“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway,
Seeing The Daily Post Photo Challenge for this week, I instantly remembered these two photos taken two days ago. They simply describe my state of mind for the time being. I’d love to have lazy days, drink frappes and just chill out, but to do all that you need money. Just a simple reminder for the day 🙂
“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farmboy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.”- Hermann Hesse,

Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #16 is all about Color basics. I love colors, but most, I love cool tones. I didn’t know that up until I started to learn about photography. If you browse around, you’ll notice that most of my photos have cool tones. So this was a challenge I wanted to take in order to learn a bit more and play with editing.
Here’s how everything looks like in terms of cool and warm colors:
So, my photos for today are:
Cool vs. Warm
Cool vs. Warm
Some more cool tones:

Thank you Cee, for this assignment.
