the middle photo reminds me of a favorite quote by Jack Kerouac:
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars .."
do you ever get on a photographic kick? apparently i am on one. it involves using light and aperture and blur and happy accidents and flowers to create photos that remind me of watercolor-y, impression-y, flower-y paintings. (the kind of photos that some people - oh the horror - might actually throw out.) this is a kick that i might stay on forever - because the resulting photos make me happy every time i look at them. and isn't that really one of the best criteria for photos?
you may see more of this batch. i am considering framing some of them for my bedroom or dining room. we are approaching the grey season in my beloved rainy pacific northwest - and i think that they would help to brighten a gloomy day.
