Beautiful Dying

I asked my wife yesterday not to throw away these dying lilies until I could photograph them. I love their poignant beauty. They remind me that even death can be tinged with loveliness.

Overwhelmed

We all have days like this occasionly. Lately, however, in the US it seems we’re having them more often.
