This week a contrast. Above, nature as I often experience it; a reflection or a glimpse mediated through my very urban existence. Below, nature with all its noise and fury.

Trees and water; the same but oh so different.

This post was written for Sally’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge. Like Sally, I’ve been away from home. Not for long, just a solo road trip to visit my father. My few days were filled with contemplation and reunion; new vistas and almost total independence from others. A wonderful experience, but it’s nice to be home.

Here are some other posts on the theme that I’ve enjoyed:

  2. Su, you’re posting early this week. 🙂 It sounds like you had a great time with your dad. What a blessing! I like both your photos, but that first one really catches my eye. Of course I’d like to see the second!
