hallerbos (up close)

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

(hallerbos, belgië)

I do have a dark side.

I don’t have a macro lens or a set of extension tubes.

It turns out I also have a lighter, brighter side which I though I would share today as part of Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab.

None of these images have been edited, each are as shot. All were captured this afternoon, during a picnic in the woods with my son.

Part of an experiment to explore my lighter side.

*all shot with nikon d700 and nikkor 70-200 f/4 lens, no edits*

  1. Andy, I’m honored by your entry to the Photo Rehab.
    Firstly because it’s you. As you’re. Complete, showing your duality.
    No editing. No mask. No hiding.
    The words are heartfelt and the photos are the best not only because your photos are the best, and these are no exception, but also because nature is the best theme to perhaps remind you that there is darkness and lightness, in every one of us.
    Thank you my friend.

I would love to know what you think?
