The Cooperative

Lindentree Farm, Lincoln, Massachusetts

... on my left are farm fields... like an army... orderly, in rows... growing under careful human supervision... on my right is a narrow strip of land... where grasses have escaped and formed the cooperative with other escapees... where butterflies come for a visit... and I enjoy watching...

Summer Collage

Lincoln Conservation Land, Massachusetts

... walking alongside meadow... a leftover between the swamp and the gardens... and the trail which brings the passerby so close but not closer... I stop and look at the collage of colors and forms... without a scheme... where each finds a space for life... and enchants observers...

Lincoln: ... summer collage...

Lincoln: ... without a scheme...

Lincoln: ... where each finds a space...

Lincoln: ... and visitors are welcomed...

Lincoln: ... if you can find the way...

Lincoln: ... following her footsteps...

Lincoln: ... or stay aside... and watch...

Do you see Me?

... approaching the boathouse... getting closer to the stone wall... Do you see Him? Pjer asks... Where? Whom?... Step back... Oh, yes... the eyes, the nose, the lips... we, humans, call IT Gestalt... the ability of brain to perceive forms out of points, lines, curves... profiling the world with the help of our knowledge... if I could only ask this bird...

Sudbury River: ... approaching the boathouse...

Diving Colors

Walden Pond, Massachusetts
... Walden is blue at one time and green at another... Lying between the earth and the heavens, it partakes of the color of both. Viewed from a hilltop it reflects the color of the sky; but near at hand it is of a yellowish tint next the shore where you can see the sand, then a light green, which gradually deepens to a uniform dark green... In some lights, viewed even from a hilltop, it is of a vivid green next the shore. Some have referred this to the reflection of the verdure... and it may be simply the result of prevailing blue mixed with the yellow of the sand. Such is the color of its iris...
