I waited a bit too long to shoot this red tulip blossom. It sat on my desk and slowly dried out. And I have to say, I’m quite pleased about that.
Only a few millimeters across, this is a tiny curl from the shoot of a pea pod. I love how something so small can be so truly wonderful and graceful.

For my penultimate 365 image, I asked friends on Facebook to help me with a few ideas for today.
“Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet.”
“By contemplating the impermanence of everything in the world, we are forced to recognize that every time we do something could be the last time we do it, and this recognition can invest the things we do with a significance and intensity that would otherwise be absent. We will no longer sleepwalk through our life.”
–William B. Irvine
By my count, this is self-portrait 34 in this project. When I need to shoot something interesting everyday and I can’t find a suitable subject, it makes sense to shoot myself.
I don’t have much to say about this image other than I love the texture on the leaves. As I’ve said before, any type of leaf fascinates me.
“Such a deep silence surrounds me, that I think I hear moonbeams striking on the windows.”
