Sunday Softies

An afternoon spent in one of my favorite places….a little pocket of wildness in the heart of the city….with one of my favorite lenses….

…a hand-cut shaped aperture lends a little shimmer…

…and a spectral kind of sparkle…

 

…where the Bergamot….

…and other…

…wild things are…

 

 

Now I understand….

….why Claude was so enamored.

Possibly the most photogenic flower.

Water Lilies.

Took my one of my newest pieces of old glass (the Minolta 75-300mm, f3.5-4.5 [The “Big Beercan”]) to….

The Jewel Box, Forest Park, Saint Louis, Missouri.

A lot of images, I know, but I couldn’t help myself….they’re just so damned purty and the light was so soft and lovely….

A dearth…

 

…of activity, that is…

…around here…

…on this here blog.

Working on changing that.

Working on entering the world of Trying To Get Published.

So…not so many poems to share for a bit…

…but some assays into essay in the pipe…

…and the photos….always the photos…

…to maybe spruce this place up a bit.

Green things are growing.

Critters are creeping.

And beauty?

It’s there…

…if you look close….
