a moment from Paris: sitting on the steps of Sacre Coeur, listening to this cover band playing, feeling this happiness of an unique moment - and trying to capture it. seen like this, a video is a crop of reality, too. everything is.
today is inspired by photo friday‘s challenge: “Enormous” the bridge photo is from a road trip through Florida, taken somewhere between Tampa and Naples. no stopping option there, so it’s taken right through the windshield – looking at it now, it feels the light reflections adds to the otherworldliness of the scene. below, the full image.

today: picking up yesterday’s flowers and trying some variations. the blue one makes me think of sea anemones and starfish. (which are called “Seerosen + Seestern” in german: ”sea roses + sea stars”)
another garden photos: a close up of a Zinnia which started to blossom some days ago, and now develops row after row of petals. if you look close, you can see the next row unrolling in the centre. i thought i know about petals, but now looked up the Wiki-page, and learned 3 new words: […]

Everything looks so different upon further inspection, eh?” the lines made me think of “the river of stones”, which i joined in January, and which is on now […]
a july moment from last year in close-up. and here, the original:
today: 2 abstracts of yesterday’s phlox image. the first made me think of matrix. and a link – a blog post from this morning that also includes the image: the horrible beauty of the world.
after the abroad journey moments, a home moment: a close-up of the phlox flowers that are in bloom now, here, in the backyard.
