Nature's Place


It’s not a feeling, more an absence. A state that can easily be read as negative though even that can’t be sustained, since there is nothing. This nothing has no will in it and so it is a peculiarity, a singularity. Nothing is undivided.

We’ll see. Nothing?


I tracked this ant around for a bit and was given a few decent shots. I say given because it keeps me in my place, there is a greater power in charge. Just look at the next creature that appears, it’s mere existence is a miracle – never mind that ‘Take up Thy bed and walk’ stuff.

Just look to see, if you can. And there it is, the miracle of sense. No religion required.

    NWMO=Northwest Missouri and we have 2 more inches of snow predicted for tonight and possibly more for the weekend…UGH!

      Snow is beautiful, lovely walking in it at night. Crunch under foot, crisp cold air in the nostrils. Sliding along the tracks. I was in Helsinki for a winter and it was magical. At minus 40 the air froze the moisture in my nostrils as it hit, no open mouth breathing recommended. No bugs to shoot too, though there are plenty of ice formations. :) And other things only snow reveals.

    These shots are fantastic… I’ll definitely be coming back to see more.

    (The words are pretty nice, too.)

    Superb photos, I especially love the first one. I must ask where do you live that you are still seeing so many insects? NWMO is nothing but cold and snow right now, I am ready for spring and more bugs!

      Thanks Mo. NWMO? Montana? I’m in Brisbane and summer is coming on. Even in winter here there are the flies to shoot.
