When the grayness of winter leaves me uninspired or there’s not enough time to get outside, there’s always the “backyard” – a patch of woods thick with native plants just outside the windows.

And if that’s not enough on its own, then it’s time to play with the camera and see what happens.

Dwelling in.

Photos taken with a 20mm prime lens, wide aperture, and hand-held movement.


  1. I love the quality of the greens in these pictures Lynne, I like the fact that they’re not so vibrant and much more understated. As you’ve proved, we should never let the weather hold us back..! šŸ™‚

  2. There’s a lovely dreamy sparkle behind these nebulous pictures Lynne . How nice to find such a *playground* just outside your windows šŸ™‚

    • Dreamy is the thing sometimes. The view is dense and it took a while before I got used to “seeing” it – moving here from NYC, where the view was immensely different, I just couldn’t get a handle on it. It slowly, slowly crept into me and I think I can appreciate it better now, thus am able to play with it more successfully.

    • Thank you – or it could be a pastel, right? I was thinking as I processed these how much faster it is to do than it would be to do with watercolor or pastel. Fast isn’t necessarily good, but it sure fits the modern lifestyle.
