The book and nothing happens in July the heat fails .
Summer in August gives saturated colors a shadow game takes place over the pages of the book ..
First autumn book filled with voices ..
The leaves wither looks yellow, orange and red.
The first snow came quietly .
The bench is empty abandoned after a summer's rain longing for words
and people all will probably be fine in the end?
It is the new year. The snow is here to stay the 6 hour daylight...
The walk a February day...
March repeated four pictures the snow is still her.
After the snow began to melt in April the sun formed water puddles. A regular day when people come and go in and out of the grocery store ..
Last days in April around 12.50 am when the light falls into the studio I take one old handed vase.The layout still life, gives shape shadow and light "Shape and shadows in the studio".
"The end of the story"...
