Grandfather Mountain

What’s a better way to spend the day after Thanksgiving than to have some quality time with family. We went on a day trip to the mountains and although the way up was very foggy, it cleared up just in time for us to enjoy the magnificent scenery. I hope you enjoy the photos as…

Tunnel of Love

“People believe I Am what they see Me as, rather than what they do no not see. But I Am the Great unseen, not what I cause myself to be in any particular moment. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the Am-notness that I come, and to it I…

Peculiar

A human being is a single being. Unique and unrepeatable.   Eileen Caddy Isn’t it strange that I find this halfway bloom beautiful? I have shots of the same Azalea plant with flowers in full bloom and yet this one caught my eye. Have you ever considered yourself peculiar at times? I’d like to use…

Of Rainbows & Storms

As I was finishing up my Tangled Beauty blog post, my daughter called me for what she said another photo opportunity. And it sure was something not to be missed. Who would say no to rainbows? As I ran out to our front porch with my DLSR camera and smartphone in hand, the dark clouds…

Tangled Beauty

How can someone or something that is tangled up…be beautiful? In short, is there such a thing as beautifully confused or beautifully complicated and chaotic? I’m sure if we were to ask people, most will probably describe beauty as something more predictive and orderly. Someone or something who’s in charge or know what they are…

I found this beauty laying on the brick walkway at work . It was there, probably waiting to be picked up or wondering if somebody would notice. I have no idea if somebody else found her beautiful or if somebody took a few minutes out of their time to admire her. I did. I find…

Life in Black & White

I love writing. I love photography. I have to have both. My photos give life to my writing and vice versa. Without these two, I don’t think I would be who I am. Something would be missing. Not too long ago, someone…a very dear friend, told me to quit listening to music or reading things…

Masked Blooms

This month has been warmer than usual which resulted in unexpected and yet beautiful blooms all around. Pretty unusual this time of year. Could it be a sign of what summer is going to be like? Masked blooms. Too early for spring and pretty dangerous for the winter. It may be too early for the…

Campus Life

It’s been an above average kind of temperature here in NC the past few days and yesterday was such a beautiful day to venture out. With some hesitations due to lack of ideas on what to shoot, I grabbed my camera from the car and hope for the best. But when you love what you…

Deceiving Beauty

It’s been quite a busy past weeks. I miss sharing photos with you all and miss sharing my thoughts. But life, as its always been – has a way of distracting us. Work, family matters and the many other things that we allow to take away our ability to enjoy life and take things slowly….
