The gnarly cherry trees in sight of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, as captured by photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo. We couple this scene with a spring Haiku written by Basho during the 17th century.
Baby mice in their nest
squeak in response
to the young sparrows
The greens and blues of spring excite us with expectation! We thank our dear friend, photojournalist Maureen Spagnolo, for another lovely photo for our cover. We also welcome her to the Significato Journal as she begins her own column called, PhotoVoyance. More about that in our next newsletter!
Our dear friend Maureen Spagnolo, a photojournalist from Washington DC, has caught Deep Creek Lake in its many moods. We've paired it with a stanza from a Sara Teasdale poem.
"The leaves fall patiently
Nothing remembers or grieves
The river takes to the sea
The yellow drift of leaves."
- Sara Teasdale
Photojournalist, Maureen Spagnolo, caught this gorgeous portrait of autumn at Deep Creek Lake in Maryland. These lines from the poem, "Autumn", by Alexandr Pushkin, came to mind:
I love (the days of autumn) -
their unassuming light, their quiet beauty.
Autumn attracts me like a neglected girl
among her sisters. And, to be quite honest,
she is the only one that warms my heart.
This gorgeous black and white shot was taken by photographer/filmmaker Caleb Austin, from Bruington, VA. He says, "While driving through the Shenandoah valley I noticed this freshly cut hay field. The hay was laid out in windrows which made for a great photograph, with the lines of grass leading up to some magnificent clouds."
Any way you look at it, this line from the Psalms of David is incredibly poetic and seems to fit this image of countryside in New Zealand. Oh, to just lie down there and be! Wow! Taken by photojournalist, Grace Brown, author of The Continuous Wander blog.
"This small lady bug was crawling up a stalk of grass when I noticed it in my backyard. I liked how the bright red bug popped out against the green grass. I used a macro lens to get right up close." This photo was taken by the just-graduated artist / musician / filmmaker, Caleb Austin. The polished, bright red lady bug seems to be driving on the grass, enjoying the pleasure of the moment. Or maybe she's looking for breakfast. Whatever she's doing (or he?), we can feel the warmth of the summer day.
