Few things are more delicate, fresh, and lovely than raindrops on petals (roses or otherwise). There’s also a depth to the light that emerges after a storm – a softness and subtlety that brings out the richness of colors more than sunshine ever could.
If I know my kids, this is more than a puddle of dandelion threads in a Tonka truck bed; it’s a magical YELLOW potion in progress. It’s hard to number the things we love most about our children, but I’d have to place their boundless imaginations in the Top 5.
Talk about color! Just when we all needed a boost…Mom to the rescue! She brought smiles, snacks, her usual helping hands, and an abundance of sunshine. Oh, and daisies, too! Thanks, Mom, for making everything a little brighter.
I think this is my most successful- or at least my favorite – street photograph. It is part of the North of the 45th Parallel annual Upper Midwest juried exhibition at The Devos Art Museum at Northern Michigan University in Marquette. I had this half-baked idea that I could take a road trip to the U.P. for the opening of the show Friday night. It’s not happening but it sure would be a beautiful drive. Maybe later this summer?
