DAY 288

overcoming my disquietude 

After a few bad days, with no good news and a sense of unease. What can help me to bring back serenity?

Wise written words

A pretty detail like a bookmark made with a pink ribbon

A tiny and old vase of carved crystal

The velvety texture of sage´s leaves, their unique aroma and beautiful color

Sun light

The composition of a tiny still life - I rather would say a improvised altar- with everyday items

My dance around the objects in order to capture their true essence with my camera

The discovery of their particularities through the lens or depending on perspective

A peace that comes from the impact of the images on my conscience

The feeling of becoming one with what I am creating

A deep sigh that follows concentration and makes heart lighter...


Water starts to boil and tea sachets are claiming me

All is well, my body says and my whole being nods

and a new, and a bit more tranquil day, begins

I always find still life serene as well. It is funny, because I used to hate still life. Now, I can't get enough. Zena, I how oyu can find even more peace and serenity...

Hi Zena,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I'm a little late in coming over here and boy! I'm glad I did.
You write so beautifully.. I love how you described the process of taking a photograph and the 'dance' around the objects trying to capture their essence. Really beautifully put.
xoxo
