What a difference a day can make…

 

I’ve long been drawn to view of the Longfellow Bridge from the lower basin.

The bridge’s mercury vapor lights cast a green glow on the easterly side.

A surprisingly wild riot of colors, with additional violets, blues and yellows.

What a difference a day can make…

 

Daytime with a overcast sun; it feels like nighttime, with a lunar sun.

A fresh snow fell overnight, covering the familiar boats.

And soft grey reflections of the city are moving in the liquid river.

And the boats are still and familiar, resting on their dock.

Familiar summer boats lie idle, but bring a note of color to the day.

What a difference a day can make…

This body of work was made along the Cambridge side of the Charles River over a period of fourteen days in January 2014. This is an outgrowth of my previous work along this same stretch of the River, exploring variations in light, color texture and mood. As in the previous project, it is inspired by Hokusai’s series of woodblock prints, 36 Views of Mount Fuji.
14 Days In January, 2014 - Charles River, Cambridge, MA, USA

 

What a difference a day can make…

 

Water; a deep inky blue, very still, reflecting an overcast night sky.

Ripples of water in the melting ice due to rapidly varying temperatures.

It's still quite a cold night, but quiet, deeply moody and calm.

14 Days In January, 2014 - Charles River, Cambridge, MA, USA

 

What a difference a day can make…

 

Ice with a cool blue reflective sheen, cracking from freezing and re-freezing.

An ice-cold day, but so surprisingly different from my last visit.

So peaceful and such a dramatic change; what might tomorrow bring?

What a difference a day can make…

 

The muted yellow color of the ice and snow was decidedly unusual.

So odd, in fact, that the river felt eerie and other-worldly.

The color and mood was utterly mesmerizing.

To start, here are my “front and back covers” for the work; two photographs made at the beginning and end of this project. I will be filling in the collection with small galleries representing the remarkable changes in the river over such a short period of time.

 

You will be able to find the galleries at http://www.flashdashbulb.com/f909901858
