Spring on my mind

Generally, I prefer to stay “in the moment”. But looking through my photos and finding this wild plum branch in full bloom has me looking ahead to spring. Yes, I have textured the image (with two of my favorite textures from Fly Paper…hint….see button at right!) but very lightly. Most of the softness and mottling in the image comes from a very shallow depth of field and a pretty strong backlight.  So think sunshine, warmth, and softness. Make the sun your friend, break some rules and shoot into it!

    i confess that i was not a giant fan of textures until…well…yours! i like how you have described the process which opened my mind about them, but most of all, your image making and creating is beautiful.

    you allow me to be in your moment.

    thank you.

      Hello Robbie,
      Thanks for finding the blog and your kind remark. I am an admirer of your work (and your heart). Thanks for the reminder to look to our mothers and grandmothers for daily wisdom. Do you know my friend Honey Lazar? Her blog, about her Aunt Ruth, is wonderful…and her work is fabulous too. You’ll enjoy it. Looking forward to chatting again and seeing more of your work.
