In combing through my files, I found four pictures I wanted to share. They are rather random, so there is no theme to these photos. The first two were taken in a children’s museum in Lansing. The next was taken in Douglas, Michigan. The last was shot from my deck here in Spring Arbor.

In Leaves of Grass Walt Whitman wrote, “I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.” For photographers, Whitman’s words are a call to be mindful of the beauty in simple things. In seeking the “grand image” we may overlook a gentle glory in the simple. Hope you can see the beauty in my brief homage to Whitman’s words in these images of grass.
Did you see the spider thread in the last picture? As always, your thoughts, comments, and critiques are welcome.
