Travel Theme : Minimalist


Looking through my photos I have found a few that I would call “minimalist”.



A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I’ll be darned if I know how the hellican?”
Dixon Lanier Merritt



That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone, that we are more deeply inserted into existence than the course of a single life would lead us to believe.

To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.

The beauty of trees silhouetted by the mystical rays of the setting sun.

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”

– Carl R. Rogers

Minimalism is not a lack of something. It’s simply the perfect amount of something. – Nicholas Burroughs

  1. shazam! with a faster internett at my friends house, all of the images loaded, and they[re all beautiful! the pelican makes a great opening image! z

  2. What a difference a good connection can make to our computing experience. I’ll send you my wishes for a faster connection next year.

  3. I like them all – but the first one – that bird! got me and kept me – so clear and such a large image – 🙂 ❤

    • Thanks for the comment Y. I love pelicans they are sort of the clowns of the bird world, but so graceful once they are in the air.

      • yeah, I never heard it put that way – and seeing them fly is so beautiful! hope you are having a nice weekend (almost over on this side of the world) and wish we could sit down and have some tea – … 🙂

        • It is almost lunch time on Monday over here. I would love to have you call in for a cuppa, wouldn’t that be fun… 🙂

          • and then a fresh veggie picked from your garden – lol – guess I can just dream a little… have a great rest of your day….

            • Ah yes, the garden. It has rained steadily for 3-4 days and the vegies are going feral, also a swarm of baby grass hoppers and caterpillars are moving in and having a feast,,, 😦 I’ve just been taking end of month photos

            • well I look forward to some pics – and sorry about the feasting critters…
