Not an extraordinary butterfly. Just a simple green leaf. However, the combination of the colors, lines, and shapes of the ‘team effort’ makes it an attractive image. This counterpart to add the magic touch to our life can be your significant other, your friend, your family or simply an occasional acquaintance.
Living in Northwest, I am really spoiled with good weather. I have very little tolerance with excessive chill or heat. Outdoor temperature was 20-22. It took me a hour before I finally had my heavy coat and gloves on and stepped out of the comfort zone.
The ground was frozen hard and yet hollow after the moisture is shrunk. The leaves were coated with shimmering ‘crystals’ and deadly silent below the frost. Maple leaves are mostly down the ground lifeless, but the unique shape and colors still stand out. I can sit on the ground focusing on maple leaves all day long, but my frozen fingers begged me to quit.
Images with gorgeous lighting are supreme, but I don’t get depressed on overcast days. Contrarily I love that silent, soft and surreal feel. Earth tones are ‘All Natural’ and All Made in Heaven. Don’t you love them?
If you ask me, “what’s the weather like in your area?”, I have couple images to voice for me.
It was cold, but not too extreme. Thin frost, slight wind and frozen fog. I am crazy about the fog. It fogged heavily a few days ago, but the road was so icy that I had no guts to get down the hill. I had my car dancing on ice for a few seconds before shooting down the hill once before and that was enough experience for me.
I often receive forward emails with golden mottos that you should live by and if all are executed, your earth life will be as good as in heaven. The question is, how long it will take you to realize and live to the fulfillment of these golden rules. I am afraid life is approaching to the end when I am not stirred up by a tiny bubble any more. I prefer bubbles after bubbles and all over the places.
There are four animals that I don’t particularly care for. (Please don’t get defensive if you happen to love them.)
Dogs (they bark too much and disturb my concentration sometimes), Turkey (they are Occupy Street, 52 of them at one time), Deer (oh, dear, they munch many live things and drained my pocket at nursery) and you all know Squirrels (the master destroyer).
I stay away from them or chase them away. But, out of my character, I took couple shots that you would not believe. Instead of wrinkled face and aged neckline, it looks
Can you see why I was Wow’d and thinking glory of God? In front of this scene, I felt speechless. Any more human language is obsolete if I try to describe how beautiful it is and how the impact was on me. A skinny tree trunk was in the way and I decided to leave it alone. I have wandered through the woods….

Call it an ordinary day, a nice day, a productive day or another day of discovery. If not for photography, I would not appreciate life so much. I am sure of that.
