  1. Just two little amazing stories hiking up a hill last week.
    The first is told by the ferns growing from under a rock, it tells somethnig about survival on the edge.

    The second story is one from a tree that hangs on by growing its roots as far as needed. Beyond it, opens a path of light.

  2. Hmm, I think the second is the story of my life lately. I've had a lot of challenges of late, and that photo really speaks to me. Thanks for sharing.
     
  3. Very nice Christian, i like black and white.

    Oh yeah - that tree in black and white is great! Really looks like B&W should. The ferns are a nice use of color too, but the roots are da bomb.

    Christian I like them both and the story they tell. Sometimes I think grew out of the bottom of a rock :>)))

    and determined to see the light as the roots help to hold me up.
     
  6. I am late in responding. I was out for a little vacation, bicycling along the Gatineau River. It's a soothing sign when mundane things start to have a positive meaning to you.
     
  7. Thanks Chris. Really wish I had a little more DR on the B&W though. I keep my F/N80 just for that, but I'm a little too lazy (and environmentally conscious) to drain my own chemicals, so I use the chromogenic films.
     
  8. Gale, as it is, you've got to be of the sturdiest. Keep on hangin'on.
