How to express it – the effect of winter, when it really settles in.
My painting lesson for this week addresses Shapes. So I’m seeing shapes everyone I go. It is unusual to have your vision filtered, shape-seeking.
This was a beautiful drive. I could have stopped so much more often to take photos. But there was a sort of pushing to get where I was going. Someday I will take a photography trip up route 7 and stop as much as I want to.
Wondering how these would look in black and white. I gave it a try in iPhoto. “Antique” effect looked better.
Accidental still life –
Calendar page picturing roses, sanded with sandpaper for a project
Dried leaves brought inside for a project
Gold silk ribbon I just have hanging around because I like to look at it
I wanted to manipulate this image, but maybe i like it just the way it is.
Now that I’ve taken the photo, maybe I can pick up the floor.
A scrap of a poem pasted on a wall in my neighborhood. Some of the paper was torn off, some looked like it had embedded itself into the wall. Very unusual. This was the only thing that caught my eye on today’s snowy walk. I find the matte and monochromatic gray-white-ness of these winter days very beautiful, but it can be hard to capture.
