As I mentioned on Monday, I am battling a doozy of a cold. I’m on my third day of confinement and first day of being out of bed before 10am ( although I’m writing this at 10:37am and I’m ready to crawl back in ). I’ve been consoling myself with Pinterest and guilty pleasure tv marathons on Hulu. But the bright colors and quirky compositions of the work of San Francisco photographer Kelly Nicolaisen remind me that there is fun and life to be had on the other side of this temporary yuckiness.
Nicolaisen is an art photographer with an incredible eye for color and composition. Each image is carefully balanced yet they still feel like the capturing of a fleeting, ordinary moment.
Just in case we’d forgotten, Nicolaisen’s imagery reminds us of the color, joy and humor to be found in this life. We aren’t meant to live in worlds of taupes and greys. We need and crave the bright spots. Living in the desert has taught me that. For it is in those moments that we remember there is still delight to be found.
