“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world… as in being able to remake ourselves.” – Mahatma Gandhi
How did it happen that their lips came together?
How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds,
that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill?
A kiss, and all was said.”
— Victor Hugo
“Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.” ― Wallace Stevens
“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.” – Eric Sloane
Photography is a “mirror with a memory”. – Oliver Wendell Holmes
Before seeing this quote, I hadn’t realized that Oliver had such a strong interest in photography. He would have probably liked Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness posting later on today. Thanks to them and all of the talented contributors, every week has a diverse and interesting collaboration of monochrome photos for everyone’s viewing pleasure.
“A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” – Henry David Thoreau
