“Evening Storm” – © chriscondello 2013 – Conceptual Composition – My Backyard – Wilkinsburg, PA – Call this what you will… But to me… This photograph is like a painting… Blue Salvia as my canvas… And Golden Heuchera my medium… Taken in the evening light accompanying a storm… Electricity in the air puts electricity in the soul… This photo was taken on the walk to the community garden…

“Go Team” – © chriscondello 2013 – Clover – Hamnett Place Community Garden – Wilkinsburg, PA – Compared to the other clover in the immediate area… This one was huge… The sun can kinda be seen setting in the trees… And the storm was rumbling at my back…

“Berries Galore” – © chriscondello 2013 – Strawberry – Hamnett Place Community Garden – I know from the past that this variety of strawberry tastes amazing… Had I known it had an incredible flower as well… I guess as the breeders get bored with developing fruit… They mess around with the flowers… I was blown away by the simplicity… But stunned by the complexity… Truly beautiful…

“Blue Flag” – © chriscondello 2013 – Iris Versicolor – Hamnett Place Community Garden – Wilkinsburg, PA – The sun setting behind this Iris was practically visible through the petals… I did my best to capture the feeling of that moment in this photograph…

Hyacinth Breeze

BeautyAndBeast

“Beauty and the Beast” – © chriscondello 2013 – A lone daffodil against a house in ruins…

Off in the distance I hear the rumble…
From cloud to cloud it rolls and tumbles…
Till it slowly rolls off and into my ears…
A sound I’ve anticipated for 32 years…

Hyacinth breeze and the smell of rain…
Leading right up to the storm…
Writing rhymes to the sound of wind chimes…
A memory frozen in time…

Clouds roll in and the sky gets dark…
Illuminating discharge electrical arc…
God apparently has something to say…
Showing off with her frightening display…

Today I will rejoice in the cold rain…
Immerse in it from cloud to drain…
Ashes to ashes… Dust to dust…
Wash away my emotional rust…

peace – chriscondello
