3/23/19: So it’s a wrap now for my 65 of 65 series - one image a day for each of the 65 years I’ve been making photos (actual grand total of 66 when you add in the 1954 starting shot). I hadn’t a clue about what this post for 2019 should be until yesterday when little Ralph & I stepped out for his late afternoon walk. I had just learned of the Mueller report’s release when this item quickly came into view - a bit of serendipity, a bit of news resonation, the only iphone shot in the collection, and a nice addition to my series of dog-walking-inspired underfoot pictures of utility covers http://waltersilver.com/groundcover. Here’s hoping for a little repair work in our world!

Under the quiet cover of snow, a base of serenity provides an opportunity for meditation and visual musings. It’s an over layering of the micro with the macro, landscapes mitigated by a fine mist scrim condensed out of the warm air within our cabin: the breath of deep dreams, the heat of our bodies, the steam from last night’s boiling pasta. Looking out from this still comfort I attempt to reconcile the safe contained feeling of being there with the open possibilities of what lies outside the glass.
