The future is unknown to me. I am thinking of all the unknown things in life...the unexpected both good and bad. The future remains full of them. There is fear of the unknown and also
excitement in the unknown.
I have had a lot of great unexpected, unforgettable and unbelievable moments in my life, mostly when I am inside the natural world. As a child I was unaware of the nature around me and I still am unable to understand all of it.
Nature is so amazing to me. Most of the gifts nature has given to me when I am in the woods taking my photos and that is when I am in touch with my true self and something even greater. It is the time when time stops and I am out of my body and at one with all that is around me.
I love observing and learning little details about nature. It is the ultimate experience when you are allowed to be so close to nature. To be so close to a baby eagle, a baby owl, baby woodpeckers, baby stilts, so that you feel in time to be accepted and part of their family life.
It is the times when a wild animal or bird will become familiar with your blind, clothing and camera so you both are relaxed and you know you are living in that moment and in the place you belong to be in.
I sometimes think of the National Geographic photographers and the rush they must have when they are so immersed in their subject in some far off land in some dangerous place. I am only in my back yard! But I took these photos and I stood that close to that bird or animal, sometimes for a very long time, perhaps the whole day to get the shot I want.
There are so few unconditional things in life. Everything is conditional upon everything else. Each little thing is dependent upon another. If one part breaks then it affects all the rest. It is hard to remain unbroken in a broken world.
I am just putting in whatever photos I find inspiring today from my archives. We are at the letter "u" at the ABC Meme so I incorporated as many u words as I could undertake and as many photos also. I will make them smaller and you can click on them to see them better.
Don't forget to check out my twitter page, my Facebook page, my YouTube site.
