American beautyberry is also known as French mulberry, sourbush, bunchberry, or purple beauty-berry. Found throughout Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas they are a favorite food of deer and hikers in the late summer and early autumn. Mature leaves (when plant berries have formed) contain a natural bug repellent and can be carried to ward off biting/stinging insects.
Have a lovely day on the trails.
Love to ALL!
Although the #photo101 example was ridged in the photo example presented I felt as an artist and photographer there were more options. I have chosen to explore all elements within the definition of the adjective meaning for the word double as listed below. Double bevels make up a gold grenade, multiple lines of matching tiles are part of an art deco design. Twin fawns, two birds or side by side trees in a single frame show natures definition of double. I rotated to present and create new meaning for some tiles as well,
dou·ble ˈdəb(ə)l/ adjective
consisting of two equal, identical, or similar parts or things.
“the double doors”
synonyms: dual, duplex, twin, binary, duplicate, in pairs, coupled, twofold
“a double garage”
having some essential part or feature twice, in particular.
twice as much or as many.
“the jail now houses almost double the number of prisoners it was designed for”
Most of the obvious edges I could locate came from man made items in architecture. The sharp caulked line of a protruding corner made of a cobalt blue tiles. Geometric tile edges softened by the reflection in the polished surfaces. Ridged metal lines of an awning on bathhouse bow. The solid design soften by scroll work and stained glass.
Nature paints her edges with land, light and distance. The horizon of a sunrise in the vast flat Wyoming landscape. Layers of the Ouachita Mountains fading into fog at sunrise. A spring branch bathed in soft light as new leaves begin to unfurl.
Angles, curves and light can obfuscate or enhance the edges of man made and natural architecture.
Day Seventeen: Glass, Squared
Windows can create a myriad of effects. Reflections can ripple and distort framed within the pane of glass.
Glass might reflect yet reveal that which is held captive making it appear to contain a different reality.
Window frames create paintings of light and color. Illusions of reflections within reflections until we are unsure of the imagery truth. A feeling of motion while standing still.
A new world of light and reflection awaits.
Treasure can be people, events and or items filled with memories. The person who fills your heart and soul with joy. Gifts from those you love. The pursuit of dreams. Each one rare and unique. These are a few of my favorite things… ♬ ♪ ♩ ♫
Every day I am thankful I still have my husband. In 2010 two months before our wedding he had a major heart attack. Three of the four arteries feeding his heart collapsed. The stent inserted after a previous heart attack saved his life.
Each day of marriage and everyday we hike is a blessing. My beloved husband Rick makes my life joyful.

To my fellow #photo101 participants… it has been a lovely week.
