The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~John Greer

You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams

The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen.

"I still find each day to short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see"

“We are all visitors to this time, this place.
We are just passing through.
Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then,
We return home.”

Nopal


-  iPhoneography  -

Nopal (also known as the Prickly Pear cactus) is from the Opuntia family. There are approximately one hundred and fourteen known species endemic to Mexico. They are particularly common in their native Mexico where the plant is a common ingredient in numerous Mexican cuisine dishes in which it can be eaten raw or cooked. It can be used in marmalades, soups stews and salads, as well as being used for traditional medicine or as fodder for animals. Farmed nopales are most often of the species Opuntia ficus-indica, although the pads of almost all Opuntia species are edible. The other part of the nopal cactus that is edible is the fruit called the tuna or more commonly known in the United States as Prickly Pear. [Wiki]

The natural form of an object which has not been altered or manipulated, but is in its' original form found in nature.
Through Art, natural form can be depicted as a representation of the original object.

The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us;
and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.
