I failed again. I was awful about getting this “summertime” image for Click of the Wild! But in my defense – I’m still working full time, plus doing my photography business, and trying to get my school stuff worked out. And THEN, when I would finally get 5 minutes to do this, it was raining.
Regardless, it’s Monday night, and I crammed about 10 minutes ago and got these shots in our yard
Enough whining for this post – when I think of summertime, I think of a garden. I grew up working summers in the garden. I think of vegetables. I think of the color ‘green’. So here’s a snippet of summertime to me.
I like the crisp feel of this image. I like the brightness of the tomato in contrast with the background. I like the shape of the vines. And I like the placement of the tomato.
I like this next image because it screams color.
And I adore this last image. I may even have it printed big. Just because I like the lightness of it. The air-like feel.
When I chose “patterns” for the focus of Click of the Wild, I thought about the basics of the word ‘pattern’. But then, being the over-thinker I am, I looked up the definition.
The definition of ‘Pattern’: 1. a repeated decorative design.
So many times lately, I’ve been reminded that we, as humans, are a repeated decorative design. We have patterns; we’re habitual/repetitive creatures. We follow culture, we learn from our surroundings, and although each person is different, we all have a distinct pattern. We may learn from our past, and take on new direction, but it still creates a pattern.
So for this ‘focus’ I tried to think of ways I could photograph my life, as a pattern. My surroundings, my happiness, where I am, and where I want to go.
My mind swirled with ideas, none of these are quite as I pictured in my mind, but you get the picture
