Blooming Recklessly

"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."  

~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

It wasn't until today, when I noticed the pink and red blooms outside Cory's home, that I realized Spring was here. They seemed to have blossomed overnight. Even though it was cold and stormy, I couldn't help but snatch up my camera, venture outside and capture the pops of color that were existing amongst  the grey of the day.

Today, just in case you are like me, I wanted to remind you that Spring is officially here.

Tiny Treasures in Shades of Black and White

There is something about a black and white/monochrome image that is so captivating and powerful. The image somehow seems more serious, as if it has an incredibly important story to share. Today I'd like to share a collection of intriguing images that celebrate the beauty of black and white from some of our talented Tiny Treasures members. These images are breathtaking. They make time stand still.
