Look at each element…

Blended designs…


Building design is the art of an architect. Observing building details, both inside and outside is a pastime of students, historians, engineers, and appreciative novices. The compressed population of buildings in downtown Chicago yields unplanned design elements. Quality of these inadvertent designs are left to the observer, professional and amateur.

Dense stillness…


Quiet moments gazing at the wet forest floor that edges Volo Bog. Still and single in color, yet richly active with textures and diversity. Mosses, ferns, mushroom, and more….

Blushing beauty…


I am sharing one more image of one of my Peonies in bloom. The slightly rosy hue on the innermost petals provide a hint of the delicacy of the bloom. The layers of this bloom seem to go on and on, fashioning opulent complexity in this single flower.

Gentle layers of splendor…

The slight blush of pink on the perfumed pedals show a softer charm than the deeper pink Peony from my prior post (Layers of Love…).

Both Peony varieties are rich in complexity.
