Last month I posted a series of ten sun drenched film photographs from our holiday trip to Puerto Rico. We experienced more than a bit of climate shock to return to the frozen north and we seemed to develop this 'look' between us. The silent look that whined "I want to go baaaaack."
Back to reality. This month's series of ten film photographs were shot on January 10th. Winter in Michigan, the direct contrast of winter in the Caribbean. Winter in Michigan, where I cower indoors under multiple wooly layers, feeling like a bear hermit-ing away deep in a cave, always looking out the windows. And since I have no choice but to go outside many times a day, always yearning to be back on the warm side of the glass.
Today the ground is bare, the snow has melted and the sun shone for a day, but it is frigid cold and the snow will likely return. I take my dog for her daily walk and as I dream about hot days at the lake and tending my vegetable garden in bare feet, I notice the tiniest green crocus and daffodil sprouts braving their way through the earth. And I know the worst is behind me.
Fellow photographers Bethany and Charlene also shared 10 film photos this month. Please go view Bethany Petrik's blog from Woodland, CA which will then lead to Charlene Hardy's.
