hello!

i’m happy to report that there isn’t much of that white stuff around here anymore. no sir, it’s gone. not much longer until we can celebrate the arrival of spring. it’s a very exciting time for me.

i thought i would post one more view of the stone bridge. i like the moss on the stones in this photo. it adds an interesting texture.

happy st. patricks day! have a pint of guiness and thank the irish for saving civilization :).

peace,

My Black & White Winter

March 11, 2010


henry county, indiana

what wonderful mild weather we are having here on the prairie! the sunshine and warm wind has done wonders for my mood. it’s also been quite kind to my gas account; the heat hasn’t kicked on for several days now. it was wonderful to fall asleep with the silvery moonlight from the full snow moon pouring through my window.

most of my favorite photographs taken this past winter have been black & white. i’ve been drawn to black & white photos for a long time. recently, i was inspired by a collection of ansel adams photos. another favorite photographer of mine is herni cartier-bresson.  oh! as far as black & white in  cinema,  if you ever get the chance, please see the passion of joan of arc.   it’s fabulous.  i promise.

with the passing of winter, it’s time to look forward to spring and all of the fun outdoor activites that come with it. along with spring comes color.

i’ll miss you black & white.

peace,

julayne

Pastoral View

February 2, 2010


henry county, indiana

i’m always on the lookout for idyllic scenes like this. whenever i get caught up in a scene, it gives me great pleasure and a simple, peaceful feeling. another favorite scene for me is spotting a red-tailed hawk sitting majestically on his perch surveying the land around him. to enjoy moments like this, i can’t be zooming down the road or talking on the phone or  going through my to-do list. i have to be in the present; taking it all in with great observation.

nowness.

ps it actually felt warm on the prairie today!
