Some of my favorite photos have been found unexpectedly, when I’ve chanced upon a natural circumstance and happened to have my camera. So it was with this misty October morning walk to the grocery store.
I dropped my car off for inspection at a station just blocks from my house and took a walk from there to the grocery store on that dark and foggy morning. The sun rose and the fog lifted as I walked through small town alleys and back streets, along railroad tracks and a small industrial area, taking photos all the way. What a wonder of variety to be seen shrouded in mist and dripping with rain and glowing in the dim and sparkling with a million tiny droplets—spiderwebs encrusted with diamonds festooned the bridge over the creek, each spike from each seed in a seedhead of grass tipped with a glowing light, rosebuds and zinnias flashing pink and coral in the dim, train tracks disappearing, and more. I changed some photos to grayscale and left some in color, otherwise I have no filters on anything, it’s all just the amazing world that’s everywhere.
It was photo experiences like this one that encouraged me to host my poetry reading with art and photos, “Walking Around”, November 2, 2017. I have prints of most of them but only a few are listed in my photo galleries; you can search for the title and see if it’s here, or just send me an email. Below is a gallery in the order I took the photos so you can kind of walk along with me. Enjoy!
