Thursday 15 March 2012: A Walk in the Haze
I worked late last night and awakened this morning to a haze in my eyes and a haze across the fields. I decided to throw on some warm things and head out with the camera prior to feeding everyone - meaning cats and dogs (they were not amused).
I walked down the road listening to the sounds of my footsteps against the fog and haze that had no real form or spots of less density or more. It just lay there across the road, fields and homes like a down comforter that offered no warmth. I crossed route 31 and climbed down the grade to the Scott's side field. I had hoped to find a lingering deer or wild turkey but the quiet showed me that my only companions were robins, red winged blackbirds and morning doves all quietly perched in winter trees.
This was not what I wanted to shoot today. To be honest I am not sure exactly what that want or need is right now. I have been longing for a change and have not figured out what that is. I have been pondering sending my camera in to have it professionally cleaned as it needs it - but I just have the one camera body and no side kick camera or cell phone with a camera so if I send my camera in I won't be Blipping until it returns.
Thinking that might be a good thing noting the way I have been feeling - stuck and repeating myself and not sure which way to point the lens to get that mojo back. I will keep pondering until I decide to get off the fence. I'm sure it is the aftermath of illness I am feeling and the sometimes overwhelming path of recovery that meanders through the grounds of work, home, taking care of so many animals and the need to get cracking on the books I am writing.
No decisions today. Just going to keep floating around in the mist and fog for now I think.
Photo a wee bit overcooked to help balance the raw feeling inside today I think. Sometimes I like overcooking - just not asparagus done that way!
