Lotus in Bangkok

In front of a small Buddha statue in Bangkok, people flocked to offer lotuses and incense.  There was a silver platter that seemed abandon by a table, while others were busy with other bigger bunches.  I took this picture of the abandoned lotuses on a silver platter, to remind me about the beauty that is hidden from the ones that don’t closely enough.

Trees in Winter


It is so interesting how each tree responds to the change in climate differently.  It is always wonderful to live in the Midwest to see how the trees manifest what’s going on with the world.  The seasons are reflected by the growing, blooming, falling, shedding, baring, and re-budding.

simply beautiful...
