the cooperative project Seven Rainbows... Third and Fourth Trip Through The Rainbow

Lili Love and I have been working on cooperative photography projects for quite some time! We started our first project titled Feathered in February 2016!  We have been working on Seven Rainbows for some time now.  I hope you enjoy our paired images, we create our images from many many miles apart, but our images sit side by side. This project is really a labor of love, I found it so easy to photograph a feather over and over and over in different ways all year long, but finding colors can be tricky for me.  I find our images much stronger when I see them together.  I hope you do too!  Below each diptych I have typed which image belongs to Phyllis Meredith Photography and which belongs to Lili Love Photography.  Thank you for looking, and happy rainbow filled days to you all! (Trips 3 and 4 presented below)

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you...
Kahlil Gibran

Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.
But if you turn your attention to other things,
It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.
– Henry David Thoreau
