Graffitti

When I see Graffitti I often wonder what the artist went through, if in fact they were finished or abruptly interrupted.

I wonder “why a train car?” Perhaps because train cars, and alley ways, are tucked away, but traveled.

Each artist, creatively through font, color and design, gives to us messaging, meaning and form -beauty is in the eye of the beholder – a definite.

Wilmington was 1st explored by Giovanni da Verrazano and reported to French King Francis I in 1524. The City of Wilmington was founded in 1739. Rich in American history, politics and environment.

We are blessed to live in such a beautiful place!

Bridge to Nowhere

Over time things evolve and change. Our usual dusk hike led us to nowhere. The bridge, and path, have been closed off to the world. The end of the bridge is now boarded up.

However, if you venture to the end, you will experience nothing but pure, natural beauty!

There is beauty in all things…even in what may seem a dead end.

Mother of the King

I often ride my bike up to the marina or beach with my camera in my basket – seeking to find and shoot the “photo of the day.” Depending on the time of day, I will often find the pelicans patiently awaiting the charter fisherman’s cuttings to be tossed or the commercial fisherman’s scraps from the catch of the day.

Where I live the Brown Pelican will perch upon the pilon for a better view or to rest their wings before heading to one of the barriers islands for their nights sleep.

The Brown Pelican lives in a colonies. Soaring through the skies in a v-formation, the Pelican will search the waters for fish. They will dive bomb to achieve the catch and store in their pouch. The most beautiful sight is to watch in awe a colony of Pelicans flight along the shoreline as they swoop up and down, teasing the waterline with their force.

The Pelican often invites me to seek to understand a deeper more powerful meaning to life.

Your Quest (Albert Schweitzer)

Your Quest
I AM CONVINCED that far more idealistic
aspiration exists than is ever evident.
Just as the rivers we see are much less
numerous than the underground streams,
so the idealism that is visible is minor
compared to what men and woman carry
in their hearts, unreleased or scarcely
released. Mankind is waiting and longing
for those who can accomplish the task of
untying what is knotted and bringing the
underground waters to the surface.
– Albert Schweitzer
