Next to the last rose

Not sure if this really is the next to the last rose, but I sure am surprised to see any in mid November. (This one at home appears to be the last, but they still have quite a few in the garden at work.)

The Golden Hour

AR State Capitol , 11/07/ 2007

These photos are taken on the "front porch" of Arkansas, where big columns and big stairs frame big brass doors, which in turn, open to the second floor of the Capitol. (Truth is, the doors are seldom opened. Since 911 visitors are asked to enter under the stairs, except for special occasions.)
As is, all pictures were taken in a span from about 7:30 and 7:45 AM when the rising sun established a kind of echoing light harmonic with the doors.

Color Wheel

Fall at the Arkansas State Capitol.

All pics, November 3-6, 2008, Little Rock AR (c) by Kirk Jordan

These last few days have just been off of the charts in terms of radiant color, blister blue skies, and a singing heart. Its a funny thing and all, given that share a political philosophy at variance with our new president-elect. The Bible gives some interesting advice to followers of Christ. It says that we should weep with those who weep, and rejoice with those who rejoice. But what do you when the weeping or rejoicing among those who call upon God is caused by the same event?


Bonus points.

See if you can spot "another" moon, beyond the obvious one in second-to-last frame. Its a very tiny moon.


Face Book. I have finally done it. I have joined the face-full hordes who communicate in one sentence drivel with an exploding networks of friends. (At least now I can see what my kids are doing -- sorta.) If you should like to be my friend and are on Facebook, just send a message to Kirk Stephen Jordan from Conway. It may take me a bit to add anything of substance.


The Mighty Works project exists to praise God for the draining of the world. (If life and color were not at times drained from verdant things, we should not know of their hidden glories.)

Addendum: The little moon was supposed to be in the picture of the Capitol dome, with Red Maple leaves... just to the right of the dome. (Its hard to see in the blog version) However, the ever clever Steve Johnson spotted this moon in the same frame as the first moon!

Rose bowl

I know they use real roses in the Rose Bowl in California, but I guess I am just surprised to see a rose this lovely in early November in AR. 11/4/2008
