Yesterday walking through the woods, I thought I always carry my camera eager to capture every beautiful thing that I see because I know how short lived these things are and by photographing them I get to keep them for later when I am no longer here in the location where I found these things or when someone has bulldozed over these precious lands and developed the property into a development.
Then I thought I should limit myself to just three shots, and become much more careful about what I capture. I am gone hogwild with digital imagery. How easy it is to manipulate; I am cropping and enlarging all the time. I need to be more discriminating, or more patient. I am such a restless person, pacing back and forth, walking here and there, swimming up and down, instead of just sitting waiting for something to come to me. I am yearning to go out and find it.
