I’ve been examining some of the natural objects I’ve picked up over the last few months and I am always amazed at the extraordinary things that can be observed when one stops to really look.
This is a collection of small but very different natural works of art, etched out by time and environment. This worn shell from Cape Breton reminds me of a delicate piece of filigree china. It also appears to have tiny articulated legs!? Perhaps the calcified legs of some other creature, or some sort of plant growth, I really don’t know. Or maybe it’s just the way it’s wearing away. Any ideas?
It seems that ice can become an infinite number of interesting shapes. A little sampling…
These images were taken with a Nikon FE film camera (a great camera) and scanned from prints I made in a darkroom. I still fantasize about setting up a darkroom at home.
I couldn’t let the first day of the year pass without marking it with a few thoughts and images. I am so grateful for the support of the amazing people who are in my life and excited for what the new year will bring. This is kind of like a little reminder to myself to be strong, to stay on the creative path I have chosen and to always be thankful for what I have. It’s like a string around my finger. Strength, for whatever lies ahead Reach, for your wildest dreams Reflect, on what you have and what you have learned An adventure lies ahead. Thanks for joining me!
