Semi Truck Carrying Amusement Park Rides

passed a semi on the highway carrying pieces of amusement park rides. i was not the one driving the car. i did roll down my window though.

By the Troll Bar and 2nd Street in Louisville

linear and atmospheric perspective. and here i thought i forgot all the fancy words i knew after college.

Last Flowers of Late May

Photo of small white flowers decaying in late May

looks like popcorn, could be because I’m hungry. a bit dutch still-lifey this is.

Photo of a tree flowering

this seems like a photo of a tree that goes on a cover of a book. but, alas, i am no dendrologist

Photo of light purple flowers

color over composition. this could be one of those pinterest color palette nature inspiration things. if i cared.

The Park in March

photo of trees tinted red at sunset with the moon

these were taken back in march. red trees are creepy to me, makes me wonder what color the sap would be.

if i were a person who liked to fish, i assume this would be the sense of peace i searched for

photo of a tree's bark peeling in early spring

this appeals to me visually. if i explain it i think it will make the weird tree bark magic go away. i have no clue why i like this. blah, blah no accounting for tastes or whatevs.

photo of decaying tree bark by the riverbed

the dead fraying bark looks like corn husks. i never thought there could be more than two shades of brown.

White Leaves in Spring

i went out looking for signs of spring. instead i found these pale colored leaves, bleached, but hanging on.

i like this semi-see through color they have, not quite white, but a transparent pale yellow.

no buds on the tree yet, no signs of the their replacements in sight.

Another One Told Me This

Don’t tell me to think I’m beautiful,
Like it’s a gift,
Like I should,
Because you’re the first to say it, you think.
My strength comes from me.
Don’t lecture me about how pretty I am.
I’m not very pretty.
It’s fine.
It doesn’t bother me anymore.
It just is.
You can say all women are beautiful.
But it’s a line you think you should say.
You don’t know me well enough to say I’m beautiful.
You think all women should think they’re beautiful.
Like all people should have confidence.
And that you’re God’s gift because you can tell this girl
This one right here
How pretty she is.
And that will make it all better
You can fix her sadness if she knows she’s pretty.

Fall Colors for the Eyes

photo of a bus with yellowing leaves

here we see the majesty of the little shrub turned yellow by lack of sun. look at the pretty way it’s leaves decay and die.

photo of red berry tree

ah, the tree with the little red berries, how they add bits of color so nice and bold in such a small green world

photo of a tree with coloring leaves

pale pink leaves stick to the thin tree, the tree who’s arms wave to say hello traveler, check out my waving limbs
