Oh what I would give
to close out the distractions around me
to bask in the sunlight in the quiet
stillness warm skin warm thoughts
and marvel at my abilities
to exist just me without the loudness
of the world filling up the surrounding space
weighing down my shoulders
my internal colors muting my voice
and there would be no claustrophobic shoulds and mights
just the sun and me
and maybe a slight breeze
I went for a walk in my backyard two nights ago. I found this lone fern frond spotlit by the lowering sun. I played with my camera settings for a bit to see what I could see differently and I realized if I under exposed the image I could make the background almost solid black. The fern stayed beautifully lit due to how perfectly angled the sunlight was on the fern. So, I began to play with the angle and look of the photograph. It was really fun.
