pics : fall blooms in film
thank you for your thoughts on our last post, everyone. there certainly are a lot of sentimental folks out there. we're also sentimental and collectors, but needed some moderation (intervention). i'm pretty comfortable with our choices, but not completely. i've cringed a few times this week.
these photos were taken a couple of weeks ago at wave hill. they're in film and you know what that means - photo album. the top photo is of a beautiful bouquet from a wedding that weekend. thanks to the wedding party for leaving it behind for all to enjoy. i love the fall colors. they're so rich and vibrant it's hard to believe we're transitioning into a season of dormancy. it's already getting dark so early.
on another note, i recently read on susannah conway's blog about a wonderful book by photographer andré kertész called the polaroids. after losing his wife of 40 years and in his advanced years, he felt as though he had nothing left in the tank. then, he found a beautiful glass bust and working with an sx-70 given to him by a friend reawakened his creativity through a delightful and poignant collection of polaroids. i would love for charlie to read this book with the hope that he might find something to revive his spirits. he's in great health and could live for many years. he said the other day that he thought he would live a lonely life. we hope not, but there will be a screening process for all callers.
enjoy your weekend. we'll be purging and organizing just a bit more. and, i'm thinking of making a blurb book about my first year with a real camera. and, we'll be hanging out with charlie.
