...perfect poise...

"the ideal individual
bears the accidents of life
with dignity and grace,
make the best of circumstances."
~aristotle
i am late getting to sss.
got up at 5:00am
to drive my lovely
daughter to
an open house
at western michigan university.
that appears to be
the college of choice
at this time.
she will be going into social work.
it is a lovely campus.
now for the business at hand...
HEY HARRIET
where shadows abound.
it is a beautiful fall day...
i am going outside.
just BE.

Great perspective with this shot. I love it.

The pot of clay is big, yet unassuming - its tole is to hold the flowers, not steal the spotlight. Likewise, the pretty and delicate flower shows the shape of true beauty as its shadow replicates the lovely flora. Both the pot and the flower are a perfect team...

Wow. You just have the most beautiful vignettes in your yard! This is exceptional!
Bless your daughter's heart for going into social work. A really tough area to head into these days.
What a milestone, huh?

That is such a wonderful image! Aristotle - he's not considered to be one of the great thinkers for nothing - love, love that quote! All the best to you and your daughter on the next exciting chapter in her life!!

Hey Harriet said...

Oh what a perfectly formed shadow! I hope that your daughter appreciates you getting up at 5am on a weekend! I'm sure she does :) Have a great week. Throw in an extra sleep-in or two to make up!

Nothing I can see this is a dried flower. I thought this was painted on the pot.

Outstanding, Rob?
