Photo Challenge: Autumn’s Transient Music

Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.
–Friedrich Nietzsche

The crimsons of  autumn are but a transient visitor, too soon faded and eclipsed by winter’s shadow.

Photo Challenge: Summer’s Lease Has Too Short a Date


And summer’s lease hath too short a date.
Shakespeare, Sonnet 18

Today we have the longest sunlight of the year, but the seasons are transient–and green must sometime give way to gold.

Daisy’s Gentle Reminder to Savor the Longest Day

Do you always wait for the longest day of the year and then miss it?

—Daisy Buchanan, Great Gatsby

The summer solstice arrives in the eastern time zone of the U.S. shortly after midnight.  In Detroit, that will mean  about 15 hours and 17 minutes  of daylight.   Enjoy the light.

Photo Challenge, Focus: Curiosity Trumps Flight


Usually, a deer is a blur running away from you, a fleeting flicker disappearing into the woods.  But, fortunately, this doe’s curiosity stilled her urge to bolt,  and for a moment she stood out amidst the soft focus created by  dappled light.  Good fortune is the photographer’s best friend.
