Japanese Garden



Tea House




"Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

I'm sending this quote to my daughter, who is a professional photographer and she's so artistic about catching "the moment" in photography. Yours is fabulous, besides the fact that I love (all oriental) Japapanese screens, elements, homes and gardens as well. Have a happy week.

Mesmerizing view; can't take my eyes away. Could it be the red, fall leaves? Oh, I miss autumn! More heat coming our way too.

Love the pink zinnias, always a sign that the Southeast Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot would be just around the corner.

Stay cool, my friend.

What a tranquil setting! I can feel my blood pressure and heart rate go down just looking at it, and imaginging the song of the birds in the wood.

Lovely photo, Snap!
