long time passing






"how did it get so late so soon?
its night before it's afternoon.
december is here before it's june.
my goodness how the time has flewn.
how did it get so late so soon?"

- dr. seuss (american writer and cartoonist, 1904-1991)

in a month or so, tender snowdrops will nudge their greenness through the frost, and the neverending cycle of growth - flourishing, fading - will begin again.
in the meantime, though, there is mimicry.
and there are memories.

  2. I always knew the NL had the coolest bikes - - what with fenders, and all that - - but it never occurred to me the handlebars were so cool.
    That's it, it's time for another trip. I'll letcha know when the flight's booked!

  5. Nice threesome, but the first is my favo. Because of the composition and the use of DOF, of course.

  7. Very nice series. I like the softness of the flower in the first contrasted with the hard functionality of the metal bike and the color composition of the second is great. I could look at that one for quite some time (and did).

  9. In this way January may be the cruellest month; so perhaps it is just as well that real flowers start to look like artificial ones.

  10. All three photos look so clean, like they were recently washed by rain. They're packed with feeling. All wonderful.
