My brain is cooked, like slow simmered applesauce. We used to call it chicken mushy brain…when you’ve worked so hard you can barely think straight. Words come out like so much babel. So I have no lovely poems for you today, or wise thoughts or quippy quotes. Nope, nada.
What I do have are shots from my latest photo shoot, a mishmash of prompts. Abundance, foraged, and the basket of apples spark from Kim Klassen’s latest class posts. I have been working at her photo prompts for a year and a half now and never tire of them. These prompts are perfect, just the thing to bring me back to stillness, creativity instead of productivity.
The mottled apples, ‘foraged’ from my favorite farm stand stayed in the refrigerator for weeks, waiting patiently for their debut. Their texture intrigues me. As you can see, I had way too much fun playing with all the presets and edits.
And there’s a first, my feet in the picture. Not too sure how I feel about it yet.
Before I fly off to ‘Finding Stillness,’ I wanted to share a link with you. This photographer is a local favorite, having published several books on Maine gardens and gardening. I had the incredible privilege of taking my very first photography workshop from her. Lynn Karlin’s upcoming show will be at the Maine Farmland Trust Gallery. Enjoy her interpretation of ‘abundance.’ lynnkarlinphoto.com
