Sand and Slate

 Nature has always been an inspiring muse. I was remembering days at the beach in Union Pier MI, and collecting images that inspired that color story. Take a look at the amazing treasures that sand and slate combined create. Jewels.

"The Greek word for "return" is nostos. Algos means "suffering." 
So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return."       
-Milan Kundera

   "The moment you give close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself." 
-Henry Miller

Looking back you realize that a very special person 
passed briefly through your life, and it was you.                 
-Robert Brault

" I don't care what I see outside. My vision is within!
Here is where the birds sing! Here is where the sky is blue!"

"Never withdraw from life"   
-Diego Rivera

                              Velvet Morning

  1. Um... I've taken almost the exact same photo of myself with a boat as the first one! Teehee! Without seeing this. Except I wear all black and look into the camera :D You may have seen one of my self-portraits with a boat on my blog, the other one hasn't been published yet. How are ya?
