Cherry blossoms, Vancouver

The most beautiful street is Graveley at Lilloet. I took these today.  Stunning.

Part of having my tiny apartment torn out because of a neighbour’s leak inevitably involves sorting, and I came across a portfolio of my (admittedly rare) landscape photographs. I often tried to photograph landscapes as if I was painting them.

Big Creature Media: You know you want it

I’m impressed with my friend Rosa Jurjevics’s multimedia company, Big Creature Media, which specializes in all aspects of motion graphics, animation, and video editing. I am too old to know about anything newer than Brownie cameras, but she always pretends I’m not and let’s me get (faux) gear-geeky. She knows her stuff, and you should probably know her stuff, too, especially if you have a hankering for a multimedia genius who can write like spit (and, also, spit pretty far).

 

At Big Creature, we keep our bulging green eyes peeled for those seeking a keen creative force to bring their video visions to life — and yes, this means YOU!

I am always seeking ways to display what flowers mean to me, the happiness and hope I feel when spring arrives.  Half of these plum blossoms look like books, don’t you think?  Let’s read spring.  Let’s start on page one and go slowly, so slowly, all the way through the pages of sunshine and light.

Can’t you just imagine these 6 feet by 9 feet on a huge wall?

 

How could life be about anything other than blossoms?

Dizzying beauty in front of my lens today in Victoria, a city burst into an uncanny bloom.  I saw rhodos, camellias, euphorbias, lavender, quince, magnolias, forsythia, tulips, violets, crocuses, irises and cherries and plums all blooming together.  The usual bloom time for tulips is May, which I know because kids used to steal ours for Mother’s Day.  Not sure what will happen for calendar spring.  Do you know?

Photography

Was putzing around on my old desktop computer and found a file with a few images from my days as a photographer.  I shot travel, my favourite, along with family and art.  When I was in the studio, I specialized in Hollywood maternity and newborns.

The antidote to cranky–photograph flowers

I made these impressionistic photographs of flowers this afternoon.
