My Moment of Zen…
Head in the clouds.
Upon receiving my very first 35mm camera (Minolta AL-F), I asked my mom’s friend who was a professional photographer how to start.
“Put your head in the clouds.”, I was told.
I was hooked at the age of 13 years old. I learned how to see the light and adjust for it. I learned about depth of field and exposure.
I went out everywhere with my camera and film. Yes, I said the F word. 30+ years later, my head is still in the clouds.
“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
No truer words were meant for me.
But then again, I talk to my plants, my dogs, the water and the rising sun.
I talk to life.
“It’s a big blue spanish sky,
Lay on my back and watch clouds roll by.”
