A Little Sorrow



"We do not live an equal life, but one of contrasts and patchwork; now a little joy, then a little sorrow, now a sin, then a generous or brave action."

You have such an uncanny ability to choose just the right photograph and pair it with the perfect combination of words.

lovely shot Mary.
now did you do any texturing to it?

Mary said...

Yes, there is definitely a texture added. There are a lot of free textures available on flickr. This one is from a flickr user called ghostbones.

I'm living that quote, at the moment. That is a stunning photo that looks like a masterful painting. Gorgeous!

Char said...

the ghostbones textures are the best - I love them. Beautiful work and as CG, a beautiful pairing of image and words.

Kacey said...

Wow, perfect words for the photo! I try to do that with my Life in Focus posts on my blog, but you really seem to have it nailed. Love this photo!

Laurie said...

Post card perfection. This is quite lovely.

What beautiful trees - there's something about dark branches outlined with snow or ice, every delicate curve and scroll is revealed in a whole new way.

I'm like driving down country roads. It does take me to a younger time. :)

Have you ever seen something so beautiful that you are speechless or been "at a loss for words?" There are just certain things that touch us at times and there are no words to express the feelings that are brought to the surface. I realize I am not saying this well, but when I visit your site..and see your photographs I have feelings that I cannot put into words.
