DAY 365+54

misty day 

This is my contribution to Photo-Heart Connection this month. I have talked about my walk in the park a few days before a big storm,  when it wasn´t too close but we had been alerted to the danger of bad weather. 
The storm finally arrived past  weekend, the wind was terrible and caused many damages even in the park that I was visiting only a few days ago

That day, when I was leaving it, and was almost in the street that surrounds it, I turned round and took one single photo... this photo


I didn´t pay attention to it when I edited my previous series of photos of this walk and was trying to create a post to talk about it, but when I looked through my files this week, I realized that I felt connected to it. Maybe because it talks about the paradox of calms and storms, and made me think about my own life 

One year ago, when 2012 started, I was dealing with personal issues about visibility and my need to have a more creative and conscious life. I wanted to find a way to show my inner world and feel connected to persons that eventually could be able to understand me.  Throughout the year I  came to understand that photography could be a good help to elaborate  my experiences (to move from inside to outside) and my blog the home where I could make this kind of transition

I was looking forward to keep on exploring the endless possibilities of this discovering when the spare time that I usually had to do my inner work started to fade away. In fact, due to life circumstances, my personal duties and my job are demanding now more time than ever before. And I find myself looking for tiny moments of tranquility, the same one that I gave for granted not so long ago

We are constantly sailing troubled waters (maybe because life is change, and every change involves challenges), going through storms and calms and back to storms again but joy must not be sacrificed just because tranquility seems to be scant. On the contrary, we should make the most of every single moment, because we will never know when we be able to have the same opportunity again

If you think that something must be done, go ahead and do it. If you see something that must be captured… turn round and click

It's amazing how a photo can make us think of what is happening in our own lives, isn't it? I can see why this one spoke to you because of your own inner journey.

What a special capture to you. A moment in your life when you are learning and growing and being challenged. It is amazing how a tranquil scene can have such a story behind it.

A lovely post and a wonderful connection to your image! My OLW for last year was "moment." I have learned to be aware and treasure each moment.

Your photo definitely gives one the sense of calm facing a coming storm...I love the arch of the massive green trees and the way they frame the misty water fountain in the background. Very beautiful meditation!

I too understand how much photography can help heal and expand our desires. congrats on taking that leap and going for that "shot"I have also found if I breathe deep when I am looking for the moments of tranquility they come much more often.
