Making your own pattern

Sometimes in the middle of winter

I like to nourish myself

With the patterns and colours

And silhouettes of vibrant summer.

This shot reminds me that

You don’t always have to go with the flow –

Going against it can also create beauty.

Summery memory

    Going against it can also create beauty………….I’ll take two t-shirts with this on it, if I was brave and am not , a tattoo even.

  7. Whether going with the flow or against the flow, when you create or capture beauty like this, you’re definitely IN the flow! This is absolutely stunning. (Funny, my next planned SkyWatch Friday post are of summer skies too! But they’re nothing like this.)
