Dreaming of shades of white...



These photos were taken and altered with my i phone.
I photo journal often at: snap shots of my life.

(This assemblage is 14 inches long and 12 inches across.)



"White ...
is not a mere absence of colour;
it is a shining and affirmative thing,
as fierce as red,
as definite as black....
God paints in many colours;
but He never paints so gorgeously,
I had almost said so gaudily,
as when He paints in white."

--Gilbert Keith Chesterton [British author, 1874–1936] “A Piece of Chalk,” Tremendous Trifles (1909)
