Something from Nothing – Lisa Couldwell photographs dead things!

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in Something from Nothing | 8 Comments

The weather has been very un-spring like around here lately but Lisa Couldwell has made the best of the grey days with her Something from Nothing submission. Here is what she says:

When it’s a completely lousy day – like today — foggy, grey, cold, icy… I find it a great day to go out for a walk in the ‘hood’ and try “seeing” the beauty of last year’s flowers.  Today was one of those days. I find the light is terrific for this type of photography.  There is still beauty in the remnants of last year’s growth and the warm earth tones just so work for me. Taking pictures of summer colour is great but seeing the true detail, beauty, and life the winter garden still has to offer is one of my favourite things to do this time of year.

    I like them all, Lisa! Very few folks notice Climbing Bittersweet and fewer yet take the time to photograph it.

    Absolute proof that beauty can be found by those who SEE!

    I love details in photography, so i like this too, the dead stuff is often not seen. I made two series with dead stuff and one with almost dead stuff in the last 2 months. You can see them on vivianesphotos.wordpress.com in the nature menu. The cane is my favorite.

    My small garden remains under a light blanket of snow, even so, there’s nothing in it worthy of trying ‘something from nothing’. A lovely set of images, well seen.
