Struggle past and present

The run-down streets portray struggle, while the earth can feel the pulse of a proud ancestry.

The couple captured in this image appear so passionate for one another and oblivious to the world around them. Photo was taken  in Salamanca, Spain with a little point and shoot camera.  Nothing fancy.  Blended in Photoshop CS5 with prairie grasses captured against the summer sun.

Yep… all you need is love.

Beauty…

Kind eyes that have seen sorrow, joy and struggle with skin wrinkled by time and the sun.  Wisdom, courage ,  a long heritage  of civilization unique to the rest of the world.

Beauty…

The Home Place

The Home Place by Joyce Meyer Photography

The past has floated away like fluff on a dandelion as the prairie winds blow across the old abandoned yard. The young girl’s grandmother has long since passed away, but the old house from her childhood still stands as if to be a testament to her very existence.

The skeleton of a house is what remains, but in the mind are memories… laughter, tears, struggle and joy are carried by the wind as it flows through the empty windows.  Heat radiating from the wood burning stove, smells of fresh baked bread permeating the air, the cluck of chickens in the coop to the sound of chicken sizzling as it fries in the old cast iron skillet…

The home place
