Sun Streams, Mist & Pure Seeing

Mists – El Tizate, Guatemala 2

Sun streams down over a mountain through morning’s mist – condensation and wood smoke – into the community of El Tizate. It is morning, perhaps the last day of our time in El Tizate – we wait for our tour bus; I look out at the world through my camera and lens – rewarded with this extraordinary scene to my foreigner’s eye.

Listening to – three songs from Casting Crowns: ‘Just Be Held,’ ‘Broken Together’ and ‘Follow Me.’

Quote to Inspire – “Poetry’s commitment to concreteness … parallels photography’s commitment to pure seeing. Both imply discontinuity, disarticulated forms and compensatory unity – wrenching things from their context …, bringing things together elliptically….” – Susan Sontag, ‘On Photography’

    Extraordinary is right!

      Hey there, LB:

      It seems like a long while since I’ve been to my blog – a lot of photo-editing has gone on with regard to the Guatemala photos and not much picture-taking.

      There are still the surprising rewards of seeing each image anew and seeing a bit more of what was going on when we were in Guatemala.

      Take care … and I’ll have to have a look around your blog soon.

      🙂
