A few things I’ve seen this winter:
It’s been an intermittent winter. Last weekend was warm, with a few patches of flowers, now it’s cold again, with temperatures around freezing. The snowy pictures are from last month, the leaf image is more recent. I found some ice in a shallow pond, I liked the overlapping shapes of the leaves. If you look closely, the surface of the ice is cracked and creased with lines and scattered small bubbles.
Beautiful clichés !
Attention: en anglais cliché n’a qu’un sens négatif. On dirait plutôt shot ou photo.
Oui, je sais. It’s a shot.
Your first photo reminded me of some of Harry Callahan’s minimalist winter pictures.
I love Harry Callahan’s work, and that series in particular. Thanks!
A quiet day in winter is the quietest day of all. Images like this allow me to hear that silence.
I love the quiet of a walk in the meadow or woods. Thanks for stopping in.
The images with snow have an Asian feel to me. I can imagine both being done with a brush and ink. The middle leaves are more directly appealing; they have a warmth that seems strong enough to melt the ice. That they haven’t sets up a nice contrast.
Thanks, Linda – the leaf image is more complex and there’s more color interest. The spareness of the images with the snow background is something I like, but it’s challenging to make one with impact. Harry Callahan, the photographer Steve mentions, has some great ones with white backgrounds.
