Different Seasons – Hope Springs Eternal

I can’t say that Stephen King is my favourite author. He isn’t. But Stephen’s got something that I wish I was able to do with my photographs – he manages to highlight the extraordinary in the most common of the situations. Different Seasons is a collection of four short novellas (3 of them became major films – Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil, The Breathing Method (no film yet on this one) and The Body, which became the film Stand by Me). I read these stories every now and then – usually matching the season they belong to. It’s time to re-read the Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. This photo essay is about that.

Hope does spring the eternal. My small corner is not far from the garden and I spend a good amount of time over here, gazing outside every now and then. Sitting over here allows to feel the passing of time in a very different way. I get to see the leaves falling, the trees withering, the anedoctal snow covering the ground, the first blossoms and then the life again in all its colour and sound.

This series is inspired by Different Seasons. It celebrates the passing of time. And the realisation we should be looking after this world of ours a bit better, but that’s something for another post.

Enjoy the pictures.
