start where you are. use what you have. do what you can. ~arthur ashe
The wind was hellaciously fierce in Kansas today. I didn’t realize that when we set out for some park time, so by the time I got there it was too late for turning around. You just don’t do that with a 6 year old who is hardcore about playground time.
I haven’t really been feeling the photography vibe lately. It happens this time of the year when I feel like all humans should evolve into mammals that hibernate. But I took my camera anyway. And the way that crazy wind blew all the dead leaves from fall across the expanse of the park was somewhat magical. Like little travelling people, making their way in a rhythmic wave across the dead grass.
So I sat down in a good place and waited. I knew I had to capture that grandeur somehow.
But I like these better. The simple ones. The ones of a small person just enjoying life. Cold wind and all.
I’ve spent a huge part of my life being who I though others would be more happy with. That never works.
The best things happen when I take what I have, wait for the right time and turn it into something beautiful. It always happens at the most unexpected times.
