Poor little blog #2 has been ignored for many months! Meatier, wordier posts are always at my main blog, One Foot Out the Door, but today I have a simple photo collage on the topic of … collages! These images include some of the collage-style graffiti we encountered in Bogota, Colombia, where street art is rampant. These in particular feature a pile-up of stickers, paint, small objects, and other bits of paper.
One of my favorite photographic reflections: the Maroon Bells near Aspen, Colorado. Shot this past May at sunrise, it is a testament to one of the few times I sacrificed sleep to get the picture!

I’d already posted one of my favorite faces in the world on my main blog this week when I remembered the wonderful faces I’d seen on my Bogota Graffiti Tour this past winter. So I’ll double up this week on the Weekly Photo Challenge to share a few photos that never made it onto this photos-only blog.

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I’ll taste your strawberries, I’ll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away,
‘ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.
These are part of the lyrics of a song I first learned at camp in the mountains of North Carolina. Originally written by Randy Sparks, the song is better known as a John Denver hit, and it has stuck in my head since the day we learned it around a campfire in the woods. It not only carries a great message for me to remember – focus on today – but the lyrics’ image of blossoms allows me to use this photo collage of Washington, DC’s peak cherry blossom day yesterday!

A last-minute entry before the next photo challenge … these jellyfish I saw at the National Aquarium in Baltimore today hung in the water as if they were totally weightless. Their diaphanous bodies floated like silky film in their liquid home with no sign of gravity at work. We were transfixed by the exhibit.
