Beauty Has a Forked Tongue

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
–Robert Brault

This is another one of James’ Phalaenopsis orchids that’s blooming right now. This one was a gift from canine celebrity Hairy Putter‘s dads, on the occasion of their move from Utah to California. They had to leave it behind due to California’s prohibition against bringing plants across the state line. I hope you like the photo.

The Corruption of Beauty

“The first sign of corruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means.”
— Georges Bernanos

Seeing that my Gun Control? post went over like a fart in church, today’s photo is an attempt at some abstract redemption. This is one of those rare photos where a title and complete concept for how I would process it came together instantly and spontaneously on first view of the RAW image file. I love that.

James bought this orchid last summer when the cancer was briefly in remission. As it is now in bloom for the first time since its purchase, I thought it was a good subject for a Valentine’s Day photo. I wish he could have seen it bloom.
