Horsey Forest

North Seattle
year 2, day 209

Another day of driving to work as I had a meeting with one of my son's teachers. Some days I don't know how or if I will be able to get this sweet kid with a variety of learning difficulties though the next few years and get him out of high school.

Once again I embarrassed him by simply being myself squatting down in the middle of the school parking lot to take a shot of these horse tail ferns popping up in a swampy area between the asphalt. They were such a beautiful forest of green I couldn't resist. I wish there had been a bit more light but the morning was gray and drizzly.

edit: crop, a touch of cross process and a touch of Intrepid
The green is gorgeous! Love the detail!

They're beautiful and actually look sort of hand-knitted!

Wow this is beautiful. And your son will get through high school and graduate because you are there for him. I know it is tough, frustrating and we won't to give up, but don't because too many other people give up on our kids who shouldn't. He will thank you one day :)

oh gosh - - - i LOVE this shot. The color of course is magnificent, but your focus and dof is great too....and i really love that it "seems" like it is in the rainforest somewhere, but really it is in a parking lot. Great job!

I like the detail you have captured. I guess I have never taken the time to look at these up close. They really are beautiful. Well captured!

beautiful sense of rythym that this imparts... and if we can't embarrass our kids, what joy can we get out of those teenage years ;)
