Photographic Meditations Part II

I was so thrilled by the favorable response to the first set of photographic meditations that I thought it was high time I presented another round of photographic meditations, a collaborative endeavor which combines my photography with Marty Rubin’s inspiring, thought-provoking aphorisms. Enjoy!

Cast yourself upon the water. Trust in your ability to swim.


The sea will wash away our footprints but not the fact we made them.


You don’t know how to live. You live.


The deep roots never doubt spring will come.


Water flows because it is willing.


Where would you be if you left all your troubles behind.


Appreciation, not possession, makes a thing ours.


I found all my prayers answered in the silence of the stone.


I never reach those far-off places. New trails tempt me at every turn.


Getting lost is part of getting there.


If you’re in a hurry….don’t go.


Looking in the mirror is seeing what other people see.

There are some difficulties with my link’s configuration to Marty’s site so a link is also available under Nothing Profound in my blogroll


(No images were altered in anyway by photoshopping)

One can still create a little magic with old-fashion techniques


*Your comments are extremely valuable to me. Since there still may be some difficulties with this comment page (the add part), please feel welcomed to comment in blogcatalog review section as well. Thanks!

    Loved the second aphorism and photograph in particular.

    Photographic meditations is such a great way to describe the feel of these photographs.

    Excellent, simply excellent. You did a great job of visually showing the aphorisms through photography.

    Very well done, again.
