As I write this we are on the road, enjoying a family vacation. I miss writing everyday but I must admit I was feeling rather depleted before we left for our trip. The words were flowing but then there was no more thought or creative energy for photography or poetry once they were on the page. I was running on empty.
It has taken a full week to feel a bit more like myself. I woke up this morning as the sun was peaking over the roof of my parents neighbor’s home, I didn’t say good morning to anyone. I grabbed my camera and walked outside to the sun drenched leaves, flowers and palm fronds to get lost in the details. That sure felt good.
I captured this image a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t get over how much it reminded me of looking through a high-powered microscope. The stamens look like they could come to life and fly away. I was at our local marsh, taking a much-needed morning walk alone. This is the wild California Rose.
Our trip continues for at least another week. I can’t get over how wonderful it feels to spend quality, uninterrupted time with my family. You’ll here from me on my return.
