Welcome to the second post for this new blog dedicated to my photos and comments thereon (i.e. no poems/dream work or endless self-analysis :-D). I may also sometimes post both the orignal and edited versions of photos, with my rationale for the changes. Or whatever else occurs to me to share about a picture. There will also be gradual fiddling with the sidebar contents as I go along. Blogger has made a lot of changes since I last started a blog and my old brains are getting addled. Why oh why do folk fix things when they ain't broke? :-D

The photo above titled "End of the Romance" is one I'll be showing in a July 24th exhibit, here in the retirement community in which I live. I took it in the front office of our adminstration building. We have many wonderful gardens on the grounds and a number of folk who make arrangements of flowers from them. This particular shot puts me in mind of the Japanese idea of "wabi sabi" -- an aesthetic of beauty that recognizes nothing is permanent, nothing is perfect, and nothing is complete, which brings a sort of gentle accepting sadness to things.
