Día de los Muertos

Laura González, Día de los Muertos, LA MILPA, RVA 2018

“Day of the Dead originated several thousand years ago with the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. For these pre-Hispanic cultures, death was a natural phase in life’s long continuum. The dead were still members of the community, kept alive in memory and spirit—and during Día de los Muertos, they temporarily returned to Earth.”

Landscape therapy

My second metal print……………
Maybe my last planned photograph, for years getting to landscapes was more than therapeutic for me. This summer constant conflict and eyesight have pretty much halted the journey.

My love for seeking out the common raven to photograph was because the deplorable among us were so eager to kill them off through out our history that they can only be found in our remote national parks.

 

Great Falls was a landscape that took my breath away, very healing feel.

 

Nickel Bridge 2012

 

I feel very fortunate for living a life in the cradle of the new world and was once described as such by this historical marker. In some way you have to ask WTF happen?

The Blue Heron Rookery was directly down the hill on the river from the Capitol until 2015. Even though this photo is one of my parlor tricks it’s a great memory of these wonderful birds downtown.

On their current brochure is printed : “This building is, beyond comparison, the finest, the most noble, and the greatest in all America.” _ A Visitor to the Capitol from France, 1796.

 

My favorite landscape of D.C. taken in 2010.

 

Bolting

“Bolting is the production of a flowering stem (or stems) on agricultural and horticultural crops.”

Due to a horrible family tragedy I lost focus on the Garden.

A 2012 photograph of my beloved cat Sweetie we lost last year. I haven’t been able to search out photographs of her because of the grief.

 

death & lawnmower

Attended funeral this morning.
My vintage lawnmower threw a rod mid-day.
Hours searching for this 2016 photo, suppose I should have taken better care of this machine I have enjoyed through the years.
