Photo Challenge: A Last Peek for a Sinking Star

The summer sun takes a last peek through the trees before its nightly slumber.

To follow knowledge like a sinking star,
Beyond the utmost bound of human thought.
–Alfred Lord Tennyson

Photo Challenge: How Dull…Not to Shine in Use!

How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
To rust unburnish’d, not to shine in use!

Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.

Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses

Photo Challenge: Odysseys, to Seek a Newer World

The first of all wanderers, the “man of many ways,” who gave his name to odysseys, came to life in Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poetry:

Come my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
For my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars.
Ulysses
