A little comfort from the cold

Comfort from the cold © Steven Willard

Such a common sight, a cup of coffee, especially as it gets colder, at least here in North America. Most of us take a cup of coffee for granted. But did you ever wonder how many cups are consumed every day? According to Wikipedia the number is a staggering 2.25 billion cups per day. Just thought you would find that interesting.

Of Hieronymous Bosch © Steven Willard

The first thing I thought of on converting this image to black and white was the paintings of Hieronymous Bosch and the writhing, tortured figures in his paintings of Hell. But that’s just me.

The look of large format

I was hoping to emulate the look of a large format negative contact printed on platinum paper.

*My apologies to Burt Bacharach and Hal David 🙂

Post 4th of July

In honor of 4th of July

For me the 4th of July used to be a much more colorful and joyous day. I miss those times when things weren’t so dark, when our country was more hopeful.

Spring wildflowers and hay bales © Steven Willard

I had driven past this spot countless times knowing there should be a picture here, but always finding it lacking something, until this day. The wildflowers in front, the rolls of hay beyond, all lit by a soft overcast provided a shadowless effect.

Wouldn’t you like to have a quiet spot just big enough for one comfortable chair and a lamp to read by? Close enough to walk to easily, but far enough that you won’t be distracted by everyday stuff. No phone alllowed!
