Yesterday was one of those fully overcast days when you don't actually throw a shadow. I finally figured out that it's because the light is diffused and reflected through the clouds untill it seems to come from every direction except straight up. It bounces off all those water droplets hanging in the air, refracting and twisting around untill a photographer is ready to weep for joy.
And what am I doing on such an illuminating day? Taking my regularly scheduled yoga class and meditating on enlightenment? No. Getting my eyes checked. Yep, there they are. Two. Somewhat symmetrically placed. Aging gracefully. I still don't need perscription lenses, just the grocery store magnifiers for reading. Afterwards, I gave myself a treat and met LG for lunch, then hit the Button Emporium to use up a birthday gift certificate. Squeee! there's one millefiori button in dark red and black the won't show up well on film but has two fishes swimming in a yinyang shape. And here are some of the others:
The dragonflies on glass just had to come live with me. They speak of hot summer days and creative indolence. And the fishie - how could I leave such a charming little fishie? It's made millifiori style as well, and it boggles my mind to hink how one would construct a rod of clay in such a way as to get a fish in every slice. Humans are awesomely inventive creatures!
Got any buttons you love?
