Solace at The Phipps

Another week and spring is three weeks old with freezing temperatures and snow once again on the way. There is only one place in Pittsburgh you can really see Spring today and that is at the Phipps Conservatory Spring Flower Show.

This plant has always amazed me because of its texture and the way it refracts light waves. At certain times of day it is almost as if you can see into the leaf structure. So if like me you find the current Spring weather depressing head over to the Phipps to take shelter from the storm.

Rain Rain Go AWAY!

I look forward to this time of year. It is my birthday month and usually the weather has broken and the flowers are rising. However here in Pittsburgh it refuses to stop raining. I don’t know who is taking this worse me or my dog.

I look outside and see all the daffodils beaten into submission by the rain. I really shouldn’t complain, some people have had their houses slide way. I will take solace by looking at old images of flowers until the weather breaks…sigh.

A Coaching Moment

This is part of a series of three images taken during the Black and Gold Game in Bradenton Florida last month.It was great to see the expressions change during this short discussion about a missed catch in right field. It and some other sequences that I have captured have made me think of a potential book or gallery project called “Trips”. It would be an odd size book so maybe better as a gallery installation but I am way ahead of myself. I am still editing my novel and no other book project will happen ahead of “DreamMap”

Black and Gold

Spring comes early in Central Florida. Flowers bloom, temperature rise and trees leaf out. However, the real harbinger of Spring is when the boys start to play baseball.

The Black and Gold game is a seven inning inter squad exhibition game. It was a little confusing because both teams wore the same uniforms. McKechnie Field in Bradenton is a cute little stadium and being so close to the action was thrilling.

Pitchers and Catchers

Although Spring is still a month away, the first event of Spring happens next week. Pitchers and catchers will report to all MLB teams by the end of next week and the following week exhibition games begin.

Some people in northern climes look for the arrival of the Robin as the first sign of Spring but not me. Play Ball!
