Photo Challenge: The Path Less Traveled By

Two roads diverged in a woods, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
—Robert Frost

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
—Yogi Berra

WPC: We See into the Life of Things

Beneath winter’s white lattice, there is always anticipation of the melody of a summer waterfall.

While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

–William Wordsworth, Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey

Photo Challenge, Relax: Shall I Compare Thee to an Autumn Day

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day,” wrote Shakespeare.

If the Bard had lived in Michigan, he might have chosen an autumn day, with crimson leaves set against a blue  sky, as his model for ephemeral beauty.  There’s nothing quite as relaxing as the balmy breeze of a fall day, with the radiant colors reflected in a lake’s mirror.
