Time Lapse – Wallow or Anticipate?

Time Lapse Aug          Time Lapse Jan

I started a time lapse project a year ago in which I took a photo of this flower bed each day and I really didn’t miss many days except for travel or a rare memory lapse.  It was a lot of fun to see the slow change of this patch of land outside my front door.  But I must admit, my enthusiasm has fizzled and I won’t quite make a year.  This is why:  not much changes anymore except that the snow has now covered all the landmarks you see above.  It can be quite depressing.  This has been one of the most brutal winters I can remember.  It has not just been all the snow, but the cold has been exceptionally bad too – very cold temperatures that last for weeks!

So, it is February and there are glimmers of hope like a bit more light, birds singing in the mornings that aren’t below zero (there are a few), and 30s predicted for the end of the week.  I’ve decided to anticipate.  I will plant seeds!  Basil and kale can definitely be started now.  It will be a breath of fresh air.

Ligularia Time Jumps

Photos - Ligularia 3It’s fun to work on time-lapse projects.  I have 2 going right now.  I have a flower bed I have been taking 1 photo of almost every day since February and I want to try to do that for the whole year.

This one is a mini project.  This Ligularia plant has thrust up these 5 foot tall flower stalks right outside my front door.  They make the most interesting subjects for a few days’ time-lapse work.

I’m doing it backwards here so there is a new picture at the top for everyone to see.

This is my God’s humor photo from yesterday and it is the first in this series.

What do you think?  Isn’t summer the most photographically glorious season?  Every day I find new delights in the garden.
