Real reflection…

Eating another delicious lunch at the 15th Street Fisheries in Ft. Lauderdale’s Marina this reflection in the water of the dock caught my attention. The mesh screen between us and the water is there to keep birds away from our food; though they are skilled at grabbing it in the air when Tarpon feeding is happening. When you go plan to feed the Tarpon in this water between dock and restaurant. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Restorative reflections…

Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum) began its long bloom period a little early this summer in St. Louis. Actually, it began blooming in early June, at the end of springtime. This allowed me to create these images in a garden I passed during a morning walk. Such walks and encounters dispel anxieties and remind me of their triviality. Daisys also remind me of my mother; they were her favorite flowers. So many emotions worked through me during this particular walk; therapeutic reflections of life as I admired these mid-life blooms.

Shasta Daisys in abundance. This image has a few in focus in the lower part of the image so that you can grasp the full abundance of this Daisy garden. Copyright 2027 Pamela Breitberg

While the ground thaws…

Record breaking snows and arctic cold temperatures this Chicago winter leads to temporary flooded fields while we wait for the ground to thaw enough to absorb the melted snow. Meanwhile nature’s neutral tones of preserved patterns make for interesting compositions.
