Day 89 — Jane Avril

Mmmmmmm, coffee... and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is a favorite of mine too.

Day 88 — Floorscape, Good Friday

I believe this floorscape is self explanatory.

Day 87 — Wallscape, Spring

This is the what I see when I look up from my work station and is the background image for this blog page. It first appeared on Day 28, however, now that the sun's arc has changed with the onset of spring, the resulting shadows have become more dramatic.

Day 86 — Tulip in the Rain

The potted tulips on the balcony were treated to a light rain. This photo was taken a few hours after the rain and the droplets had graduated in size as they evaporated off.

Day 85 — Noir

I took this shot from my desk. The inexpensive bowl from Pier 1 looks more majestic with all the film noir lighting effects swirling about.

Day 84 — iDada

Very early in the morning, just minutes after sunrise, my iMac is perfectly reflected against the wall. Beside it sits my set of auction catalogs for the estate of Andre Breton. I am a huge fan of Dada and even maintain a website for "Exquisite Corpse".

Day 83 — On Top of Day 51

I'm playing with you now. I photographed this pot of tulips against a canvas print of my photo from day 51.

Day 82 — Cohncave in a Convex

The Alessi "Cohncave" bowl strikes again!

Day 81 — Floorscape With Bananas

An odd pairing I agree, but I couldn't resist.

Day 80 — What Am I Looking At?

I'm not sure what I am photographing here — the orchids or the lighting. The partially closed blind creates laser like images in the early morning.

Day 79 — Staircase at Front Door

As the sun starts moving toward its summer schedule the light at sunrise changes the room dramatically.

Day 78 — Down on the Floor

Can one be too minimalist? The shadows on the floor just grab me every time. I'd love to do a show of just the 'floorscapes.'

Day 77 — White and Black

I know you've been missing the tulips — it is spring after all. I think this image works because it is divided down the middle (black and white) with the shadows in the white square and sunlit flowers in the black square.

Day 76 — Flying High

I startled myself with this shot off the balcony. It looks like I am flying over the clouds rather than only standing on the fourth floor balcony. I like the way the 'rule of thirds' plays out with the deep gray at the top, mid gray sky center and clouds on the bottom.

Day 75 — Cohncave

It's been a while since I photographed the Alessi "Cohncave" bowl. The actual bowl is the curve on top and its resulting shadow is the shape below.

Day 74 — Into the Light

I broke all the rules with this shot. I shot into the light which made the flowers delicately translucent.

Day 73 — Protrusion II

Last Thursday I posted "Protrusion" from a different angle. I like this one in the way it flattens the plane and is a little more confusing to the eye.

Day 72 — Guacamole

Got the fixings for a great guacamole, and it tastes so much better from a molcajete.

Day 71 — Shannon

We have a dark chocolate wall in the kitchen which I like to use for portraits. Portrait photography is the rare occasion I pull out the flash. This time it is bounced off a low white ceiling.

Day 70 — Last Hurrah

Now I have to find another subject; these tulips have given their all.

Day 69 — Tulip Love

Last week's tulips still have a lot to offer, so long as the sun adds a helping hand.

Day 68 — Staircase

My first post in this blog was of the staircase. Here it is in a slightly different mood.

Day 67 — When Life Gives You Lemons...

A friend has a lemon tree that fruits 365 days a year. What better subject for a 365 day blog? It was the translucency of the leaf (lit from beneath), that prompted me to snap this picture.

Day 66 — Protrusion

I can see this protrusion from my bed and thought it might be fun to isolate it in an image.

Day 65 — Open Tulips

The tulips have now opened nicely. Although we face east, at this time of year the apartments opposite us reflect the setting sun exquisitely for about 5 brief minutes each evening.

Day 64 — Closed Tulip

Today is my partner's birthday, which means there are fresh cut flowers in the house. Let's see what I can squeeze out of these tulips.

Simple geometrics with a splash of sunlight.

Day 62 — Mask with Wine Rack

The jagged shadow is emanating from the wine rack on the wall, but so long as it's not in shot I think it adds to the African theme.

Day 60 — Green Apple at Warp Speed

A ripe green apple has its reflection distorted by the kitchen countertop.
