Time for a challenge.  Whenever we get too comfortable in life we are no longer growing – and I feel the need to push my photography skills forward – or maybe just to make more images in order to keep my eyes and perspective open.  The guidelines of this self imposed journey are:  one photo a week; no explanations or stories needed; black and white; shot only with my Nikon D800 and 28mm lens.

…the land is always out there

“Don’t forget that the land is always out there, making its way, doing everything it can so you can breathe fresh air; so you can eat fresh food; so you can move and see and feel and think, and it’s on your side. The world is out there doing what it’s been doing way before you came here, it’s firm and strong and it takes a lot to bring it down.

So from time to time, just go outside and look at this spectacle. This pure painting right in front of your eyes. No one created it. No one owns it. It doesn’t want anything. It doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. It simply is.

So maybe, try a little tenderness. Just give it a chance to do what it can do. Just let it help you 
breathe
and eat
and move
and see
and maybe just try to live your life in a way that doesn’t kill this force of nature
that is just trying to give you a world worth living in. A clean world. A fresh world. 
Paths, forests, oceans, animals, oxygen, water. That’s all it takes.

Just try a little tenderness towards this world we’ve been lucky enough to build our homes on. 
If you take care of it, it will take care of you.”

Winter Stillness

“I prefer winter and fall, when you can feel the bone structure in the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”   [Andrew Wyeth]

Nature at rest.

Sisters

Had a wonderful time photographing these beautiful sisters recently. They were fun and playful and our hour together flew by.  Mom realized that her chances of getting them together were getting slimmer as one is in college and another a senior in high school. Along with doing a senior photo and some shots of the girls together and individually we also did a few family photos that included mom – which she said hasn’t happened in many years.  It’s so important to exist in photos for your friends and family and I’m so glad I got to capture a few moments for them.

Forest in Montana

In Art, landscape, Photography, Uncategorized on October 18, 2016 at 7:16 PM

I got “lost” several times while exploring back roads in Montana.  As lost as an adventurer without a map or a plan can be.  I’ve always been attracted to moody landscapes and love the mystery of a foggy morning more than a perfectly bright and cheery one. This particular day brought me to a ghostly forest – there was a dance going on between all the trees that had been lost in a fire, the lucky ones that survived it and the new life trying to emerge.

Ghostly forest in Montana – 2010.  Double exposure.

Doesn’t life feel that way at times? We wrestle with ghosts from our past, even when we think we’ve moved on from them. Some hold on and try to choke out the new life we are trying to forge – casting shadows where there could be light.  Yet some how a new seed takes hold, grows some roots and flourishes despite the challenges.  There is always hope and nature mirrors that for us repeatedly.
