missing All

6:58 AM Posted by James Owens







The missing All -- prevented Me
From missing minor Things.
If nothing larger than a World's
Departure from a Hinge --
Or Sun's extinction be observed --
'Twas not so large that I
Could lift my forehead from my work
For Curiosity.

Emily Dickinson

These are great. I like each one of them but together they are even better.

Krista said...

I agree... great combination of shots! They give a somewhat nostalgic feeling I think. I'm not sure I could tell you why, though.

Renee said...

I love these nature shots that you have posted--they make a nice little visual story :)

Lady Jo said...

Those thorns look lethal! I'm betwixt between the sunlit berries and the blue, blue water, today the berries win!

James: I’m glad you liked them. I’m always happy when a series works together to become something more than the individual shots.


Krista: I’ll have to think about the nostalgia. But all photographs are nostalgic in their way. They are elegy for the moment, never before, never again, never….


Renee: Thank you. These are the kinds of pictures I find myself drawn to, sometimes against my will, it seems…. Very few people here…..


LadyJo: Ces épines sont dangereuses, aussi! Mes plaies en font la preuve... J’ai grand plaisir de tes visites :-)


Martin: Thank you. A very clear, late-winter day, a time of the year that I love.


Anne: Merci pour cette citation. Tu as raison ... cette manque, un ciseau contre mon coeur...


Susan: Most living things are small, aren’t they? We are lumbering giants, with little idea what the world is really like.


Lissa: When I am at a loss for words (so often), I can always go to Dickinson…


Sorlil: Lethal, yes! I came away with a few scratches to prove it...

LadyFi said...

Lovely poem to go with your photos: you've captured the tiny miracles of life that often go unseen.

James Owens said...

LadyFi: Thank you. Very much goes unseen, I think. Empires rise and fall all around us, and we never see....

Randi said...

Another marvelous and beautiful post with gorgeous photos.
I wish you a Happy Easter!

James Owens said...

Randi: Thank you. A happy Easter to you, too!

Anna said...
