Winter Surprise

More snow came through and while this afternoon a good deal of it is melting, this morning was another story. When I saw this, it seemed to me a perfect visual metaphor for the coming month and the struggle in deciding whether winter will continue or spring will be allowed to come through.

A Bit of Winter

Some snowfall yesterday-not completely unexpected but still a surprise in greeting the morning-

An Observation

Next to tulips, cherry blossoms, Greenock, my next-door neighbor’s dying tree and dogs (and I am sure there are many others I have overlooked), pears rank right up there in most photographed subjects. I like their shape, their colors, their possibilities. Based on Wednesday’s post, I started thinking about other pear pictures taken over the last couple of years. It was an interesting exercise, as I can see certain patterns and hopefully, growth. So here are four images from 2012 to 2015 of . . . pears.

Snow and Ice

blew through Monday night and left a few reminders behind. I decided to experiment some with pears and ice-

One Subject, Two Ways

I do not think I could ever get tired of taking photographs of certain subjects–tulips being one.

Here are two renderings of the same image. I think I am more drawn to the black and white–not entirely sure why, but it is the one that I keep coming back to.

Take 12! February

Friday the 13th! Yikes!

A good part of the 12th was spent baking dog cookies for our Valentine’s-Day dog pals, so I ended up sticking pretty close to home. 

Five Things I Learned Today

1) Hubble likes to jump on top of the old doghouse-*surveying* his kingdom no doubt.

2) Signs of spring are appearing-I have spotted crocus, a daffodil and Lenten Roses already.

3) Mixing Red food coloring with Yellow egg yolks to get some type of true red is a real experiment in patience and color theory.

4) About 3 per cent of pet owners will give Valentine’s Day gifts to their pets. (!) My dogs got home-made cookies-sorry guys!

5)  Every Valentine’s Day, the Italian city of Verona, home of Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet. Who says there are no romantics left?

The Human Expression

I have always been fascinated about the expressions people show either be it facial or expression of their body, so unique, so exquisite, so diverse. Here is my attempt to capture some of that.....
