Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Smallest of creatures
Leave fragile marks on this world
Fleeting footfalls

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #24: Footfalls

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  2. Thank you! Not sure what kind of critter it was (suspect an insect of sorts) but it left an interesting track.

  3. This is an incredible photo. I kept looking for more in it…It suggests much more than the sum of its elements.

  4. Cool picture. Landscape looks very stark but also organic, alive, undulating. Nice poem along with.

  5. The ambiguity of scale is intriguing. At 1st glance, the photo looks like an aerial view of a desert landscape, with a few hardy shrubs like creosote bush and the tracks of somebody’s ATV.

  6. Great point on perspective I had not noticed or considered because I knew the actual scale. The shrubs are actually very small plants and the prints are teeny tiny. What a great lesson for me to try to see with unbiased eyes and not preconceived notions.
