Signs of Spring

It is a few days before Spring makes its appearance on the calendar, if not in the landscape.  Despite the lingering snow and a new crop of icicles replacing the ones that just melted, there are moments to relish simple things like stairs without snow.

As beautiful as the snow was, all 90 inches of it, I found that my color photos did not capture the feeling of that stark monochrome landscape so I returned to my roots in black and white.

But truth be told, I spent a lot more time indoors by the fire than outdoors with my camera. It was time well spent working on portfolio projects, writing Artist Statements, and updating my website.  As always, I appreciate your comments and feedback.  For those of you who use Pinterest, my photos now have a Pinterest widget.

If you are on Cape Cod, please stop in at the upcoming show, Fluent in Photography, March 26th - April 20th at the Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable, MA.  I am honored to be part of this show juried by Caleb Cole. The Opening is on March 26th from 5-7 pm.

The pale pink blush on the branches of my split leaf maple is getting brighter by the day, but until then little splashes of color like this backlit piece of seaweed fighting off the ice and incoming tide will keep me going.
