PHOTOPAGE 409

   

   

 

July 2010

This year's July, a very hot month - with temperatures frequently in the 90s and little rain. But Summer is with us for only awhile and I usually feel regret at the end of the season.

409.2 Black Locust Robinia pseudoacacia

Above is a color negative of some Black Locust leaves with a little additional color adjustment. The Black Locust is very common to the area. On the left (409.3), a falling seed has pierced a standing Milkweed plant creating a mini-sense of danger from an unexpected source. Below (409.6) the Hibiscus-like Rose or Swamp Mallow show large (6 inch) blooms on tall stalks.

 409.6 Rose Mallow Hibiscus moscheutos

Below is another color inversion which creates a delicate feel. The 'false fish' on the left (409.13) is simply an enhanced section bringing out the subtler natural illusion which is actually a rock under the falls at a canal lock.
