Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Forest Memories



I bow before trees
Below their stately presence
Stand diminutive


In honor of trees
Putting my fond memories
In a small dove egg

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #118: Diminutive
I have a newfound respect for Jennifer Wells

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.

  1. <smile> Yes, creating miniatures, then working with them in macro — that is a talent and Jennifer is a master.

    Wonderful pairing of images with the words (and the season 😉 ). Sweet post. =)

  8. Most of the ones I have been posting were older ones she did from way back when taken last year. This year she designed and I executed the assembly. The tree is the only one I posted that I put together for myself. I am hoping she has unpacked more of her older ones today so I can take more photos of her really cool eggs.
