summer

Here’s one from our former home, taken eight years ago. I miss the place sometimes and dreamt some about it after we moved (twenty years of living there after all), but I imagine the new owners have settled in nicely.

I hope they appreciate the arbor upon which these roses grow, built ultimately in a traditional Western style – though we were thinking about a Japanese style gateway arch – by local craftsman Henry Hotkowski. It will probably stand forever, as will the deck he built for us there.

There’s almost too much going on in this photo; with the bright afternoon sunlight careening around all the architectural details, everything seems to be vying for attention.

I prefer softer light for these type of shots – perhaps a high overcast day as on the previous post – but nothing remotely close to that was going to happen here until the sun came off the building, probably a couple hours out. And I was in transit.

Such are the realities of serendipitous shooting. But this one is growing on me.

And meanwhile, despite Washington D.C. and the level of political discourse across the land, these neighborhood lilies burst into beautiful song, right on schedule, as they always have. Toxicity will (hopefully) always have its limits.

My friend Larry A. and I were talking about our grade school education in Catholic schools (his in NYC, mine in VT), and the experience of nuns as teachers. It was a fine start to our education, we both agreed, emphasizing as it did those all important basics like reading.

I am extremely grateful to those teachers – and my parents who so believed in education – for giving me every tool they possibly could to prepare me for what lay ahead. If I have any regret, it’s in my own lack of attention to what was offered.

MANY MANY THANKS to each of you, wherever you are now.
