... a pure space ...

"A pure space appears before us
where flowers ceaselessly open."

Rainer Maria Rilke

"Everything that grows
Holds in perfection
But a little moment."

Shakespeare:  Sonnet 15

"Someday it will help
to remember
even this."



  1. These are all so lovely. Don't you love Rad lab, so easy and so fun. I love that clematis and what a great shot you got.

  2. glorious photos and treatment!

  3. Love that quote. Beautiful processing on lovely shots

  4. what beautiful flowers. are they from your garden? love the treatment you did in RadLab... have a great night~

  5. They're all beautiful photos but I'm particularly taken with the two sharpened versions: They exude life and vibrant energy. That Virgil quote will be written in my little notebook to refer back to as a reminder at appropriate times.

  6. If only Rilke's words true for me! But, I can enjoy "flowers ceaselessly opening" here and I thank you for that. I long to feast my eyes on such colors, touch those soft petals, and smell the fragrances...

  7. wow you really take beautiful pictures! The colours are amazing!

  8. Gorgeous images, each and every one! I don't know what I'd do without Radlab - I love it and use it every day.

  9. HI BONNIE - beautiful pictures - beyond beautiful and words to enhance. "thank you" stop by and see our garden over at my blog if u get a moment.
    Love Gail

  10. I really like your original photograph, but (and I hope you don't mind me saying) in the Rab Lab it is blown out, the clementis is a great photograph and edit. I had better give you hug after all of this. Cheers
