Spaces

The more I photograph, the more I realize that I am drawn to very intimate spaces. Grand spaces generally don’t intrigue me nearly as much, at least in terms of my photography. I also have the tendency to be drawn back to the same space over and over, witnessing how it changes depending on the light or┬áthe passage of time. These images are random ones from the past month or so, of various spaces that you may have seen before, but perhaps under different conditions. Some are just brief moments that I photographed in an attempt to hold on to them in my mind; I found them significant in some way at the time, and wanted that moment to stick.

And, meet Gwynn, who lives in my studio. The plant’s growth is explosive; these image were shot just a few weeks apart. I plan to keep documenting the growth, but it is slowly (or not so slowly) taking over my studio I think.

As a bit of a teaser for you all, I just returned from a trip to New York City, so images from that trip will be up in the (hopefully) near future. Also, more moments of light are on their way. Happy Monday everyone!

291/366 – Propagating

I replanted one of my succulents the other day, and decided to try to propagate some of the leaves. Basically all you do is gently pull off a leaf from the stem, let it dry out for a few days, and then place them on top of wet soil for a few weeks (or so I have read). I had planted one leaf in some soil a bit ago, and it grew roots but no other leaves. I’m hoping these do better so that I can have some new plants soon!
