:31)

Today we leave the sunny south (not exactly a desert place, I realize), rested and renewed from a wonderful vacation.  Someone once said you should "come apart so you don't come apart". Good advice, I should think.

Too wonderful (Part II)

I don't usually post images taken with my cell phone but this one is too fascinating not to share.  Again, God's creation is just "too wonderful" (Prov. 30:18&19). And yes, he swallowed the whole thing.  Tough on the frog.

Too wonderful

The way of an eagle in the air was mentioned by Solomon as one of the things he found to be "too wonderful" (Prov. 30:18-19).  Perhaps in our modern comfort with human air travel we've lost some of our sense of wonder.  No, not an eagle, but wondrous all the same.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? (Ps. 8:3&4)

It's probably clear to those nearest me how much I love those couple of verses from the Psalms.  And what better to remind me of them than the "supermoon" we enjoyed in shrouded splendor a few weeks back!

Shrink Wrap

I have to say I wasn't aware of this use of "shrink wrap" until just recently...

Pollen.  It makes my eyes water and reduces the enjoyment of several varieties of blooming plants.  Yet so vital for the transmission of life.

This shot was taken with a macro lens (no magnification) and shows a surprising amount of detail of the pollen just waiting to be drawn off by a circulating bee.  Always amazed at the intricacy of the Creation.
