Homestead & Winter Skies

Winter Skies 1

Winter Skies 1

Solid, well-made, a homestead house looks southwest to winter skies at dusk. Windowless, vacant and solitary now, the building did once serve as home, refuge from one’s day, shelter during one’s night, that place to regroup, rejuvenate and revive before handling tomorrow. On the crest of a hill, a farmer’s field, wind and snow blow through this former home to farmers and their families.

Listening to – Mike Plume’s Rattle the Cage;  reminds of Mindy Smith’s similar song with same title.

Quote to Inspire – “My photography is a reflection, which comes to life in action and leads to meditation. Spontaneity – the suspended moment – intervenes during action, in the viewfinder.” – Abbas

      Hey there, Meredith:

      The quote does speak toward that moment when the image opportunity realizes itself and the shutter opens and closes; we image finders are a part of that wonder-filled, viewfinder-full moment that photography is ….

      Thanks for looking in. 🙂

      Take care.

      Hey there, Juli:

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Interestingly enough you’ve found a post that holds the same inspirational quote as today’s. Anyways, I’ve revised today’s post with a new quote.

      Thanks for looking in. Take care … 🙂
