It's Fall

A tree uses what comes its way to nurture itself. By sinking its roots deeply into the earth, by accepting the rain that flows towards it, by reaching out to the sun, the tree perfects its character and becomes great. ... Absorb, absorb, absorb. That is the secret of the tree.
-- Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao

Absorbing life. Fall seems like the perfect time to do this. Cool creation/image. I hope you're having a good week.

Exactly, "absorbing life". Hope you are enjoying doing just that as fall dances in.

I spent a ton of photo time over the spring and summer getting ready for a photo/fiber workshop and this is one of those images. The one I mentioned to you earlier in the season.

One of the many projects was doing setups. I did a number of them in sets with dried leaves and flowers, shells, feathers, wooden elements gathered over the years and on. Contrived but it was fun to shift focus.
