These flowers are more than just pretty. They tell a story of life, death and friendship.

 

For a while in Madrid, I used to walk by a florist shop on my way home several times a week. I would buy myself bouquets of carnations (one of my favorite flowers) on a regular basis. It always felt like such an indulgent and joyful treat.

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations."

 

Pop! I love the gorgeous color in these images. The Depression may not have been a pretty time, but to my 21st-century eyes, these photographs resonate with a wistful beauty.

Perspective is everything. And that is especially true when considering these amazing photographs by Ondrej Pakan.

 

"I get soaked waiting for the rain to finish, but it all seems worth it when you get really great shots of the insects with drops on them."

 

Normally, I am NOT a big fan of bugs, but there are absolutely gorgeous!

"A self-taught photographer, he began taking photographs in 1893 and soon developed a style that showed the influence of Whistler, Sargent and Japanese prints."

 

There is something so evocative about black and white photography. The distance that old b&w photos provide, both in technology and time, only serves to augment this feeling in me. I pore over them, looking for clues to another age.
