You are never too young to be a patriot!

0525_jprphotos_2320

Memorial Day has special meaning to many.  Here is the serious face of a small child with his hand over his heart.  I could not resist the shot.  As a photographer I sometimes exempt myself from the duties of a citizen, like hand over heart and standing at attention.    Especially when I see patriotic training and forbearance has taken over and has been taught to our young people.  These are the people of the future.

A Lake in the beginning of Spring

 

The-Lake

To get out and walk around after a day in the house.  Sometimes I just have to take the photo to get it out of my system.  The fresh air is great and the coldness of a beginning spring is great for my lungs.  This spring does not seem to be bringing too much newness just a little darkness almost like fall.

The Last Moments of Fall

jprphotos_WIfall It is the last moments of fall.  Autumn came and is almost gone.  The crisp air is almost the strong winter wind that takes our breath away.  The calm and quiet of fall is giving way to the lonely and desolate days of winter.  The sky is colder looking, the ground is harder and the grass is dying.  Leaves left on the ground lie in wait to deaden the grass underneath.  It is not the end, instead the continuation of a life cycle that continues on whether we are hear to see it or not.
