There’s not much I can say about this image. It was made deliberately but casually as my first effort at “contemplative photography”, expressing a feeling rather than providing information. To me it was an expression of the flow and movement of fall, with the stem curving downward with golden leaves swaying from it.

I realized that this is one of the most satisfying photos I’ve ever created, and it was taken in my own back yard.

So, look around you and find the simple joys you may not have noticed before.

Be at peace, and be blessed. I am.
