Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Just like a lover I’m there

As I set out on my usual morning jaunt yesterday I was thinking about how we all change ever so slowly and come to except things because of repeated exposure. Just like wild animals become habituated to humans, we too become desensitised to life. Think about it. There are things that in the past you would never have excepted but because of circumstances and repeated exposure things change and you just except it.

It’s not always easy to live life with open eyes and a  fresh vision but it’s important if you are to stay true to yourself. I love my walks with camera in hand, eyes fresh, mind quieted, and ears open. I guess you could say nature is my perfect muse. I fall under her spell and just travel from place to place seeing, really seeing the world without judgement or a plan-I love that.

The story:
Softly she whispers,
as a sliver of light peeks through the trees, I’m there.
Blue so vivid that it hurts my eyes,
fills the space overhead, I’m there
She tickles my legs with a sway in the breeze, I’m there
A deep breath fills my chest,
as a sigh allows residual stress to escape, I’m there
I’m drifting and then falling hard,
under her spell and just like a lover, I’m there

After a magic tweak my okay pic becomes my perfect muse

Where are you?

The Ghosts at Grace Hotel

Here is a little fun in photos for a peaceful Wednesday. I thought I would start you out with a spiritual image I shot in early morning and then move right into the haunted hotel.

I live across town from an old campground where I occasionally go to walk and snap a few pictures. One of the dilapidated buildings on the property leaves me with some very peculiar photographs that I can’t explain. Take a peek and tell me what you think.

This is an untouched photo  from just outside the window of an old hotel taken in the early evening. What ever caused this phenomenon made it an interesting shot.

This is a shot a few feet away from the window. It’s a creepy old building and wasn’t in use at the time.  Walking through this campground is like taking a step back in time. It’s full of old cottages/shacks and there’s lots of breathing room. It’s a great place to walk and absorb a little quiet solitude.

Just an old cottage along the path. Tell me what you think about my mid week muse. Have a peaceful Wednesday.
