Storm – Beauty and Danger

This one shows the very limited visibility on the roads at times though the storm.  It’s hard enough to navigate the snowy, icy roads when can see what’s in front of you. For me, I find it all so captivating I’d rather pull over and shoot photos than drive anywhere, any day.

The spots on the photo are snow that landed on my lens.  I quite like the effect they created.  Just look at that sun trying to break through!

 

Memories and spring 


We took a family road trip last weekend to the place Dayne and I first fell in love.  Colt had asked to see it; the child has a romantic soul like I’ve never seen in one so young (never mind disabled!). It was a magical day, lovely spring sun and we had a great time remembering and sharing memories with Colt, who was still years from being on this planet, a concept he struggles to understand.  I mean, how can the world exist before you’re even in it?!   It’s a question that’s hard to answer without scaring the shit out of you 12 year old autistic son who has just had his first brush with death (and he didn’t even remember ever meeting his grandfather). 


It was lovely though.  All those memories that chained into a string of more and more until Colt tuned out completely and Dayne and I sat and marvelled at all the years and tears that we have passed together.  Such experience.  So much growth.  Love too.  Now stronger than I ever imagined one could feel.   Kinda neat…. being able to capture some of that in image.  ❤


I am lucky, alive, and free of my past and the things that haunt me when I see the world through my camera lens.  I’m just going to keep livening there…in the happy today.
