Social media’s full of differing ones these days. Perhaps the lens of time will show the right course of action.
Experiences shape our opinions and with every new one, there’s a chance for growth. I’m going to keep an open mind…
After all, I used to think everything had to happen ‘in-camera’ but photography isn’t a stagnant art form. What’s important is transparency and taking each image to the point where it evokes what you feel.
I’m glad I have an extensive archive of photographs to revisit. I’m always able to find one that hits the mood for the day. A lone strip of land, isolated objects, and in the distance fog–the new normal.
The shingle urchin, or kaupali as it’s called in Hawaii, is able to resist being washed away by having superior adhesion, and a unique body shape.
We are in unprecedented times. Everything we take for granted has undergone some form of change, and each of us feels its effect differently. With spring in the air, it’s challenging to be limited in the things we can do. Things we’re used to doing like camping, attending concerts, and having social gatherings like weddings.
We can be resistant to the new normal, or we can err on the side of humanity.
Stay creative, stay positive, and most of all, stay safe.
only go out for medical care, food, and essential work
Great time to photograph what your world is like from home. I photographed this pair through my window as they strolled down the sidewalk, pausing to eat worms and to check out each yard. Stay home, stay safe, and stay creative…
I had no idea what a porcupine’s face looked like until I spotted this guy, up a tree, snacking on some bark. Largely nocturnal, and most often solitary, it was a rare find for me. Normal times for wildlife, unusual times for us. Maybe we can learn from this. Stay safe…
avoiding large gatherings and maintaining a distance of 6 feet from other people
Time to think about each person your actions could affect. We’re being bombarded by information and staggering numbers of deaths and infections–worldwide. I believe that we will all lose someone dear to us. We still have many ways of communicating available to us.
Let’s use those methods. Call your family and friends. Check in with them by phone and see if they need anything that you can safely provide. We will need everyone possible in the health care industry healthy so that they can provide care. Let’s not risk their health by not taking the steps outlined for social distancing. They are among the most valued going forward.
There isn’t much that we can do. But we can do that one small thing.
Wouldn’t you rather have done too much than not enough? Be kind, be patient, remember to breathe. We CAN do this.
a bright spot, sometimes called a sundog, in the sky appearing on one or both sides of the sun, formed by refraction of sunlight through ice crystals
Sometimes when you hear news, whether it’s expected or a bolt from the blue, it’s tempting to look for a sign. Some kind of a message that gives hope that all is not black and white. That there are things we just don’t know yet. On that morning after, I chose to find a message high in the atmosphere. No accompanying halos, one lone sundog. Bright and beautiful, just as she was.
