(and it’s not over just yet)
“You must know that there is nothing higher and stronger and more wholesome and good for life in the future than some good memory, especially a memory of childhood, of home. People talk to you a great deal about your education, but some good, sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. If a man carries many such memories with him into life, he is safe to the end of his days, and if one has only one good memory left in one’s heart, even that may sometime be the means of saving us.”
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
“One’s not half of two; two are halves of one.”
~ E.E. Cummings
Kicking back, playing with diptychs this week. Can’t believe it’s August already.
I will be here, there and everywhere for the next few weeks, squeezing in as much summer fun as time allows. I will continue to post but like last year at this time, I am shutting the comments off until September.
Enjoy the rest of August, the light is pretty amazing!
Part of a summer-long photo project I’ve been working on with Happy Gatherings Photography, inspired by the paintings of John Singer Sargent. Most of the photos in this series were styled at Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton, Massachusetts, a property of The Trustees of Reservations. Truly a labor of love!
A photo exhibit is planned for later this year at The Bradley Estate.
