And again it comes in waves and roughness
in quick and steady
there is no denying
no hiding it just is and so am I
knowing the winds will carry this
too by and by at some point but not today
and as long as I can recognize
the truth that I am not alright
but I am with love and alive
so I will be
I am okay with the view outside
in the brewing life fought storm
Here is my final photograph of this month-long challenge. What a beautiful experience it has been. I am thankful I took the leap and gave myself some extra challenges. Like writing a poem with each photograph and not going into my archives for any of the images except the very first one. I have learned that it feels good to see beyond the normal view, to push myself to tell a story more carefully within my images and that my words are deeper when I do this.
I took this photograph at the same time as the last image I shared, #14. This time I switched my camera to black and white mode and zoomed in a bit to just the cloudy sways. I liked the look of a few branches on one side giving the sky some depth and scale. I know I will continue to experiment.
Here is the final gallery of my images, they are numbered from 1 to 15. Please check HERE at Captivate Me for links to all the final galleries. I would love to hear about one or more of your favorites and if you are curious of the poem that goes with a given photograph I will leave a link to each post here too.
My final Gallery:
Absolutely breathtaking image, Carrie! And your words… So beautiful, every one. You are a wonder, my friend! Sending love!!!
Awe, Britt. This just really moves me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Another beautiful point of view… the skies can be so changeable.. as our circumstances are too I suppose.
Beautiful words again Carrie and hugs to you xxx
I LOVE that you took the challenge to yourself to write, along with experimenting with your camera – such a powerful and emotive combination… Don’t stop.
Thank you for joining me in this month long journey… For me finding the images was only a part this month, but enjoying everyone else’s experiences was a wonderful surprise!
Thank you xx
I so appreciate your continued support and encouragement. Thank you, Robyn. I started looking into making a book, at least for my family and me for the holidays and I’ll see where it goes from there. Looking forward to working with a friend to bring a calendar to life filled with my photographs and snippets of my words. A dream come true in many ways. This was such a breath of fresh air for me. Great idea and thank you for checking in so often! I appreciate the hugs and that you read and understand what I am trying, in my own way, to convey.
