Carpe Noctem

I realized this evening that I stay up much later than I used to. I wanted to work on this image tonight because I just love the trees. The next thing I knew it was after midnight again! If you ask me, I think all of the lines from the leafless branches seem to make their own art. I love how nature does that; flaunts its beauty without shame, even in the most vulnerable and unexpected places. I was never quite sure if the trees were even alive when I took the photograph, because as far as my eyes could see, it looked like sticks… upon sticks… upon sticks! Still, it looked beautiful to me. I think it has to do with growing up in the city. When all you really know of nature is what’s in your own backyard—or in the neighborhood park—glimpses of natural landscapes, untouched by man, create a sense of awe and wonder that’s truly unforgettable. I love that. Anyway, the later it got, the more I thought about how I’m becoming a night …

Goodbye Summer!

And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. Oscar Wilde This may be a little premature—there are still leaves on the trees—but this year I’m so happy to see summer go that I really don’t care. Yahoo! It’s been a very, very hot summer. With no A/C in our house, and one that’s been out of commission in my car, some days I wonder if I’m going to melt away before I make it to school. I LOVED summers when I was younger. I’m not sure what happened, but I can only assume that it must be an age thing. Anyway, I was experimenting with another tree shot today and (although this isn’t what I had in mind) I thought it looked a little Halloween-ish—so it seemed like the perfect way to say goodbye summer, hello fall! Have a beautiful week everyone— Peace and Love!
