Comparisons

It is interesting to see how things fit together.  The above photo is the last remnant of the most recent winter cold and snow-once the majority of the snow had melted, the left-over fall maple leaves were blowing about.  It is intriguing to see the hallmarks of the sequential seasons paired.

Speaking of the melt, with temperatures on the rise, fog settled over the area.  The softness of the fog provides a pleasing backdrop to the much more angular and edgy human-made creations.

Nature, of course, can be quite edgy, too.  Visually, there is a fair amount of similarity between the subjects in the two photographs.

Alternately,  nature also provides smooth, flowing edges as well.  Pretty nice to have flowers to add scent and colour to these grey days.  This serves as a reminder of the Spring yet to come, which makes time the final comparison here.

This particular flower is already on the slide down from fresh to not-so-fresh.  While nothing photographic is permanent, this image will certainly last much longer than will the natural subject.  That is one of the appeals of photography:  there is a record of what once was, especially for when what was is no longer.

Take care.
