A Zen saying on a photo I took at AfrikaBurn a few years ago.


I discovered this photo at the Flickr site of the photographer and digital artist,  Hartwig Kopp-Delaney.  I highly recommend that you take a look at the site and also his website.

Untitled photo

October 20, 2008






I shot this photo on Saturday night. I was at Afrika Burn in the middle of the Karoo, South Africa. 


The ground was hard like marble. It resembled the skin of a albino python. Fine, delicate desert flowers had grown out of the thin cracks in Earth’s shell. The life had almost dried out of these plants. The thermometer had reach 42 degrees celsius earlier that day. As summer now begins, soon these flowers will be gone and the ground will be left bare.


Any suggestions for a title are most welcome.
