tree shadows...






















"when words become unclear,
i shall focus with photographs.
when images become inadequate,
i shall be content with silence."

Did I tell you I really liked the pictures of your people dressed in period costumes?

You actually make snow look cosy..what an oxymoron eh?

I haven't heard John Prine since I was 18yrs old! My high school boyfriend took me to see him...wow this brings back memories!!!

These are stunning, Erin! You have such a great eye. My favorite is the fifth one. Can't wait to see the paintings you are working on! (hint hint) xo – g

Beautiful pictures! My eye fell on shadows recently too, in and outside. But we don't have so many, nor such beautifully big trees around and no snow either.
Love the qoute from that great photopgrapher you added at the end.

Much admiration, Anita

Who says black and white is boring?! Gorgeous. Love the quote.

Carole said...

I'd never read that quote from Ansel Adams. He and you are so right....the photos say it all.
We had snow last night and it's "pretty" all over again.

I love your trees! I think that's what I love the most about Winter are the silouettes the trees and branches leave. I never tire of looking at them.

Erin, your post is a great reminder to look at life from a different perspective once in awhile....shadows, negative space, beauty in a reflection or rain puddle.... there IS beauty everywhere! Thank you!

Desert Dreaming said...

I cannot even think of the appropriate words to describe these photographs...they are beyond perfect. Peaceful, and beautiful. How can looking at cold snow, no leafs on trees, be so warm and cozy...Fabulous as always!!!
