We have a lot of ice and sleet and while it looks like a bit of a winter wonderland. The cold air cuts through my recovering lungs like a razor. So, I am kind of stuck inside with the warmth of a fire and my loving wife.
While looking through images gone past, I found an interesting pair of matching designs from two totally different origins. The one on the left is a New Mexico designed door, and the image on the right is a God designed assassin beetle.
Kind of makes you aware of where the grand sense of design begins. ††† en theos ††† jim
Oh how the rain has fallen in the desert. We had almost an inch and a half today and the temp is in the fifties. There is enough of a chill in the morning to force me into my winter robe. Not that I am complaining.
With the moisture has come all kinds of different makings of God’s divine design. I had photographed this toadstool from when it first broke ground. I did it wet, I did it dry. I prayed for a little toad to come sit under or on it, but that never happened. I was walking away in my soaked clothes from laying flat on my belly when I heard a whisper tell me that the real beauty is underneath. So I gently lifted it from the ground and took it in my little studio for a look. Sure enough, the underside was of a grand design and conception with a hint of orange to it.
I laid it directly over a small portable flash to shine through the cap and just had a field day of capturing the symmetry, design and color. What a great 65th birthday gift from the Maker.
If it doesn’t look good from above, look underneath! ††† en theos ††† jimwork
More magic of the doors & gates of New Mexico.
It just blows me away at how creative folks can be and work with what materials they are given. Some might see this as junky and it probably wouldn’t pass code in all townships.
I find a sense of design and order in the clutter of it all. It makes me smile and plays music to my eyes.†††††en theos……jim
