"Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."
"I will prepare and some day my chance will come."
"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe. "

Narcissus's also know as Daffodil's are in full bloom around this time of the year.
So of course I had to break out my camera and take a picture of this yellow beauty!
Although a lot of us are draw to it because its eye popping color.
I'm drawn to flowers not solely for their colors but their elegant shape and form.
This is why I choose to make these pictures black and white.
I believe color can distract us from what is also beautiful.
So, hopefully you will find this photos as beautiful as I do!
