Nature and Color
I'm a NYC city girl. I love buildings, sidewalks, graffiti, sharp angles, sarcasm, high heels, NPR, and I dress, mostly in black.
But spring is upon us so I decided to do something unusual. I went to the Denver Botanical Gardens and took my camera to see and record what's happening. Spring is renewal -- what has died is coming back to life. While there are aspects of this season I like (bleeding hearts in my garden — my Mom's favorite flower), my color palate is not happy. I like rich, jewel tones and this vision of pastels doesn't satisfy me. I love the colors of summer and fall.
But, surprise! I saw this flower sporting complementary colors and I was blown away. Maybe spring has some inspiration for me after all!
What seasons inspire you?
