Objects and Thoughts

There are those times when we are outdoors, be it in the woods, along a stream, perhaps walking a sandy shore, or just sitting out in the yard. Many times we notice objects some of which are beautiful some are not. In that moment it's seen and just as quick, it's forgotten. Here are a few images of such objects.

This sea shell lays in the sand. It was a home to some creature, now broken it still has worth. The beauty it has as it rests with sand and stone along with bits of broken sea life are like stained glass art.

The branch of a young pine tree. In its youth it reaches out to all of us, showing fresh enthusiasm. In the course of its life it will endure many hardships. Lets hope it survives.


Plants growing in a tidal estuary. They sway with both tide and wind. They will become completely submerged when the tide is in and left high and dry as the tide moves out. There beauty can be enjoyed everyday of the year.


This white feather, perhaps from a gull who needed it no more. It lies here at the mercy of the winds, but for the sea weed that extends its arm to hold it in reassurance.


A flower growing along a stream. It casts its beauty. If and angler has a not so good of a day, this lovely creation in its own way will put a smile on his face.

Take the time folks.
