Have you noticed or is it just me? The WordPress representatives are throwing their names away. No that doesn’t sound right. Throwing their surnames away – also not what I wanted to say. Use positive language Abrie. They are focusing on the first letter of their surnames. After Erica V scaled down her surname last week, Jen’s H is glowing this week. I wonder what Ben H
uberman will do next week? And this is what Jen is glowing about:
Ask any professional portrait photographer about the Golden Hour, and their eyes will probably take on a dreamy look. The Golden Hour is the time of day before sunset or after sunrise, when the light is soft and glowing. It makes for absolutely beautiful photos. This week, share something that glows.
Well this is Abrie J’s take on glow. To read more about the photo underneath and a few of its buddies you can go to a narrative in majestic narrowness. But let me just quote one sentence from that post: “As the sun rose it is as if the world was squashed into the narrow line between the horizon and the clouds.”
⇓A year later I found myself on that farm close to the worlds Ostrich capital Oudtshoorn, South Africa again. And again I got up early “with everybody asleep but my body” and wondered if a majestic narrowness experience could be repeated, but I and the ostriches realized it was not to be.
⇓In realizing the absence of a spectacular sunrise I set off searching for photo opportunities and found an excellent piece of crochet. A few stitches may have been dropped but I would have given a cum laude mark for the creator thereof but then I have never judged crochet or to be random spider webs for that matter. It is amazing the work and detailed simplicity built into a spider web (this being the actual size of this one). The oxidizing wire to which it was attached and the web itself certainly glowed due to the artificial sun on top of the camera.
⇓As the sun rose it was still not a spectacular sunrise but as I was on a searching for photo opportunities station I framed the sun in the gap of the reeds.
⇓A fiery glow in the tree contrasted/accompanied by the glow of the moon also sourced from the sun.
⇓As the sun climbed higher a mist rolled in and it turned into quite a spectacular sunrise. The mountains featured in majestic narrowness can be seen above the tree.
⇑Amidst the glow on this circular branch, the spider who spun this web failed miserably in the crochet exam. It is but one or two strands with no “detailed simplicity” built into the design. However if it was an outcome based examination the creator of this “web” would have received full marks, as food – an ant – is stuck to it.
In life we are advantaged by “crochet classes” but sometimes lessons learned from life itself needs to be applied to accomplish what needs to be accomplished especially when it comes to relationships.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2
