Between Here and There a ride I take once a week. Never fails to provide inspiration. Simple beautiful back light hide the sun behind the tree. Use polarizer and expose for the foreground + 1 stop. enjoy pjc
Early spring traveling on Rt. 87 Lebanon this day by car to the darkroom at Photosynthesis but my mind wanders to my youth as I would ride this road on my bike with friends from Coventry we would set out to explore sometimes riding 20 – 30 miles in a day. A new pond to skip rocks across, streams and big hills to race down fearless immortal kids. Fifty years later to the Lab, ten or so years ago to The Centennial Theater for summer theater dress rehearsal in Simsbury to photograph.
Yesterday hoping for an image or two between the rain drops or on the way back to chase the Golden Hour of late light. But there was no between the raindrops or Golden Hour. There was a visit with Carl and Maarit that made the sun shine within and the conversation with Tiana sharing her youth and dreams with us three sharing stories of youth and dreams. I told her I never thought I would be photographing barns but now as I think of being a kid in Coventry playing in haylofts the circle seems obvious. enjoy pjc
A collage of color and life at “The Salem Herb Farm” a place I visit as often as I can it renews me with color plants, a great variety of chickens some sporting Mohawk hair dos. Goats, an Emu with magic and peace filling the spring air I highly recommend a visit for you seedlings, flowers and soul. These plants are grown locally with love, not trucked in to the big box.
