Seagrape Surprise

March 7, 2018

Every year, I’m surprised by the beautiful emerging or senescing leaves of the seagrape. Like fall maple leaves up north, no two are ever alike. I’m never in Florida in late summer, when the trees bear edible fruit.

The Celery Fields in Fog 8 (My Mona Lisa)

January 3, 2018

Your indulgence is begged for this one; the conceit may be a bit of a stretch. I recently finished reading (actually, listening to an audiobook of) Walter Isaacson’s Leonardo da Vinci, and my mind was still reeling from what I learned when I saw this tree through my viewfinder. One of the things I found out from the book was that Leonardo was the first painter to depict backgrounds as bluer and less distinct than foregrounds. The fog at the Celery Fields helped give me the bluer and fuzzier background to the leafless tree (with spider web) in the foreground. Thus, my Mona Lisa.
