life | absent friends
when i take still life photos i always try to get two. i like pairs. balance. maybe that's why i loved the world trade center so much? two buildings. two views. tomorrow is the ninth anniversary of 9.11.01 and it's hard to believe it's been that long or that it happened at all. so many things have changed and yet so many remain the same.
zinnias have always been such a happy flower to me, but in the language of flowers they represent 'thoughts of absent friends'. i never knew that and will always look at them differently, now. enjoy your weekend.
ps it would be a very good thing if everyone got aboard the peace train by yusuf islam formerly cat stevens. there's plenty of room for love, but please check the hate at the door.
