“Bursts of gold on lavender melting into saffron. It’s the time of day when the sky looks like it has been spray-painted by a graffiti artist.” ~ Mia Kirshner. #Sunset in #Dublin, Ohio went from pink to orange to red and shades of glorious in between.

Spiderweb in Honduras

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” ~ Pablo Picasso ~ Spider web on the Panacam Trail, Parque Nacional Azul Meambar, Honduras.

Photography has tuned me into the smallest lovely details.  I notice the dew on a spiderweb, or the way a flower blooms.  And it gives me joy to see these small things.

Or perhaps the smallest details have strengthened my photography.

“Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.” ~ Evo Morales (Bolivian Statesman).
