No Space for Ducks

Black's Nook, Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Lotuses have overgrown the nook... no space for ducks...
   ... I see a frog...

Zea, We call her Corn

Foss Farm, Carlisle, Massachusetts

One of the most widely loved grasses we call corn.
Devised and grown by humans, she only lives with our help and feeds us in exchange.
Corn cobs are well known,
  but the fields where these grasses reside are at some place unknown... 

Foss Farm: ... corn only lives with human help...

Foss Farm: ... and feeds us in exchange...

Foss Farm: ... with winds in their grassy hearts...

Foss Farm: ... autumnal colorings...

Foss Farm: ... corn cobs are well known...

Foss Farm: ... but the fields where these grasses reside are at some place unknown...

Protected Land Shines

Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge & Greenough Land, Carlisle, Massachusetts

Strolling the protected grounds of Carlisle...

  Put to use by Musketaquid Indians and later-on by European settlers,
  with the long history of service to humans, the land had lost the right to mold self well-being.
  And then one day,
  the Carlisle townsmen decided to protect these pieces and return the land to Nature...

... it is sunny today...
... the sun-rays beam down the multi-layered network of forms and colors...
... passing, breaking, reflecting unfettered, glowing lushness...

Carlisle: ... strolling the protected grounds...

Carlisle: ... where trees live-on after dying...

Carlisle: ... shades of green flood the space...

Carlisle: ... and Concord River moves along...

Carlisle: ... quietly...

Carlisle: ... noted by ferns...

Carlisle: ... and clouds...

Carlisle: ... where nature plunges into herself...

Carlisle: ... and heron knows that it is just a play...

Carlisle: ... beaver likes it on the edge of physical and pictorial...

Carlisle: ... proudly vertical...

Carlisle: ... reaching for the heights...

Carlisle: ... to be the first to meet the sun...

Carlisle: ... closer to the ground...

Carlisle: ... densely packed...

Carlisle: ... charming the eyes...

Carlisle: ... those reds...

Carlisle: ... with untouched passage...
