52 Photos: Gold

It’s been a while since I’ve done a 52 Photos Project post! I have a few moments and wanted to participate in this week’s prompt: gold.

This is a piece of gold leaf that was left on a ruin in Sukhothai, Thailand:

When I was in Japan, we visited a town called Kanazawa. There is a lot of work done with gold leaf there, and we got to see a demonstration. This man works with gold leaf and I was enchanted with all the dust that covered him – including his lips!

Here’s a tiger lily from a hike I did in the Olympic mountains:
gold and purple

I cannot resist a dahlia bursting with color:

crimson and gold

Nor the green and gold bacterial mats in the geysers at Yellowstone:

And finally, any excuse I have to share a Buddha picture, you know I will take it:

    I particularly like the first image – perhaps the idea of something as ‘precious’ as gold being amongst ruins?

    Simply beautiful. Reminds me of “nothing gold can stay.” But it CAN stay. We just have to catch it and hold onto it.
