Flower Power

"Nostalgia is powerful, and images that harness that nostalgia are among the most compelling and universal images."    David duChemin, Within The Frame

I can hardly wait to get my favourite green house so I can flood my deck with God's beautiful flowers!  In the meantime I'll keep myself happy by looking at photos I took from last years arrangements :-)  It's not quite flower planting time here in Nova Scotia, we are still having some pretty chilly weather,  we'll get there though!

Thought I'd try a simple antiquing filter for the second shot.

Wanted to share a few more shots I took while roaming around the countryside where I grew up.  All around me are memories and remnants of what use to be...

This first shot is of my uncle's farm, a 3rd generation farm that never made it to the 4th generation, nor did my father's.   These family run farms died out when the two brothers passed from this life.  We are left with memories and remnants, and I try to honour them with my photos.
