guinness and green

Guinness and Green
April 2008

My iTunes: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

Well, I guess my attempt at not posting after midnight is failed today... But I've been up late working on papers and research, listening to Harry Potter a bit, and thought that I'd take a break and post this.

This is the last post for Project Green. This is another image from the archives, from when I lived in London. (I'm not a particular fan of beer, but having beer from a tap in London make us some fond memories of mine!)

No, Guinness beer is not green! This cup served as a make-shift vase (which I love!) for some flowers at my friends' house. I think most people tend to look at the flowers themselves and don't pay attention to the vase, and certainly not to the stems. I really liked this view, though -- I thought it had a lot of character. Now looking at the image, I like how the blues and purples of the background bring out the yellow-green of the stems.

Well, I should head to bed now. I have a lot to accomplish tomorrow -- practice piano, mail thank you notes, run to the library, work on finances, research apocalyptic imagery on medieval tympana, write a paper on a reliquary of the True Cross said to once belong to Pope Innocent V, write a paper on Paradise of the Blind by Duong Thu Huong, meet with my professor to lay out plans for the third course of study I'm attempting, stage the second half of the scene from Copland's The Tender Land with my partner, have rehearsal for Opera/Musical Theater Workshop, meet with my group about a medieval art presentation on Tuesday, lead Bible study, and stage the aria portion of Copland's The Tender Land. Whew... I'll definitely be needing tonight's beauty sleep!

One of the things I love about photography is the story that goes with the image. So often, interpretation is left to the viewer. But I want to know what connection the artist has to the work. When I just see a beer glass at first, I come away with so much more after reading what accompanies the image.

I'm glad that you are doing well. I hadn't checked in on you but had thought of you. I've enjoyed your Project Green photos. Nice work. Take care of yourself. That schedule does not sound restful! Keep us posted about the auditions!

Busy, busy girl! You should do what I did yesterday- go to Barnes and Noble, get a nice big coffee and sit for 3 hours doing all the work.
