You first photo reminds of a "meeting" I once had with a deer in a small forest. I was sitting quietly on a rock when it suddenly appeared out of nowhere. We looked at each other - and it was gone. It was even more silent afterwards.

Rune, absolutely. Seems to me they always appear out of nowhere, and that's a big part of the charm.

Not to make every word ever written ME ME ME right now -- but, me.

The presence of morn. The present of morn. Collins got this one right.

Love your silence in this, Banjomyn. Your photos speak volumes.

Certain words by and of themselves just sound right. Silence is one of them. Contradiction? yes

Banjo52 said...

AH, I hear.

Brenda, I agree on B.C. And thanks.

PA, good irony. So yes, but just a technicality, doncha think?
