Especially in the Summer Palace, you could see words like Longevity in many names of the buildings. So, this Hall of Celebrating Virtues was no exception... continue reading

The spiral symbol

In the rites and myths of many cultures has been crucial, and still has. Let's analyze a little 'to obtain a summary of meanings.To the Celts, for whom culture was one of the key symbols: the spiral had a double meaning, which depended on the left-right motion, or otherwise. The first depicts the motion of the Sun in the sky, the second is related to the flow of Water and the Earth Goddess. Covered from the inside out, is the reconnection to the deity, the opposite is the knowledge of themselves.... continue reading

Common Robin Often Overlooked

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is so common to most of North America that it is often overlooked as the subject for photographers.Their natural tendency to not be easily startled or distracted by nearby human activity makes them excellent subjects for highly detailed close-up photography.On two different occasions, I took these sharp, clear, vivid photos right in my own front yard, less than 25 feet from my house, and less than 10 feet away from the robin.In the photo of the robin on... continue reading

Otherworldly, Drop Dead Gorgeous Sedona, Arizona
