I stumbled across a post of mine from February. It was filled with hope for greener surroundings than I was experiencing at the time, and an image I shot of my back garden using Instagram.
I remember this day, so vividly. We had woken up to yet another heavy snowfall from the night before. I felt that, even though it was so, so far away in days, Spring would be close to me again. I was in the grips of winter, feeling dark, but trying to remain optimistic and cheerful, despite this particularly cold and dark day. It’s not that I become depressed during winter. But when your photography centres around being outdoors, and your feet are constantly cold between November and March – warmer seasons become a bit of a day-dream.
Well, looking around my yard today, seeing the deep, amazing greens that now fill my world and feeling the warm air, that February day seems like it was a life time ago. I guess you could say I have found green, huh?
Two pics of the same garden, same point of view – worlds apart.
