  2. All are lovely. I really like the lighting and shadows you captured on the church. The last photo of the well worn clapboards and wreath has a wonderful wabi- sabi quality. Thank you sharing these.

    1. >wabi- sabi quality
      Maybe I am showing my age or it is a geographic expression but that is the first time I have ever heard that expression. :)

  3. Hi, Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese aesthetic of finding beauty in the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. A beautiful house with flaking paint, a beautiful rusted iron gate, oxidized coper. Things which are effected by the elements , wind, rain etc. There is an interesting book by Leonard Koren, Wabi-Sabi for Artists,Designers, Poets& Philosophers.

    1. You are right again. It does not distract at all. ‘Tis the lasting beauty of New England cut stone.

  5. Perhaps a stretch, but one might even say there's a wabi-sabi quality to forgotten keys in the trunk lock of a beautiful vintage 380 SL ;-)

    1. Is there even a wee bit of wabi-sabi in the sometimes seen little rusted spot aside the rear wheel of a high mileage Subaru?

    2. Wabi-sabi in the eye of the beholder!
