Simple Pleasures

Spring plants. I'm actually terrible at growing anything, but I'm tempted to try a few little succulents indoors and see how they go ...

Atelier: Stephen Gill

These lovely textural images are from the book Outside In by Stephen Gill, created by taking photographs with (says Stephen), " ... found objects and creatures that I scooped up from the local surroundings and introduced into the body of my camera." The result is a spontaneous collage that's a multilayered portrait of the site he's photographing, showing both what it looks like and how it feels to be there. So intriguing.
