The Feathered Moment Hand........

 
A discovered moment
Fleetingly present
Untamed in the spontaneity

This is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I gasped when I saw this photo. It speaks to me of all the wonder around us that we can see if we open our eyes, wonder that is always there and yet so fleeting if we don't look.

We must awaken to see every single precious moment. This photo would take much reflection for me to fully grasp the entire weight it carries, the inspiration it IMMEDIATELY coveys upon one glance at it. I think it is the best you have ever done. I've never seen anything like it.

That tiny little gull could almost be overlooked at a quick glance and yet there it stands in the palm of your hand. Like Life, so often overlooked and yet in reality it is right there in the palm of our hand. We need only slow down and see.

Simply beautiful!!

robin,
Mille grazie--you have captured an essence of what i was trying to extend with the words and the image.
there are of course many layers and many perceptions in the simplicity and the complexity of a image like this.
in many cases this is a mere catalyst for each and all to extrude their own wonderful meanings.
LIFE is so very fragile that when one realises the urgency of embracing the gift it opens up a new dimension.
Thank you once again for sharing--it is much appreciated!
