Today's First Monday of the Year post is about Perspective.


False sense of security?

Reality can be skewered when viewed
from a different position.


Party in front, business in back?

A hummingbird nest and egg on a peach:


I thought it was a big accomplishment when
I sewed in my first zipper but this is insane:

The purpose of today's photos?  Maybe to show those of us who
are obsessed preoccupied with collecting and bargain hunting
that things aren't always what they seem.

I'm guilty of getting 'carried away' when I find (what appears to be) a
diamond in the rough but turns out to not be the treasure I first thought.
One of my 2016 Resolutions is to slow down on accumulating bargains
and narrow my focus of interest.  Maybe less is more?!
