Springtime, from my lens to yours …


Other than the colors of Spring being spectacular I have never been a fan. Why you ask?

 Well, I like to say that Spring is our coldest season … and it is.  In the Winter time one dresses for the weather, but in the Spring season the temperatures can range from hot to down right cold  … and my coats are no where to be found.



But this year is different. This year I have enjoyed every day, rain or shine, snow or sleet. I have become one with nature, another silver lining in this bizarre and peculiar time.

  With this virus controlled economy, and the state of being, I have had more time on my hands than necessary.

The upside? I have been out and about.  Fortunately, I live in a small community that has allowed its citizens to enjoy Gods ‘green’ earth.

Spring is the season of new beginnings, the buds are in bloom, critters are out and about, and the earth seems to rejoice once again.  However, if you blink you will miss it.

This is where I come in …










How fortunate am I to have enjoyed, and loving, every minute I can of this cold, yet exquisite time of year.






I am optimistic about life today.

This beauty, this metaphor,

 cannot be overshadowed, beaten down, or destroyed by a few more than necessary naysayers.

Good will prevail!




The definition of Optimism:

* a disposition or tendency to look on the more favorable side of events or conditions and to expect the most favorable outcome.

* the belief that good ultimately predominates over evil in the world.

* the belief that goodness pervades reality.




Let’s enjoy this very awkward time that will never, God willing, happen again.  Count your blessings, enjoy your family and friends, take walks with the appropriate distance, wear a mask if required, or stay 6 feet away. Most importantly, don’t succumb to fear.

If you do, you lose.

Keep your head together, be your own best advocate, educate yourself, read both sides of the coin, check the facts, be safe and keep positive.  It’s a slippery slope when one gives up.  We must keep our wits about us, we must not stop living 

God Bless !

  2. mitch! you need to petal :))) your photos to galleries. they are spectacular. just try. you may be surprised! do a series of photos on 5 different things and take them in. you have a talent!

  3. I so agree, but you put it in words so beautifully. I have always had that love for nature and tried hard to be positive. Good will prevail because there are good people like you Michelle.

  4. Mitch-This is one of your most amazing works! Very well done and to think we are all walking by this everyday and barely notice. I loved this and the photos are amazing. Your lens speaks volumes.

  5. Your narrative is just as powerful as the images! Have you considered small inspirational books? Gifts. I did 2 children’s books for Hayes.

  6. May the force of nature guide us and remind of us of all the beauty that exists, beautiful!

  7. Beautiful pics!!! Spring can be awesome. However, it is a “government controlled (not virus controlled) economy,” and Good may prevail over Evil, but I believe it is going to have an extremely hard time prevailing over stupidity!
