Faucets and Rocks . . . . . . .

A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I love taking pictures out in this beautiful world of ours. On my retreat last summer in the Cascade Mts. of Washington St. I got some really fun pictures of lots of different things. One very interesting thing was the difference configurations of rocks. Paths and piles of rocks. Rocks just strewn everywhere. It was such a wonderful thing to see.

My other find was coming upon some faucets, right out in the middle of nowhere. I am not sure if these faucets still even did anything, but I loved the shapes, symmetry, and composition of the way they looked.

All of us have our own conception of what is art, and for me you can find no prettier picture than what we can find in nature.


  1. Looks like giant children where busy playing with those rocks and then their mother called them in for lunch!

  2. That is a good point Laure. Happy Easter

  3. Most of the rocks are River Rocks, They start out high in the mountains and are washed down stream. As they tumble along in the rushing water they rub against each other and the bottom of the river and are worn away. Thus smoothing the sides and edges off. They come in all sizes.
