COLOR STUDIES: THE FIRST SPRING GREEN

spring peas

There is something so refreshing about the color green. Thinking about this color throughout the week, and going to the markets looking for spring greens – not winter kales and collards or anything in that wintry family, mind you, but these delicate first greens of spring, was a calming, almost meditative, affair. Happy spring, friends.

    This looks like our garden right now – growing sugar snap peas, onions, kale, spinach, lettuce – it’s all green! :)ReplyCancel

    Can I ask about your photographing techniques? i just saw your kitchen tour on theKitchn and you mentioned having north facing windows and a lack of lilght. All of your photos are so bright and airy…how do you achieve this? i am forced with a kitchen that has no walls with windows…it’s in the middle of the house and I am always struggling with the lighting!ReplyCancel
