The Magic of a Mountain...retreat
Flashes of time from our recent camping trip.
It's more than just camping.
I had been trying to write a Happiness poem
and unsuccessfully attempting to make Life rhyme
since childhood . . yet had not completed
even the beginning stanza
maybe if I should fly . . . once more
to Colorado, I might try . . oh, not to write it now
but to forget, somehow, the reasons why it could never be
~Linda Goodman, from her book "Gooberz"
Still playing with the many features of my new Canon and shifting between manual and program functions; I was going for a rugged, outdoor feel with these images. Seems I may have hit it. Now I wish I had changed the settings to capture a sharper, cleaner image. ::::sigh::::
I'm not overly happy with the quality of this photo--too grainy--but the subtle tilt of his head keeps drawing my soul back to this photo...and the memory of the moment I choose to capture this particular second of life.
