the farmer's market provides great inspiration for photos.
saturday, i had good friends over for breakfast and we all walked down to the fremont solstice parade. it was so joyful and colorful and lovely that i took two rolls of 120 film on my holga! i can't wait to get those developed and show you the parade. one friend brought homemade ginger vanilla sugar that she broiled on top of sliced grapefruit. wow!
i also, for later in the day, made two batches of ice cream and a pasta salad with basil from my garden. yum.
just an fyi, the photo on my last post was a double exposure with my holga. one shot right side up, the other upside down. of course, inspired by tifanie. it was actually a really bright day but something in the two shots on top of each other made the photo look foggy and almost black and white. thanks for enjoying it!
i have been looking at this lady's blog recently for her stunning shots of life in korea. she just shared a wendell berry poem that stuck with me. i had to pass it along:
The Peace of Wild Things
by Wendell Berry
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time,
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
i'm having a hard start to my monday (maybe because i feel like i should be on summer vacation but i'm now a working stiff and don't get summer breaks), but this poem gives me a little light to give the day a push.
i hope it helps your monday, as well...
