Times Past, Bittersweet

“There are four kinds of people in the world, Ms. Harper. Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those that breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you will realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say.”   P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe

“A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.” Frank Lloyd Wright

“Places draw us to them for reasons beyond the feeling derived from the five senses…some deeper recognition is at work, felt through a unextinguishable animal sensibility.” Peter Smithson

Photography: Begs questions……..

Have to admit to being pretty much a novice re photography. I see opportunities. But, the mechanics of the camera, so far, escape me. I will eventually gather all the how to’s up into smooth actions in the field. But, for now, I do more seeing and thinking….preferrable to me.

Nature shots are more about light, shapes, textures and spirituality. Old structures, man made presence, beg questions. The Who’s, What’s, How’s, etc. make me stand there and imagine. Do you do that too? Such outings, often lead to back at home research to answer those questions.

broken top SBCemeteries are another place that give me pause…a balance between nature, man and spirit.

Photography & Mountain Top Trees: Flagging

wind sheer SwittersB

“In areas with extremely strong prevailing winds, such as the tops of mountains or sea cliffs, trees receive forces predominantly from one direction. The result is an involuntary growth response called flagging. The leaves on the windward side are killed by wind-borne particles, and the windward branches are bent gradually leeward by the constant force.

The result is that the foliage points mostly downwind of the trunk, which itself leans away from the wind. This makes the tree much more streamlined, reducing the wind forces to which it is subjected. In the most exposed areas, the wind also tends to kill off the leading shoot at the top of the tree, so that the only living shoots are the ones that point downwind.” (source)
