Silent Metaphors


"The greatest aesthetic beauty, the fullest power of expression, the real worth of the medium, lies in its pure form," John Paul Edwards

With the days of Winter numbered I've been looking back on the season and recalling the finer moments and not so fine moments. This was my second Winter photographing and just the step up in wardrobe made this year possible. I give a full standing ovation to my more seasoned mentors who gave enlightenment and saved my fingers and toes this year.  Being more prepared meant being able to stay longer out in the elements which proved to be the winning element for me.

Beaver Creek, Arizona

Freshly fallen snow precariously clings to the branches.
As you wander in the midst of this scene it feels like another world. 
The branches of trees you've seen hundreds of times and dismissed now hang in beautiful prose.
Lace-like and dreamy, the wind catches the powdery limbs and the airy snow departs.
It hangs in the air but for seconds, swirls and dances and falls to the ground,
 like music ♥

Could there be anything more outstanding than Winter in an Arizona desert.

Words

“Because even the smallest of words can be the ones to hurt you, or save you.” 
Natsuki Takaya

She despised words.
 Words could be twisted into anything. 
Life could be fantastical one day 
then words taken out of context, 
 meanings misconstrued could
crash her world the next.
