Pussy Willow
photo of a cat and pussy willow in angled sunlight

What I like most is the abstraction, the light and shadow playing on the objects and the walls, both the pussy willow and the cat turning from positive objects to negative space as the sun and shadow move across them. It’s an older photo on film, and I’ve been scanning my prints up to now. […]

Pussy Willow in the Snow

I’ve got so many photos of the big storm and it’s hard to decide which one I’d use if I were to choose a more scenic image, but sometimes I like a detail image. This one of the pussy willow buds under the snow is interesting for the way the snow fell, leaving one side […]

Shadows of Spring

The pussy willow buds are fat and the first warm day they will break open, but for now they cast shadows on the snow. . . . . . . All images used on this site are copyrighted to Bernadette E. Kazmarski unless otherwise noted and may not be used without my written permission. Please […]

Vitis Riparia
Tiny Grapes

One of our native grapes, hardy stock that can grow to the tops of the tallest trees, the fruits are usually eaten by birds before we humans can pick them. Generally I clear the grapevines off my trees and shrubs and make baskets and wreaths and garlands from them. These grew up the neighbor’s pussy […]

Happy Rain
rain falling

After a day and night of rain it seemed we were in the clear, as it were, this afternoon when the sky brightened and we even saw a bit of blue and sunshine. Then suddenly, as if it had been scheduled to arrive, huge raindrops began smacking into everything right at 4:00, just a few, […]

Blowing Away
dried wormwood

An early spring snow storm is moving in; the afternoon was breezy, pushing against the thickets of dried wormwood along the creek, whistling among the stems and spreading their aromatic scent about the banks in a cleansing way, the sky hazy overcast. It seems people forget other recent long and difficult winters. We’ve had snow […]

Patience
water droplet

Remove ego before photographing. This photo is nice, but it’s not the one I wanted. Why fuss and fret when you can’t catch the drop as it falls through the air as you wish? Turn away, let go of your intention, and there it will be. To awaken to a morning where ice coats the […]

First Snow
snow on pussy willow

As soon as it was light enough outside I opened a window and photographed the snow on the pussy willow, surprised to see how high it was piled on the narrow branch. This view is a convenient and favorite view to photograph—I can get a good closeup and the snow really piles on the branches […]

The Catkins Have Arrived

Tiny soft white kittens emerge from the hard brown shells that have been protecting them. Looks like spring to me.
