Pic(k) of the Week: Mist over fen

Mist over fen

Almost painterly...

An autumnal tree, in morning mist, on the boggy, boggy banks of Postal Pond.

In Legacy Park, a 77-acre city property in Decatur, Georgia, USA.

Captured on 28 October 2020: a peaceful morning, twenty-four hours before Zeta's local blast.

Pic(k) of the Week: Mauve mob (and kismet)

Mauve mob

Back in May, I noticed these tiny (~4-cm) mauve wood-sorrel wildflowers blooming in a field just beyond the perimeter of Seminary Wood, in Legacy Park, in the city of Decatur Georgia, USA.

Then, kismet.

A few days ago, a pianist noticed the photo on Flickr and offered this response:
With Claude Debussy's Rêverie, performed by me, I comment on your excellent image. Emotions between reality and dream.

Ain't the world weird and wonderful, sometimes?

Pic(k) of the Week: Life, what is it but a dream?

Ocoee River (at Big Creek) 02
In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die;

Ever drifting down the stream
Lingering in the golden gleam
Life, what is it but a dream?

Lewis Carroll

Pictured: raft put-in on the Ocoee River near Archville, Tennessee, USA, in the Cherokee National Forest.

Photo taken 8 September 2018.
Poem excerpt from 1871.
