“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” — Buddha
While trying (and failing) to create some sort of folded/creased sculptures, I happily discovered this composition of crossing lines on one of the discarded pieces of paper.
A single yellow Maple leaf. There are hundreds, if not thousands of them outside my window.
“Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet.” –Victor Hugo
Reflection, meet shadow. Here is another shot of my son from the Milwaukee Art Museum this Labor Day weekend.
These small containers of washable paint belong to my son. I noticed the complementary colors when I was cleaning his painting supplies and I thought, ‘I have to shoot those!’
“Such a deep silence surrounds me, that I think I hear moonbeams striking on the windows.” –Lucian Blaga

This shot of a small spiral piece of paper was inspired, in part, by an incident in our home this morning. I’ll get to that in a moment.
