I think of photography as music. The way I move around and capture this and that is a dance of sorts. A melody borne of nature and its seasons.
Yesterday after my PT appointment I drove around town. I had my camera with me just in case.
I had no real destination in mind. Just drove around until something caught my eye and then I’d pull to the side of the road.
Poetry Without Words:
What might speak to me are a pile of rocks or layers of land. The way the sun slants across the rippling water.
To me this is poetry without words.
Every morning I make my cup of coffee and sit in this chair to chat with you. To show you what I see in my little corner of the world.
The Beauty Of Nature In Every Season:
I might be struck by tall strands of grass, brown in their wintry coat. Then I stop and lean this way and that and see what treasure I can find beyond it.
I just hope you see something of what I see.
Trees shedding their leaves. The way the trees grow tilted toward each other over time as though reaching toward a friend or lover.
A scattering of leaves on the ground with a bit of green here and there. A blending of the seasons.
That pause in time until the season fully takes hold and the other one quietly slips away.
A Hint Of Normalcy:
I use a zoom lens. And from far away I captured these two older men sitting together on a bench.
In a time when there is such sadness, these men sitting together on a bench in the park represent normalcy.
Maybe they’re old friends, meeting up to take advantage of the warmer day to sit and chat.
Prisms Of Light:
It is as though the water above is throwing up shiny jewels. Tiny prisms of light for the sun to grab onto and hold for a time.
Do you see it?
I very much want you to see what I see.
I am never happier than when I’m outside looking at the world through a tiny lens.
My words would be nothing without my pictures. Together they speak a language I hope you understand.
I want to hand you a little bit of a gift in these trying times. Something that might distract you from the sorrow for just a little while.
A small token of my appreciation that you come here to visit me.
