Tree of Knowledge


Tree of Knowledge – 13-0493  |  Canon EOS 60D, Sigma 17-50mm


There was no good nor bad, just life
to this only man, and his given wife,
Days would pass, nights would fly,
animals their friends, of earth and sky;
Everything existed, no rhyme nor reason,
their world, their life, through every season,
All that would change with an admonition,
“Taste not the fruit of the tree, this one”,
All else permitted, this was forbade,
why not partake, why else was it made?
A question asked, a quest begun,
why shouldn’t they eat of this one?
A search for an answer, the first defiance,
revelations shattered the silence,
An answer found, more questions arise,
the world now seen through opened eyes.
The tree of knowledge, a planted seed,
And now it grows, it blossoms… indeed!

Lawyer and/or Photographer

I’ve had this one in my upload folder for some time now, since Nikhil tried his self-portrait, and I thought at the time to just get a slightly different angle to his “back-of-the-head” shot he was going for.  Of course, my version is a little darker and more moody, but I rather liked it, but I don’t think that Nikhil liked his “stomach” showing as much as I have it  🙂

Nikhil: attorney-at-rest, photographer-at-work

I happen to think he is a very good lawyer, and quite possibly a much better photographer, but what do I know?
