Reflections of Cypress

“To love a swamp, however, is to love what is muted and marginal, what exists in the shadows, what shoulders its way out of mud and scurries along the damp edges of what is most commonly praised. And sometimes its invisibility is a blessing. Swamps and bogs are places of transition and wild growth, breeding grounds, experimental labs where organisms and ideas have the luxury of being out of the spotlight, where the imagination can mutate and mate, send tendrils into and out of the water.”
― Barbara Hurd,
Stirring the Mud: On Swamps, Bogs, and Human Imagination

I promised this post would be brighter than my last one but I never said it would be colorful! I hope you like it.

  1. It’s so interesting to see a photo of a swamp in b&w. In my humble opinion, it adds to the ‘mysterious’ quality 🙂 I really envy that you can visit such amazing places in-person. Maybe I’ll have an opportunity to visit Florida someday 🙂


    1. Thank you, Takami. I also thought B&W added a touch of mystery to the scene of this beautiful cypress swamp. I hope you do make it to Florida one day, and when that day comes, be sure to give me a call so I can meet you and your husband! 😉


      1. Thank you for your reply Earl! It would indeed be wonderful if my husband & I can meet you someday. Maybe you can visit us in Japan too 🙂 Well, I’ll keep hope!
