Low Fire


I find there’s something enormously powerful about flowers if one takes time to look at them closely.

“Tulips shyly smiling, greet the spring
Tightly closed when at 
First we meet
Tulips slowly opening, begin to sing
Gaining volume 
Ever sweet 

No longer shy, as days grow longer, 
Raising their heads 
They begin to flirt
Tulips dressed in many a color
Breezes swirling 
Each floral skirt

Tulips, brazen painted hussies, 
Part their bright lips trying to seduce
The busy buzzing bees
Far too bold for dainty tussies
Vibrant Tulip flowers produce
Visions certain to please “
Mary Havran

A New Beginning

This photograph of my wife’s favorite flowers, tulips, marks the beginning  of what I hope will be a new direction for me. Until now I have concentrated mainly on street photography. Going forward I plan to concentrate on images with a significant “beauty component” because I don’t want to get stuck in only one form of photography. 

We’ll see how this project evolves but I’m exited to try it.

“The Two Are One”

I died for beauty but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.

He questioned softly why I failed?
‘For beauty,’ I replied.
‘And I for truth, — the two are one;
We brethren are,’ he said.

And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names…..Emily Dickinson

The Morning After

Well, the midterm elections are over. It’s peculiar but I feel neither sadness or elation. The only thing I feel for sure is that the national rancor is more than likely to get worse.

But for now, the weather is lovely , the sun is bright, the weather soft and that’s a blessing.

Boston’s Public Garden

Because we live so close, it is easy to take for granted the garden’s beauty. As today was cooling down, I wandered by and was struck hard by it once again. 

Heading Home…We’ll Miss This

We’ve been on the west coast for quite a while now and it’s time to go back to Boston. It snowed there yesterday.

No matter. Albert Einstein said, Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

I believe it.

Simple Beauty

I pine for simplicity!! Simple cameras taking pictures of simple subjects often create the most impact.
