A Beautiful Lie

“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.”
Pablo Picasso

Pretty in Pink

I just love it when a plant attracts both butterflies and hummingbirds to a garden.  What a big bang for your buck in terms of a flower!  This beauty not only does all of that, it comes back every year, so there’s not much to fuss about once the flower is planted!  Lovely.

Moving

wpid-20150328_212911.jpgThis week, The Daily Post photo challenge was to depict motion and tell the story behind a photo.

This photo depicts the lead singer of a post-hardcore band called Wolves at the Gate.  I was lucky enough to be in the second row of the audience when he gave his all to a note!  The mic cable was swinging wildly and his voice was loud and piercing as the microphone hovered over his mouth and took it all in.  Such passion is rare and beautiful.

Art Against Odds

Incredible art, against the odds.
