We’re heading into spring and with it comes the ritual of “opening the garden for the season.” I can’t believe we’ve been carrying this out for 24 years! It is the time that brings with it a bit (sometimes a lot) of angst for one never knows what very fickle Mother Nature has in store (I won’t even list the options over which I wring my hands).
The not-knowing-what-this-year-will-bring syndrome always prompts me to seek solace in my favorite images from past years. With approximately 35,000 images on my cell, I have many choices. Oftentimes it is driven by that phenomenon we’re all familiar with where you suddenly see a detail in an image that evaded your notice the last few times you looked at it! It may be the way the light catches a detail of the house, or an unusual angle, or a composition that makes the image “sing.” One thing I’ve learned for certain…capture that picture when you see it, good photo moments are fleeting.
