Look at the Sea.

“Look at that sea, girls…all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.” -L.M. Montgomery +++ ©Mariko Evans

Misty morning rain

“I have often thought that we do not have nearly enough words for rain, especially as this was once a rainforest. There is booming rain, whispery rain, rain that lulls you to sleep, and rain on the leaves which sings you awake; there is soft rain, hard rain, sideways rain, rain that makes you instantly wet, and rain that leaves soft kisses on your cheek, like the wings of a butterfly. Rain brings us all the shades of gray, but it also brings us the wonderful greenery that surrounds us and blesses us all.” – Regan D’Andrade +++ ©Mariko Evans …

Through my window.

“You have the nicest window, you know? None of the others can even compete. It´s not flashy like the others, or bleary – your window gives of this nice, quiet light.” – Banana Yoshimoto +++ Yes, I like my windows. :) ©Mariko Evans

Her boy.

I’d travel many roads before but somehow they were wrong And sometime we find that life is just a simple song Even the saddest songs ever human face I will always keep my son in love’s magic place -My boy, Lisa Ono +++ ©Mariko Evans

Lingering Summer

After spending a weekend in San Francisco, under foggy white & grey skies – yes, Autumn was already there – it was sort of lovely surprise that we’re welcomed by Sunny Sky upon our return to Vancouver. It’s always not easy to let the Summer go, oh Summer, stay a little longer… till I’ll be totally ready for shooting in Autumn colours… : ) ©Mariko Evans


Where our eyes are never closing Our hearts were never broken And time’s forever frozen, still – Ed Sheeran +++ ©Mariko Evans


He called hydrangeas purple. And they were. Not fixed and deadly, (like a curving line That merely makes a ring). It was a purple changeable to see. And so hydrangeas came to be. – Wallace Stevens +++ ©Mariko Evans

She speaks silence.

He says he likes her as she is quiet But I know that she speaks silence…a lot yet only a few people know about it and listen what she says Enjoy your weekend everyone. ©Mariko Evans
