Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention. Friendship is always an act of recognition.
― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Below is the original photo used to create this image. I was in heaven when I took a lunchtime walk around the capital grounds in Richmond, VA and found this vibrant flower bed. It was hard to focus in on just a few blooms, so you’ll probably see more of these in future posts. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
