Savanna Afternoon

Savanna Afternoon

I tried to bring out the orange from the parking lights to drown out the cars in the background in order to make it appear like one of those typical African savanna sunset/rise images, but I couldn’t get it any brighter without completely blowing it out.

Still like the way it turned out though.

Rest and Relaxation

Rest and Relaxation

Every now and then it’s good to just sit back and relax.

Rest and Relaxation, everyone needs it, but we often put it off in order to fit more and more work into our already busy schedules.

Take some time for yourself.

Pressure

Pressure

Thirty spokes converge upon a single hub;
It is on the hole in the center that the use of the cart hinges.

We make a vessel from a lump of clay;
It is the empty space within the vessel that makes it useful.

But it is these empty spaces that make the room livable.

Thus, while the tangible has advantages,
It is the intangible that makes it useful.

-Lao Tzu, Tao Teh Ching
