Change


Spring brings change to Central City, as temporary as it is.

Spring brings change to Central City, as temporary as it is.

This picture fits into my Ten Year Project very well. Especially in mid-spring. Well, almost late spring for us. It’s about rebirth. Yellow is about joy. Flowers are about happiness. Green. Well, what can I say about the new, fresh greens of Spring? You just like them. Right?

But.

Lurking in the background is an abandoned house. The door is boarded up. It still has a fairly readable Katrina Cross. And yet, the lawn is has been mowed recently. The stoop is clear and clean. There is no litter anywhere. Somebody cares about this house. Maybe, one day they’ll get to come home.

Isn’t that the real reason for rebuilding New Orleans? So that anyone who wants to come home can come home.

  1. Hi Ray, so far I haven’t been able to get back to your New Mexico photos, seems like my free WIFI doesn’t like, or the lesser gods are interfering, or something. But one day I will have a really strong connection (it happens occasionally) and I’ll take a look. I surely like those yellow flowers too.

    • The easiest way with a not so strong wifi is just to go to categories. Go to Albuquerque and click. The pictures should be small enough to not take up much bandwidth. It’s not all the work from that time, but it’ll give you an idea.

  2. Wonderful image. Your limited depth of field works really well to separate the flowers from the house while adding a bit of mystery to the scene.
