sunshine & bubblegum

March 21, 2013


Apparently, spring is here. Hard to believe given the single digits on the thermometer. It’s the same thing every year – the battle of the seasons. Winter not ready to let go and spring fighting its way in. But worry not, spring will take over eventually. It always has since the beginning of time. Hold tight, people.

Until then, I bring to you a day that felt very much like spring a few weeks ago when Xanthe (the queen of colour) and I headed to Brick Lane with our cameras for some play time. I’m not comfortable with portrait photography – whether I’m pointing the lens at someone or the lens is pointed at me. But this was pure FUN. You saw Xanthe’s amazing pictures. And here’s my little contribution. A wee video. It’s a loop. Fast forwarded and rewound, again and again, like the song. And yet, it seems to metamorphose every time I look at it. Always the same, but somehow different depending on which part of the song I’m listening to. I’m sure there’s a metaphor for life in there somewhere. Or perhaps not. Perhaps it’s just colour and sound. Colour and sound. Something to entice spring out of its hiding place.

    How fun is that continuous loop … kind of mesmerizing! What song/artist is that?

    Awesome, Jeanine! Lovely…. And Xanthe had beautiful photos of you on her site… I’m doing her Journey class right now and just LOVING it!! I have a question for you… with your travels, do you tend to carry both your Pentax and your DSLR? Or do you carry a smaller Digital? Planning a European trip this summer and while I REALLY want to bring my Pentax – I’m scared of having a heavy load (have done that far too often)…. suggestions? 🙂

Penny for your thoughts?
