“In my experience, birds are as fine and appropriate a lens through which to assimilate life as anything else. A list of the birds one has seen can unspool a ribbon of detail, the chance occurrences that create our singular lives, the minutiae that might be lost in the clutter were it not for this unique kind of record . . . ”

Truly remarkable creatures, humming birds…I’m freezing yet covered head-to-toe in warm winter clothing. He’s shielded by little more than a few feathers and a stunningly high metabolism. I’m glad he was able to bask in the sun for a bit—he’s certainly earned it.

“The robin flew from his swinging spray of ivy on to the top of the wall and he opened his beak and sang a loud, lovely trill, merely to show off. Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off - and they are nearly always doing it.”
–Frances Hodgson Burnett, ‘The Secret Garden’

I rarely indulge in posting selfies, but I wanted to share how much I’ve enjoyed my photographic adventures with my husband (@msladekphoto) over the last year. I’m looking forward to 2018 and another year of loving and growing together, as a couple and in our creative lives.

“and dreaming about things in the past and the future - the timelessness of the rocks and the hills - all the people who have existed there. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.”
