Brandy Day178: Take It All In

image

As the sun sets on another day I remind myself tomorrow is not promised. Have you ever just sat and watched the sun set?! Taking it all in. Just look at this photo for awhile. The quiet scene. The nature. The growing ivy climbing up the tree. The movement of the water in rhythmic motion. The clouds rushing the sun into hiding. The sun bursting through the bark on the side of the tree. The sound of crickets chattering as night becomes alive.
‘How beautiful is it to live in a world where nothing lasts forever. We must learn to fall in love with the love inside us, only then every moment living will be worth dying for.’ (R.M. Drake)

Brandy Day49: Secrets of History

image

Found this gem the other day while out driving and knew it would hold a beautiful photo at night under the stars. Its all I could think about while at work, hoping the clouds would break and the stars would be bright. Just as I hoped the clouds opened the stars glowed and the moon made a guest appearance. I felt a little odd shooting this as its in someone front yard, but I couldn’t pass it up. I made it quick and was still able to get the shot I wanted.
It was only after I got home and viewed the photo, that I fell more in love. ‘1887’ is on the roof. Wow! What this little house has held, seen and will never share. 127 years. Unfathomable. The bricks still hold the words once spoke here. The windows watch new life come and go. The ivy grows stronger every year guarding and locking the hidden secrets never to be shared. The trees stand taller than the years before guarding and protecting.
Shot in awe on a country road, once slowly traveled by history.
