Photos for a cure

20 Jul

As a writer, I sometimes convince myself that since I’m a creative type, I should delve into different forms of art besides words. There was a disastrous attempt in grade 8 to create with pastels that resulted in about 50 crappy pictures of the same tree (the only thing, it turns out, that I can draw). A few years ago it was  abstract paintings. Since I purchased my iPhone, I have taken aproximately 1200 pictures, most of them of my animals. Sometimes I fancy myself a brilliant photographer. That is, until I come across photos from a true photographer like Jody Bernard.

I love Jody’s photography. I think the best way to describe it is simple yet beautiful. Jody has recently started a Facebook group to sell her pictures. But here’s the thing: she’s giving away all the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research.

Like most of us, Jody’s life has been touched by cancer. Both a high school friend and Jody’s Mom have been diagnosed with cancer.

She has dozens of amazing prints to choose from. So amazing, in fact, that I’m having a hard time deciding which ones I want to buy. I think that these four are the ones I’m going to get, but I’m not sure. What do you think? Pop over to Jody’s Facebook group and let me know which one you like.

I have no idea what this is, but I like it. I'd probably call it "Zombie Winter".

I love how the ice is preserving the beautiful of the dead buds.

The blurred branches behind really bring out the color of the berries.

I'm not religious at all, but I dig the angle of the picture and the darkening sky. I can imagine that 5 seconds after the picture was taken, the skies opened with lightening and rain.
