It’s 3:40 AM as I write this. I slept most of yesterday trying to re-set my sleep cycle. Just woke up feeling sort of OK, so I’m going to get as much real-world stuff done as I can.
But because I know how fun it is to sip your morning coffee while looking at photos from your friends, here is a photo essay on the subject of things I found lovely over the weekend.
I like the perspective of the photo. Usually Rothko’s work is photographed straight-on, but I like to see it in its surroundings. The angle gives it a bit of mystery.
Many more beautiful things after the jump.
Because you can never get enough color field goodness…
Below are some highlights of the bazillion photos that graced my twitter feed over the weekend. They are all by Richard Jobson, who seems to have gone on some kind of photo-tweeting rampage, and I like his photos so much that I am afraid I fully encouraged this. He has a real eye for beautiful things and his compositions are strong too. Titles, links and commentary by me.
Photo-tweeting rampage part 1: Saturday
the leaves that are green turn to brown
in the winter I kind of shut down
a sense of ocean and old trees envelops and allures him
Photo-tweeting rampage part 2: Sunday
I want to get my face wet, it’s been buried in the sand for years

There were lots more, but I had to stop somewhere before this turns into Richard Jobson’s personal photo blog.
I learned something about myself this weekend: I don’t think I can EVER get enough trees. It’s from the soul scarring that happens when you grow up in a concrete jungle. There can never be enough trees, enough green leaves, enough green grass. I’d drink it in, eat it up, I’d breathe nature instead of air if I could.
Got something to say? Say it in the comments box below.
how very beautiful all this seems to be!
Thanks for commenting. I’m not bitter at all about how much better his cellphone camera is than my digital SLR. Not at all!
Lovely pictures 🙂
Thanks, Beth. Wish they were mine.
