I have been admiring nature journals for a long time and decided to give it a try starting today. Here are some components of an abundant fern in my yard that will be the models for my first attempt. I have a few other things lined up, but since there’s no way I’m going to sit on the ground out in public drawing, painting, and writing for a few hours, I’m wondering if any of you take things such as wildflowers from public spaces or do you draw from photos?

A way around the dull colors is to convert to black & white.

Cloudy Day in the USA

Today is the election day. May the sane one win.

My favorite article about the election from The Guardian
Forget fear and loathing. The US election inspires projectile vomiting
Here’s an excerpt
Back when America was “great” – say, in the 1970s – the most unpleasant emotions a presidential race might inspire were “fear and loathing”. We expected our political process to provoke antagonism and ennui. We did not expect it to trigger projectile vomiting.

But this year is different, with psychotherapists reporting widespread depression, insomnia and digestive problems among the electorate. Record numbers are voting early, by mail, as if to purge themselves of all connection to the proceedings.

Add in the realization that the whole world is watching this spectacle and the sensitive American is likely to feel something akin to physical shame – as if someone had walked in and found them deflowering a close relative or a pet.

This one looks downright spooky compared to yesterday’s weeping willow.

It’s snowing. Again. Ten weekends in a row. It shouldn’t stick or stay for too long this time around.

Day 5 – 5 Day B&W Challenge

This is the last day of my first and last challenge. It has distracted me from the snow and bitter cold. Maybe my world will soon change from black and white to color.

There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

For my last day, I would like to invite Ben Rowe, at Aperture64. He is a Polish photographer who has done this challenge before and he did a great job. He said he would do it again. Go check out his work.

For those I have not invited, it has been for one simply selfish reason. I have been enjoying your images of early spring and/or late summer in full beautiful color.

Where Am I?
