Bits and pieces.

These are some of the things I see while weaving my way around my yard.
The crispness of the air.
The crunch of leftover leaves underneath my feet.
Bare white trunks.

Dried up decorative grasses.

And this is what I do.
I notice.
I focus and then I pay attention.

"Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it."
- Mary Oliver

My camera is my method of telling :)

the light

This is the first post in nearly two months. I struggle with finding time to share here. Posts come in spurts and waves and have everything to do with time. I was talking to Norbert last night about how even though we are  incredibly busy we need to make time for the things that really satisfy us, individually. For me, at the top of that list, is photography. Moments with my camera, and my ability to share them, are incredibly satisfying and inspiring. As time passes, photography has increasingly become a powerful method for paying attention to my environment. A way to focus. Stop. And take it all in.

I took a walk today near my house and even though it was bitterly cold, the sun was out in full force. I had set out to go for a walk, to shake the fog that had settled in my head, but then 20 minutes in I head back to grab my camera. The golden hour was setting in, lighting up what leaves were left to a deep saffron yellow, contrasting with the surrounding fresh layer of snow. It was such a refreshing walk that did more than lift the lit a spark.


I forget sometimes that the world is not all on Facebook :)
