Often I find my inspiration in the strangest of place... Walking through a forest preserve, I began to notice the colors and shapes left in these withering cut logs. Something as simple as this, has become today's inspiring thought. Even the core of these extravagant trees holds within it, the life of creation, and a mesmerizing twist of displaying its development through its years here on earth. I know I often turn poetic when I dwell on the thought of creation, but as I snapped a shot of these small stumps I am once again reminded about the true beauties of nature.
