Lessons from my backyard

Drip by drip, winter quietly surrenders to a fresh new season.

And just as in all of life, there are lessons to be learnt from the world all around us if we but pause a while to see. Nature is often a reflection of the truest attributes of man. I was studying the ever-transforming still life just out in my own yard. I thought each of these shots speak of a quality which is a part of every living creature – how much more to be cultivated in a single human heart. I wish you all these and more!

The light of a good character surpasseth the light of the sun and the radiance thereof. Whoso attaineth unto it is accounted as a jewel among men ~ Bahá’u’lláh, Tarazát
