Like a dew-drop on the morning grass

Like a dew-drop on the morning grass

Your body is like a dew-drop on the morning grass, your life is as brief as a flash of lightning. Momentary and vain, it is lost in a moment.

– Dogen Zenji

Some other pictures from last week’s brief excursion.
The droplets you see here were actually tiny – you can get a sense of their size when you compare them to the grass blades.

Another thing:
My portfolio site is currently under reconstruction, so the link leads to nowhere at the moment. I plan to finish it either this week or next. I will keep you posted via Twitter or the Facebook page (see links at right) or ultimately on this blog.

To close with another Dogen quote and another picture (click to enlarge):

To what shall I liken the world?
Moonlight, reflected
In dewdrops,
Shaken from a crane’s bill.


Crossing the Border

Continuation of my abstract/surreal macro series.
I’d say it is a bit like recognizing shapes in clouds.
To see the other pictures of this series, click here. More to come…

As you know this week I have a motto: ‘Balance’.
On Tuesday I posted an HDR landscape picture of a balanced stone rock, and here we have a dolphin balancing a ball – both existed only for a fraction of a second in Another World.
You can find the other photos of this abstract macro series (not about the subject ‘Balance’ though) by clicking here or via the Tag Cloud.

As always click on picture for larger and sharper version.

Yes, I did change the title, a thing I woud usually never do.
After I took this photo I saw a balanced rock in this. But now, after receiving comments, I cannot help but see a dophin with a ball as well.
It is fascinating how the pattern finding mechanisms of the human brain work sometimes…

This is the third picture of a new abstract/surreal macro series I’ve been creating.
For those of you who missed the first two photos:
First one: The Sad Woman
Second one: The Hunched Juggler

More still to come, so stay tuned. As always, best viewed large (click on pic).

This is the second picture of a new abstract/surreal macro series I’ve been creating.
