The sun hasn't shown much around here lately. I really wish it would come back! The cloudy days make the world more bleak and stark. There's very little color to photograph, so I looked for the next best thing...forms and shapes. I found that forms and shapes are my muse! Well, plus macro shots, that is!! When the leaves are gone and the flowers are gone the shapes magically appear!
Seed pods are a favorite of mine! I've been amazed at the different shapes and sizes of these little seed bearers! I can just image the seedpod slowly opening and its seeds being scattered by the wind or animals assuring us of their return next spring.
Sometimes I find ball shapes or...
elongated shapes or...
Each not very colorful, but amazing
in it's texture and beauty.
I'm captivated by the curls, shapes, and textures of the drying leaves. Each one so different and unique.
Even the dried flower is gorgeous
and graceful as she bends her head.
I always count it a special day when I find a little heart-shape in nature. I've heard them called "little love note from nature." They're always a surprise that causes me to gasp and makes my heart beat a little faster!
Take time, notice the small things and enjoy!!
