garden notes


a gate opens and closes in the cold afternoon air . . . humming a song for this day

relax . reflect . rest . renew . rewind . repair

simply west

the direction to drive as the sun set
clouds cover the sky dancing with trees
drenched in shadows and light

west...a simple canvas for
soft wind . humming tires . dreams of arrival home . sky colors .
telephone wires . bare branches . trucks . motion . life . contentment
along a road lined with red and white lights ahead like stars along the way
my friend who lives west of me and a bit north embraces simple today will you?

life is a leaf

weathered . elaborate . unique . worn .
no matter the angle or side
and that is ok

wishes by the bunch

you are a winner ... not 1st runner up
embrace the bouquet . enthusiastic applause . a grace filled standing ovation
you deserve love . joy filled moments . carefree fragrance of flowers . a knowing smile

made clear in the fog

me in the passengers seat with camera close by
a morning of surreal light enveloped the city
fog is very unusual in my neighborhood

I saw the answer to a question that had been in the back of my mind...
"should I begin another photo project for a new year?"

Red or Gray Black & White
will be a simple blog
using little or no post processing
as the images become clear
just what i see

before warmth melts the early beauty of the day
a canvas of magic appears on the windshield
encouraging me to see it everywhere I go

early riser that i am
embrace still . quiet moments
before the day fills with
coffee . tea
. friends .

. pen . fabric . thread . paper . photo .

small part

we will always be your safety net
when Life
appears to unravel
and the threads seem crooked
