Here’s my submission for the weekly photo challenge subject Heritage.
I’ve been practicing Buddhist teachings and meditation for the last 10 years or so. Striving for non-attachment, self awareness and compassion for all sentient beings has changed my life in ways that are difficult to explain.

Sitting at a table in a restaurant I noticed the lighting gave my sunglasses a mirror effect and decided to take this photo with my iPhone. It seemed like the perfect choice for this week’s photo challenge theme, <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/reflecting/”>Reflecting</a>.

On a recent trip to New York City I visited the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck. From there you can see most of Manhattan. It’s a pretty incredible view.

These fiddleheads remind me of an animal embryo. I suppose in a way they aren’t that different; newly forming leaves that aren’t fully developed yet.
This seemed like an appropriate post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.

Traditions De France
During the walking part of my commute through Old Town Alexandria I kept my eyes open for vivid images. Normally I walk on the same side of the street as Traditions De France so I pass right by without really seeing it. Viewed from across the street it really does make for a vivid image.

Island Of Wildflowers
On the way to Dark Hollow Falls, in Shenandoah National Park, I noticed this tiny “island” of wildflowers and moss growing in the stream.
If you click on the image you can see a much larger version of it.
