Morning Tulips, Morningside, and the Weekly Snapshot

January 28, 2014 § 4 Comments

My beautiful tulips met their maker today, but before they completely passed on, I took some final photographs. Yesterday morning the subtle light was nice for snapping the bouquet from various vantages.

The Morningside After Dark series is my favorite winter event. Basically, it’s a hip church-basement coffee-house talent-show social. Members of Edina’s creative Morningside community put on a cozy evening of storytelling featuring exceptional writers and musicians. Original tales, essays, and poems were interwoven with live original music, all supplemented with sustenance in the form of homemade baked goods and coffee — always delicious, always in abundance.

Organizers Laurie Lindeen, James Mahoney, and Rebecca Sorenson warmly hosted the show, and Jeff Robertson kept the entertainment flowing seamlessly with his stage direction. Last year I left every event impressed with the kaleidoscope of local talent they gathered, and last night was no different.

And despite the extreme cold, the place was packed. It always is.

Far and Away (and the Weekly Snapshot)

On nights like this, I follow the luminescent moon, waiting for it to swell as I inch forward. Yet it consistently remains 238,900 miles out of reach.

Far and away

Yesterday: blue sky, melting ice. Today: snow, wind, and the reminder that we’re only a month into winter.

Still can’t break the daily photo habit. Here are the January 8-14 highlights (some posted earlier in the week, some not):

Variations on a Purple Theme (and the Weekly Snapshot)

January 8, 2014 § Leave a comment

Purple appeared today in various forms.

I also wanted to share my daily photos from January 1-7. Some I’ve already posted, others not. As I consider the whole, I’m pleased with unintended themes: blues and whites, cold, and spheres.
