a dark mood
sumac is so pretty and the red of its leaves is usually so cheerily candy red, that the urge becomes almost irresistible to photograph it in a smiling, innocent mood. which i have done, as many of you know, quite a bit over the six year life span of STILL blog. but this year my background is black, not white, and i have already fully explored the happy possibilities of sumac’s joyful scarlet. red, as it happens, is also the color of blood, and passion, and dying suns, and velvet church pews. so i give you some sumac to brood on.
