Living in Northern California for almost 25 years I was not aware of harsh climate of beautiful Lake County until recently. It is an amazing place with stunning landscapes, very hot summers and quite cold winters. Not many regular California plants could survive and prosper there. There is only a couple of native trees proven to be right for the place, and the grasses are very strong and adoptive. To continue the genome process in these extreme circumstances, nature has developed it’s special way to do so by clearing the strong vessels to save the seeds of the future generations and hold them till the conditions are right to spread them around. These vessels – cones, pods, acorns – have an extremely powerful presence and contain an immense beauty, which drawn me to start this “SEEDS” series and celebrate the beauty of the nature.

Yelena Zhavoronkova –Dead End

Some places are hard to visit or even drive by. For different reasons. Over the years I collected quite a number of these spots in the city of San Francisco, where I live for almost 20 years now. To break the pattern, to remove the spell which is giving me the heart ache every t...
