With new lighting comes new opportunities to create. Trinity Church in the City of Boston has been updating its interior lighting, and with new light have come revelations so to speak as ceiling artwork once hidden in the shadows comes to life once more as originally conceived in 1877. Of course this provides new photographic opportunities like capturing this lovely blue peacock amidst green vines and rose flowers. We’re at work translating this image into merchandise for the shop. So far, we’ve created a latte mug, a decorative pen and … hold your breath … yes, a silk chiffon scarf is waiting in the wings along with a charming hand mirror. Stop by the shop sometime to see these and other items that capture the unique beauty of this National Historic Landmark and active Episcopal church. https://www.trinitychurchboston.org/visit

One thing that was hard to capture was how everything, every grass, branch, dried leaf, was encased in ice and they glowed in the sun, but it was too cold (for me) to stand still and frame the “perfect” shot, and my partner in crime kept telling me “we only have so many reserves of heat.” He had a destination … to the end of a particularly popular viewing area. We made it there but it was the least protected of areas and the wind hit, and we had a moment of “Go team!” before the race/skate back to the car.

And on that race/skate back to the car I saw something wonderful. Finches, cardinals, doves and other birds I can’t name, feeding at the station that had been set up. Under different circumstances, with different preparation, I could have planted my feet and photographed all of their color and variation. But given my numb fingers, I figured enough was enough and I looked forward to future opportunities.
