Happy Holidays

Season's Greetings to friends and strangers,

from under the huge, blue skies of Western Australia.
Here the light is blindingly bright and the warm nights made of velvet ... and wine!

Back online early January.

I was amazed when I turned my head to look

I know how corny or worn this may sound, but …
Sometimes I can hardly breathe, realising how much beauty there is.
I was just walking away from the kitchen to do something else for a while, but turned back to for some reason, and saw the sink. I hadn't even realised while doing the dishes what was in front of me. This is the exact setting, I didn't touch or move anything – just almost started to cry and then got the camera : )

Perhaps this is life's way to compensate for the bad stuff that happens, to give us unlimited, stunning, amazing, breathtaking beauty, everywhere, if we choose to notice it.

On a wing and a prayer

I love how the texture on the praying mantis' back is so similar to the pattern of human skin.
Or is it the other way round?
