What was after the universe? Nothing. But was there anything round the universe to show where it stopped before the nothing place began? It could not be a wall; but there could be a thin line there all round everything.
~ James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
As to your Newton, I confess I do not understand his void and his gravity; I admit he has demonstrated the movement of the heavenly bodies with more exactitude than his forerunners; but you will admit it is an absurdity to maintain the existence of Nothing.
~ Frederick the Great, Letter to Voltaire, 25 Nov. 1777
I love to talk about nothing; it’s the only thing I know anything about.
~ Oscar Wilde
Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
~ Lao Tzu
Nothing will work unless you do.
~ Maya Angelou
As for me, all I know is that I know nothing.
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.
~ Albert Einstein
Well, that’s it. I got nothin’ today. Or nothin’ much. I walked. I photographed. I have nothin’ much to say.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
~ Winston Churchill
A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
~ Albert Camus
I really like them all but “facing the fog” is my hands-down favorite!. What an amazing image. It feels like a painting.
Thank you, Terry. 🙂
My camera does that painting-like effect whenever I use the zoom. I don’t think it is supposed to, but it’s a nice side-effect.
You say nothin’ so beautifully Robin. All of the photos and quotes suit nothin’ to a tee! 🙂
Thank you, Joanne. 🙂
What a terrific series Robin! That image with the silver leaves and blue is particulary fantastic!
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
nothing much to say except that you have got beautiful images out of a nothing to say day!!!
Thank you, Ellen. 🙂
With images like these, who needs words?! Lovely, Robin. These speak for themselves, my friend.
Thanks, Kathy. Sometimes it’s better to let the pictures do the talking. 🙂
Hmmm.. was that you in the tiny wee drop of rain:) Beautiful little “somethings”!
Thank you, Smidge. And yes, I’m in there. 🙂
those first few shots are incredible, how did you do that?
Thank you, Chloe. 🙂
I’ll post about how I do it very soon. It’s easy, as long as you have a water source (pond, creek, etc.) and some fallen leaves. Flower petals and feather work well too.
Very poetical. Beautiful!
Thank you, Amy. 🙂
Your work is so painterly. Love this set.
Thank you, Lorrie. 🙂
love your nothing …. i can enjoy more of that any day 🙂
Thanks, Christine. 🙂 Nothing is harder than one might think. lol!
indeed, in this world where there always has to be something!
If you call this nothing, then count me in for all your nothings! I’d call this a “B” post and I don’t give these out lightly ie Your photos are beautiful. And the quotes are brilliant.
Thank you so much, Rosie. 🙂
Mmmm. I love leaves. This might be my favorite post of yours ever.
Thank you, Paul. More leaves coming soon. It’s a good time of year for them. 🙂
Words not neccessary…
Did you sit on the wet grass to get that last shot? ‘Cause it was worth it….
lol, Marie! How did you know? It usually is worth it. 🙂
The beginning of this post was very surreal. 🙂
Thank you, Frank. That’s what I was going for. 🙂
Nothing much….nothing but beautiful colours.
Thank you, David. 🙂
Hi. Full of humour! I like ‘several’ and the waterdroplet! Jane
Thank you, Jane. 🙂
Your images say it all! I can hear exactly what you’re trying to say, I feel it every time I go walking alone!! 😉
It’s a wonderful feeling, isn’t it, Holly? 😀
Love the leaf shots!
Thanks, Belen. 🙂
