… the sun was streaming in this morning through one of the upper windows in my bedroom and striking a large print I have of an aerial shot I took of Sycamore Canyon during a monsoon storm. It hangs on the wall above my headboard. It had the effect of a very tight crop of the image as the rest of the image was in deep shadow … I was looking at the image in the mirror on the opposing wall and it seemed like a pretty neat crop and here is what I saw … then and today.
Applying the same logic/experience to another aerial image I took while flying low over the Colorado Plateau, I came up with the image below. Light and shadows in a beautiful forest south and west of Rogers Lake.
The day was a very good one and after a rest, Wednesday holds promise to be the same. Have a beautiful day and take a few minutes during the day to look at life in a little different way … look for the beauty hidden in plain sight.
Whatever else you do or forbear,
impose upon yourself the task of happiness;
and now and then abandon yourself
to the joy of laughter.
And however much you condemn
the evil in the world, remember that the
world is not all evil; that somewhere
children are at play, as you yourself in the
old days; that women still find joy
in the stalwart hearts of men;
And that men, treading with restless feet
their many paths, may yet find refuge
from the storms of the world in the cheerful
house of love.
