a different light

believe it or not, both of these photos were taken on the same day within 2 or 3 minutes of each other. the difference? one is taken facing north and one is taken facing south. i absolutely love the contrast between these 2 photos. it was one of those delightful serendipitous moments when i shot them. the sunny side photo was taken first and as i walked past i looked to see what the back view revealed and liked it even better. isn't life a lot like that? doesn't time, maturity and perspective let us look back on events and see them in a completely different light?

take care, my friends!

Just had a few minutes to catch up with your blog.
These photos, actually all your photos, are fabulous! And I love the metaphor in this post. Maturity does have it's advantages. Love the wine piece you did, too!

I completely agree with you that life should be lived to the fullest, and blogging should take a back-seat to many things. It does have a tendency to take up too much time, doesn't it?

I hope everything continues to work out for you in your job situation.

Nice contrasting views, even better application of the principal of the way things appear to us.

Wow, what a big difference. It also shows how two people can see things so completely differently. It just depends on where you are standing. I love the brilliant blue in the sunny pic and the clouds in the other.

It is amazing what perspective can do... I think this is a lesson learned for all... when making any decision we should step back and look at things from another's perspective, from a different viewpoint... although this isn't always EASY to do!
