‘Picture this’ photo contest: ‘Genius loci’ edition


OK. Time to commit. I wish that I had a whole season for this month's 'Picture This' photo contest assignment. But going through the comments the prelim post where I ran through more than a dozen contenders from earlier seasons, I'm going to rely on the advice I got from Laurie:

"[Go with] the last one. You captured it with your comment 'the gradation from human to wild'. It tells the story of your place in one shot: how it’s a safe created harbor where human stuff happens (picnicking, potting, sitting,) but it is only just barely contained inside a little fortress of tall flowering ramparts… then the outside untamed world takes over. I am sensing a first prize again."

And yes, I am very much aware of Julie Moir Messervy's harbor archetype.

I’m so glad you picked that one (for all the reasons I noted initially). And thanks for the reference. I’ll be eager to check the winner when it’s announced!

Good luck, I think you made a great choice. I have been fascinated by the theme this month for ‘genius loci’.

It looks like beauty enveloped with beauty.
