This is a black and white version (scanned dust mites included) of a sunset in Costa Rica over the Nicoya Gulf in December 2000.
There have been a lot of blogs this week focused retrospectively on the year 2009. Last night I started thinking about not just the last year but the last ten years. Where did the decade go? At first thought it seemed like everything went speeding by until I looked at pictures of my kids ten years ago and then it seemed like a long time ago. I think time is like a rubber band, it stretches and snaps.
Anyway, the room where my pictures are stored is a total disaster and I can't find anything in it. Note to self: clean up the mess in 2010 and get yourself organized!
In response to my total lack of organization, I randomly picked a picture. My daughter and I took a trip to New York City in 2005. The sky in the city is very narrow.
Gleaming New Year's Eve icicles in the sky.
Monet is famous for painting haystacks at different times of day. I am becoming fascinated by endless versions of icicles in all forms of light.
What I am noticing about my pictures over the last ten years is that since I started blogging I now pay much more attention to composition and light and sky. I am very grateful to the blogging world and my new friends in it for inspiring me to become more creative. Here's to another year of beautiful blogging. Cheers!
