i listen with my eyes


"The universe is a temple; and those people who are alive to it can not lift their eyes without feeling themselves encompassed with it on every side.” 

-William Ellery Channing

i am feeling in tune these days with all that surrounds me.  i feel it in my images.  simple weeds, blades, pine needles all seem to be speaking loudly to me.  perhaps because winter is fast approaching and the colors will be gone.  i will be surrounded by monochromatic palette, a still will be in the woods.  so for now while they speak, i listen.

I am amazed at how taking a camera with me everywhere has opened by eyes to hear nature calling out to me as soon as I step out my door. It has enriched my life and inspired me like nothing else. I love your photographs and your wise words.
