Goodbye, beautiful autumn skies and crunchy leaves!
Goodbye, anything growing and green!
Goodbye lovely dewy spiders' webs!
(and, hello, again! All the spiders have, obviously, moved inside with me where it's warm!)
and, I would say, 'goodbye to autumn mists' but we had the most spectacular 'pea-souper', yesterday!!! I think they'll continue.
After all....it is, technically, still autumn!
This past season, I felt like I was running in a million different directions. I've had too many unfinished projects - I've been going in too many different directions - and it has felt like everything is snatched at and never really completed. I haven't been quite sure how I feel about my photos, either - I'm not focused. I think that many, many of my photos turned out to be a jumble or, at least, my perception of them has been jumbled because that's how my brain has been; so, I put my camera down, this past month, for the first time in fifteen months.
Honestly, it's made me an anxious mess. I'm starting to think that photography must be therapeutic. Well, it's my therapy, anyway. I'm starting to think that I just might even love it more than singing and music and, for me, that's a gasper....
Well, today, I'm resting up after a busy weekend and the completion of quite a few projects and I'm looking at my autumnal images and there are so many that I do like, after all. There was some beautiful, beautiful light... but, now, it's time to move on....move on to winter and Christmas. Part of me just doesn't want to let go.....I still have more to share...
Well, we'll see what happens....
Does anyone else drive their life while looking in the rear view mirror? =] Do any of you ever find that you're not sure about what you've done until a good amount of time has passed? It's almost like I'm too close to the idea, at first, to see it objectively. Then, also, I've noticed with many of my artistic friends that, how we feel about life is so intertwined with how we feel about our images.
What could it all mean.....??? ;)
