MEANDER #9 Saturday 8 July 2017 Some say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Given that sentiment, this week I’m posting 10,000 words worth of pictures, plus featured and bonus images.
Don’t get me wrong. For me, words carry as much currency as do images, especially words that show more than tell. Words that can be exhaustive, not exhausting. Crisp words. Honest words. Calming words, Rousing words. Modest words. Words that work.
A thousand words that tell the beauty of birds and birdsong. A thousand words that convey the surprise of finding a centipede and a host of swarming ants on your path. A thousand words that capture the sight of a bald eagle better than the out-of-focus image below. A thousand words that pile up pleasantly like turtles on a log. A thousand words that recall a day when farmers used binders to cut wheat and many hands to stook it. A thousand words that erupt like fireworks. A thousand words that carry the in-between life of a water lily.
Without further adieu, here are ten images tasked with conveying a sense of the week. Best!
Bonus picture, adding a word or two
Fare thee well!
May you find continuing picturesque paths to meander that nourish body, mind and spirit.
The featured image is another sculpture by Seward Johnson. It is located next to a quilt garden at Ruthmere Museum in Elkhart. Quilt gardens, now there’s a subject to capture on camera in the near future.
