summer solstice #20

I spent the afternoon finishing up my last slabs for the wood kiln. I thought I'd have an early meal and go back to work after dinner. But the long daylight deceives my internal clock, when I looked up it was 7 instead of what I thought was 5pm. The sun was out which felt like a great occasion and the shadows were brilliant.
I noticed out of the corner of my eye that Zoe was photographing me taking my photograph of the bee balm.I wished I had photos of my mom photographing her plants.

Happy Midsommar! And thanks again for such a brilliant series. Love the shadows in this one!

Happy belated birthday wishes, Catherine.

I am finding this Solstice series captivating. I'm not going to be able to explain this well, but there is an axis to each image that hits this chord in me, every time. They are each different, yet this similar pull. I fall into each photo and feel it for a while.

Thank you.

beautiful picture and vase and flower... love the shadow of vase and flower. posted a pic (not nearly as sublime) of the same bergamot flower today on the blog
