The reluctant remains

Hang on!

"Ah, when to the heart of man

Was it ever less than a treason

To go with the drift of things,

To yield with a grace to reason,

And bow and accept the end

Of a love or a season. " Robert Frost

I couldn't see this at first, so I clicked on the X...it took me to your Flickr. I commented there, but will add it here as well.

This is simply stiking in black and white.

I like this in black and white and how you've composed it with the subject off center. I like how you've paired it with the Robert Frost poem, too! = )

I really like the lower part of the photo, with the filigree against the black background. Very delicate!

gorgeous, moi.... how we hang on to things even when we know it's time to let go. but the seeds will never grow into a mighty maple if they continue to cling....
