“Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it.” ~Sudie Back


If you look at the title, view the image, read the quote and find yourself scratching your head…well, let me try to explain the background.

While visiting my father last week, I wandered over to the neighbor’s yard and grabbed a few quick shots.  The neighbor told me that her daughter had planted the flowers that I was admiring.  She added that Katie thought the seed packet said the blossoms would be 4 to 6 INCHES tall, but quickly learned that in reality the blossoms were 4 – 6 FEET tall!

Katie has a curious mind, and it is always interesting to see what new hobbies and activities she is exploring.  With each visit I learn of a new phase of learning and growing in Katie’s life.

I was curious as well.  I wondered what four layers of images would produce.  The image posted above is a composite of three shots of Katie’s flowers and one texture layer.

So, the moral of the story — “Be curious always.  For knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it.”
