Into the Sun

The path to your house
Well worn
Tamped down
By rabbit and wolf
Compels the feet
Step lightly
Swiftly

The journey
Stretched long
Like the tanning
Of the rattler
Bites relentlessly
That beautiful poison
Of anticipation

It’s that moment
When eyes meet
The relief
When held tight
To die wonderfully
Of days past


It’s All Energy

This started as an opinion piece.

I changed my mind.

Suffice it to say that I love making photographs.
After years of looking to see every scene as a potential to a larger end (composition-wise), I have to say that there is no end to this for me. If the moon is in the wrong place for a composition, I will move it. If I need a spot of color found in the sunset in front of a tree or mountain, I will move it.

The camera makes light a willing participant who is just as happy to come along for the ride, as I am to bring it. Sometimes light will cooperate. Other times I must argue with it to get my way. Sometimes, many times, light tells me to re-think things for a better outcome.

No failures, just learning, always learning.

Discovery

Oh, I suppose it means to uncover something.
Something that was there you just didn’t know it was there.
There is something pleasant about a black bird.
Black bird won’t let you visit unless you come in close.
Close enough to see feather and catch-light eyes.
Eyes are always looking to assign names.
Names help us to tell everyone.
Everyone! Look what I found!

Multiple exposures, multiple layer composite/manipulation impression.
Inspired by a lovely book I recently read a couple of times.

Across the Lake

These laws these laws
Physics and integrated biology

Our bodies
A mass of intelligent proteins
“I will be an arm” says one
“I will be an eye” says another

These laws, these laws
Physics and integrated biology

Discerning the atmospheres
First, our light airy cosmos
Little is the effect of gravity
‘Til water marries us up – it is inescapable

Why must I be a bonded slave
To the one?
Not to move quietly
Through the other.

We close our eyes
Through imagination’s window
We become fully capable
Traversing these laws
And cross to the other side

What will we “see”?

Originally, I started to write an informative photography tutorial entry, but became too bored with the subject. Maybe another time. Apparently, I am too easily distracted.
