The wonders of nature can be appreciated by observing its various elements, such as colour, structure, texture, and versatility. For, “The moment one gives close attention to anything,” said Henry Miller, “even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”

This is one of the most peculiar photos I’ve ever taken because I remember that I wasn’t intending on capturing this bug on camera as I was taking the photo. I think I was merely trying to shoot the branch with my new DSLR back then, but apparently the effect of Mr.Nikon was so good that it revealed the details of what I thought was simply a little green blob. When I saw the form of the bug in the photo, I was really quite shocked, but wow! Nature is so wonderful!
The branches on the tree by the sidewalk are still clinging onto bright green leafs. Autumn is fast approaching, though, and green will soon be devoured by the arrival of orange, red, and yellow. Enjoy the greenery while you still can!
My dad and I went to Guildwood Park as part of my hunt for hiking trails in Toronto. The trees provide a beautiful green canopy for our walk and formed a green tunnel leading into the woods, but the green walk also brought with it annoyances in the form of mosquitoes. Shame on me for overlooking the fact that I’d be covered in mosquito bites. Insect repellent is now ready for the next hike!
Back in Basel on our last day, we stumbled upon an old man sweeping flattened cans in an ordered manner. Is this some sort of art creation?
