Objects and experiences that exhibit in paradox and all at once the best of everything and nothing. 
Elegant simplicity. 
Effortless effectiveness. 
Understated elegance. 
Beautiful imperfection.

  4. Wonderful colors, exquisite petals, great!

  7. Simple and a lovely shot. :-)

  8. Shibumi- new word. Love it. I had the same experience today. I got up and looked outside and saw something on the porch that needed investigating. it ended up it was just a pile of rose petals.

  9. Thanks for teaching me something new!

  10. Oh, that flower has a lovely color. Thanks for sharing and showing it in an artful way!
