Blades of Grass, As a Metaphor

When was the last time you laid on your belly in the grass and explored the individual blades? When was the last time you looked at people that way?

Autumn Revisited

Last fall, the day before our first hard freeze, I slipped outside before work and played in the leaves and grape vines for a bit.  Finding such beautiful details of decay and the back lit perspective courtesy of the early morning sun made my day!

Despite my enthusiasm, I (accidentally) stashed the pictures to work on later and just came across them for processing this week.  A lot has transpired for me since these photos were taken – it feels like it was ages ago- and it seems only fitting to squeeze them in before Spring officially arrives!
