“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
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*

It’s not about me.
It’s about him.
The guy in the photo.
What I should be doing.
My contribution to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post at WordPress.
In Spring these woods host an ethereal carpet of bluebells.
Today, on a warm Autumn afternoon, I chose to lose the colour.
Places to lose oneself for a moment.
I have signed up for the Wordpress Photography 101 course which runs through November.
I will also post a photo a day as part of NaBloPoMo, November 2014. This is a taster.
Gazing up through the trees in Hallerbos.

“Look: the trees exist; the houses we dwell in stand there stalwartly.
Only we pass by it all, like a rush of air.
And everything conspires to keep quiet about us, half out of shame perhaps, half out of some secret hope.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
― Lewis Carroll
