Volume 7 - Issue 25

Today's Picture to Ponder will be brief. I am on an extra-tight schedule and yet feel the commitment to get out the weekly issue of Picture to Ponder.

Have a great and inspiring weekend.

Today's Picture to Ponder Photos -

Walking out onto my patio recently, I discovered two of the three flowers on my phalenopsis orchid plant had dropped onto the table (picture 4). Intrigued by the delicate colors and shapes that had remained, I went for my iPhone camera, the most convenient.

I used one of the photo apps on the second and third images - same photo rotated 180 degrees.

I invite you to spend a moment, more or less, with both the second and third photos. Do you see or feel a difference between the two of them? For me the first of the two has an angelic quality. The "face" on the second feels quite prominent.

Self-Reflecting Queries -
Once again, in today's photos, we have an example of how dramatically things can sometimes shift simply by looking at them from different perspectives.

Is there anything in your life now to which you can apply an "upside-down" view?

When considering this, is there really a "right-side up" to that person or situation? Or, have you simply seen another way you can view them or it?

As always, have fun, and please share on the blog what comes up for you.
