I see a wise old one with a huge ear in that first image. The little tiny eye and big nose and open mouth. Funny little person.

and I'm sick of proving I'm not a robot, but I'm getting so much spam since I took this thing off my blog :(

Gorgeous...all of them...but the last one...oh the last one!

kaiteM said...

fossilized ram's head?

ronnie said...

Lynn said...

Sometimes it's the micro that can make all the difference.
There's a lesson in here I think I need today.
Thank you!

aimee, isn't vision an amazing thing? also cameras!
valerie, ahh!
nancy, yes, it dried nicely
kaite, a burl
ronnie, !!!
lynn, i like to get close for sure

india flint said...

am guessing that's paper
but
it looks like concrete

Jennifer said...

What delights one sees when taking a good close look. Love the change in perspective and the possibilities offered...especially from the tribute the wise one was left in the first photo.

Velma Bolyard said...

india, the flax is almost as strong as concrete...almost
jennifer, i've been working on looking big, but small and up close is so satisfying.

that last image is wonderful. when i was teaching the little ones, we used to wrinkle up paper and then tell stories about 'what we see'.

Velma Bolyard said...

deanna that is a great project! and thanks.

kaiteM said...

yes i realise it's a burl, but if you squint really hard it's a fossilized ram's head.

Velma Bolyard said...

kaite, good eyes

anastasia said...

the burl reminds me of a head of a tortoise eating grass, or taking a nap. enjoy your reading, and don't get too snowbound!

Velma Bolyard said...
