At the going down of the sun

Last edited Thu Sep 14, 2017, 06:05 PM - Edit history (1)

Since the death of my wife a week ago, my camera has turned more often toward the sun and sky.

3. A rainbow for you and your beloved...



I'm no photographer, but I love photography. This second rate photo was taken on my iPhone as I took the dogs out Monday morning, prior to Irma's rains here in Nashville. If our souls are a part of all our world, I'd hope to be a part of a rainbow.

17. Thank you. Rainbows are a powerful symbol.

Here's my rainbow story. Last Friday, two days after her death, Kathleen sent me a single enormous crack of thunder and a magnificent double rainbow. I took it as her way of telling me that she arrived home safely, and is quite pleased to be there.

But maybe it was just thunder and a rainbow. We each make our own meanings - this is the one that works for me..

4. Nice. It's been years, but I played my guitar and mandolin a lot when my wife passed away.

Take care, and more photos please.

5. The earth breaths. In and out as the seasons turn from summer to fall. In the rhythm of life and our

great cosmos stretches and wanes. To everything, there is a moment of existence and a brief and tender thread in the wondrous tapestry where we must learn the lessons of our journey.

Thank you and those like you who can open the window so we can see that moment.

6. My dear jackalope...

The sun, that brings us life and light...

The trees, that breathe her name in the wind...

The birds, that show her soul taking flight...

Beautiful, wonderful images, my dear jackalope...

Please allow us to continue to participate in your ongoing journey...

18. Do you realize-Flaming Lips

You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round


Peace be with you.

I lost my beloved husband six years ago last month, and I miss him every day. Your photos are beautiful and are a lovely tribute to your wife.
