after the party
i picked some prairie tall grass today to photograph. the heavy seed heads and the elegant arc of the stems caught my eye. but when i got home and studied them, i was struck by how much the curled up leaves and abundant seeds looked just like confetti and streamers. i knew once i stripped the seeds and stems there would be no going back, but it had been a good day, and i was in a celebratory mood . . .
