Komorebi

Komorebi is a Japanese word for sunlight that filters through leaves. I like the word and it fits many pictures I take and this site has a few more useful words which can take whole sentences in English. So with the word in mind I took some photographs yesterday as I was walking up a disused lane to a friend’s home to sit with her kids for a while. The sun was very bright at 9.30am and being August a bit lower in the sky so creating more interesting light patterns. I had black and white in mind when taking, but ended up using one colour here. These were taken on my phone and I was being tugged by my dog to move on! When taking these, I felt the pattern of trees and branches were like the magnificent Jackson Pollock Blue Poles painting.

  1. Dropping by every now and then, not seldom impressed by what my eyes see and read, but too lazy to let you know, I think it’s time to at least leave a short com(pli)ment.
    Herewith done.
    As one of your countrymen once wrote:
    The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination,nature is imagination itself.
    The peace of the night.
