Through the Lens of Life and Haiku


Through the lens I view life more attentively now as well with writing haiku. Both simplify visuals and written expression for me.

time at rest before journey
ocean bound with joy.

  1. It's been awhile since I visited Cape Ann. After seeing your photos I'm going to make it a point to visit there soon.

  2. I appreciate that you do view life in that way! What kind of flowers are they? (the wilting and fresh bloom) top shot is fabulous with such texture! the last orchid- stunning!

  4. I'm a lover of reflections - so your black and white made me happy! I really like that Japanese thought/quote/word (don't know which it is!) that there is beauty in both the blooming and wilting flowers. I think that's one of the things that I like most about this time of year - it's such a wonderful combination of the natural world's many stages.... And, when we were in Maine a couple of weeks ago I went out on a boat with our host as he pulled in his lobster pots - a whole new experience for me!!

  5. Your world is so lovely! Every picture and every word so full of joy. The reflections in the stone look like a precious Oriental screen print.

  7. Amazing photos and wonderful haiku. (I'm Japanese but I've never been very good at writing haiku, either in Japanese or English!) Cape Ann looks like a beautiful place.

  15. Orchids are my favourite flower - I will nearly always have them in the house, it keeps me connected to Asia, but today I think my favourite is the wabi - sabi because of the sentiments of the blooming and the wilting - Beautiful. Is that a hibiscus flower?

  17. Another nice series, and I learned a new term today - Wabi-Sabi - so thank you for that! I love seeing all this water and particularly like the granite rock with water reflection.
