“A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.”
- Ansel Adams
So the other day the light was just right and Pitiful Pearl was looking very good. This plant was given to my Mommy and it was pitiful looking. For years we have transplanted it, fertilized it, watered it, put it out in the sun, and soon repeating all of that for another season in the sun. I have no idea what kind of plant this is, but it has grown and grown and stopped looking pitiful. I loved how the light was coming in through the partially opened blinds and was catching the leaves just so. A series of lines and curves and the light and I was looking for the camera before the sun changed position and it was lost.
Although if this plant gets much bigger I am not sure it will fit in the house anymore. We had it in the living room, then the kitchen and now the dining room. After this re-potting it will have the ability to near double in size. I will have to add onto the house, maybe a nice greenhouse or something that will also allow me to grow lemons and exotic plants all year round. Although I barely have enough time to keep writing all of these narratives for the photographs I take.
Time management is something I need to focus on if I could focus. Maybe I need to take a pill like everyone else it seems to help them get through their days. Anyhow, I am constantly reminded that there is so much beauty around us and I see more and more everyday as I continue this quest. The old saying stop and smell the roses is around for a reason. We have to remember the little things, to find the beauty in the everyday. Enjoy!
