STONE HUNTING

I’m starting a new project called “Give Me An Assignment.” It will be an ongoing project, which I will ask people I’m fond of (because of what they do or because of who they are) to give me short and sweet projects to realize. I will tell you more about it in the near future : ) The first project of “Give Me An Assignment” series involves stones. Ever since I had this idea lingering in my head, I looked for stones whenever I’m outside. It turns out, it is not so easy to find stone in the city. I just never realized that until I needed to find some.

So I went to a near by forest for some stone hunting session. Of course I got distracted along the way : )

There were many groups of old men playing pétanque. This is everyone’s favorite game during the summer in France. Even though I am no good at throwing these iron balls, I love it.

Obviously, these guys were pros.

Once I got into the forest, there were so many little paths I would’ve liked to explore. But this forest has a reputation of being a little dangerous, so I didn’t feel like taking small paths.

Something that distracts me very easily are the leaves. The formation and repeating patterns within the leaf structure is fascinating. Seriously, I can just stare and look for the repeating pattern within the pattern within the pattern within the pattern… I especially liked this one above.

Once I got out of the forest, I saw this giant mirror on the street. If I had a car instead of a bike, I would’ve totally brought this one back home with me. By the way, I wore the unfitting clothes for the weather once again, which I do quite often. I don’t know why I wore all those clothes plus the cardigan when it was summer hot!

So here are the rocks I’ve collected!! Their true color and shine came out once I’ve washed and dried them. The textures and colors within each stone are amazing to look at.

I’ll be doing more stone huntings these coming days. By the way, is stone hunting a known hobby? Otherwise I’ll start one.
