Mother Earth

It’s cold and raining in New York today.

However, it’s so pleasant to remember that our planet always have terrific warm places.

Just imagine that you are in one of them!

Who created symmetry?

PHOTO CHALLENGE: SYMMETRY

Before submitting entries to this challenge I searched for definition of the word “symmetry”.

Here is one that I like (from The Free Dictionary): “The correspondence of the form and arrangement of elements or parts on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane or about a center or an axis.”

Then I thought: “Where do we meet symmetry?” Is symmetry natural? Is it created by people?”

It looks to me that nature has only a few symmetrical things on this planet. As a rule beauty is not symmetrical. The rule of thirds in photography confirms it.

I think that symmetry (even as beautiful as some of my digital paintings) actually shows limits of human imagination.

Now it’s time to show my entries in this challenge.

New Year’s resolutions?

I have to confess that I have never made New Year’s resolutions.

For many years it was simply necessary to survive.

When problems or needs arose I tried to do my best to solve problems or satisfy needs. There was no time for procrastination, for doubting what was possible.

It’s impossible always to be a winner, but doing your best actually makes you a winner. And it is always possible to adjust needs and to see if your problems are real.

2015 is coming.

What am I going to do?

To enjoy life, love, friendship, creativity, beauty!

The Sun will be rising again tomorrow, the Earth will be beautiful, all oceans will be in their usual places.

We live in the wonderful world!
