|07:45 pm - Five from North Beach Park|
Skunk Cabbage II (a few days later)
Tank Documentation 5 (Remembering Fish)
North Beach Park, Seattle
The park felt much more alive today. Lots of different bird calls, more skunk cabbages sprouting, I saw a spider weaving a web, insects hovering in the sunlight. I frequently think if someone had reached into my subconscious and designed a park just for me, I wouldn't like it as much as North Beach Park, because there would be no surprises.
Every morning there is more and more birdsong. Unseen twittering come from the depths of the junipers (just what are they doing in there?) and soon all sorts of bulbs will be blooming even in my tiny garden.
In just Spring!
The daffodils and bluebells will be up soon. Yeah!
The crocuses have blossomed at my house (over a week ago, actually), and the daffodils are budding. The tree peony is sprouting new leaves, and this morning it looked like the Himalayan honeysuckle was doing the same.
Lovely photos. I especially like the skunk cabbage and the fungus. The colors on the fungus are really nice, including the branch and the blurry background.
Spring seems to be springing. Monday I found the two fat squirrels who eat the bird suet eating my crocuses. One had a purple bloom in his mouth. At the ranch, it was Spring like, but the trees really told the story of late winter.
The photo Tank Documentation 5 caught my imagination, however the name "remembering fish" leap to mind because the rust mark at the left reminds me of what the after image of a dissolving fish might look like. All lovely photos.
Wow, I really see the fish now that you mention it. Yeah! Thanks!
It could also be that art form where the artist inks a fish, and then makes a print from it. (I forget what it's called, or even if it's Japanese or Chinese.)
I like the photo as it is, although I think my "title" adds a dimension, as titles should. What you refer to is called a "rubbing." Fish are one type of rubbing, and gravestones are another. I actually know how to do a gravestone rubbing, but with little experience. I have the concept of how to do a fish rubbing, but no experience.
