“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~A Nin

Shot during afternoon light so I need to go back and reshoot these.  It’s water lily time in the Phoenix area and it’s fairly short-lived as the temps climb quickly so I am trying to catch as many different ponds that I know of before I return back to Prescott.

Risk…….do you generally close up or open up?   I think our need for security sometimes overpowers the need to branch out.  As I have gotten older I find I am more open to taking chances. I’ll never be a throw all caution to the wind type of person but I do feel like life is too short to miss out on important things and for those  things to occur, you need to open up enough to let them in.
