Interstitial 104: Rain, Rain, Go Away

I’m not sure which is worse: snow that cripples a city, or endless rain.

Interstitial 102: Winter Remnant

These dried hydrangea petals serve as a reminder of the importance of transition, transformation, and change; providing a brief moment of reflection on what was and what is to come. My boyfriend, Klaus the Pug, joined me in deep thought.


Interstitial 96: By Jove

I think I got it! I think I captured a snowflake, or at least two stacked on top of each other. Check the gallery below to see it up close and my favorite—moss—with snow!

It was quite strange waking up on March 6 to a trace of snow on the ground. It was lightly snowing when I was taking shots, and I wasn’t at all expecting to see the actual shape of a snowflake in my photos. I didn’t think the kit lens was capable. What a fun surprise!

P.S. The image darkened after bringing it into WordPress. I’m not sure what that’s about.


Interstitial 46: Bare Barberry

I enjoyed watching the bare barberry (sounds like a name for a distillery) branches light up in reddish brown tones when the sunlight shone through the trees. The contrast with the snow was delightful, providing a nice background. I was very careful to not smoosh my face too close – those thorns are sharp!
