I’ve always found earth patterns fascinating.
Sometimes random, other times symmetrical, other abstract…
On my walks I always see things that will catch my eye, mostly looking up.
However sometimes, it’s the …little things that make me smile!
All the following shots were taken from the same place. The path down the hill, the paved part. After the dry season of summer and a rainy couple of months, little green creatures are beginning to appear between the cracks. Like shy little beings popping their tiny heads wondering if it’s okay to stay and grow the family here! And they do. A little further down, more tiny green fluffies grow. Ah, they do make me smile. It’s true, it’s the little things…
Enjoy a beautiful Wednesday everyone.
Remember beauty is everywhere when you keep your eyes and mind open.

I was thinking of relocating Mark Armstrong Illustration to one of Saturn’s moons (I’ve heard they have great ambrosia out there), but this wonderful post has made me reconsider: Earth is too beautiful to leave, especially when it is graced with a photographer extraordinaire who is so attuned to its beauties… 🌍🌷👍😊
Now, that is good news indeed! I could never imagine Earth without Mark Armstrong! The ambrosia factory is working overtime! 🙏🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🙏
This is such a great series.
We finally have sun today!!!! I can take the rest of my Mosaic rt Gown pics!

Love these; so beautiful! Yes, we must take notice of the small things, my friend 🙂 xx
Yes… and I know you do!!! 🙂 xoxo
There is so much beauty within our reach. Thank you for reminding me to immerse myself in the joy and creativity of the moment,
Oh, so happy to hear that! We all need that reminder from time to time. With our everyday ‘busy brains’ we tend to forget! 😉 xoxoxo
They do forget! That is why we need friends, like you, to remind us to leave our busy world even if it is only for a few moments!! Hugs!
🙂 xoxoxo Many hugs back! 🙂 xoxo
You are the best photographer Marina. You’ve captured this so well and beautifully breathtaking. 🙂
Ah, Charlie… you flatter me way too much! 😉 As I’ve mentioned in the past, I don’t consider myself a photographer, after all these were taken with my phone camera… but I love taking them as visual notes! 😉 Thank you so much, my friend! 🙂
My advice to you. Keep taking more photography like this. You are incredibly visual and you capture every detail and every in depth emotion of our planet.
You are welcome my friend. 🙂
What a beautiful thing to say… Thank you so much, my kind friend! 😊😊😊
You are very welcome. 🙂
I’ll be back next Monday. Got family here for the holidays. You have a Happy healthy thanksgiving. 🙂
Forgive me for my self-indulgence but your post reminded me of an old photo I had to dig up on my HD! Just had to share… https://mclark.wordpress.com/2019/11/20/me-and-my-shadow/ 😊
…and a beautiful photo it is too! So glad I triggered fond memories! 🙂
Someday I’ll share a recent one, full of water… its natural state. 😊
Artistic eyes never rest! Good catches – and thanks for the music of a bygone era.
Bygone but not forgotten! 😉 Thank you, my friend!!! 🙂 Yamas and Happy Hump Day! 🙂
Nature is a marvelous artist 💜💜
Oh, she is indeed!!!!! ❤🌺
These are really beautiful – they could be easily missed. I love that you have taken your time to spot and photograph these wonderful patterns.
Thank you, my friend. I truly appreciate this compliment, from you especially. We miss so much every day. Pass by little beauties without even noticing them.
I always find my photos are best when I am somewhere I don’t know as I seem to notice more, I think we easily get used to what we see every day and don’t see it as interesting.
I agree with you. So do I, however it works the other way round too. For example, after I returned from that hill, I began noticing that those greenies where in most pavements on the streets and some where even more beautiful! So, I suppose that it’s a process that once you set it off you keep noticing more! 😉 I know you know from experience and from your wonderful photos! 🙂
That is so kind thank you 😀😀
Truth!!!!! 🙂 🙂
