Small stones on a large granite boulder.

As my days of isolation blend from one into the next, the search for things that catch my eye continues. This morning it was a bunch of stones on a large granite boulder in the woods behind my yard.

  1. Your eye is certainly trained to catch the little details, Jeff. Seldom, on my few errands outside of the apartment am I so lucky as to find something that pretty to catch mine…
    Quite the challenge, in the cemented streets of Paris away from downtown… Will give it another try this afternoon.

    Enjoy the day!

    1. Thank you very much. Whenever I venture out in a downtown type setting I usually look at the light and shadows instead of “things.” What often catches my eye might be the way the shadow of one building falls on the next, or the shadow of an iron gate on the sidewalk.

  2. I have boulders like that in my garden and on the hill near me (much bigger ones on the hill) my question is, did you scatter those small rocks in order to take the photo? Or were they already there? An interesting image.

    1. They were already there, but likely not naturally so. This boulder is just off the side of where the driveway will go for the house lot next door to us. My guess is that the stones were deposited when the boulder was moved.

  3. I really, really like this. Do you know the sculptor Donald Judd and his floor pieces from a while back (or Carl Andre)? This is like an outdoor, natural version: the calm order of stones. 🙂
