Dawn over the front yard

Over the past few months I’ve casually shot my son’s discarded digital camera, a ten-year-old Kodak. That’s positively ancient in digital camera terms. It’s performed reliably, even under some rough service my son dealt it when he was younger. I’ll review it here tomorrow.

I’ve photographed my yard a lot this year. The front garden is better than it’s ever been and I’m excited to see it!

It was probably about 6:30 this rainy morning when I stepped onto my stoop for this photo. I wanted to see how the camera handled the available light. It decided it needed to fire the flash, but given the distance to my subject all that served to do was illuminate the raindrops. Still, this little camera managed to capture the dawn light’s quality very well.

  1. There must be a bit of emotion here as you tick down the final days in your house. Someday, you’ll look back on these casual snaps and think…”Ah, yes…remember how nice my flowers looked that Summer?”

    • This is the best my front garden has ever looked. It has really come into its own this year. While I’m eager to move on into my future, it’s a shame I won’t be able to enjoy this garden for a few more years yet.

      Leaving this house is hard. I’ve found happiness here. But the happiness I’ve found is, finally, within myself. I know I can take it along with me to anywhere I might live. So I’m trying to remember that my affection for this house is really only displaced affection for myself. Hard-won affection. Something I did not have in the years before.

      I’ve put a lot of film through my cameras this year, but more than half the photos are from around my house. I keep thinking I should get out and take pictures elsewhere, and then I go out into the yard one more time to photograph a new flower.
