Bits of possibility

I look across the landscape that is my life.  At times, I see gray with hints of color.  The color seems to struggle.  Reds, blues, greens and yellows all represent possibility and are all fighting to be seen.  They have been hidden, buried deep and almost gone.  Often they burst forward, bright and beautiful, only to be pushed into submission by negative thoughts or bad news.  Yet, they come back.  They are a resilient group.  Tonight, they are dim. Tomorrow, I’m hiring a painter.

  1. Standing alone under the vast land, I remembered the red paint on the walls of a small house, that was lonely as I am today. The vast fields, the sky and the trees , bring back pleasant memories ..I close my eyes and see..the red house its near me 🙂

  2. I love the little red shed. Its so pretty. And the red trim of the house. Would never think of painting something that color, but it looks really amazing. Awesome pictures as always Seth!

  3. The way you use color areas against more faded areas is great. These almost look like like black & white photos that have been hand colored. Nice!

  4. I wanted to drop a note to let you know that I’ve mentioned
    you, nominated you as an inspirational blogger. Wonderful posts that inspire poems.

  5. Hi Seth,
    I think that we all can relate. Each day in effect is blank screen, waiting for us to color it.
    Very evocative photos. You might photograph in à similar way to mayself; on feeling or intuition.
    Have a colorful new day.

  6. Hi Seth,
    Despite being logged in to WordPress, your site has me logged out so I can’t press the like button. Needless to say, I liked your post. I’ve had this with a few other sites. Very frustrating. 🙂

  7. Your written word rivals your photo skills – the vision runs deep on both sides. I so enjoy your postings.

  8. These are really beautiful pictures, somehow melancholic and calm, but positive too. There is a sense of resilience about them. Lovely work!

  9. I love that you know the colors are NOT gone, but merely hidden. Never give up on seeking them out, especially when they are nearly invisible. I love the reflectiveness that goes along with your work. 🙂

  10. As always, these are absoutely gorgeous. I love subtle, delicate, yet blatantly lovely they are. Btw, I always greatly enjoy your blog and wanted to share that joy. If you have a moment, please check out my blog – I’ve nominated you for a purely optional reward. Please don’t feel as though you have to participate, but it is an amazing way to connect with other bloggers.

  11. Oh my goodness, these take me back to my days in the UK, heavy frosts that looked like another world had been uncovered. I LOVE those splashes of colour!!

  12. Best so far. Absolutely love the grey with the shots of colour. The contrast makes it so much more powerful and poignant. These photos remind me that life is beautiful because of both the shadows and the light.

  13. One of these days I want to learn how to edit photos so you can add a splash of color to a b & w. I love that look. I still haven’t figured out the layers thing on my photo editing program – I don’t know why I can pick some things up so easily and others make me feel (very) blonde – lol… Beautiful photos Seth.

  14. I’m enjoying all your photos–beautiful! Living in Scotland made me wish I were a photographer! Instead, I have to try to capture the beauty with words, which doesn’t usually do justice to a beautiful scene. Oh, and thank you for liking my blog 🙂
