The pomegranate fruit is originated from Iran and northern India, yet it is said that Iran is the largest exporter in the world, it is know as ” Anar”. Although here in California ], because of a similar climate, the pomegranate bushes are seen all around.

Once this fruit is opened up, it shows it’s real beauty, the kernels appear like jewels.

The Iranian tradition celebrates Yalda, on the longest and darkest night of the year, it’s a winter solstice celebration. Pomegranates are one of the significant fruits of this tradition.

The strenghts of a flower…. the sunflower…

The sunflower is one of the strongest  flowers turning to the sun all the times. These images portray the sunflower from a different perspective. As at times I capture the back  of a flower, which in the sunflower presents also the strengths of the neck of it. The strengths is also our back bone at these times . Erect your self to an upright  pasture , just as the sunflower does and face the sunlight. Enjoy what you see and feel.

Walking at the beach close by, I discovered the beauty of those  tiny shells.

I am always wondering about the life within little shells compared to our lives which we think is a bigger life…

DSC_7909 copy.jpg 40

Aren’t we at times living in our little shell …

…. having not discovered our own  inner beauty without living in a shell…

…. it is what is within our shell , what we  call our soul.

The simplicity of a summer flower

DSC_0629 copy.jpg 40

During the midst of the Corona Virus time I had taken my camera outside to my tiny flowerbed.

DSC_0648 copy.jpg 40

Capturing the Scabiosa,  a simple summer flower in all it’s forms…

DSC_0697 copy.jpg 40

… and color… this is the eggplant  colored one.

DSC_0641 copy.jpg 40

It all started out a few years ago with a few seeds I had  put  randomly in the soil and now every year …

DSC_0703 copy.jpg 40

… I am blessed with an abundance of  blooming.

”  You don’t necessarily need a soil to plant seeds into…  It’s a simple thing to put a seed in your mind to make it grow and blossom”

The magic of nature…Fern

DSC_0677 copy.jpg 40

Since Covid took place I haven’t gone far to any places to photograph. Yet I discovered the magic of nature right in front of my door.

DSC_0679.jpg copy 40

One of those days as I opened my front door, quickly I grabbed my camera and let it dive into the “underworld” of the Fern.

DSC_0682 copy.jpg 40

It was just magic unfolding in front of my lens, the  splendid masses of Fern

DSC_0685 copy.jpg 40

The little dots being seen under the leaves are spores which reproduce themselves being dispersed by the wind and than fertilize.

 

DSC_0687 copy.jpg 40

Just a simple plant like Fern has the power to remind us of the magic of nature.

Enjoy what you see and feel.
