Snow Light: From A Year Ago

Snow Light

This is one of my favorite photos ever because Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine are simply so gracefully composed, and that grace and pose are completely natural. It’s looked like a painting for a long time, perhaps after all these sketches it may be time to get to it.

Nothing special, just brother and sister quietly sitting together looking out into the backyard from the second floor window. It’s one of the best vantage points in the house; from the top of the little armoire at the top of the stairs they can see into the two bedrooms, down the stairs and out the back window and, to a limited extent, out the front windows in the bedrooms.

But I was appreciating how my glass pendant so beautifully complements their eyes and their lovely graceful poses.

The Stinkbug!

The stinkbug.

In honor of Giuseppe’s encounter with a stinkbug this morning I thought I’d dig out the photos of the Fantastic Four when they were the Amazing Adolescents, at 18 months old exploring their domain. They encountered a stinkbug innocently walking on the landing and it became the most important thing in their world for at least 15 minutes. I made a slideshow out of the 11 photos I took of their encounter, added music, and converted it to a movie! I’m so glad I’ve finally got things set up to be able to do this.

The music is “Moderato allegro ma non troppo moderato”, the theme “The Cat” from “Peter and the Wolf” composed by Sergei Prokofiev, Leopold Stokowski conducting the All American Orchestra. You may recognize it when you hear it even if you don’t know the piece of music, but from Saturday morning cartoons.

I can’t embed videos on this site yet, so click here to view it on YouTube!
