"Make your own path"...

'Going with the flow' doesn't mean you have to take the same path. Don't be afraid to be yourself. If you were like everyone else, the path would be straight and boring. Veer off, change, switch, shift, turn. Be creative. Be yourself. With a closer inspection of this photograph, you can see all the different paths some water molecules decided to take.

Waiting for gas

This vintage Plymouth is parked alongside what once was a gas tank, as well as a vintage Ford pickup. When this Plymouth was new, the list price was $1,392. The 217ci engine produced 95 hp. A change appreciated by most drivers was the switch from the foot-operated starter pedal to a push button on the dashboard. I was especially drawn to the vine growing inside the car and how it appears as if painted on the windshield.

"Open Arms"...

Over 20 years ago, I composed this photograph of the Christ of the Ozarks statue. The setting sun is giving heavenly light not only to this earthly statue, but also to the moon that appears ironically small compared to this 66-foot statue. I hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

Nature is full of symbols if we take the time to appreciate them. For some, symbols may be sounds, textures, shapes or colors. Whether this tree could simply be a reflection in a lake is almost irrelevant. What you may find interesting is all the 'notations' at the end of every branch. Are these messages that trees are able to send to each other, or are they messages to us? Do you ever ask yourself what nature is trying to tell us? Comments welcome.
