It is interesting on any given day to think about whether your mood affected your photo choices. In fact, one of my blogging friends, Susan came right out and asked that question to her photography friends and recently wrote a blog about it.

What about subject matter? What do you think your choice of subject matter says about you, other than simply what you like to look at?

I have found tall grasses to be a fascinating photo subject. I love the way they move in the wind, the way the sun shines through them and transforms something rather mundane into something stunning. Sometimes I photograph just a single stalk of grass in detail, sometimes I snap the whole crowd. I think this is a reflection of my mood.

These are few shots I took yesterday. I think I am struggling balancing between blending in and standing out: individuality vs. sociability. Also, just striving to take the things that happen in stride: going with the flow. I think these photos show this was on my mind.

“Any moment can be a spiritual moment, if allowed.”
Miranda J. Barrett

I love this quote…it doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing…being completely there can make it spiritual. Enjoy the rain, enjoy the snow, enjoy every moment of your life!

I have a love-hate relationship with time. I love clocks and watches, but I have to label myself “time-challenged,” because I am a poor judge of the time it takes to perform tasks. I am always trying to fit in one more thing before I head off to wherever I am going, making me perpetually late and running behind. I suppose the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland with his pocket watch would be an accurate characterization of me!

I am also a morning person. I get up early to cram in as many tasks as I can before going to work, knowing that by the time I get home I will only have the energy to make and eat dinner, maybe watch a little TV or read and then go to bed.

I enjoy going out to take pictures in the morning for the “golden hour.” These pictures of my town’s old-fashioned clocks were taken in the AM, just before sunrise.

And now I must go, because I am late, I’m late, for a very important date…(My Job)…

Winter does tend to be overwhelmingly gray. Last winter in New England it was overwhelming white! But this year…we can still see ground. Museums are a great winter activity no matter what the weather.

Art centers are always a place to find vibrant things, inside and outside. This is a bike rack outside the art center in Plymouth, MA. Who wouldn’t want to lock their bike to that beauty?
