Just back from a wonderful catamaran cruise on the yacht,  Sweetest Thing, in the Caribbean.  After a week of sailing, we landed in Newark to find warm weather, trees in bloom, flowers, butterflies and birds chirping.

Spring is here and Summer is not far behind; enjoy the Caribbean’s clear blue water.

I’ve been experimenting with more reflection images and turning  the image led me to look at them differently.  Time to upend the normal.  What do you think?

At this time of the year, I have been thinking about how daylight diminishes daily.  Each morning the sun rises one minute later than the day before and it sets one minute earlier.  That’s two minutes per day and November 1 steals away another hour of daylight.  As the amount of light fades there are still opportunities to create visually beautiful images.

Let’s all remember to take the time to really see our surroundings, no matter what the circumstances.

As Dorothea Lange once said, “A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” . A wonderful  photographer, she was hired by the Farm Security Administration to document the plight of farmworkers in the Great Depression.  A new  book about her work, entitled Dorothea Lange, A Life Beyond Limits by Linda Gordon has recently been published.
