Beautiful iPhone Photography

I’ve become mesmerized lately by following the
magical work of Richard Koci Hernandez.
H
is photos tell a magical, mysterious story and
I can’t get enough. Every day I look forward to his
latest post on Instagram. Take time to enjoy it.

“The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.”
Joseph B. Wirthlin

“Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.” Albert Camus

Beautiful iPhone Photography

Thanks to the wonderful word of Instagram,
artful photography has never been so user
friendly. Everybody can do it – even the
mini Lego peeps. U.K.-based photographer
Andrew Whyte reveals the world through
the lens of a Lego man who is obviously
having adventures of his own whether it be
climbing a fence or slipping on a banana peel.
My favorite?  The diminutive little man
facing a lonely bench looming in the
background. Enjoy more Legography here.

Beautiful Nature

Lounging in the grass, not doing much of
anything except enjoying the moment
with an iPhone and a cluster of random
daisies. They grow everywhere in the wild.
I couldn’t resist taking these shots on a
lazy summer day and searching for the
perfect poem.

Daisy Time
See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness.

Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies’ dance
All the meadow over.

Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
Singing summer’s praises,
Up the field and down the field
A-dancing with the daisies.

Beautiful, Bright & Merry 2014

May your 2014 be merry and bright.

And always remember:
If at some point you don’t ask yourself,
“What have I gotten myself into?”
then you’re not doing it right.
