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.

Ugly Beauty

Here’s three photographs I took of a flock of vultures sitting on pilings along the Petaluma River. These big birds are just flat ugly as creatures but there was something powerful and, dare I say, even majestic about this gathering.

Thank goodness it’s that time of year!

Shining Spring Gems

Today the temperature here in Boston went over 70 degrees. It’s time to do some serious mental housecleaning and begin to concentrate on the all the beauty that surrounds us. 

The Big Oak and The Storm

Nature’s power on display.

I love this old tree. It’s been around way longer than I’ve been on this planet. It sits in the middle of the lawn of my Grandparent’s place. They provided it a lot of space to show off and my goodness it certainly does.

Pretty City Morning

Living in the city keeps me on the lookout for pretty natural images. Not that this arrangement in the urn is “natural”, as in the wild. But the flowers and leaves are a lovely reminder of what will always exist beyond the confines of granite and iron.

Chihuly and The Leaf

P1030583-Editsmall

In the Boston Museum of Art is an enormous Dale Chihuly sculpture in the giant open food court. It looks for all the world like some sort of cactus like tree. This  photograph was taken of a leaf outside the building with a reflection of that sculpture overlaid on the little leaf.

I confess that the leaf appeals to me much more than the giant glass sculpture. I think its little form has infinitely more power and grace.
