. . . . . . . . . . . . .

hazy, gauzy, foggy, grey, blurry, dim, cloudy, misty.

and in between, a scrapbook of light.  the book pictured above is “come darkness“, a book of photographs by my friend, maria alexandra vettese. it has been so grey in london lately, and maria’s book is a source of light and a thoughtful meditation on the nature of winter darkness.

have a good weekend, all.  i’ll see you back here next week.

    Kids in the curtains! So great. I remember thinking I was completely hidden while playing in the curtains.

    Really, really beautiful.

    love the feeling of these.

    that’s it! i’ve officially run out of ways to tell you how beautiful your photos are. i’ve used every synonym in the book but they all boil down to a single word. WOW!

    These are so lovely, Brian. It looks like Seattle, my hometown, but it’s fun thinking about everyone there seeing the same things we see here, but remarking about them in an English accent.

      these were actually taken in maine. although some maine people have an accent all their own…

    This is a beautiful set. I love the way you staggered the foggy landscapes, book photos, and kids in sheer curtains. Perfect.

    beautiful work!!

    This book of photograph seems so pretty.. I like the mystery of those photographs! The color tone are awesome.

    there is a haunting beauty to these landscapes, punctuated by the kids playing hide and seek with the sheers. wonderful.

  20. January 15, 2011 1:37 am

    hi brian! here mercedes, from buenos aires. i don’t usually comment, but i’ve been reading your blog lately, and i had to say your photos are intimate and moving; made me realized i was needing a darker, more taciturn inspiration. thank you.

  26. January 17, 2011 7:31 pm

    Love the cloudy, foggy, misty, gray. Good weather for reading and thinking! thanks for these :-)

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, and each time you post I’m tempted to leave a comment, but I always feel like my words are inadequate to talk about the images you create. They are simply sublime. That seems like a good enough word!
