Not The Same

Sometimes I forget to stop, and take a good look around. But when I remember to do so, I am hoping to gain depth of perspective, so that I can see more than what I have already seen for myself. And most of the time, it reveals a whole other side, or sides, to the scene, completing a picture in context.

So, last night, at my second Trans-Siberian Orchestra show of the day, I took a clue from the person beside me, and took a picture that I wouldn’t normally think of taking. The result was very cool, I thought. I can only imagine what the scene looks like from atop the massive stage where the band performs.

I have quite a few pictures from the Manchester shows, and I plan to share them over the next week or two. Look for more Trans-Siberian Orchestra content coming soon, right here! Thank you.


Happy Thanksgiving 2016

I thought about Thanksgiving quite a bit, as I laid in bed late last night.

And I thought reflection in humility would serve well the left or the right.

We have one voice that I hope we all cared enough to thoughtfully use.

Aftermath then, justification through pontification, just an modish excuse.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This link is from 2011, but pertinent still, I feel.

Afternoon Light

But where would I rather be?

If everyday this were mine to see.

Holding the light.

Never gets old.

More Than A View

I think a lot of people would be better served if they could sit here for a week, or even two.

The isolation, creation so perfect, in thought and silence, would  be better than we usually do.

Sun in the Corner

The sun was setting on the distant horizon, with splendor that captured everyone’s eyes. 

But I noticed what it shone on, and noticing it’s beauty was truly my prize.

From the shadows I captured this corner of a pasture all lit by the setting sun. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2016.
