the un-lilies

I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for

may for once spring clear
without my contriving.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~
(only part of the poem)


  1. These are the loveliest of lovely. That first one seems to be dancing. The second, bowing humbly. The third, having a conversation with the leaves. These are my favorites of your photos so far.

  2. kass-thank you! i do so appreciate your support and feedback. funny you should mention conversation-i get the same impression in a lot of my shots. it's all about relationships, in one form or another, and how we dance them.

  3. These photos literally took my breath away, made me gasp when I came to the page. I would buy these and frame them. If I had a better printer I would try to make copies. Do you protect your photos?

    I just noticed your quote of the day. I'm wondering how many of these I've missed....

    This one is especially meaningful to me today. Coincidence?.....

    The honest truth.........I'm REALLY wondering if indeed I don't like it. Which translation of The Tao are you using? It feels like I'm reading these words for the first time.

    Just great! Much appreciated.

  4. gj-wow. i didn't think they were THAT good! thanks!
    seems you've had a couple of tough days lately. may the tide turn soon!

    the only photo protection i use is the statement at the top of the blog about the photos being copyrighted. don't really know what else to do.

    and no, i'm not crazy about this particular translation either. i've got 3, none of them really do it for me. the search continues.
