Inspiration Avenue: Imagine/Imagination

Skyward, December 12, 2009 - Nikon D40 with 55 mm lens


I can imagine anything when I'm looking toward the sky. It is as though all limitation slips away when contemplating something so immense. Words fail. But I try anyway.

Please head on over to Inspiration Avenue and enjoy everyone's submissions.

This is lovely Chris! There's a quote - I've forgotten the exact words but it's something like "there are 2 types of people, one type sees pictures in the clouds, the other just sees clouds". I guess we're both type 1!

I'm imagining a hot summer's afternoon with nothing better to do than lie back on the grass and look up at the perfect blue. Lovely!

Chris said...

Thank you, ladies!

artangel - Ooh, I love that quote! And you're right, we are!

Stephanie - I'm the girl who trips over something because she's staring at the sky all the time.

WrightStuff - Heh. Well, it was 78 degrees when I took this picture a few hour ago. Florida's version of winter.

Shel - Oh I love that: Color Therapy. For me photography is all about color and light. I tend to look at everything as how it would look in a photograph, and I'm always noticing the light. Natural light is always the best.
