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

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.

It’s not about me.

It’s about him.

The guy in the photo.

He’s doing.

What I should be doing.

“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
