do not fear.

  9. What a wonderful shadow you were able to capture in this shot. The gate calls me to come and walk on through to the other side. Quite the pretty photo.

  11. To MMT~ Sometimes I am paralyzed with fear and can’t move forward. Thank you for reminding me that beyond the shadowy wrought-iron gates is a world of pleasant experiences to be enjoyed now. I like how your haiku always deepens and enhances your beautiful photos…
