Today promises to be frying hot – 91F or more. The house is already closed up to keep it cool – thank goodness for modern insulation! – so we don’t have to use the air conditioning. I took this image not too long ago on a considerably cooler day, and that is what I want to think about rather than suffocating heat! The plus side of the heat is flowers love it and as it is too hot and bright to go outside for strenuous activities, it is a perfect day to do things around the house, like sewing and such. Domestic life suffers in the summer around here.
The Olympus Trip 35 can be an amazing little camera – as can UltraMax film. Admittedly, I pushed the colors a bit as backlighting can be tricky. This was taken last June on an early morning walk in the neighborhood.
About 7 a.m. I looked up from the news and my coffee; the fog was slowly evaporating to give way to a brilliant morning: The sun, the fog, the trees.
Been busy with other things … but here are some daisies using Fuji Velvia 100.
I always liked the name of “daisy” – it means “day’s eye” – and these bright yellow ones certainly do cheer up the landscape.
Another image from last week’s morning hike through one of my favorite trails. The light was wonderful, brightening spots here and there, filtering colors above into greens and golds.
