I notice the difference in my energy on gray days. And there's no doubt that sunshine is uplifting. Over the past two weeks, I've been tying to convey in photographs the mood of our gray days. At first, I wanted to express the bleakness. But then, driving past the ocean in Carpinteria, I noticed a certain grace in the small, glassy waves, and also a rare depth in the jade color of the water.
I lightened the photo of the children, as the dark sky made the detail difficult to see.
