Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 04 May 2016 — Istria, Croatia ::
Once again, from deep inside the hills of Istria, Croatia… this was at an old abandoned mill, close to the smallest town in the world, called ‘Hum’. There seems an endless network of the narrowest one lane roads, connecting countless tiny villages throughout the countryside. many hilltops adorned with a single church tower of the same architecture, which dominates the surrounding landscape… really quite beautiful. .. very quiet, peaceful place. Mostly limestone around here. lotsa frogs in the nearby creek again. loving all the shades of green.
while driving to this place, we passed a hilltop overlooking a huge expanse of endless hills. and there was something special about a solitary dog just sitting there taking it all in.. a very old soul perhaps? contemplating life and love? meditating? who knows… either way he looked much wiser than I. it was an unexpectedly profound sight. if only humans could pause in such a way, sit still and just absorb the beauty around them in such a way. not a care in the world. . .
Meditation. Balance. Art.
