Above: a macro shot of laurel leaves, drying in a glass on my kitchen windowsill. With a little filter play, to turn it into a jazzy photo.
After three days of rain and high winds, things are finally starting to calm down. This morning, I played with my food and got a few very close shots of kitchen items.
Here they are, in their glory…
One of the last Brandywine tomatoes from my garden… treated to a little filter play. I love those curves! A tomato with attitude…
Another angle of the laurel leaves, drying on the window sill. It is too much fun, playing with the light and contrast.
So much fun, in fact, that here is one more:
And finally, not quite food, but a jewel-like piece of natural beauty:
And now, I return to my garden, to right the pots that were knocked over by the wind, and pick up the debris…
Today, I celebrate spring and mid-week with a trio of flowers.
First, a local wildflower, the fawn lily.
Then, a local garden flower, the echinacea. With visitors.
And finally, something very tropical, from a greenhouse.
Above: yesterday’s sunset, mellow sundown.
Yesterday’s walk in the forest yielded the following images, with which I played.
Renewal, that is the lesson. Out of massive old stumps of fir trees, new growth, both well established (above)…
…and just starting out.
And back in my garden, there was evidence of new growth, pushing through and up!
Toward sundown, the light shone through the trees.
And sundown concluded on a very mellow note.
A little greenery, for a mid-week zen moment.
Almost like one of those paintings on velvet, don’t you think?
