Oh, Solitude


One of the things I enjoy about being an artist is the solitude. I am content spending hours in my studio without talking to a soul, getting lost in my work. I am blessed to have a family, so there are times when I am also social, although I feel the pull of the solitude at the end of a long day.

So when I started using my camera, I thought, oh, this is just a different kind of art. Of course I am on a grand learning curve, and it makes me giddy with delight. I digress.

The feel is so different, I'm alone, but not, the outside is like a companion that walks with you. I took these photos at Hopkins Glen, one of the prettiest places I know close to my home. I can't wait to go back. Peace.

Mountain laurel? I just noticed it blooming on a neighbors yard- so pretty.
The camera can be like a companion: my mind to your mind sort of thing. I always seem to have a dialog with it.. move up, over, down, close up...
