Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen, also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885 and published between 1883 and 1891.[1] Much of the work deals with ideas such as the ‘eternal recurrence of the same’…”


We did have spring for a few days, but winter has returned.

So, here we are… inside again, back in front of our bay window.

Occasionally, a burst of sunlight overcomes the darkness for a while.

Patience, patience.

  1. A wistful…..maybe wishful…image.

    Get to the stairway window/collecting lens. Great things happen there photographically speaking even if the outside is forbidding or discouraging. April is the cruelest month (T.S. Eliot) but it always yields. Eventually.

  2. Why the grandiose and melodramatic statements. Learn to use strobes if the light is as bad as you perceive it to be. Your photography doesn’t appear to depend on the lighting anyway so don’t make a big deal of it! Relax!
