Spring Busy

I forget: Photos look so cool when they are printed. Especially at big sizes, like 8" x 10". I've been going through my archives, especially since getting the Canon, and picking out lots of photos to turn into prints. They look good. I'm really pleased. That camera rocks. I ADORE the paper (Moab Lasal Photo Luster [now called Exhibition Luster]). It's kind of a matte/semi-gloss. It reminds me of honed Carrera marble. Technology. Awesome. Anyway, I have to admit that, content-wise, the photos look pretty cool together as a group. I think there's a story in them, somehow. The story of these days. Maybe pictures are more like a poem than a story. No linear plot. Little glimpses. Distilled (like a poem). I can't write it. I can print the colors of it on paper, and hold the pages in my hands. I look into them and see the details, sometimes the big picture. As if I could.


Perhaps your next book should be full of photography? Like this:
only Posie style. :)

Oh my gosh, I love this photo! Great tea still life.

Your style is your's alone.
I just love it.
Calming with lots to notice.

This picture is magical! I want to hang it on my wall!

You are amazing. I've read your blog daily for a few years. Thank you so much for enriching all of our lives. You inspire me daily - and so many others. God bless you for that.

A lovely tableau!

What Susan said!

Oh! Someone suggested an address book with your pictures in it. That would be awesome! A calendar is nice, but you're done in a year. An address book you can cherish and use for many years. I would love that! I think that would fly off the shelves! I've had my address book for a longgggggg time and it is falling apart. I'm willing to wait! ;0)

Beautiful picture! It's fun to see you in the lid of the tea pot. :)

Looks like a very elegant I spy pic. your photos are alyways amazing!!

Yes!! Your photos, Alicia, are your poetry to us!! Thanks for it all!!

You always have such beautiful photos! Wanted to drop you a note and let you know I've started the daisy chain alphabet sampler : thecalicolover.blogspot.com/2012/04/work-in-progress-alphabet-embroidery.html :) Happy spring!

Beautiful -- they kind of remind me of a refined version of the "I Spy" books my daughter has. In a GOOD WAY!
Love every little thing you do.

I'm feeling a lifestyle book from you. Hm? Recipes, things to do, life stories, all set in the PNW, as told by your awesome photos and your marvelous words. I want to read it! :o)

Well, there is most certainly a story in THAT photo up above....it makes me think of Beatrix Potter. :-) Plus, it makes me want to have tea RIGHT NOW and look at seeds. Then sketch them. You really post so much more than just one photo!!

I loooove the photo in this post.

Lovely Alicia--truly lovely. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and pictures.

The light in the posted image. In many of your images is magical.

I don't know why but right off the bat I saw your reflection in the tea pot lid. Still a really great photo!
