Evermore


A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

~ John Keats

  4. I have continued to walk about Mary's garden and breathe in the air of things that were, that will come again, to see new flower shoots next to last year's stalks (her garden took 2nd place to other things last year). I have heard this quote many times, and never really got it until today. Thank you for the lesson - at last! - and this fragile, fragile picture. It's just wonderful.

  6. Jaime, I just love the image at the top of your blog. I can't stop looking at it. The blue is absolutely mesmerizing. All your other photography is amazing as well, but that one always makes me pause before reading your posts. Thank you for inspiring me with it each time I log on. (: Vicki

    I happened to drop by at this blog by accident. And I was captivated by the beauty of pictures included in every post especially this one. My breathe was literally taken away by the picture and poem combined.

    May I ask, is this pure photography or do you edit it first before you publish it here? And if you edit your pictures, what do you use?
