I totally forgot that the moon, Jupiter and Venus were going to be in conjunction in the waning days of January. It was not until morning, near sunrise, as I was taking the trash out, that I looked up in the brightening sky and saw the moon and Venus. It was seven degrees and I didn’t take many pictures in the crisp January air. It was, as all astronomical events prove to be, interesting. And beautiful to behold.
A snowy winter day in mid January. Not much to do, except look outside the window and stay warm. The weather outside may have been frightful, but the view inside was delightful. The song was better.
Autumn in Northern Virginia. Huntley Meadows in Alexandria, Virginia. In the middle of suburbia, the woods and wetlands remind you of the true beauty that nature brings.
It was, for August in the Washington D.C. area, a relatively cool day. In the midst of summer, it was time for a walk in the garden, to take the sun in, to find that even in the undulating continuum that we call life, beauty always beckons, just waiting for us to find it. We need not look far. It is always within ourselves, if one decides to live a life not solely for one’s self but also for others. Happiness comes not from selfish abandon but from selfless generosity.
It was hot. It was humid. It was colorful. Summer and sunflowers. At the Sunflower Garden in Westminster, Maryland.
On the way to an unexpected trip to Manila, the first leg of the trip was a stop at Seattle, Washington. I have never been to this city and I was hoping that there would be a relatively cloudless view of the surrounding area as the plane approached and landed in Seattle. Well, it was a fortuitous day indeed. Hopefully a harbinger of good things to come. And with the Pixel 2 XL in hand, why not post unedited pictures while in the airport. So here goes.
And a welcome sight after five hours.
The Seattle music scene (not really, but the guy was good).
Look closely and the world looks like a different place. A beautiful flower, incredible. At close range, it is otherworldly.
