Finding solace in nature’s protection

Picture perfect! ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

Picture perfect!

This was an unforgettable outing… when life gets too chaotic we are lucky
to have the possibility to run to the hills to seek solace in its protection.
Regardless to past behavior, nature embraces & cradles humanity unconditionally.

As hard as it was to choose the best of this collection, I tried to put myself
into the viewer “shoes” & select the top ones which came to a grand total of
sixteen so, my apologies for the length of this post ­čÖé

From the benches I pay homage (Trees 5) 2.6.2013

Bench retreat

From the benchesÔÇŽ

From the benches I read and pay
Homage to the reverence I feel
Toward the decorum surrounding

From the contrast in colorsÔÇŽ
To peaceful hidden spots or thick
Shiny roots exploring the mysteries
Of earthÔÇÖs nether.

All groanÔÇŽWhisper in harmony
A lullaby to the ones who see.

Trees… The artistry of a master (Trees 1)

Tree sculpture

The next few posts will be dedicated to trees of all shape, in all places, tree-trunks, their purpose and our benefits by having them around us.
I have always been fascinated by the strength and energy that emanates from them and found my photo collection growing…
While selecting them for this project which I like to think of as a tribute to the trees around us, I realized Venice had hardly any trees (but many plants) something I hadn’t noticed on our short stay there.

Tree sculpture

A bulge, A rimple
The streaks of sap
The neat folds of a
Bird’s hiding place
Each one carved with
The accuracy and skill
Of a surgeon’s scalpel
With the artistry of…

A master.
