DAY 365+52

it was a cold afternoon

the light was subtle and dense, 

it was drizzling and the misty atmosphere seemed not to be the best one to take photos

People was going back home very fast
and the usual childish laughs and screams had been replaced for silence 

Even the birds were expectant
what they were awaiting or anticipating, I don´t know 
but they were flying low and slowly 
and tossing their head 

...maybe because the park was almost empty
and the bubbling hustle had been chased away because of the promise of the storm 

And there I was with my camera and the park at my complete disposal
in all its glory 
...and I reveled in the solitude

in the first sprouts of spring

in the new, yet well known, friends

even in the magnificence of nature´s decay 

It was a fast walk, 
the wind was really freezing 
but along it I felt alive and present and joyful 

I rediscovered the magic of the camera which is creating a deep sense of connection,
a nexus between one´s own soul and the soul of the world

I love how you meld your photos and prose to share a whole story and include a bit of life philosophy too! Your close ups are vibrant and I dare say, it's because the sun wasn't shining fully. Sometimes the best days for the camera. Thanks for your persistence in posting ... I know you've been having trouble. If you'd given up, we all would have missed out. Thanks for joining Walk and Click Wednesdays!!

Love the magenta colored flowers and the daisies. I long for spring color. Hopefully soon.

I love the budding flowers - Spring is I it's way. It's wonderful that you were able to experience the moment while everyone was rushing home.

Beautiful spring shots. Somehow the cold doesn't bother me as much when I have the camera in my hand.
