...i drop words of comfort...


there are days I drop words of comfort on myself 
like falling rain & remember it is enough to be taken care of by myself.

i love this black and white.
i posted the color version.
a couple of weeks ago.
i believe it also captured the subject.
this is a milkweed leaf.
off my back deck.
that was left lacey.
by a bug.
it looks grainy.
because of the leaf particles.
being left by the hungry chap.
FINALLY.
received rain yesterday.
my grass has been beyond thirsty.
but today.
i see a hue of green beginning again.
life is good.
when something as simple.
as a green hue to your grass.
makes you smile.
just BE.

Wonderful capture, Robin! It's always good to be able to say and believe that life is good and be able to see again those things that make you smile! Have a lovely weekend!

It seems like a completely different image in black and white. Love the quote, of course. It should be enough, shouldn't it?

The grainy wood is a wonderful palette for this mesh of intricate shadow. Stunning in monochrome.

The large shadow in this photo reminds me so much of a blanket or quilt being spread over someone at bedtime.
