mornin’, sunshine

March 4, 2010

As Erin and I gasped at the view out her window, I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of sadness over the fact that my visit was already almost over . . . and nostalgic as I visited my old haunts from living there. I thought about playing with this photo but opted against it, deciding that “as is” was quite perfect :-)

for the color of it

March 1, 2010

It was with singular delight that I carted my camera along on a brilliantly spring-like day here in the Pacific Northwest. After a winter of ice and snow, and frigid temperatures, it was indescribably soothing to feel such newness in the air. I can’t remember ever quite appreciating spring so much. But then again, I have had a habit of running away in the wintertime, accepting conveniently timed work opportunities in more tropic climes than those encountered stateside. And so today I soaked in this one afternoon of mildness with intense gratitude.
“Is it silly of me,” I asked Erin, “to be so giddy about photographing flowers today, solely because of the thrill of encountering color again?” She thought for a moment, then said simply, “Nah–I don’t think so.”
So I’m taking her word for it, and posting this simple shot for you of today’s color :-)
