Reaching for Spring

The daffodils sprouted—today! I saw the leaf litter was lifted a bit yesterday, but no trace of green. Today, the sun touched the tips; the crocused, squills and tulips had also pushed aside the leaves but none looked so much like fingers reaching for the light as the new daffodils.

Autumn Sun

Kelly lazily observes something high up the sunny window as the sun’s warmth both shines and reflects on her, from 2008. The light is so warm and the various patterns of hammered glass in the window create a feeling of seclusion and solitude, and all these reasons drew Kelly to this window regularly on all her years here.

Early Summer Morning Shadows

Summer morning alleyway.

The red bricks and blue shadows, reflected light on the buildings in shadow, the shapes and textures and patterns, each garage an individual shape and color and style, so much detail in a simple alley on a summer morning.


Pussy Willow

Pussy Willow

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. For this one I’d like to get a good negative scanner.

I featured this on The Creative Cat tonight, and if you care to you can read a little more about this photo and how it encouraged me to consider taking my photography more seriously as an art in itself, and not just as reference photos for my art.
