Simplicity


I started posting photographs here five months ago today. Since then daily I seek out something to share with you all through my eyes. As I took a long walk today there was much to see. It was a nice chance for me to reconnect with my surroundings after not feeling my best the last day or so. I have found that I can search and search and the best pictures are often right under my nose. That reminds me that simplicity is so alluring. I snapped this picture of the fence at the bottom of the hill where we live. It isn't a sturdy, black iron or an interesting chainlink. It is just a plain wood fence. Pretty interesting when you add the blocks of concrete sidewalk and the shadows.

Anna, I am thoroughly enjoying your blog photos and commentary. It is great to get to know you better (even though I have known you since your Baptism). You have a great sense of humor and a unique way of seeing the world. Thank you for sharing it with us.
