Frozen in time…

Frozen in time

To me, here’s what’s really profound about photography: the ability for a mere mortal to capture a moment and freeze it in time. On its face, this might seem rather self-evident, but truly, when you think about it, you are capturing an image in a completely unique manner–once the shutter opens and closes, it will never again to be seen in precisely the same way, by the photographer or anyone else.  The frozen drops above are a perfect metaphor for this idea–the leaf and water molecules are frozen in time literally, and figuratively. No human being will ever again see exactly what I saw that morning,  but using my camera as a visual vessel, I have trapped the artistic moment forever. Pretty cool, if you ask me. Hope you enjoy…

Spring’s cruel joke…

 

I have been sharing quite a few of my favorite travel photos lately but today I had the yen to go back out in the field, and the early morning frost was the perfect motivator. We’ve been enjoying an unseasonably warm winter here in Middle Tennessee–so much so, that the forsythia has been in bloom for more than two weeks. Alas, I knew Winter would get the last laugh. After a brief snow flurry yesterday, the freeze set in, resulting a beautiful sugar-like frost on everything around. This poor little springlike bloom, encased in delicate ice drops, seems anything but amused. Hope you enjoy…
