It really was just another day on the road. We stopped, and I got this feeling that we were being watched. You cannot see in this picture, but in the darkness of the woodlands, was a deer checking us out…. well ok, I can’t say for sure it was a deer, but it had four legs, and piercing eyes.
I tried for another look, at that time I was using a digital Minolta, I confess that I am not a stealthy hunter when I cross over brush and fallen logs to get a closer look. At the time, I didn’t know about phone cameras where I could see what I was stalking. It is in clearing an area on a shelf for a new acquisition ( an airplane clock) that I found the delinquent disk, with pictures from “another time”- labelled Bancroft.
From the pictures of the interior of the darkened woodland, I see I was determined .. and was not going to just walk away. I’m happy to say that this stubborn streak is still with me, much to the chagrin of others. Now looking back many years later, what I have to show for this adventure of mine, is pictures of a forest woodland that held on to its mystery and mystic, why share the pictures, it’s a case of you had to be there… really there to appreciate the moment. =^_^=

I have no idea what this last picture is all about, but decided to include it since there is so much black in the other pictures. As a photographer, you have to accept that some of your artist captures, are not always, A1, but for sure, they all capture that moment in time, when you thought Ah Ha….
some one, or some thing
watched in the shadow of the trees
drawn to the feeling of being watched
I let myself be captured by the slight movement of the leaves
as always when totally caught up in the moment
my heart did a little dance
my sense of awareness went into over drive
would we connect
would my lens find its mark
no matter, I had to pursue my need
to capture what I couldn’t really see
this adrenalin is pure, it comes from within
the artist in me is alert
for in a nano second, I’ll press connect
to the instrument in my hands
the moment passes, the thrill happened
will the climax be complete
when I look at the
picture on the screen
no matter what
I lived the moment
and the picture
that I will see
a forever reminder
that in that second
I was part of life
in that space and time
Do you believe that you are always connected to the Universe, and that, there are times, you are drawn to produce, or create something, because it just feels right..? I believe that we are all artists in our own way, sometimes, what we do, is clear, the picture, a “master piece” It conveys something to the artist and the viewers alike. Other times, it is a reflection of a moment that came and went. No more, no less.
