I think nature has some favorite ideas, one of which is faces and the heads that support them. I can’t help seeing, and really loving, these characters I find on my walks and paddles.
They are there in rocks, tree trunks, stumps, and branches —among bits of leaves and moss, in snowfields and inside frozen puddles, in shadows and sunlight. At their best, my photos are intimations, maybe even revelations, of the simple fact that life is, after all, made out of aliveness.
I hope you enjoy my found friends!
I have lived in the Pioneer Valley since attending the UMASS nursing program.
