Tomorrow, there will be sun. According to reports, it will even be warm! 81 degrees F, to be exact. I will probably be grumpy – my body takes a little while to get used to temperature changes. I’m not a big fan of sudden, big shifts. I imagine I was some kind of cold-blooded amphibian in a former life.
Anyway, spring is about to explode, and with it, summer light is ushered in. You know that eye-curdling, bright sunshine that makes us hide behind our sunglasses, smear gallons of sunscreen on our pale, wintry skin, and that suddenly makes photography terribly challenging. Last week, it was still raining, and as it happened, the light caught the raindrops as rhinestones strung up on thin wires, dripping off the barn roof. So, in anticipation of warm, dry weather in the days to come, I’m going to, once more, savor the gift of water. Before long, I will likely want to crawl back beneath the rock from whence I once came. (I’m telling you, the urge to lurk in the shade is still a prominent part of my genetic make-up.) Anyway, Portlanders and others – enjoy the sunny day!
