It looks like this little dog has his owner trained to focus on the bubble quite well! 😉

Afloat

Suspended in 
                sea and sky,
       
                         v    a    s    t     and     d 

                                                           e

                                                          e

                                                          p,

                          
            buoy and moon 



chart my way 
               through 
                         space and time.



A   slip   of   land   anchors   heaven and earth.


     
              Solitary         
    
                                 I                float.

Copper

Thank you Jennifer, for the One Word Photo Challenge: Copper. It’s inspired me to process the photos that I took last summer at the ruins of the São Domingos Mine in the Alentejo, Portugal. Although much of the rock is “copper” colored, the reddish-brown hue, if I understand correctly, is due predominantly to iron content. Copper was extracted from the mine, along with a number of other minerals, from Roman times until 1966. 

This polluted, ecologically damaged site enigmatically exhibits both beauty and desolation. I intend to make a more detailed post about it, which will include more photos, in the near future.
