Inspired by Dutch goes the Photo: Connect

…your challenge is to capture anything that either connects or with which you feel connected.


connect branches

A sea of mismatched branches growing en mass caught my eye this weekend – as I was walking alone in the woods. Not another soul in sight.

All balanced just so…yet not making any sense to me.

I couldn’t help but wonder…why (or how) the branches came to grow in such a way. Haphazardly entwined and still surviving. What happened? A confusing sight to which I felt oddly drawn to. Snapping photo after photo.

Was nature imitating life in this current upside down world?

Forging a way to connect, however tenuously. Reaching out. Over and under and through the unknown. Despite the obstacles.

Somehow holding on.

  1. I love this photo! Beauty is its own truth, I think, and its own meaning.

    You really have such a fine eye … I really love the things you take pictures of, for the most part. So do lots of other folks, apparently! I think this one is really special.

    1. Thank you. I also love your comment: “Beauty is its own truth…” I think that really crystallizes what pulled me in. Thanks too for your kind words. I am glad you “see” what I see in what I photograph – This one was extra special to me too. 🙂


  2. WOW, this a fabulous post–I love the way your thoughts flow; and to me, the photo is most beautiful, suggesting quiet strength, perhaps?

      1. You’re most welcome–your photos are different from many others…I always look at them and ponder, as there’s more to see than what’s one the surface.
