The big blue truck cruises down old Route 19 as I enjoy the fresh air. Windows down and my favorite music on a quiet road is the best way for me to find inspiration in early Fall. Across from the old general store that has sadly closed is a small lot that is ablaze with asters and Goldenrod. Fall is the season of color and every little patch of clear earth is alive with the Fall flowers. The native bees and butterflies gather for a feast and to carry away bee bread for their precious broods.
The Fall breeze challenges my focus as I explore this tiny kingdom with my lens. In my imaginations I can even hear a giggle of mischief as wind moves flowers out of frame and changes the depth of focus. Nature loves these kinds of games but eventually settles a bit to reward my struggling patience. She sends the little bumblebee to just the right spot and whispers “Now” as the shutter snaps and the image is captured. We play the game over and over throughout the afternoon. Butterflies dance with the flowers in the breeze and play games of their own when the wind changes their landing zones. The game will last forever in my mind but sooner or later the asters will need their turn as they cast their seeds into the air where wind will plant them in just the right place at just the right time for them to sleep beneath the frost. As tomorrows change into yesterdays the time for such games will come again and with God’s grace I’ll be there to witness it again.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
