I Heart Macro 88
As ice melts and refreezes patterns unexpected, create beautiful abstract art. Layered earth colors below blend with sky-blue reflections from above. Temperatures hover at freezing, a typical January thaw. Then the landscape transforms after a clean coat of snow that gessoes the canvas over the weekend, just as ordinary, just as extraordinary.
A winter storm is expected to come up the coast Monday night through early Wednesday morning, dumping up to two feet of snow in our area on top of the six or seven inches that fell Saturday. We are prepared for power outages, and simultaneously (I at least am) excited for our first really big snow of the season. I can’t help it. I’m like a child when it comes to sinking boots into the magic of a bright white blanket that comes up past my knees, or walking on top like an astronaut on the surface of the moon with my snowshoes. And if it is too windy and cold, I’m equally content to stay tucked in doors with a good book and a cup of tea. As much as I enjoy the connections to all of you and others via computer, there is also a sense of freedom and calm in not having Internet access during storms like the one predicted. We'll see what happens.
Welcome to Week Eighty-Eight
I Heart Macro
"Pure awareness transcends thinking... It allows you to look at the world once again with open eyes. And when you do so, a sense of wonder and quiet contentment begins to reappear in your life."~Mark Williams and Danny Pennman, from Mindfulness An Eight-Week Plan For Finding Peace In A Frantic World
It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR
I Heart Macro offerings!
Enjoy slowing down with your camera, paying full attention, observing beauty and curiosities many people pass right by. Your generosity of spirit and keen eyes may open the door to miniscule miracles and mirth others would not have access to otherwise. Feel free to include poetry, prose and thoughts your macro photo or series inspire(s) in you. Writing is completely optional for participation. Straight out of the camera (SOC), edited, color, black and white, anything goes as long as you bring the viewer near to whatever it is that drew your heart's attention and "woke you up" to full presence.
