O.K., I admit, this is about as far away as one could get from the history of black basketball. But, since today is Earth Day, I decided to go ahead.
Happy Earth Day!
O.K., I admit, this is about as far away as one could get from the history of black basketball.
But, since today is Earth Day, I decided to go ahead.
These are some personal photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years, of flowers that grow on their own in my yard at home.
I took these photos with a Nikon D100, using a 60mm 1:2.8 lens. I guess it’s a side thing I do, just for my own enjoyment.
I’ve enlarged some of these and framed them nicely, then hung them up around the house. People who see them always say they are really great, even though I’m still not really sure what motivates me to do this … so, I just go with it.
Anyway, I hope you like them.
Meanwhile, for me, Earth Day is all about honoring the little things that add up to big things. If you look closely enough at anything, the beauty in it is always revealed. Including the beauty in ourselves and in others.
As in my jigsaw puzzle metaphor yesterday, every piece counts and every piece fits in somehow.
In case you’re interested, you can see more photographs like these in a special photo gallery I posted on Facebook.
