OUR WORD VIEW – Word of the Week = WHITE

A collaborative BLOG between two friends (me and my friend Barbara Pagnotti) who’s paths were separated for 20 years and have found one another once again online. Both share a love of the ocean, nature and of course photography! A fondness for inspirational sayings has sparked this project. Each Sunday we will post the “WORD OF THE WEEK” and our individual interpretation of the word via two separate photos on our blog “OUR WORD VIEW”! Join our FLICKR group and add your photo interpretation of the word and join in the discussion! Our Word View – FLICKR Group

Word of the Week = WHITE

When Barb picked the word for this week I almost immediately knew what picture I wanted to use. I remember taking this photo after one of the few snow falls we had this past winter. In my garden I was so intrigued by the way the ice had formed little balls of white crystals on each one of the buds remaining on a branch of Russian Sage in my garden. It was so beautiful in the sun light it absolutely glistened. This image does not capture the true essence of that shimmer but it does show the little ice balls formed on the buds. White on white with just the darkness of the branch in contrast. You can just barely make out other hints of plants in the background. I don’t know why but I love the purity and simplicity of this image!
