a peak example
okay, so. i talk a lot about how the perfect example of something, when the flower is in full bloom or the leaf is in peak color for example, is typically not my favorite time to capture my subjects. partly it is because they are already documented to death in those glorious states of perfection. but also, it is because i truly find the moments just before or just after full expression to be more interesting–more expectant, or more melancholy for example. but then, yesterday i was moving the sprinkler around to some of my new plantings, and nearly tripped over this absolutely sculptural jack in the pulpit, and mr. jack seduced me completely. so, on the list of things i have learned from doing STILL, we can safely add: never say never.
