Spring Cometh, Trash and All
It's been so long since posted! Partly because of an illustration assignment (more to come on that), and partly because of the flu!
Today I photographed a sight that captures the schizophrenic nature of spring in Minnesota. The gray clouds that smothered us for months disappeared and a blazing turquoise sky shone through, complete with Canadian geese returning, to reveal a non-postcard sight: the absolute last heap of snow. Black, icky dirty snow, and all of winter's hidden treasures of pop cans, candy bar wrappers, condoms, combs and fast food wrappers. I loved seeing that dirty heap of snow - because it is the last remnants of winter...yayyyyy!
