I Understand, Just Can't Stop

If my postings of the sites from the Northern and 
Southern kitty-corners of WA start to bore you at this point, 
well, I understand, just can't stop. 
This is the time of year for oohing and aaahing. 

Letting summer sights imprint to retrieve in deepest winter

Appreciating deeply established roots

Finding the patterns that mingle

And following the light along it's chosen path

I understand. I have thought people may have grown weary of my apples and grapes, but when Life speaks to you, you listen...and record what you can. These photos are made for oohing and aaahing. Yes, it is that time of year. They are simply beautiful. I feel a deep kinship with you, your photos, your poetry.

Beautiful photographs.

Exactly Teresa.
So true, when life speaks we must listen. The precious moments slip by so quickly. I'm so glad you enjoyed the images, as I too continue to enjoy your garden. No such thing as too many apples and grapes. That kinship goes two ways.
Hugs,
Chris

Jack,
I'm catching up! Have gotten to read most of the posts I'd missed over at Sage to Meadow. Not quite through them all. My heart held in place for a time last night as I read of Shiney and your runs with him. And like others who have followed your journey of love and commitment, it was hard to read of his sale. That last run you made made with him was palpable. You gave him a fine, fine start.
So glad you enjoyed the images.
Hugs,
Chris

Chris: Thank you for your comments about giving him a fine, fine start. I miss him so much, but it was necessary for him to have a bigger role as a horse with someone that loved him immediately and has the money to move him up in the ranks. I do so much enjoy your photos. For me they evoke solace and peace among many things. You must have a peaceful home. (Jack Matthews, Sage to Meadow)

Jack,
What a wonderful thing to find the buyer that felt right for Shiney. I can image if he had ended up in a bidding battle between folks not of your choice, the aftermath could be very different.

How lovely that the photos evoke solace and peace for you. I find these locations did the same thing for me. Being able to revisit moments, thanks to the camera, is a treat for which I have much gratitude. Amid the chaos, a place for the heart and eyes to return and rest.

About our home, it is peaceful. Once here at workdays end, we rarely leave. I'm sure many think we are as boring as all get out. It will be a little less peaceful the next couple of weeks as we try and accomplish some big chores. Having a roof over ones head these days is a gift we don't take lightly.

Not boring. It's like Brenda and me here at the ranch, hotter than the dickens, but we have time off for two more weeks and we are at ease. People might find it boring, but you and I know it's not.

I like the comment you made that with the camera, you can revisit the moment, the place. Susan Sontag wrote a piece on photography that says a lot. I'll try and find it.

Later, Jack.

So true Jack, not boring at all. Glad to know the time off is happening while the heat is so high. Allows for the right pace for those temps.

And practically speaking, when it is really hot here and someone can be home, just being able to keep air moving in this old renovated day cabin of ours makes a huge difference. Small space, big heat holder and very slow to cool down.

I can think of so many moments I wish I had an image or two of...for days when memories aren't as vivid.

Beautiful! You have such a great eye and always seem to capture the mood of a place. When are you going to start selling your photos?

Sea Mist and Sunsets said...

Thanks BG, that means alot to me. Life with digital comes with a little more certainty. Every so often I am reminded of some important thing we were trying to catch on film at the paper, only to find out when we returned that no film had been loaded. Or the film didn't catch on the receiving spool. Eeeraaakkkk. Bless digital for it's simplicity and lightness!

On selling photos, I'm still mulling that over.
Hugs,
Chris
