Under The Trestle

There’s an old railroad trestle that runs along the river here in Petaluma. For the most part its underpinnings are inaccessible to camera toting folks. However, there’s one spot where one can see underneath it and yesterday the midday sun lit up this mass of rocks and rotting pilings. I like this jumble composition and wondered whether it would look better in black and white but when I tried it, I really missed the blue.

Thinking about different ways to express it. Seems that looking at the edges of it works best.

At The Matisse Exhibit

We’ve got a great one going on here in Boston. It’s huge but what makes it so damn interesting is that it includes many of the objects he lived with and used as “subjects” of his paintings. The man was a creative giant. His energy and intelligence were staggering. If you’re in this area by all means go see this one.

Hundreds of tiny petals, shimmering in the sun, don’t really need color. Their frenzied celebration sing a wonderful story.
