ew work. It’s been a little while. I took myself for a walk. I went to a little park that has benches, sat down and took some time for myself.
The bench that I sat was our favorite bench. It belonged to the all seeing dog, Sophie Rose. I don’t know what it did for my recovery process, but I started seeing the little things.
So, I made these pictures and a few more. Then, I went to the doctor. No worries, it was just a wellness check. I passed with semi-flying colors.
When I returned, I made more pictures. Just because. Because I believe in a little routine and doing something photographic every single day. That’s how you get better. That’s how you get good.
I haven’t been doing that lately. It shows.
I’ve been reading about photography as a healing an recovery tool. If for no other reason those of you who are photographers should make pictures, or do something photographic every day.
here is really nothing to these pictures. They are simple. They are about trees. They are about nature. They are about rebirth.
Rebirth is important to me right now.
There is a little post production going on in both pictures that are very different processes.
The top image is light, sunny and playful. The bottom image is darker, more moody.
Of course nature helped a lot. Light comes and goes and comes back again especially in the summer.
Nature helped my creative process.
