“All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud, you have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” – Gail Devers
Determination is just one thing that the color orange represents.
Tonight begins a journey with the Lily. Historically, the Lily has represented majesty. In some parts of history it can be found that Lilies of various colors represent something other than, or in addition to, majesty. For example, the white Lily, as I posted last week, represents purity and virtue. Throughout the 2013 Lily series you will see Lilies of varying color as well as black and white images of Lilies. The Lily itself is a magnificent flower. It can be a challenge to photograph, but if you have wonderful natural light, those challenges seem to fade to artistic creation. I hope you enjoy the series and look forward to your comments and feedback.
