Tuesdays of Texture | Week 30 of 2017

“Nodding in the Garden”

“If it comes, let it come. If it goes, it’s ok, let it go. Let things come and go. Don’t let anything disturb your peace. Stay calm and carry on.” 
― Germany Kent

“Nodding in the Garden”

Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 30 of 2017

 I had no particular reason for making this image, other than it was peaceful. That’s often the way of it; I have no intention of making a particular image, it’s simply there, and it appeals to me. Often, I don’t even know why at the time, I just know I need to capture this moment. It’s not till I sit down to review the images of the day that I become aware of the ‘why’.
In the case of this image of purple hosta blossoms, the ‘why’ is still not revealing itself to me. So, I sit and enjoy it, for what it is, taking in the colours and textures, reveling in the memory of a soft, summer day.

    It is a warm and placid image. I know the feeling- I see something before me and I must snap the photo. Sometimes, the mood and moment cannot be captured, and it is up to my feeble brain to remember the scene in the gallery of my mind.
    I think you may be mistaken about the thought that the “why” has not revealed itself.
    I believe it is summed up in your last sentence:
    “So, I sit and enjoy it, for what it is, taking in the colours and textures, reveling in the memory of a
    soft, summer day.”

    Seek peace,

    Paz
