More ladies’ slippers

I’m still fixating on the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Although we have had a few sunny days, the temps have been worthy of a refrigerator and, combined with familial stresses, it is challenging to try and break out of my winter doldrums. Sure glad I forced myself to take that one day off from winter to wallow in spring.

Catching the light

One of the fascinating things about texture is how it interacts with light. Locally, in winter the mosses and barks take center stage, due to the low angle of the sunlight and lack of dramatic competition. In the other seasons they are just a backdrop for the brighter foliage and flowers.

I especially like how the mosses seem to magnify light. They often seem like they are emitting it instead of catching and reflecting, sort of like the full moon.

The eyes have it

Jenn at Wit’s End Travel has a thoughtful article and challenge about eyes. This has made me really conscious of eyes as I have both taken and post processed pictures this past week.

I was really surprised at how much difference a single eye can make to a picture. Great Blue here is trying to keep warm in a tree. I’m not sure why s/he (I don’t know how to tell with herons) popped an eye out to see what was going on.

I really noticed that the direction the eyes point give a lot of the meaning in a photo. Examples of this below.

Even at that there is something nice about pictures where the eyes are on the camera.
