Quiet people, places, and moments have meaningful things to say, but such is the way of the world that the louder and bolder tend to get more attention. I am decidedly a quiet person, preferring to be sure of what I say rather than speak too soon. Thus, I have found a kinship with the natural world, where quiet places and moments are much more common than in humanity - not just audibly, but in terms of being uninterested in attention-grabbing. I admire that the natural world has no ego to feed.
This collection of images with soft light, pastel colors, smooth shapes, and simple subjects serves as a platform for the quiet ones whose important messages are not always heard.
