We all cling to existence despite being weathered and worn by conditions and time.

Cracked and fissured, exposed to an ever-altered reality, we inhale deep the changing air to which we’re exposed. Satisfied by the details we tend to neglect the unfurling mural that is our lifetime. The grand scheme is interrupted by the day-to-day, the green truth in front of us, the whimsical.

Our roaming photographer recently captured this image of rusted nail and screw. The embedded metal contrasted with the dark lines of the wood. Our eyes are drawn to the orange rust and the green leaf.

Our photographer used a macro lens to zoom in on the details. Settings are adjusted to sharpen the image. This pulls out the texture to a level almost real enough to touch. It also brings out the blackness in the lines of the wood, which is what completes the photograph.

It’s easy to get lost in the details, but don’t forget to tend and ponder the entirety.
