Wood Shark

.once up-on a time,
wood and kayak met a shark,
you decide who won
—by flp


I found this photo image while looking through some of my ramblings over the course
of last week. The following is the original photo before I started plying my tricks with the
photo. I have made this photo available first to my friends here at LBJ, before being posted
to some other sites. I hope you like this one as much as I do….I am going to have this
one also made into a large poster.

And so….here is a new update on the first photo above, where I have now stood those pines back up on their feet….hmmm.

Thank you.

Very nice,

You can book match wood, but you also do it with pictures, just as well.

With all the randomness of nature, there is also symmetry.

Thank you, Frank.

....great thanks for all your many comments made on the photo and also are the many who stopped by to view!

And I will also add to what Karson has noted. Thanks Karson for giving that extra bit of a comment where you stated, ”I think I like the first view best”.

Snowdog; I haven’t heard from you lately and so first of all let me say thanks for stopping by.

Next, allow me to add that I think I understand your comment where you say; ”all the noise in nature”. Getting through all the noise that we live with each day can be hard enough, but then we go out into the fields of nature and think that there should be silence out there//here. However the reality is that there is so much noise even in nature. I believe I read some-where that the average mind thinks 30,000 thoughts a day and all those thoughts are the result of a busy mind, creating much noise. From this understanding I have had some success at least in nature (which is the forest//woods) in being able to train my mind to stop listening to all the noise out there//here. And to tell the truth there is a forest of noise, which one must shut down, so as to be silent….and then one can really start seeing in nature all the glory, that has all-ways been there.

In truth I paint no-new pictures, since these pictures have all-ways been there, but the glory I bring forth from the woods is by first seeing and then interpreting their own story. In a way you might say that my job is that of a ’ghost writer’. Hmmm; now there is a thought I will think upon….might be a good blog story there, ’Ghost Writers for Nature’.
